Riverbed Technology, Inc. Key Developments

Riverbed Technology Announces the Latest Release of Riverbed SteelCentral

Riverbed Technology announced the latest release of Riverbed SteelCentral, which addresses the end-to-end performance management needs of enterprises. Companies are still suffering from a fragmented approach to performance monitoring using stand-alone tools that do not provide a full view of performance. With this SteelCentral release, Riverbed continues to expand, integrate and simplify application performance management, providing the broadest and most comprehensive solution, allowing enterprises to reduce or eliminate fragmentation and dramatically simplify the process for monitoring and managing application performance. New enhancements to SteelCentral advance the communication and interoperability of the performance monitoring modules enabling companies to better manage packet data, infrastructure, applications, and unified communications (UC). In addition, SteelCentral is expanding its end-user experience management capabilities to better address the evolving demands that new devices, platforms, and initiatives place on modern enterprise IT.

SimplePay Selects Riverbed as SD-WAN Provider to Scale Its Business Globally, Provide One-Click Connectivity to AWS and the Cloud

Riverbed Technology announced that SimplePay Group Pty Ltd. (SimplePay) is using Riverbed SteelConnect as the backbone of a software-defined infrastructure to deliver the agility, security and flexibility required to scale its business globally. As the company expanded to serve new customers across a range of industries and geographies, it became clear early on that its existing IT systems and networking infrastructure – while working fine locally - wouldn’t be able to keep up with the needs of a fast-growing, increasingly distributed operation. If SimplePay won new business in the U.S. for example, it would have taken months to provision the new site with cloud connectivity and access to the business-critical applications and services it would need to run. Because every packet of data carries revenue, in looking for a new network solution, security was paramount to SimplePay, as was business agility, given it automates many elements of its business in order to keep head count low and run efficiently. The solution also needed to be easy to manage, and enable the company to leverage its existing Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud environment. SimplePay deployed Riverbed SteelConnect, a revolutionary SD-WAN solution that automates cloud connectivity for hybrid cloud environments. Developed to disrupt the ‘legacy’ network routing market, with the ability to replace thousands of manually configured routers with virtual network design based on zero-touch provisioning and easy change management, SteelConnect allows organizations to create a single, software-defined network spanning hybrid WANs, cloud networks, and branch LAN/WLANs with a centralized cloud-centric management workflow, application-based orchestration, and integrated security. For SimplePay, SteelConnect supplies the internal backbone connection between all of the virtual clouds SimplePay runs in AWS and provides a consistent and secure connection anywhere in the world. This enables it to deploy and connect new infrastructure anywhere in the world within minutes.
