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.
’We are pleased that Riverbed SteelApp, SteelCentral and SteelHead have joined the vCloud Air ISV Program and have achieved VMware Ready- vCloud Air certification. Riverbed is one of the first partners to complete certification and achieve this status.“
– Sanjay Katyal, VP of Global Alliances & OEMs, VMware
Run hybrid cloud services
Architecting a mix of private and public cloud enables IT to be agile enough to keep pace with the business. Riverbed SteelHead and SteelCentral Services Controllers are now certified to run on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service. This ensures VMware teams can overcome security, scalability, and performance challenges – resulting in the best user experience in the hybrid enterprise.
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
Not pursuing a VDI architecture but still struggling with managing branch desktops? No problem. Riverbed SteelHead accelerates VMware Horizon Mirage. SteelHead, available as a virtual appliance in any VMware environment, leverages a superior data reduction algorithm and transport layer optimization to provide a foundation for acceleration of Mirage traffic, resulting in 4x faster upgrades from Windows XP to Windows 7, 4x faster backups, and up to 98% reduction in Mirage bandwidth utilization.
