With new solutions from Riverbed Technology and VMware, you can cut the costs of operating IT infrastructure, improve cloud deployment and network visibility, and boost application performance for your users.
Operate software-defined data centers
Software-defined data centers (SDDC) are a leap forward in efficiency and automation, and VMware NSX virtualization platform is a cornerstone of SDDC. Riverbed SteelCentral provides visibility into NSX virtualized networks. With Riverbed, VMware admins can proactively monitor and troubleshoot virtual and physical network performance in a single solution, and better control virtual overlay network performance that results in SDDC being a reality.
Deliver virtual desktops
VDI delivers desktop security and control, but cost and distance barriers make it difficult to deliver these at your remote sties. VMware Horizon and Riverbed SteelFusion have developed a branch converge infrastructure that combines local desktop performance with fully centralized provisioning. The results? VMware admins can provision virtual desktops 30x faster and recover from branch outages 96x faster.
Manage physical desktops
