Riverbed (News - Alert) Technology has partnered with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to deliver cloud performance and data protection solutions to enterprise customers. November 27-29 in Las Vegas, Riverbed will showcase its portfolio of cloud performance solutions at Amazon Web Services' (News - Alert) first global customer and partner conference, re:Invent.
Riverbed products available in the AWS include Cloud Steelhead WAN optimization, Whitewater cloud storage gateway, Stingray Traffic Manager, Stingray Aptimizer and Stingray Application Firewall.
The company’s Cloud Steelhead has enhanced its WAN optimization to a solution purpose-built for cloud computing environments by including cloud-intelligent features such as transparent interception and a portal-based management system.
When combined with the elasticity and subscription pricing model of AWS, organizations can easily install and scale within Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) environments.
Whitewater cloud storage gateways remove dependence on tape-based data protection systems, improve disaster recovery (DR) readiness and provide businesses with fast, drop-in access to Amazon cloud storage without changes to the existing backup infrastructure. With advanced deduplication, broad support for popular data protection applications, dual-layer security, and integration with Amazon S3, Whitewater appliances allow organizations to quickly and easily integrate cost-effective cloud storage into their data protection system.
Riverbed Stingray provides an enhanced offering allowing customers to deploy an application delivery controller (ADC (News - Alert)) solution with Web content optimization (WCO) and Web application firewall (WAF) security capabilities. These new features are an expansion of the Stingray offering that was first launched on Amazon EC2 in 2009 using Amazon's DevPay model.
In addition, Riverbed recently announced that it intends to make the Stingray Traffic Manager software available with support for Amazon VPC so that enterprise customers can deploy highly available applications either within a single availability zone or spanning a hybrid environment of availability zones and third-party data centers.
Venugopal Pai, VP at Global Alliances and Business Development, said, "The Riverbed performance solutions are addressing enterprise customer needs as they embark on public cloud deployments in Amazon EC2 and S3. Our solutions enable enterprises that have deployed applications in the public cloud to provide a consistent user experience and increase the recoverability of their data, while reducing costs of IT infrastructure."
