Unified management and performance across cloud networks
Leveraging the AWS Cloud can increase IT agility and reduce operational expenditures. But, your ability to get the most out of these benefits is often dependent on your networking capabilities. Riverbed, a proven leader in the WAN market, provides a software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) solution that extends agility and performance to your network and helps securely and efficiently connect users to the AWS resources they need.
Riverbed SteelConnect comes with an intuitive, centralized management console, which accelerates the pace of network management and shifts organizational focus to innovation.
Benefits of Riverbed SteelConnect + AWS:
Performance: Riverbed SteelConnect delivers high performance – even if network conditions change – for any application (encrypted or conventional, on-premises or cloud-based) to any user (mobile or static).
Agility: Simple workflows with intelligent automation reduce IT turnaround time. Setting up a cloud instance takes minutes in AWS and establishing a secure, high-performance mesh network takes another few minutes with Riverbed.
Efficiency: The ability to seamlessly leverage hybrid WANs to connect the user to the cloud improves network efficiency. Simple management increases overall IT efficiency.
