What:

Software-defined. Mobility. Cloud. These capabilities promise to propel business with no limits. Right? Wrong. Riverbed helps customers overcome long distances and a lack of visibility across the hybrid enterprise. Together, Riverbed and VMware power business with no limits.

 
At VMworld 2014, Riverbed Technology, the leader in application performance infrastructure, will showcase the benefits of location-independent computing delivered by the Riverbed® Application Performance Platform™, a set of integrated solutions that give companies the flexibility to host applications and data in the locations that best serve the business. To fuel the next wave of business growth, IT must help the business overcome visibility and distance limitations. That’s why Riverbed teamed up with VMware to eliminate these limitations in software-defined and cloud infrastructures. Now Riverbed® SteelHead™, Riverbed® SteelApp™ Traffic Manger and Riverbed® SteelCentral™ Services Controllers are certified to run on VMware vCloud Air. Together, Riverbed and VMware enable IT to operate software-defined data centers, run hybrid cloud services, deliver virtual desktops and manage physical desktops, all without limits.
 

DEMONSTRATIONS (Booth #517)

-- Riverbed SteelCentral - Software-defined data centers (SDDC) are a leap forward in efficiency and automation, and VMware NSX virtualization platform is a cornerstone of SDDC. Riverbed SteelCentral provides visibility into NSX virtualized networks. With Riverbed, VMware admins can proactively monitor and troubleshoot virtual and physical network performance in a single solution, and better control virtual overlay network performance in the SDDC.

-- Riverbed SteelApp, SteelCentral, and SteelHead as VMware vCloud Air - Architecting a hybrid mix of private and public cloud enables IT to be agile enough to keep pace with the business. Riverbed SteelHead, SteelApp Traffic Manager, and SteelCentral Services Controllers are now certified to run on VMware vCloud Air. This ensures VMware teams can overcome security, scalability, and performance challenges – resulting in the best user experience in the hybrid enterprise.

-- Riverbed® SteelFusion™ – Virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) delivers desktop security and control, but cost and distance barriers make it difficult to deliver these at remote sites. VMware Horizon and Riverbed SteelFusion have developed a branch converged infrastructure solution that combines local desktop performance with fully centralized provisioning. VMware admins can provision virtual desktops 30x faster and recover from branch outages 96x faster.

-- Riverbed SteelHead - SteelHead accelerates VMware Horizon Mirage for managing branch desktops when businesses aren’t using a VDI architecture. SteelHead, available as a virtual appliance in any VMware environment, leverages a superior data reduction algorithm and transport layer optimization to provide a foundation for acceleration of Mirage traffic, resulting in 4x faster upgrades from Windows XP to Windows 7, 4x faster backups, and up to 98% reduction in Mirage bandwidth utilization.

"We've just seen a huge influx of new partners coming into our ecosystem, and partners building unique offerings on top of our API set," explained Seth Bostock, Chief Executive Officer at IndependenceIT, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
Mobile, social, Big Data, and cloud have fundamentally changed the way we live. “Anytime, anywhere” access to data and information is no longer a luxury; it’s a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives.
