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 capabilities.”

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 thousands of members worldwide, the VMware TAP program includes best-of-breed technology partners with the shared commitment to bring the best expertise and business solution for each unique customer need.
