Why Cisco Hyperflex Authorization is a win for partners
According to IDC’s FutureScape 2018 report, by 2020, 60% of all enterprises will be in the process of implementing an organization-wide digital platform strategy and 90% of enterprises will be using multiple cloud services or platforms.
 
With so many IT resources moving to so many cloud platforms, IT professionals face a significant challenge to manage it all. HyperFlex is Cisco’s solution for simplifying today’s multicloud, hybrid IT reality. HyperFlex includes a high-performance, low-latency hyperconverged platform designed with an end-to-end software-defined infrastructure, including solutions for core, edge and multicloud environments.
 

The platform includes:

While many data center specializations enable IT solution providers to gain expertise in areas relevant to hyperconverged infrastructure, they don’t specifically enable them to deliver HyperFlex solutions to target this growing market. To address this gap, Cisco launched the new HyperFlex Authorization on April 24, 2019, helping partners build their hyperconverged infrastructure practice and deliver HyperFlex solutions to customers. The authorization is available to all qualified partners worldwide who meet the program’s role-based requirements and successfully apply for the authorization.
 
One of the primary benefits of the program is that it helps partners build the capability to deliver Cisco HyperFlex solutions and promote their brands as trusted Cisco Authorized Partners for HyperFlex solutions, through recognition in Partner Locator, marketing campaigns and other tools. Additionally, partners can receive up to 77% up-front discounts on Cisco HyperFlex solutions and simplify deal registrations.
 
Next steps
Partners interested in applying for the Cisco HyperFlex Authorization should complete the following steps:
 
1. View and complete the detailed requirements associated with the authorization.
2. Complete and submit an application in the Program Management and Application (PMA) tool.
