Ecosystem of Partners Enables Resellers, System Integrators and Cloud Partners to Harness the Power of Kubernetes and Cloud-Native on Behalf of Customers
SAN JOSE, Calif. – January 26, 2021 – Robin.io, the 5G and application automation platform company, today announced the formal launch of the Robin.io Partner Program, recognizing the crucial role partners play in helping customers deploy, maintain and optimize Robin technologies. More than 20 leading organizations have already joined as Robin.io partners, including enterprise and telecommunication software companies, systems integrators, resellers, cloud providers and other infrastructure technology suppliers.
The Robin.io core technologies—Robin Cloud Native Platform (CNP), Robin Cloud Native Storage (CNS) and Multi Cluster Automation Platform (MDCAP)—automate cloud-native service delivery and management for 5G and enterprise applications on Kubernetes, allowing companies to deliver their applications and network functions “as a service.” For enterprises, Robin.io technologies are ideal for data- and network-centric application pipelines like big data analytics, databases and message queues, enabling a self-service, app-store like experience with deployment in minutes, not weeks. To meet the needs of mobile network operators (MNOs) deploying next-gen 5G networks, the Robin.io solution removes complexity, accelerates deployment times and significantly reduces OpEx and CapEx costs.
