On Monday, Canonical announced the launch of its new Ubuntu Advantage (UA) partner program. Enterprise customers will benefit from the new partner program by having local resources and expertise to call on.

Resellers joining the Ubuntu Advantage partner program can tap into additional revenue streams by expanding their services portfolio. In addition to the commission of UA, resellers can also add additional services such as hardware, software, implementation and training services. Partners also receive marketing, technical, commercial and pre-sales support and an assigned account manager as part of the UA program.

The program is launching with global partners, including CSS in the US, Asia and EMEA, Ashisuto in Japan, RedPill Linpro in Scandinavia and Alterway in France.

“Partnering with Canonical for our Ubuntu offerings on the desktop, server and cloud is already giving CSS a significant advantage of being able to provide top-tier solutions and support to our customers,” said Steve Lack, Director of Global Alliances at CSS.
