Riverstone Provides Brocade Third Party Network Support

Riverstone Provides Brocade Third Party Network Support

Brocade Communications Systems has specialized in providing data and storage networking products since 1997. To this day, data centers around the world utilize Brocade networking solutions for their industry-leading capabilities in storage, ethernet, and converged networking environments. But in an industry that prioritizes innovation and bringing new technology to market, why continue to turn to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) like Brocade for hardware maintenance? Well, maybe you shouldn’t be. 

Third party support providers on the other hand specialize in providing high-quality, responsive support, maintenance, and warranty solutions for all your Brocade systems. Brocade third party network support from Riverstone Technology allows you to save money on your budget and keep your Brocade device functioning for years after passing the original warranty expiration. At Riverstone, we work with you to understand the problems at hand, determine the best equipment to resolve the issue, and provide personalized third party maintenance all at an affordable rate. Here are some reasons to consider Brocade third party network support from Riverstone Technology:

A Great Time to Switch

While many Brocade devices are a few years past their End of Service Life (EOSL) dates, that doesn’t necessarily mean they need to be put out of commission. Brocade third party network support can keep your devices viable for years after becoming post-warranty or even EOSL. Recall that EOSL signifies the end of any active support or software updates from Brocade, and that renewing your warranty will no longer be an option. Faced with pressure from the manufacturer, you may feel required to upgrade to Brocade’s latest device to uphold the stability of your data center. However, it doesn’t make fiscal sense to ditch a device that’s still successful. Riverstone is highly experienced in extending the life of our clients’ current, EOL, and EOSL systems at a much lower cost than Brocade. Remember, not all Brocade products have been put out of service just yet. The best way to safely extend the useful life of your equipment is to be proactive and explore Riverstone’s free EOSL database for your Brocade model today!

Better On Your Budget

Riverstone third party maintenance is the ideal solution for any company looking to save big on their IT budget. With third party network support from Riverstone Technology, clients can save up to 80% on support and hardware in comparison with Brocade. What’s more, a qualified TPM option to prolong existing equipment could be invaluable in helping postpone an expensive infrastructure replacement until your data center has gotten the most out of your existing networking hardware. As Brocade support costs continue to inflate each year, consider Riverstone for affordable extended support solutions that are better on your budget!

The Riverstone Experience

While savings are inevitably a primary concern to your business, there are plenty of other reasons to choose Riverstone Technology for Brocade third party network support. Here are some other benefits we offer to companies like yours:

  • Flexibility 

Perhaps the greatest benefit our team can offer clients is added flexibility. Your data center is complex, and there’s no one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to support. That’s why we have a range of service level packages to choose from. These four Service Level Agreement (SLA) tiers are easily customizable to align with the shifting support needs of your data center equipment. From 24×7 monitoring with a 4 hour response window, to simply providing parts as needed, our third party maintenance plans ensure you only pay for the features you need and not the ones you don’t!

  • Global Reach

Our network of global partnerships enables us to have certified, expert level engineers on site to service your data center no matter the location worldwide. While manufacturers are swamped with service requests, TPM providers have local engineers on hand to quickly respond when an emergency arises. Another advantage to our global reach is the speed with which we can deliver replacement parts; rather than waiting on hardware to be shipped across the globe from Brocade, we can ensure our clients receive equipment rapidly from a provider nearest to them.

  • Riverstone Recertified Hardware

Riverstone Recertified” guarantees that our refurbished hardware has been reset to the original factory specifications, and then tested in a lab to verify the equipment meets both the OEM’s and Riverstone’s hardware standards. Plus, there’s little risk in making the switch to third party. Riverstone offers one of the best warranties you can find in the industry with our automatic 1 year Next Business Day Warranty included on all hardware sales. “Pre-owned” doesn’t have to imply “junk” when buying through a qualified third party vendor. Buy with confidence and consider Riverstone Technology for dependable Brocade hardware that helps you save big on your budget.

  • Experienced and Thorough

At Riverstone, experience is our calling card. We only work with certified engineers, because the last thing your company needs is to have problems handled incompetently. The multiplatform training our engineers receive allows them to walk into any data center environment and analyze complex, cross-vendor IT challenges.
