Riverbed To Grow Partner-Delivered Managed Services
Application performance infrastructure leader Riverbed Technology has come up with a powerful new way to help its channel network.
The firm has announced plans to make its Riverbed Application Performance Platform come as a standard component into all its service offerings for application and data delivery.
The immediate benefit of that for service provider firms working with its technology: a massively expanded range of service delivery options, specifically in the area of location-independent computing.
“With organisations shifting to buying managed services from both traditional service providers and cloud service providers, Riverbed is expanding its go-to-market capability in this area as a key initiative in 2014,” confirms its president of global field operations, Dave Peranich.
The ultimate goal for Peranich and his team: make it easy for customers to turn distance and location into a competitive advantage, which will be done “by working with our partners to offer all the necessary capabilities as easy, fast, managed turnkey services”.
The move’s been welcomed by the industry, with a spokesperson at MSP and Riverbed customer Orange Business Services noting that, “By building solutions specifically with service delivery in mind, Riverbed is in sync with our own service strategy”.
