Riverbed Accelerates the Globally Connected Enterprise
Complete Portfolio of IT Performance Solutions Delivers Anytime, Anywhere IT Performance
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, Nov 10, 2010 –(MARKETWIRE via COMTEX)– Riverbed Technology, the IT performance company, today introduced new solutions for both applications and storage in public cloud environments that build on its success in enabling organizations large and small to build private clouds. These new offerings, in combination with Riverbed’s existing award-winning wide area network (WAN) optimization and visibility solutions, will help IT organizations deliver to globally connected enterprises anytime, anywhere IT performance — without requiring changes to their existing infrastructure.
At a publicly Webcast cloud launch event in New York City and at live events in the San Francisco Bay Area and London, Riverbed(R) today is demonstrating the benefits of its two new solutions, Riverbed Cloud Steelhead(TM) and Riverbed Whitewater(TM). Participating in the worldwide launch with Riverbed are cloud providers Amazon, AT&T, BT, EMC(R), Nirvanix and Orange Business Services. In addition, Riverbed customers AVST, International Justice Mission, Pump Solutions Group and Razorfish are presenting on their real-world experiences using the new solutions in public cloud environments.

To embrace globalization and empower employees in remote offices, IT departments have traditionally deployed rich resources at the enterprise edge. To overcome the complexity of this model, many global enterprises have consolidated their IT resources into private clouds. However, as data moves farther from users at the edge, distance slows performance. Global enterprises have deployed WAN optimization and visibility solutions to help overcome this issue. Today, more than 8,700 enterprises worldwide depend on Riverbed to understand, optimize and consolidate their IT infrastructure.
As organizations begin to incorporate public cloud into their IT strategies, they find that the same performance issues that impact private clouds and IT consolidation projects challenge them in public cloud environments.
“IT organizations at globally connected enterprises are charged with delivering highly efficient and secure IT, while still providing a rich experience to end users at the edge,” said Eric Wolford, senior vice president of marketing and business development at Riverbed. “Private and public clouds offer the promise of efficiency and flexibility, but come with performance barriers caused by the distance between users and their data. Riverbed helps deliver flexible, accelerated performance without requiring IT organizations to make changes to their current architecture. And, as new vendors and approaches are adopted, Riverbed will be there to deliver the performance that enterprises require in simple, easy to deploy and manage solutions.”
Unleashing the Power of Applications in the Cloud
Cloud Steelhead v1.0 will initially integrate with Amazon EC2 and Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). To ensure seamless cloud integration, Cloud Steelhead instances will offer the “Steelhead(R) Discovery Agent” that offers a new form of transparent cloud interception, which ensures that WAN optimization can be used in highly automated, virtualized environments where the physical location of the customer’s server might change at any time; a subscription-based pricing model that enables cloud-like economics for WAN optimization; a “Riverbed Cloud Portal” for simple, portal-based management; and easy cloning, which will allow administrators to use their existing Cloud Steelhead settings and configurations to bring new Cloud Steelhead instances online quickly and easily.
Unleashing the Power of Cloud Storage
Introduced today, the new Riverbed Whitewater appliance, a cloud storage accelerator targeting backup and select archive workloads, provides a simple, efficient way to offsite data to cloud storage environments powered by EMC(R) Atmos(R), AT&T Synaptic Storage as a Service(SM), and Amazon S3.
