Exinda Appoints Bytes as Reseller

Exinda, a global provider of WAN optimisation and application performance management solutions based on Unified Performance Management (UPM), has appointed Bytes Systems Integration as a national reseller.

“Exinda is growing at over 90% per annum globally due to its unique UPM solution that encompasses application visibility, control, optimisation and intelligent acceleration within a single network appliance,” says Alan Rehbock, sales director, Exinda South Africa. “Since launching an office in South Africa, we have experienced enormous interest in our solutions and have therefore appointed one of the most respected IT integrators in South Africa to sell and support Exinda in the region.

“When looking at prospective partners, Bytes Systems Integration demonstrated significant experience and competencies in the wide-area network (WAN) optimisation space, making it an obvious choice.”

Says Patrick Hastings, divisional MD, Advanced Technology Services for Bytes Systems Integration, “We tend to be very selective in the number of vendor partners appointed to service our region, but Exinda was an easy choice. Exinda presents an extraordinary value proposition that directly addresses application performance issues across the WAN.

“In addition, Exinda’s unique UPM value proposition is compelling and presents an ideal opportunity to cater for the requirements of some clients that are not addressed with the technologies we currently represent.”

A senior member of the Bytes’ technical team attended the first Deep-Dive technical train-the-trainer session held by Exinda in Johannesburg during November and passed the rigorous test with flying colours. The company will now ensure this technical expertise is transferred to other Bytes’ specialists dealing with WAN optimisation issues in a variety of vertical market segments.

He adds that Exinda excels in a competitive market because of its speed, simplicity, scalability, its superior performance and fast return on investment (ROI). “Additionally, key differentiators for Exinda include in-depth network visibility, quality of service (QoS) assurance and intelligent acceleration.”

Moreover, Exinda’s Global Partner Programme works to the benefit of the reseller as it provides for additional benefits in the form of deal registration bonuses, margin accelerators, special performance incentive discounts and rebates.

“Bytes Systems Integration has posted a growth rate of 60% this year and plans to grow even faster next year,” adds Rehbock. “It has a sterling reputation among its clients and hence is a partner of choice for Exinda.”
