Malvern, PA (PressExposure) March 15, 2011 -- Comm Solutions(www.commsolutions.com ), one of the area's largest value added multi-vendor technology leaders, announced today that the company attained platinum partner status in the Riverbed® Partner Network Program (RPN), based on the completion of certifications, increased sales volume, and successful customer deployments of Riverbed Technology IT performance solutions - with specific focus in the wide area network (WAN) optimization market.
More than 9,200 organizations worldwide, across a wide range of markets, depend on Riverbed to understand, optimize and consolidate their IT infrastructure. Riverbed delivers hardware, software and virtualized solutions that overcome performance issues caused by distance, distributed computing, and ever increasing amounts of data. Virtualization, consolidation and cloud computing promise huge cost savings and improved efficiencies, but as users move farther from their data, slow applications and file transfers can stall these strategic initiatives. Riverbed delivers to the remote office and mobile workers the same "local" performance, no matter where the private data center or public cloud may be. Riverbed continues building on its success in the WAN optimization and network application performance visibility markets with new and innovative solutions for accelerating cloud storage and access to applications and data deployed in the public cloud.
"We are very pleased to have achieved this level of distinction and recognition from Riverbed. Our staff has worked extremely hard to master the Riverbed products and are eager to continue the growth we have experienced to date," noted Paul Black, President of Comm Solutions. "This clearly demonstrates our expertise and relationship with Riverbed to our customers," said William Buckalew, Vice President of Operations. "The benefits provided through our Platinum Partner status will allow us to continue to enhance the offerings that we currently offer our customers."
"Comm Solutions has demonstrated a deep commitment to solving their customers WAN-related performance issues associated with virtualization, remote office connectivity, disaster recovery and server consolidation by deploying Riverbed solutions," said Randy Schirman, vice president of worldwide channel sales, at Riverbed. "We are pleased to welcome them to Platinum level status within RPN."
RPN is a comprehensive program designed to provide growth and profitability for each type and size of Riverbed partner, including Large Account Resellers, Enterprise VARs and Small and Mid-sized Enterprises (SMEs). It is a compelling platform for partners to drive their organization's growth by leveraging a consistent sales engagement with Riverbed, as well as lead generation, training / certification and sales incentive programs that drive success both for the partners and their customers.
