Windstream Lifts Direct-Only Sales of Data Center Services

Windstream announced plans to start selling its key data center products through the channel, lifting the direct-only sales models that were previously in place for its co-location, dedicated servers, Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and unified email management solutions.

The company said it's already put about half of its channel managers through data center certification training, with more expected to complete the training this summer.

"The addition of these products to our partners' portfolios will allow them to offer their customers a more robust Windstream solution—from the network all the way out to the cloud," said Don Perkins, senior vice president of business marketing for Windstream, in a statement.
