Jenne, Inc. Selected by Extreme Networks to Expand North American Distributorship for Full Line of High Performance Networking Solutions

Jenne, Inc. today announced that it has expanded its strategic relationship with Extreme Networks as a leading distributor in North America following an extensive Request for Information (RFI) process. The RFI process was conducted with a number of distributors associated with Extreme Networks as well as those associated with Enterasys Networks, as a result of the acquisition of Enterasys Networks by Extreme Networks in the fall of 2013.

In addition to Extreme Networks’ solutions in Ethernet switching, software and security, which Jenne has distributed since 2008, Jenne is now distributing switches, wireless LAN access points, and wireless appliances formerly under the Enterasys brand. Additionally, Jenne is distributing the recently introduced Purview™, an industry-first, network-powered application analytics and optimization solution that captures network data and aggregates, analyzes, correlates and reports on it to enable better decision making and improved business performance. Purview was operated during Super Bowl XLVIII to deliver the industry’s first comprehensive in-stadium model of mobile application usage.

“Jenne has demonstrated the commitment and business excellence that we greatly value in a value-added distributor and our strategic relationship with them is key to our channel program,” said Theresa Caragol, vice president of global channels for Extreme Networks. “Jenne’s commitment to providing exceptional product delivery, training and support is essential for our complete line of enterprise network solutions.”

“Jenne values its relationship with Extreme Networks, its reseller partners and the associated technology solutions partners in the Extreme ecosystem,” said Vince Piccolomini, vice president of business development. “Jenne has built its reputation as a value-added distributor dedicated to the success of our partners, which includes both the manufacturers for which we distribute their products and the resellers we serve. We look forward to building new relationships with resellers who have done business with Enterasys in the past by offering them outstanding services as well as our commitment to helping them win deals and grow their businesses with the new Extreme Networks.”

Jenne has been recognized by Extreme Networks for the past three years in a row with awards, including:

  • Top Distributor Growth Award 2013
  • North American Distributor of the Year Award 2012
  • Top Distributor Growth Award 2011

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous ar...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time. Now that design CAD teams are geographically distributed, centralizing their work is key. With large multi-gigabyte projects, outdated tools have stifled industrial team agility, time-to-market milestones, and impacted P&L stakeholders.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
