MINNEAPOLIS -- March 25, 2013

Hardware.com, a global leader in networking hardware, architectures,
procurement, and support, announced today that its U.S. division has been
awarded the Elite Partner status in the Juniper Networks Partner Advantage
program. The distinction recognizes Hardware.com’s technical expertise in
Juniper routers, switches, and security solutions, as well as Hardware.com’s
ongoing commitment to offer customers reliable, efficient, and cost-effective
network solutions that best fit their customers’ needs. The elevated partner
status follows Hardware.com’s Elite Partner Status in the UK and recent
recognition as Juniper Networks’ “EMEA Best Deal of the Year 2012” in England
and Ireland.

“We are delighted to take our partnership with Juniper to the next level
through this distinguished certification,” said Rick Dykhoff, Director of
Channel Sales at Hardware.com. “A testament to our team’s technical
capabilities and outstanding customer service, the Elite Partner status allows
us to further serve our customers as they implement integrated, viable
solutions for the next-generation data center.”

The highest level of accreditation for Juniper partners, the Elite Partner
designation is limited to organizations who have achieved a diverse and
rigorous set of requirements from Juniper Networks. To keep the invite-only
status, partners must achieve competitive levels of technical and educational
training criteria annually and maintain their labs with the latest
technologies in the Juniper platform. Although the Elite Partner designation
generally takes two to four years to achieve, Hardware.com achieved
accreditation within a year.

“We congratulate Hardware.com on achieving this Elite status, which reflects
their in-depth understanding of our solutions and their ability to support
Juniper customers through every aspect of the IT lifecycle,” said Mark
Bennetts, Americas Commercial Sales, Juniper Networks. “Hardware.com’s ability
to serve as a single source of support for Juniper networks differentiates
them from the competition and places them among a select group of
organizations to hold this distinction.”

The Elite Partner status from Juniper Networks is the first of several
accreditations Hardware.com hopes to achieve in 2013. Featuring a
multi-disciplined approach to networking and data center architecture,
Hardware.com offers the technical expertise and product portfolio necessary to
help customers build networks that complement their business.
