SANTA BARBARA, Calif., December 2, 2015 — Curvature, an IT infrastructure and services provider, has been named an Elite Partner in Arista Networks’ Channel Partner Program with a worldwide territory. Curvature is uniquely positioned to offer Arista’s complete line of software-driven cloud networking solutions backed by comprehensive service and support.

A member of Arista’s Partner Program since 2012, Curvature has helped organizations deploy high-performance, agile networking solutions for the most demanding data center and cloud computing environments. “Our Elite status with Arista enables Curvature to offer customers around the world access to cutting-edge technology and value-added services with unsurpassed quality, speed and cost savings,” said Jeff Zanardi, vice president of business development at Curvature.

To expedite delivery of Arista’s award-winning platforms, Curvature has direct access to Arista 1/10/25/40/50/100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) switches and accessories,  and can dropship to customers directly from Arista or via one of its three distribution centers located in North America, Europe and Asia. As Curvature already holds ISO 9001:2008 and TL 9000 certifications, and is a Certified C-TPAT importer, this ensures the highest standards in customer care, order fulfillment and global supply chain security.

As part of Curvature’s long-standing partnership with Arista, customers can exchange existing data center switching equipment for credit toward Arista equipment. Customers also can realize major operational and cost benefits from blending new Arista equipment with pre-owned and Curvature-branded products.

“Curvature shares Arista’s commitment to customer service, which is reinforced by their cross-platform trade-in program that speeds migration to our fully programmable, high-performance, network solutions,” said Mark Smith, senior vice president, worldwide sales operations at Arista. “We look forward to building on our history of success with Curvature to accelerate rapid market adoption and product deployment.”

Curvature’s Arista-certified engineers provide world-class support for all Arista products while the company’s Arista demonstration lab streamlines proof-of-concept testing prior to full-scale deployment. Additionally, organizations that take advantage of Curvature’s third-party maintenance offering, NetSure®, can achieve the ultimate in flexibility and cost efficiencies from hybrid network services, including 24X7 help desk, worldwide sparing depots and multi-vendor contract management.
