Structured Achieves Platinum Partner Status with Riverbed

PORTLAND, OR – July 11, 2011 – Structured, a leading information technology and systems integrator of secure and scalable IT solutions and services, today announced it has achieved platinum partner status in the Riverbed® Partner Network Program (RPN), a global value-added reseller (VAR) program for selling IT performance solutions from Riverbed Technology. Structured achieved platinum status in the RPN program based on the completion of certifications, increased sales volumes and successful customer deployments of Riverbed wide area network (WAN) optimization solutions, and the authorization to sell Riverbed Cascade®, an advanced network and application performance analysis and visibility solution. Structured combines Riverbed solutions with its own expertise, tools, resources and knowledge in information technology and systems integration to improve remote and mobile employee productivity, enable private clouds, and provide enterprise-wide network and application visibility for its customers. “Structured assesses business requirements and architects technology solutions that address our clients’ tactical and strategic needs, both now and into the future,” said Ron Fowler, Structured’s president and CEO. “Riverbed IT performance products have become a key component in our deployed solutions to ensure success for our customers’ strategic IT initiatives, including data center consolidation, virtualization, remote office connectivity and disaster recovery. “Structured has leveraged the broad resources Riverbed provides to its partners to achieve success,” said Randy Schirman, vice president of worldwide channel sales at Riverbed. “We are pleased with Structured’s attainment of the platinum level and look forward to a continued productive partnership with them in the future.” More than 13,000 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 application-aware network performance management (NPM) markets with new and innovative solutions for accelerating cloud storage and access to applications and data deployed in public, private and hybrid clouds.
