Recently, we had a chance to sit down with Principal Engineer Bob Stolzberg, who spoke about all things Ecosystem. One of Bob's main functions is to work with third-party companies and vendors, better known as partners, to integrate their technology into the CenturyLink Cloud platform via automation. This integration ultimately brings the partner technologies into the CenturyLink Cloud Marketplace for our customers to consume and use.

Companies like Microsoft, Dynatrace, and Vormetric are prime examples of partners that have integrated and certified their technologies within the platform at CenturyLink Cloud. Check out the Ecosystem Program Partner Resource Guide to learn more about technical integration via third-party technology with CenturyLink Cloud, which takes place by leveraging one of our automation methods (templates, blueprints, APIs, and add-ons). For companies seeking to integrate their products and services with CenturyLink Cloud, check out the CenturyLink Marketplace Provider Program Guide, which outlines the process expectations for information on any requisite certification requirements and qualifying considerations.
