Santa Clara, Calif. – Dec. 19, 2016 – Cohesity, the pioneer of hyperconverged secondary storage, today announced significant domestic and international growth for its channel partner program after its first year on the market, along with awards for two of its top-producing partners.

Today, Cohesity announced that the global technology reseller SHI International won its 2016 Revolution Award for Top National Partner and that Chicago-based StorageIT won the award for Top Regional Partner.
On top of the rapid growth in membership for the Cohesity partner program, channel partners have achieved remarkable productivity levels.
