Riverbed Named to UBM Channel's CRN Data Center 100 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/22/13 --  Riverbed Technology
(NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced it has been
named to CRN's 2013 Data Center 100 list. This annual list recognizes
technology vendors for powering, supporting, and protecting today's
data center services in an environmentally and economically friendly
manner, while boosting efficiency and productivity. Organizations
worldwide leverage Riverbed(R) solutions to address performance
challenges as they re-architect their IT infrastructures in pursuit
of cost efficiency, manageability, and flexibility.  
Key IT initiatives, such as virtualization and cloud computing, are
challenging existing network designs and fueling a new wave of data
center transformation. New virtual, cloud, and software-defined data
center architectures enable global IT organizations to effectively
consolidate infrastructure and reduce costs, but also introduce new
complexities and performance bottlenecks that can cause the end-user
experience to suffer.  
By providing partners with the broadest portfolio of performance
solutions that span wide area network (WAN) optimization,
application-aware network performance management (NPM), application
delivery, web content optimization (WCO), and cloud data protection,
Riverbed enables organizations to increase productivity and
efficiency, enhance business resilience, and control costs.  
"The Riverbed partner program provides our partner community with
performance solutions, training and incentives to support their
continued growth," said Johnna Bowley, senior director, Global
Channel Strategy and Programs at Riverbed. "Being recognized as one
of the CRN Data Center 100 underscores our commitment to delivering
the performance solutions and programs that help our partners deliver
the speed, cost savings, and control global IT organizations need to
optimize their next generation data centers and deliver a superlative
user experience." 
"The 2013 Data Center 100 list recognizes vendors that, over the
course of 2012, have shown a dedication to the innovation and
advancement of today's data center services," said Kelley Damore,
vice president and editorial director for UBM Channel. "The recent
upsurge in cloud computing has solution providers searching for new
ways to ensure their clients maintain connectivity while mitigating
costs and security threats. We congratulate each vendor on the 2013
Data Center 100 list for providing a significant growth opportunity
for solution providers to build their business by offering
cutting-edge products and services to customers."  
Selected by CRN's editorial staff, the 2013 Data Center 100 list is
featured in the January issue of CRN Magazine and will be featured
online at www.crn.com.
