SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 04/01/13 --  Riverbed Technology
(NASDAQ: RVBD), the application performance company, today announced
its participation at Storage Networking World's Spring 2013
Conference, taking place April 2-4 at Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando,
Florida. At the conference, Riverbed(R) (booth #314) will highlight
Granite(R), its storage delivery solution, which allows IT management
to pull storage from remote and branch offices and manage it in the
data center, with its lower cost, reduced risk, improved security and
reliable controls -- while still giving employees the access they
require. With Granite, IT leaders get the benefits of complete
consolidation: data center-based management, instant provisioning,
and instant restore.  
In addition to demonstrating Granite, Riverbed will showcase
Steelhead(R), its wide area network (WAN) optimization solutions and
Whitewater(R), its cloud storage appliance for accelerating
consolidated applications, disaster recovery (DR), and cloud backups.
To show the benefits of Granite and Steelhead in real-world
deployments, a Riverbed spokesperson will share how its global
customers have taken advantage of these solutions to move branch and
remote office storage and servers to the secure data center, and
build a resilient, agile architecture that they can more cost
effectively manage. 
News Highlights: 

--  Chris Pinckney, director of Global Customer Programs at Riverbed, will
    present "Keys to Infrastructure Consolidation and Improved End-User
    Performance" on Tuesday, April 2nd from 4:10 p.m. - 4:50 p.m. during
    the Data Center Networking Track. During the presentation, Pinckney
    will elaborate on how to completely consolidate branch servers and
    storage to the data center to lower cost, reduce risk, improve
    security and reliable controls -- while ensuring that remote workers
    get the performance and access they require. The presentation will
    provide examples of organizations around the globe that have
    implemented this disruptive architectural approach for edge IT
    management that takes full advantage of data center best practices,
    while enabling new capabilities such as instant provisioning and
    restore of remote sites.
--  In its booth, Riverbed will showcase its Granite solution, which has
    been recognized by InfoWorld as Technology of the Year. Granite gives
    organizations a groundbreaking storage delivery solution with the
    unique capability to 'vacuum up' servers and storage from branch and
    remote offices so they can be centrally controlled in the data center.
    By leveraging the Granite solution, organizations have the ability to
    not only completely consolidate servers and storage but also get rid
    of remote backup and improve data security by putting data in secure
    locations to remove risk.
--  The company will also demonstrate its Steelhead WAN optimization
    appliance that enables enterprises to more cost-effectively manage
    large-scale data center-to-data center replication, accelerate
    applications among many locations and users in an enterprise, and
    build large private cloud infrastructures.
--  Leveraging industry-leading technologies to deliver local-like
    performance while using private or public clouds for secure off-site
    storage, Riverbed Whitewater appliances help enterprises save money
    with low cost cloud storage and are purpose built for data protection,
    eliminating tape, and improving disaster recovery readiness. The
    Whitewater cloud storage appliance, which will be demonstrated at the
    Riverbed booth, supports the industry's most popular data protection
    applications as well as the leading cloud service provider application
    programming interfaces (APIs).

More than 22,000 organizations worldwide depend on Riverbed to
understand, optimize and consolidate their IT infrastructure, through
solutions that overcome performance issues caused by distance,
distributed computing, and ever increasing amounts of data. As IT
organizations embark on strategic initiatives to virtualize,
consolidate and migrate workloads into cloud environments, users are
moved farther from their data. Slow applications, slow file transfers
and inefficient websites can negatively impact the performance and
success of these initiatives. Riverbed transforms IT performance by
providing solutions spanning WAN optimization, storage delivery,
application-aware network performance management, application
performance management, application delivery controllers, web content
optimization (WCO), and cloud data protection. By providing the
broadest portfolio of performance solutions that deliver anywhere,
any-application optimization, Riverbed enables organizations to
increase productivity and efficiency, while enhancing business
resilience and controlling costs.
