The Lenovo Data Center Program is a tiered value-added channel program that allows our highest-selling data center partners to reap the rewards of loyalty and success. Clear, simple, and predictable, the Data Center Program is designed to elevate your professional credibility and propel your profitability.

We want to reward our dedicated partners with the best programs in the industry and the Lenovo Data Center Program is deliberately designed to propel our partners along the three paths of profitability: Growth, New Customer Acquisition, and Selling Complex Solutions. We pay you to succeed!

Program Levels & Qualifications

Authorized, Silver, Gold and Platinum

As an existing Lenovo authorized reseller, you’re familiar with the current partner program benefits. The Data Center Program, which includes the official designations of Silver, Gold, and Platinum, provides more robust incentives like rebates, development funds, and access to dedicated resources.

The Lenovo Data Center Program is clear and straightforward, and there are no complicated qualification diagrams or confusing requirements. Our prestigious partner tier levels simply hinge on two things: Lenovo Data Center Certifications and annual revenue thresholds.

The Lenovo Data Center badges of distinction can be proudly displayed on your company website and marketing collateral to boost your marketplace influence.
