Large Ecosystem of Channel Partners Choose CloudGenix for Power of App-Defined Networks in Modern IT Environments
SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwired – Aug 1, 2016) – CloudGenix, the software-defined wide-area network (SD-WAN) leader, today announced the CloudGenix Partner Program. The global program supports a rapidly growing ecosystem of CloudGenix channel partners as they meet accelerated demand for the CloudGenix Instant-On Networks (ION) product family. ION delivers an application-defined fabric that eliminates the need for hardware routers, bringing a new economic model to networking and radically changing how networks are built and managed. Just in the last eight weeks, CloudGenix has signed more than 25 additional partners, several of which are also Cisco Gold Certified partners.

With ION, CloudGenix partners add a market-creating new approach to networking to their product portfolios. In stark contrast to traditional or incremental hybrid-WAN-only alternatives, ION delivers the cloud without 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. In addition, enterprises that choose CloudGenix ION eliminate complex networking configurations and reduce WAN costs by as much as 70 percent.
“Our customer environments are evolving rapidly,” said Rich Falcone, executive vice president, CDI. “Modern applications require a new approach to networking that is agile and responsive to the business. 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.”
“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. This flexibility enables our partners to be at the forefront of creating a new market, while de-risking introduction of breakthrough technologies”, said Robert Sexton, vice president of channel, CloudGenix. “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.”
CloudGenix member partners work with a variety of verticals, reflecting the appeal of CloudGenix to all types of organizations. For example, Teq, a reseller in the education industry, offers CloudGenix as a solution to educators as they shift to a digital curriculum. CDI LLC, a reseller that architects, deploys and manages multi-platform hybrid IT solutions, sells CloudGenix to its financial, legal, retail and communications customers.
