“The Steelhead product family is already the most complete WAN optimization solution in the market, and with this announcement we added another important and business-critical use case,” said Paul O’Farrell, senior vice president and general manager, Steelhead Products Group, Riverbed. “The new Steelhead DX Edition eliminates distance between datacenters as a barrier to achieving true location-independent computing, which in this case means that data can be moved, stored and backed-up regardless of where facilities are located, but with performance similar to a local area network. Only Riverbed offers a complete solution for both large-scale branch-to-datacenter and datacenter-to-datacenter environments.”
Taking the Network Out of the Business Continuity Equation
“Maintaining fast and predictable WAN performance into and between datacenters has become critical for many of today’s enterprises,” said Brad Casemore, Research Director at IDC. “Protecting data within and across multiple datacenters is essential to keeping a business online and operational. The challenge is doing so without generating ever increasing operational cost and risk, even as data sets and replication workloads continue to increase.”
The Steelhead DX Edition 8000 Series features software and hardware purpose-built and optimized for datacenter-to-datacenter workloads. Supporting up to 2 Gbps of optimized WAN capacity and up to 10 Gbps of optimized LAN capacity while optimizing up to 10,000 TCP and UDP application flows, Steelhead DX Edition 8000 Series delivers superior value for accelerating data transfers over long distance. In addition, the solution provides unique optimizations for data replication applications such as NetApp® SnapMirror® and EMC® Symmetrix® Remote Data Facility (SRDF®), providing advanced performance, enhanced visibility and fine-grain control of data replication processes end-to-end across the WAN.
