the hybrid enterprise with VMware: rvbd.ly/1lqmRD8
Additionally Riverbed is a member of the access tier of the vCloud Air
ISV Partner program and is listed on the VMware Solution Exchange.
The typical enterprise is transforming into a mix of on-premises
applications and cloud-based services, with core applications and data
running in private data centers and others running in the public cloud.
Networking is also going hybrid with enterprises looking to mix low cost
public Internet links with traditional MPLS circuits to form truly
hybrid WANs. This combination of private assets and public services
defines the hybrid enterprise and its opportunities and challenges. It
gives CIOs the combined capabilities of both private and public clouds
and networks, but also adds architectural complexity and blind spots for
support, management and security. Riverbed solutions such as the
SteelApp, SteelCentral and SteelHead product families are designed to
enable the hybrid enterprise perform at its peak, optimizing application
and data performance across private and public data centers and networks.
“As applications move between on-premise and cloud environments,
Riverbed on vCloud Air can move with them, providing end users with a
positive experience wherever the application is deployed,” said Jeff
Pancottine, senior vice president and general manager of SteelApp at
Riverbed. “SteelCentral Service Controller for SteelApp can be used to
manage the licensing of many instances of SteelApp Traffic Manager, a
market leading virtual ADC, across the hybrid enterprise, keeping costs
down and simplifying manageability. SteelHead helps deliver the ideal
end-user experience with its application optimization and acceleration
The VMware Ready program is a co-branding benefit of the Technology
Alliance Partner (TAP) program that makes it easy for customers to
identify partner products certified to work with VMware cloud
infrastructure. Customers can use these products and solutions to lower
project risks and realize cost savings over custom built solutions. With

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
