When AlertBoot, a leading provider of full disk encryption, made the switch to the cloud, it needed to find a load balancing solution that could not only support its migration but also prevent as much downtime as possible.
AlertBoot conducts its entire business online, so when it decided to make the move to the cloud, it was important that its services would be maintained throughout the transition time. After working with three other hardware-based load balancing products, AlertBoot chose the Riverbed® SteelApp™ Traffic Manager to help it successfully transition its infrastructure to an entirely virtualized environment, at one-third the cost of other comparable hardware solutions.
After going virtual, AlertBoot saw immense benefits for its own company in terms of cost and flexibility. Leaving the expensive, high-maintenance hardware behind, AlertBoot’s implementation of Riverbed Stingray was a cost-effective, glitch-free, and maximally portable solution.
“Riverbed was the perfect solution because they do everything, if not more, than a hardware-based load balancer at a third of the price, right out of the box”, said Tim Maliyil, CEO of AlertBoot.
