SAN FRANCISCO -- Riverbed Technology, the performance leader in application acceleration on wide area networks, today announced the launch of its Riverbed Partner Network. The Riverbed Partner Network is a key component of Riverbed's global go-to-market strategy as the company scales its sales organization to accommodate the exponential growth in demand for its wide-area data services (WDS) solutions. Riverbed recently announced its 200th customer in just over a year of shipping product. In Q2, 2005, the company doubled its customer base.

The Riverbed Partner Network is made up of the best networking and storage-oriented solution providers in the industry who Riverbed supports with tools, technical assistance, and people to facilitate business growth and overall success in selling Riverbed's patented and groundbreaking WDS solutions.

"Every 10 years or so, a new product appears that revolutionizes how people work," said Hayes Drumright, president, Trace3. "Riverbed's Steelhead is one of those technologies. It is one of the most incredible product lines that we've ever represented. Steelhead allows users on the WAN to experience LAN-like performance and it's a massive cost saver. In addition, it's simple to use and install. When we first heard the claims, we were incredulous. But then we saw the box in action and realized that it actually worked. The response from customers is often the same. When they see the box in action, the decision to buy is an easy one. We're batting a thousand with Riverbed -- we've come out ahead in every deal proposed with them."

The Riverbed Partner Network program offers two levels of partnership: Certified and Premier. All partners who join the network start at the Certified level. As partners grow with Riverbed and achieve certain milestones, they can achieve Premier status, with additional support and compensation benefits.
