SAN FRANCISCO—June 05, 2013— Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the application performance company, today announced it has achieved Oracle Validated Integration of its Riverbed® Stingray® Traffic Manager 9.1 with the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1. Stingray Traffic Manager is a software application delivery controller (ADC), which helps enterprises and cloud operators create, manage, and deliver key services faster and at a lower cost. Integrated with the Oracle E-Business Suite, Stingray Traffic Manager will help enterprises control and optimize end user services by inspecting, transforming, prioritizing, and routing application traffic.
Riverbed is a Gold level member of Oracle® PartnerNetwork (OPN). To achieve Oracle Validated Integration, Oracle partners are required to meet a stringent set of requirements that are based on the needs and priorities of customers. With Stingray Traffic Manager and the Oracle E-Business Suite, customers now have access to a low cost and flexible ADC that allows them to:
- Scale the Oracle E-Business Suite by load balancing the application servers
- Monitor the health of the Oracle E-Business Suite servers and raise alerts and routes around failed nodes when an error is detected
- Improve performance by offloading the SSL traffic from the Oracle E-Business Suite servers
"Stingray Traffic Manager gives Oracle E-Business Suite customers access to a low cost and flexible ADC," said Jeff Pancottine, senior vice president and general manager of the Stingray application delivery business unit. "Other application delivery providers offer either hardware load balancers or limited virtual machine versions. Stingray is designed from the ground up to be deployed as software, so it is better suited to development, operations, and cloud needs."
"Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process," said Kevin O'Brien, senior director, ISV and SaaS Strategy, Oracle. "Achieving Oracle Validated Integration through Oracle PartnerNetwork gives our customers confidence that the integration between Stingray Traffic Manager 9.1 and the Oracle E-Business Suite 12.1 has been validated and that the products work together as designed. This helps reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience for our joint customers."
