Teneo launches WAN Optimization as a Service to simplify ‘next stage’ application and network performance delivery

September 27, 2017

New ‘as a Service’ offering takes WAN Optimization monitoring and implementation burden off CIOs and network managers.

Theale, UK and Dulles, VA, USA – September 27, 2017Teneo, the Work From Anywhere IT services company, has launched its WAN Optimisation as a Service offering. This will help enterprises and IT organizations to simplify the adoption of the latest WAN Optimization technologies as well as save time and money on their management.

As today’s companies demand better application performance at individual branches and for mobile workforces, the continual evolution of WAN Optimization technologies is leading to growing challenges for CIOs and network managers, such as catering for the optimization of cloud-based applications, or understanding the extent of software refreshes and ongoing management costs across their global networks.

This rapid and continual evolution is forcing senior IT executives and network managers to deal with increasing volumes of applications and data while struggling to manage scarce in-house resources to deploy and run their new WAN Optimization tools.

Teneo’s WAN Optimization as a Service, based on award-winning Riverbed SteelHead WAN Optimization technology, addresses these fast-changing market needs with tailored, 24/7 as-a-service options. This level of service customization and scalability ensures that relevant engineers, appropriate skills and resource are delivered to manage application performance around the clock. Enterprise customers in effect “buy the outcomes” that they need for their latest stage WAN Optimization program.

Teneo’s new WAN Optimization as a Service offering gives enterprise CIOs and network managers more flexible service support while helping them get to grips with the sheer range of hardware and software choices involved in ‘next stage’ WAN Optimization deployments. Using outdated ‘first-generation’ WAN Optimization technology can lead to network managers suddenly facing high ‘up-front’ equipment and software refresh costs and unpredictable in-house resource costs for ongoing management.

Teneo’s new WAN Optimization as a Service has a monthly recurring cost for predictable budgeting while the initial equipment deployment stage is covered with a simple, non-recurring cost.

With the required technology specified by Teneo to the customer’s exact needs, the service can scale easily as these change; as a result, customers can upgrade from their current capabilities to the next software level when they are ready and then continue to pay on a planned monthly schedule.

Marc Sollars, CTO at Teneo, explains: “Many enterprises are approaching their WAN Optimization refresh and having to re-justify their investment in the technology. Network teams often find that they weren’t running the latest version of software or hadn’t configured the infrastructure to cater for their new, most critical applications. They’re missing many of the benefits that today’s advanced WAN Optimization tools provide.

“With our WAN Optimization as a Service, we take away CIOs’ concerns over how to implement or fund their next-stage WAN Optimization and give them their desired end result of optimum application performance for their organization’s exact needs – delivered at a lower total cost of ownership.”
