SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 24, 2012) - Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced its participation at Storage Decisions New York 2012, taking place September 24-25, 2012 at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn, NY. At the conference, Riverbed® (booth #15) will demonstrate its solutions for consolidating data, accelerating disaster recovery, and moving backups to the cloud. These demonstrations will include showcases on Granite™ edge virtual server infrastructure (edge-VSI), the Steelhead® appliance, and the Whitewater® cloud storage gateway appliance. Additionally, Jerome Noll, marketing director at Riverbed, will deliver a presentation highlighting how storage practitioners can modernize their storage and data protection architecture.
Organizations worldwide are using Riverbed's broad suite of performance solutions that span wide area network (WAN) optimization, edge-VSI, application-aware network performance management (NPM), application delivery, web content optimization (WCO), and cloud data protection for backup and disaster recovery (DR). To overcome performance challenges associated with DR and business continuity, many organizations are deploying Steelhead products to accelerate DR making the process more efficient and reliable, as well as Whitewater cloud storage gateway appliances to enhance data protection, thereby improving their recovery time (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO).
To support customers that are restructuring their IT architecture to achieve complete consolidation, Riverbed introduced Granite. Edge-VSI, enabled by the Riverbed Granite appliance, allows organizations to consolidate and manage all edge servers in the data center. Edge-VSI extends centrally managed data to distributed end users, enabling IT to fully consolidate branch servers, applications, and storage to the data center, yet deliver services to the edge as if they were local. Riverbed will be showcasing Granite in its booth at Storage Decisions.
- In a session titled "Modernize Your Storage and Data Protection Architecture for Fast ROI," Mr. Noll will discuss how Riverbed enables organizations to virtualize and consolidate storage from distributed or remote locations to the data center. Organizations can modernize data protection by leveraging the cloud as a secure, low-cost storage tier with a portfolio of industry leading data protection and cloud storage solutions. Attendees will learn how to streamline IT operations, improve productivity, modernize data protection, and secure a fast return on investment. This session will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 25, 12:25-12:35 PM in Breakout Rooms #2 Salon H &I.
- On Sept. 10, Riverbed announced the availability of a new Whitewater Operating System (WWOS), version 2.0 and a new enterprise grade Whitewater cloud storage gateway 3010 model appliance. The new WWOS enables organizations to achieve higher scalability while providing simplified administration and the Whitewater 3010 model appliance offers the ability to handle larger backup data workloads, with four times the local storage capacity of previous models to address larger scale enterprise requirements.
"Granite edge virtual server infrastructure decouples storage from compute, allowing data to be completely consolidated in the data center yet presented to end-users and applications at the edge as if it were local. As a result, enterprises deliver uncompromised performance to workers in branch offices while IT organizations centrally manage, backup, provision, patch, expand, and protect data from the data center."
- Miles Kelly, senior director, product marketing, Steelhead and Granite appliances at Riverbed
