Mindware Unveils New Strategic Cloud Offering for Digital Transformation Built on Microsoft and Riverbed Platforms
Mindware, a leading distributor of quality IT products to the Middle
East and North Africa, today launched a new offering designed to
simplify Microsoft Azure cloud adoption and accelerate performance to
users everywhere through the integration of digital performance
solutions from Riverbed (News - Alert). Responding to the challenges regional
organizations face with the adoption and migration of services to the
cloud, the service will be available to customers in the UAE, Oman,
Kuwait and Bahrain during the initial rollout.

"The use of cloud technology is on the rise in today's digital world, as
businesses are becoming increasingly aware of the tangible benefits
cloud computing provides in terms of agility, efficiency and
profitability," said Nicholas Argyrides, Deputy GM at Mindware.
"However, migrating and hosting services in the cloud is a process
fraught with numerous challenges, from the lack of visibility into
traffic, to loss of control over application delivery and performance
across the hybrid WAN."
Mindware's latest cloud innovation enables value-added resellers and
cloud solution providers to offer their end customers a globally
orchestrated and optimized connection to the Microsoft Azure cloud
computing platform. The new offering will leverage Riverbed's Digital
Experience Management solution for end-user experience monitoring and
Next-Generation Infrastructure including Riverbed® SteelConnect™, a
Software-Defined Wide Area Networking (SD-WAN) solution and Riverbed®
SteelHead™ for hybrid WAN optimization.
"The seamless combination of Riverbed Digital Performance and Microsoft
Azure Cloud solutions results in a unique level of end-to-end
visibility, secure cloud connectivity, network control and optimized
performance for cloud-hosted applications. We see this as a service that
all industry verticals can benefit from since the use of public and
hybrid clouds is rapidly becoming a mainstream IT practice across the
Middle East," Argyrides added.
As a long standing partner of both Microsoft and Riverbed, Mindware will
work closely with its value-added resellers to deliver the training and
support they need on these vendor's platforms to take the solution
bundles to market. Through Mindware's network of Microsoft cloud
specialist partners, customers will be able to benefit from highly
qualified Professional Services teams.
"The future of the cloud is hybrid and adoption in the Middle East is
currently dominated by software-as-a-service offerings," explained Mena
Migally, Regional Director, Territory and Telco for Middle East, Turkey
and North Africa, at Riverbed. "While SaaS simplifies cloud migration,
many organizations require the ability to combine the customization and
control of their own applications with the flexibility and scalability
of the cloud. By combining the Infrastructure-as-a-Service from the
global leader in the field, with Riverbed's innovative SD-WAN solution
and market-leading performance optimization and Digital Experience
Management visibility solutions, Mindware is delivering a compelling
offering that will set customers on track for hybrid cloud success and
to maximize digital performance."
This latest announcement builds on Mindware's focus on cloud services
having previously launched a cloud marketplace for its Middle East and
Africa partners providing an extensive array of subscription-based
offerings, all conveniently aggregated on an online management tool.
