May 05 Learn how to AVOID OVERPAYING for Riverbed Networking Hardware Maintenance
Knowing the critical milestone dates for each piece of network equipment in your inventory is key when assessing the real value of expensive Riverbed support contracts. XSi’s ability to accurately catalog End-of-Life, End-of-Support, and End-of-Software-Maintenance dates on all your equipment empowers you to make informed financial decisions about supporting and maintaining your equipment. Quite frankly, much Riverbed hardware has exceeded End of Support (EoS), as well as End of Software Maintenance (EoSW).
There’s simply no reason to pay Riverbed for support on EoL or EoS hardware. Instead, a Hybrid Hardware Support model creates the best possible service at the fairest possible maintenance price. XSi will discover all the potential cost containment solutions across your Riverbed asset base and present highly customized support options that provide a secure, financially efficient and technically resilient network environment. In our 30th year of business, we provide a geat deal more than hardware/parts replacement.
