Radware selects Xchanging as best partner

17 Nov 2011

Data Integration, an Xchanging company, is honoured for virtualisation achievements

Radware (NASDAQ: RDWR), a global leader of application delivery and application security solutions for virtual and cloud data centers, has awarded Xchanging’s (LSE:XCH) network and systems integration company, Data Integration, best Radware VADI (Virtual Application Delivery Infrastructure) partner at a gala dinner ceremony in Prague.

The award, which is in recognition of partners who excel in specific areas, applauds
Data Integration’s end-to-end network design and deployment project for a global mobile operator. As a result of exponential growth, the global mobile operator needed to increase network performance to 10 GB at the same time as simplifying the infrastructure and reducing cost. Radware’s virtualised application delivery solution has enabled the operator to replace ageing infrastructure with virtualised controllers, using less space and delivering faster performance.

Virtualisation is a key market driver which can be found in almost any organisation's network - from mid-sized companies through large enterprises up to very large hosting companies, carrier data centers and cloud service providers. While the scope of virtualisation may differ between different sizes of organisations, the business drivers for the virtual data center are the same - it is all about creating a consolidated, cost-effective, agile, highly available and performing data center.

Simon Altman, Regional Director UK & Ireland at Radware commented, “We have a strong partnership with Data Integration and are delighted to award them “best Radware VADI partner”. We are constantly impressed by their customer focus and desire to deliver innovative solutions.”

Paddy Byrne, Executive Director at Xchanging added, “Many of our customers, particularly those with online transactions, are looking for intelligent network infrastructure to provide greater capability and awareness. For operators where voice calls are only 60% of their network, managing the flow of data is key. You can’t keep adding boxes, you need to be smart and virtual VADI switches can deliver the performance customers require.”
