Under this agreement, Promark Technology will distribute Portworx Enterprise to its growing base of U.S. channel partners.

Additionally, Portworx today announced that the company doubled its strategic partnerships in 2019, with over 20 new partnerships from IBM, Cisco, Google, Microsoft, and other leading enterprise software companies.

To support this growth, Portworx is also launching a new partner program and portal to provide resources and tools for collaboration that make it easier for enterprises to run mission-critical, stateful applications in containers. Benefits include technical and sales libraries, partner training, joint-case studies, co-marketing, field engagement, and joint solutions for containerized applications running on-prem and in hybrid- and multi-cloud environments.
