SAN FRANCISCO – November 28, 2016 – Riverbed Technology, the application performance company, will showcase a set of software-defined and application-centric solutions at AWS re:Invent 2016 in Las Vegas to help businesses capitalize on their digital transformation goals.
Due to the rise of digital and cloud strategies, digital transformation is driving disruption across all industries and is requiring businesses to rethink their approach to networking. However, IDC predicts that by 2017, 60% of digital transformation initiatives will be unable to scale due to a lack of a strategic architecture. To address these challenges, Riverbed is delivering solutions to help businesses transition from legacy hardware to a new software-defined and cloud-centric approach to networking. At the conference, attendees will learn how Riverbed delivers the tools they need to understand, simplify, optimize, protect, and orchestrate applications and data across the hybrid enterprise, and extending into the cloud with Amazon Web Services (AWS), in order to capitalize on their digital transformation initiatives.
Riverbed will showcase its application-defined SD-WAN solution, SteelConnect, which provides an intelligent and simplified approach to designing, deploying, and managing distributed networks, and provides single-click and instant provisioning into AWS environments. SteelConnect is the industry’s first and only product to unify network connectivity and orchestration of application delivery across hybrid WANs, remote LANs and cloud networks. Following a successful early access launch of SteelConnect in April, Riverbed launched SteelConnect 2.0 in September, which offers richer integration with SteelHead WAN optimization, full SteelCentral visibility, dynamic routing, and greater scale for large enterprise deployments.
SteelConnect is already gaining traction and driving results for customers globally. SimplePay, an Australian-based payment processing company, is using SteelConnect as the backbone of a software-defined infrastructure to scale its business globally, and provide one-click connectivity to AWS and the cloud. For SimplePay, SteelConnect supplies the internal connection between all of the virtual clouds SimplePay runs in AWS and provides a consistent and secure connection anywhere in the world, allowing them to deploy and connect new infrastructure anywhere within minutes.
At AWS re:Invent, Riverbed is also partnering with Verizon to announce an AWS Direct Connect Bundle, which combines Riverbed’s industry-leading SteelHeadÔ WAN optimization solution, Verizon’s Secure Cloud Interconnect and Virtual Network Services solutions, and AWS’ Direct Connect solution into a single offering to support hybrid cloud environments. With this solution, enterprise customers can connect their branch offices and data centers to AWS environments through managed, secure and optimized network services. Learn more.
