Riverbed Stingray Wins 2013 Cloud Award 
Stingray Software Application Delivery Controller Recognized in Web
Services Excellence Category 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 --  Riverbed Technology
(NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced the
Riverbed(R) Stingray(TM) product family has been named a winner in
the Web Services Excellence Category of the 2012-2013 Cloud Awards
program. Stingray, a software and virtual application delivery
controller (ADC) with integrated web content optimization (WCO)
capabilities, allows IT to consolidate, scale, and move applications
easily between physical data centers, virtual environments and the
cloud. This flexibility is critical for customers with hybrid cloud
environments and provides scalability and agility that cannot be
matched by hardware ADCs. 
"Winning top honors validates our leadership position in providing a
software ADC that helps organizations with their application delivery
strategy as they shift to virtualization and cloud computing," said
Kavitha Mariappan, director of product marketing for Stingray. "ADCs
have to be cloud-aware, as dynamic as the application itself, and
able to fit into changing environments. We offer the ideal ADC
solutions to support software defined datacenters (SDDC) and
accelerate multi-tier applications quickly and cost-efficiently
across any private, public, and hybrid cloud environment." 
The Stingray product family is comprised of three products that can
be deployed as software or as a virtual edition: the Stingray Traffic
Manager which is a full-featured ADC, Stingray Aptimizer, an
industry-leading WCO platform, and Stingray Application Firewall, a
sophisticated application firewall for deeper application level
"Compiling the shortlist was difficult and trying to pick individual
winners in any category was almost impossible," said Larry Johnson,
Cloud Awards organizer. "We are extremely pleased to endorse Riverbed
as a cloud services provider which solves real-world problems for its
clients, knocking down the barriers inherent in older business models
and showing them to be outmoded -- truly leveraging cloud
technologies to be the best of the best." 
The cloud computing awards program accepts entries from organizations
of any size -- from 
enterprises to start-ups -- in the U.S. and
internationally, with an aim to celebrate excellence in the field of
cloud computing. Nearly 200 organizations entered, with entries
coming from across the globe and including Europe, the U.S., and
Middle East.
