Riverbed-Ready Technology Alliance Program to Create Broad Ecosystem
Riverbed is pleased to announce the launch of our new technology alliance program, Riverbed-Ready. The goal of the Riverbed-Ready program is to build a large and vibrant ecosystem of partners around the Riverbed Application Performance Platform to bring the benefits of Location-Independent Computing to our joint customers.
The Riverbed Application Performance Platform is the most comprehensive platform to enable the hybrid enterprise to embrace location-independent computing, so that business objectives—not technical constraints—drive how applications and data are delivered.
Through the Riverbed-Ready program we will:
- Integrate exciting new technologies that extend the functionality of our platform
- Extend the value and functionality of Riverbed solutions for our joint customers
- Create new opportunities for our reseller and technology partners
The Riverbed-Ready program offers three levels of membership; Silver, Gold and Platinum featuring increasing levels of engagement, marketing support and solution integration. Riverbed-Ready members can test their solutions with Riverbed products while Gold and Platinum partners have the opportunity for deeper product integration and joint testing, and upon successful conclusion, receive the Riverbed-Ready Tested logo.
Our joint customers are the primary beneficiary of the Riverbed-Ready Technology Alliance program as they gain the benefit of integrated solutions that more fully meet their needs. By reviewing the solutions available in the solution center, customers can quickly learn what is available and understand the unique value delivered by each solution.
Regardless of the level at which a partner joins, Riverbed-Ready offers a rich set of benefits that may include joint marketing, sales and channel alignment, access to online training, product information, awareness for the integrated solution in addition to free software and discounts on lab units. All members gain the benefit of Riverbed’s global sales and channel reach and can mutually leverage each other to provide more to joint customers and prospects.
Reseller partners and Riverbed-Ready members also benefit from this exciting new program as they gain access to integrated and tested solutions which in the past would have required substantial time, manpower and system investments to complete the testing.
Interest and feedback from partners on the Riverbed-Ready program has been extremely positive and we are pleased by the the functionality of the solutions available today in addition to those that are coming in the future.
