Riverbed Expands Its Application Delivery Controller Offering on
Amazon Web Services Marketplace 
Stingray Traffic Manager With Integrated Web Content Optimization and
Web Application Firewall Capabilities Provides High-Performance and
Reliability for Applications Hosted on Amazon Web Services 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 --  Riverbed Technology
(NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced that its
Stingray(TM) product family is available through the Amazon Web
Services (AWS) Marketplace. This enhanced offering allows customers
to deploy an application delivery controller (ADC) solution with Web
Content Optimization (WCO) and Web Application Firewall (WAF)
security capabilities. These new features are an expansion of the
Stingray offering that was first launched on Amazon Elastic Compute
Cloud (EC2) in 2009 using Amazon's DevPay model.  
In addition, Riverbed(R) today announced that it intends to make
available the Stingray Traffic Manager software with support for
Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) so that enterprise customers can
deploy highly available applications either within a single
availability zone or spanning a hybrid environment of availability
zones and third-party data centers. 
Stingray Traffic Manager software is a leading application delivery
controller (ADC) for applications running on Amazon Web Services,
helping developers build applications that can scale to much higher
transaction rates, with greater resilience and flexibility. Stingray
Traffic Manager software is available through AWS Marketplace in a
combination of options, including the Stingray Aptimizer's
industry-leading WCO technology, and Stingray Application Firewall's
application-aware web application firewall for deep application
security: 


 
--  Stingray Traffic Manager scales cloud applications by offloading SSL
    and connection management, enhances availability with global load
    balancing across availability zones, and supports DevOps initiatives
    with built-in TrafficScript for rapid application development;
--  Stingray Aptimizer helps developers by automating the process of
    content optimization and acceleration, reducing the need to hand-tune
    every web page;
--  Stingray Application Firewall provides an additional layer of Layer 7
    protection to help protect against external threats such as SQL
    injection, cross-site scripting and other external threats.

  
"By running the Riverbed ADC solution in Amazon's cloud environment, we
have experienced instant performance improvements, resulting in
faster performing web applications. The intelligent web traffic
management software routes requests to different pools and the
back-up and restore features give us the confidence that we can deal
with any eventuality," said Simon McLean, Managing Director of Click
Travel, an online business travel provider.  
Large-scale applications require a high-performance, scalable
solution for SSL and compression, global load balancing, automatic
WCO, and in-depth protection against external threats. Stingray
Traffic Manager is designed to address these requirements by
integrating seamlessly with applications deployed on AWS to provide
load balancing, user experience optimization, application
scalability, and fine-grained application control. Providing advanced
traffic management features that are not available with traditional
load balancers, Stingray becomes a key component of an organization's
application infrastructure. Pricing is flexible, giving more
deployment options for capacity reservation and cost models,
including Amazon reserved instances and spot pricing. 
"The newest generation of online applications for retail, gaming, and
digital media need the ability to scale up rapidly to meet customer
demand and be able to roll out new features on a daily or weekly
basis," said Apurva Dave, vice president of products and marketing,
Stingray business unit at Riverbed. "Maintaining this level of
sustained service enhancement means that developers need to maximize
productivity and accelerate release cycles. Stingray software
unleashes application performance in the Amazon Cloud and allows
developers to focus on building new features and services." 
The Stingray Traffic Manager software with support for Amazon Virtual
Private Cloud (VPC) is expected to be generally available in Q4 2012.
