Riverbed launches Riverbed-Ready Technology Alliance Programme
Programme to extend reach of Riverbed Solutions for hybrid enterprises
Riverbed Technology has launched the Riverbed-Ready Technology Alliance program with 17 charter programme members.
Launched at the Riverbed FORCE 2014 conference in San Jose, the new programme offers technology partners the opportunity to bring new capabilities to Riverbed customers.
"The new Riverbed-Ready programme enhances our ability to offer integrated solutions that create new revenue opportunities for our Riverbed-Ready partners and deliver comprehensive tested and validated solutions to our joint customers," said Nino D'Auria, VP Channels EMEA.
Riverbed-Ready partners will focus in areas such as security, cloud and virtualisation, business applications, network performance management, application performance management, networking, and storage.
Partners can leverage Riverbed open APIs and additional development tools to help with customisation, integration, and automation.
Riverbed Application Performance Platform product families include: Riverbed SteelCentral for end-to-end visibility, analytics, and diagnostics across the hybrid enterprise; Riverbed SteelHead to optimise and control application delivery throughout the hybrid enterprise; Riverbed SteelFusion to consolidate branch infrastructure in the data centre and optimise delivery of apps/data to branches; and Riverbed SteelApp to optimise application delivery and load balancing in hybrid cloud environments.
"As a Riverbed-Ready Technology Alliance partner, we have collaborated to develop an integrated solution that provides cost-effective, application-aware network and application performance management, monitoring and visibility for the hybrid enterprise where people, apps and data are everywhere," said Ed Chapman, vice president of Business Development and Alliances at Arista, a Platinum-level Riverbed-Ready member. "With Arista and Riverbed, customers get a joint-tested solution that works as expected."
