Business-critical applications are at the heart of your organization. Enterprises are migrating to the cloud every day and need their apps to perform optimally regardless of their deployment. The industry’s #1 WAN optimization solution, Riverbed SteelHead, available on Microsoft Azure, ensures that your apps perform at their best no matter where they sit. When integrated into your hybrid environment, SteelHead keeps the ideas flowing, assembly lines moving and revenue growing 24/7.
SaaS applications, like Microsoft Office 365, can also be constrained by network latency and limited bandwidth when services and applications are delivered to users around the world, typically over the public Internet. Riverbed’s capabilities and benefits span across both the private WAN and the Internet. SteelHead SaaS offers secure optimization of SaaS applications for a global workforce – accommodating user, client and application mobility.
Adopting the cloud can mean a loss of control and uncertainty. Building new apps of migrating existing ones can have unpredictable outcomes. With AppInternals bundled in, IT gets the end-to-end visibility that they need, into their cloud servers to improve performance and user experience. The cloud is no longer a black hole.
AppInternals monitors applications in the cloud, on-premise or in a combination of both, and presents performance insights and analytics on a single interactive view. It helps existing, on-premises Microsoft customers retain the control and visibility they enjoy on-premises, within Azure. Users can inspect user experience, trace transactions, measure system resources and perform analytics to expose, diagnose and fix bottlenecks.
In a hybrid enterprise environment, flexibility is the name of the game. SteelFusion by Riverbed provides unparalleled flexibility by integrating with StorSimple through Microsoft Azure, giving you the agility to store (and share) your data wherever it makes the most business sense. Whether you want to augment your on-prem data center with cloud, seamlessly move data from DC to cloud, or project public cloud storage from DC to branches, you have the redundancy, availability and security to truly virtualize your operations, data and apps in remote locations.
SteelFusion seamlessly weaves together computing, storage, virtualization and WAN optimization in one simple appliance. Consolidate remote IT, project VMs and data to any satellite branch, deploy (and recover) branches in a flash and eliminate the need for branch backups and multiple datacenters. SteelFusion truly represents “Zero Branch IT.”
