The nature of business today requires a robust network, and the power of software is delivering. It’s no surprise the SD-WAN space is pegged for exponential growth in the coming years, so players are planting flags in the hopes of getting ahead. A field full of startups, and some very familiar names, is maturing with innovation and performance playing the role of primary differentiators.
Separating from the pack is a challenge for most, but one startup is making it look rather easy. Silicon Valley’s CloudGenix burst onto the scene with authority. A David that time after time takes down Goliath is making its presence felt in a big way. Today, it cast its net a bit further with the announcement of its newest distribution partner, Promark Technologies, Inc.
“Interest and demand for SD-WAN is growing and the service opportunity for channel partners is significant and opens the door for a more strategic conversation around the needs of the business,” said Dale Foster, executive director and GM of Promark Technology. “With its application-defined fabric, CloudGenix ION is a flexible SD-WAN solution channel partners can rely on to meet industry demands now and in the future.”
The agreement gains access to new markets for CloudGenix and its ION application-defined SD-WAN solution, which comes at a tipping point for networking. Promark is a preeminent value-added distributor that resides on the fore of emerging technologies, like SD-WAN. And, with its deep channel partner roots and technology expertise, it offers an advantage in expanding CloudGenix’s presence in the enterprise.
Regardless of which analyst prediction you prefer, SD-WAN is set for explosive growth as a result of multiple factors. Our SaaSy reality coupled with cost savings and overall performance demands are driving this nascent technology.
“This agreement represents another step forward in our mission to bring cost-effective, performance-focused and future-proof SD-WAN technology to today’s businesses,” said Kumar Ramachandran (News – Alert), CEO of CloudGenix. “As a trusted name in the industry, Promark is the ideal ally to highlight CloudGenix as the vanguard in SD-WAN technology.”
