"Customers running SAP solutions who are moving to virtual and
cloud-based infrastructures will benefit by deploying Stingray
Traffic Manager. This will help improve the performance, security,
and resilience of enterprise applications," said Jeff Pancottine,
senior vice president and general manager of the Stingray application
delivery business unit at Riverbed. "With SAP's rigorous testing of
our products, these enterprises can now be assured that our products
integrate with SAP NetWeaver and will help them achieve improved
performance of business-critical applications." 
In these tests, SAP used Stingray Traffic Manager installed as a
virtual appliance with the SAP NetWeaver technology platform and
simulated normal end-user conditions to determine that the two can
interoperate successfully, to meet the strict test criteria set by
SAP. 
In each scenario, the Stingray software was certified to meet SAP
requirements for application functionality, performance, and
security. In addition, Stingray was shown to provide additional
enhancements for application availability, resilience, and
encryption, while helping reduce the workload of SAP application
servers. 
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, sluggish 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.
