What is the Emulex Connect Partner Program?
At Emulex, we believe in the strength and power of relationships. That’s why we created the Emulex Connect Partner Program where our channel partners can connect technology to market trends, connect information to knowledge, connect tools to prospects and connect products to revenue.
Emulex’s three-tiered partner community provides our partners with the tools, training, support and information required to promote and sell network and storage connectivity solutions. So whether resellers currently sell servers, storage or networking solutions, Emulex has industry-leading products and programs to extend their offering and significantly increase margins.

At the end of each calendar quarter, Emulex performs a review of every Emulex Connect Partner. This review examines each partner’s performance in terms of their qualifying criteria and determines whether the partner has over achieved their current tier’s minimum requirements. If so, Emulex will contact the partner and invite them to move to the next tier level. Partners may also contact Emulex at reseller@ to request a review of their current tier status. emulex.com

During the Emulex quarterly review, if it is determined that a partner is not achieving the minimum qualifying criteria for the current tier level, Emulex will place the partner on sales or technical probation for a quarter.
If the partner does not achieve the necessary levels during this probationary quarter, Emulex will reduce the partner’s tier level.
Emulex Expert training is offered exclusively to the members of the Emulex Connect Partner Program. Once partners complete the Emulex Expert sales and/or technical tracks, they will each get a personalized certificate. After completion, partners will have the opportunity to move to a higher tier level and gain access to additional free demo units, customizable sales incentives and more.
