Why Partner with Webscale?
From award-winning support to industry-leading technology, there are many reasons to join forces with Webscale.
The Webscale Partner Program offers a synergistic approach to partner development, incentivizing partners to advance in the program and align their sales/marketing efforts with Webscale more closely.
A Win-Win Partnership
The program’s goal is to leverage our combined domain expertise, innovative technology, and award-winning customer support to deliver exceptional digital experiences for our joint customers, all while unlocking growth opportunities for both parties.
Generate New Revenue Streams
Webscale partners receive immediate benefits for referrals through a simple electronic contract that requires no commitment. Once you make a warm and qualified introduction, we bear the cost of selling, closing, implementing, servicing, and delighting the businesses referred. The end result is unmatched customer loyalty, significantly better customer retention, and regular commissions as new revenue streams.
Flexible Deployment Models
Webscale understands that every customer is somewhat unique, with different requirements of their hosting provider. We have developed flexible deployment models varying from a proxy-only approach for specific needs, such as security or performance, through presentation layer-only designed for PWA or headless use cases, all the way to fully managed hosting in the public cloud.
With experience gained from migrating, hosting, optimizing, managing, and supporting thousands of ecommerce storefronts in the public cloud, Webscale has developed a robust set of best practices around web application deployment and maintenance.
Ecommerce websites undergo frequent updates to react to competitive pricing, inventory availability, and marketing events. Webscale enables a continuous delivery framework that is software-centric, programmable, automated, and repeatable while ensuring reliability, availability, security, and performance across multiple releases of the application.
DevOps philosophies are being broadly adopted by ecommerce businesses to procure infrastructure in scheduled intervals and increase deployment speed. Webscale deploys storefronts as a software-defined infrastructure, introducing automation workflows that eliminate human errors, while saving time as application changes are published.
Ecommerce applications require different environments – typically, a development, staging, and production environment, so that code changes can pass through various stages of quality assurance (QA) before being published. Webscale creates environments with a single-click, actively scales out application servers, mirrors the database, and regularly takes verified backups.
User Acceptance Testing
Webscale enables A/B testing and blue-green deployments, where you can evaluate different web page designs. By directing a portion of traffic to an alternate server set, or tagging a part of the user sessions, the customer response can be compared to help business owners decide which experience is most likely to enhance revenue.
The Triangle of Support
Webscale works with partners to create a triangle of support – with our joint customer at the tip, you at one corner, and Webscale at the other. We don’t point fingers – we work with you to quickly identify, troubleshoot, and resolve issues, regardless of the root cause. Furthermore, Webscale can seamlessly integrate with your DevSecOps and CI/CD processes to ensure rapid time to resolution.

The Webscale Customer Portal
The Webscale Customer Portal was designed for our own support team, to gain insight and visibility into our customers’ storefronts to better manage their availability, security and performance. Its depth of analytical data is unlike anything offered by other hosting providers in this segment. We make the exact same tool available to our customers and our partners, ensuring we are all seeing the same data, and so we can quickly identify any issues that may be impacting the storefront.
Partner Engagement Model
Our commission and incentive structure is designed simply to encourage and support our partners, to jointly drive more business, and achieve strong financial benefits.
