MADISON, WI: The proposition of creating a partnership deal to expedite the business capabilities and reach is an age old trend followed by many major and minor companies alike. This very idea more often than not works since all the parties tend to profit from it. The most recent amongst a host of institutions to embrace such a program is Riverbed Technology which developed the Riverbed Ready Technology Alliances. This alliance program integrates new technologies that extend the functionality of the platform, creating new market opportunities for both Riverbed and its partners. The latest to join this alliance is Sonic Foundry, a specialist in web casting, enterprise video content management and event capture services.

Through this partnership, Sonic will play a major part in expanding the value and influence of Riverbed’s solutions whilst helping customers master the video challenges of the hybrid enterprise. Sonic’s Mediasite Enterprise Video Platform is an automated and scalable system for creating, publishing, searching and managing videos.

“Joining Riverbed-Ready allows us to address the unique video challenges of the corporate enterprise, by offering an integrated, tested solution for high quality, scalable and secure video delivery behind the firewall,” says Gary Weis, CEO, Sonic Foundry.

The integration of Mediasite with Riverbed solutions offers advanced technologies and solutions to accelerate and optimize enterprise video delivery without disrupting the existing network traffic.

“Through the Riverbed-Ready program, Riverbed and Sonic Foundry will provide our customers integrated solutions that extend the Riverbed Application Performance Platform,” “Together, Riverbed and its partners are providing end-to-end solutions that provide deep visibility, optimization, and control to inspect, direct, and protect workloads across the hybrid enterprise,” says Katie Colbert, Vice President, Global Technology Alliances, Riverbed.

The Riverbed Ready Platform is categorized into four parts, namely: SteelHead, SteelFusion, SteelScript and SteelCentral. Apart from providing a sophisticated API and WAN optimization solution, it also enhances performance management and reduces the TCO.
