SAN FRANCISCO – April 28, 2016 – Riverbed Technology, the application performance company, will showcase Riverbed® SteelFusion™ at the EMC World 2016 conference to demonstrate to attendees an alternate, simple and cost-effective approach to edge IT. SteelFusion is a unique software-defined edge solution that enables IT staff to centrally host and manage remote site infrastructure (e.g., servers, storage, applications) and operations (e.g., provisioning, backup, recovery) and secure critical data in the data center and/or the cloud without deploying skilled IT staff onsite at remote and branch offices (ROBO).
SteelFusion simultaneously meets the top requirements of businesses, IT organizations and employees by reducing the operational cost of managing remote locations, increasing data security, improving business continuity and IT agility with 100x faster recovery times and 30x faster deployment of branch services and sites, and providing up to a 100x increase in application performance at the branch for greater productivity.
Riverbed will also provide a demonstration of its just announced next-generation application defined SD-WAN solution, SteelConnect for the first time during the show, which offers a radically new approach to networking in a cloud-centric world. SteelConnect is uniquely designed to enable business-intent policies for applications to provide the performance and agility enterprises need today.
