SAN FRANCISCO -- August 27, 2014

Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ:RVBD), a leader in application performance
infrastructure, today announced a cloud-based version of Riverbed^®
SteelStore^TM for Amazon Web Services (AWS) − the first enterprise-class,
cloud data backup and recovery solution that protects workloads running in AWS
by cost effectively and securely backing them up in secondary cloud locations.
SteelStore for AWS is now available in the AWS Marketplace.

As data continues to grow and the costs of backing it up with customary
methods consume more time and budget, traditional disaster recovery strategies
are no longer cost-effective or realistic. Cloud storage provides a better
approach for storing the ever-increasing amounts of data that companies now
manage due either to business needs or regulation. SteelStore for AWS allows
companies that already use AWS for cloud-based storage to also recover those
workloads from secondary cloud locations, reducing time, cost and data volumes
by up to 90%. SteelStore also helps companies efficiently protect cloud-based
workloads, creating cloud-to-cloud storage resiliency for enterprises.

“As the AWS Cloud continues to grow, offering backup and recovery strategies
through partners like Riverbed creates a stronger ecosystem for customers
looking to take advantage of the agility and cost-saving you find with the
cloud,” said Terry Hanold, Vice President, Cloud Commerce, Amazon Web
Services, Inc. “Providing data backup and recovery solutions on AWS
marketplace is essential and we are excited to have Riverbed offer SteelStore
for AWS.”

“Cloud-to-cloud resiliency will transform backup and recovery so companies
have a more reliable, cost-effective and seamless way to ensure their data is
protected in the hybrid enterprise era,” said John Martin, Senior Vice
President and General Manager, Storage Delivery at Riverbed. “SteelStore for
AWS is helping to make next generation storage more secure for customers
taking advantage of the AWS cloud.”

Recover On-Premises Workloads in the Cloud

SteelStore for AWS allows organizations without a secondary disaster recovery
location or organizations looking for extra protection to utilize the cloud
for disaster recovery and business continuity. By using SteelStore physical or
virtual appliances on-premises, data is seamlessly and securely protected in
the cloud. If the primary site is unavailable, organizations can quickly spin
up SteelStore and recover data to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2).

Efficiently Protect Cloud-Based Workloads

With data resiliency becoming increasingly challenging in the hybrid
enterprise, protecting workloads in the cloud is just as critical as when they
are run on-premises. When organizations already have production workloads
running in Amazon EC2, SteelStore for AWS offers an efficient and secure
approach to backing up cloud-hosted workloads by working with existing backup
software. SteelStore for AWS deduplicates, encrypts, and rapidly migrates data
to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) or Amazon Glacier, creating
cloud-to-cloud resiliency, which is the next level in business continuity.
