CloudGenix, a software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) provider
, has announced the CloudGenix Partner Program
to support the rapidly growing ecosystem of its channel partners. This is in lieu with their accelerated demand for the Instant-On Networks (ION) product family.
ION delivers an application-defined fabric that is designed to eliminate the need for hardware routers, which according to the company, brings a new economic model to networking and radically changes how networks are built and managed. With ION, CloudGenix claims that its partners can add a market-creating new approach to networking to their product portfolios.
“Our customer environments are evolving rapidly. Modern applications require a new approach to networking that is agile and responsive to the business,” said Rich Falcone, Executive Vice President, CDI.
CloudGenix is the only vendor that provides an SD-WAN solution that is truly app-defined, which means that our clients get a solution matched to their business needs. The alternatives simply don’t work for modern applications because of their inherent complexity. We look forward to continuing to work with CloudGenix to build a business that helps transform how our clients build networks and manage their remote offices.
The company claims that ION is different from traditional or incremental hybrid-WAN-only alternatives as it delivers the cloud without any compromise to the remote office, ensures high performance for transactional and rich media applications over a hybrid-WAN, and virtualizes the branch — truly delivering on the promise of an SD-WAN.
“CloudGenix is 100 percent channel-driven. The reason we have record numbers of Cisco Gold Certified partners signing up is because the CloudGenix SD-WAN solution can be introduced either as the best complement to a customer’s existing Cisco network, or as a replacement for legacy Cisco WAN routers,” said Robert Sexton, Vice President, Channel, CloudGenix.
“This flexibility enables our partners to be at the forefront of creating a new market, while de-risking introduction of breakthrough technologies,” Sexton said. “Our rich program provides our partners with the resources they need to generate more revenue, expand their offerings and collaborate with CloudGenix to attract new business,” he added.
