Riverbed Support Options: Hardware Maintenance from XSi

If you’re not yet familiar with “independent hardware maintenance” as a viable cost containment strategy, you really should be. In fact, 71% of the world’s largest companies are relying on this strategy to optimize their IT budgets (per a Gartner study), as well as for the service flexibility we’re known to provide (per an IDC study). As more companies are now choosing to extend hardware lifecycles and stave off any expensive tech refresh, you’ll likely benefit from reviewing this freely available white paper – Click Here to download.

A Gartner-recognized and global leader in independent networking maintenance, XSi provides Riverbed support and lower-cost maintenance agreements (XSi also supports Cisco, Juniper, Extreme, F5 Networks) for some of this country’s most respected companies, including several US federal agencies. Gartner and independent hardware support providers refer to this unique maintenance model as “Hybrid Hardware Support.”  This term refers to when in-warranty network hardware are maintained by the OEM, during the warranty period. But, all or a portion of your post-warranty hardware assets are maintained by an independent hardware support provider.
