Nvidia has named the 13 recipients of this year's Nvidia Partner Network awards in the Americas, and they include several repeat winners, like World Wide Technology and Insight Enterprises, as well as newcomers, like International Computer Concepts and Sterling.

Standing out among Nvidia's 350 channel partners in North America, the winners of the 2024 Nvidia Partner Network Partner of the Year Awards were announced Tuesday at the company's first in-person GTC event in nearly five years. The awards recognize partners who are selling Nvidia's products and services at a fast clip and making major investments with the chip designer.

Nvidia honored the partners a day after the Santa Clara, Calif.-based company revealed its plan to defend and grow its dominant position in the AI computing space with a new set of significantly more powerful chips and systems along with software meant to accelerate development.

In an exclusive interview with CRN, Nvidia Americas Channel Chief Craig Weinstein said the 13 award-winning partners represent fast-growing AI businesses that "deeply understand" Nvidia's full-stack platform, which includes GPUs, CPUs and data processing units as well as servers like the DGX systems and software and services like Nvidia AI Enterprise.

"They are not just leading with GPUs. This is a conversation around Nvidia software architecture, Nvidia hardware architecture [and] the way that intersects with unique and important ISVs [independent software vendors] that deliver unique capabilities to industries that we know are adopting [such solutions]," said Weinstein, vice president of the Americas partner organization.

World Wide Technology

The St. Louis, Mo.-based company received this commendation for "its leadership, dedication and expertise in advancing the adoption of AI with Nvidia's portfolio of purpose-built systems, data center networking, software and accelerated computing solutions across machine learning, digital twins, Nvidia Omniverse and visualization," according to Nvidia.
