Riverbed and Amazon Introduce Enterprise Backup Solution to Run Natively In AWS, Providing Efficient Protection of Cloud Workloads

Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ:RVBD), a leader in application performance infrastructure, today announced a cloud-based version of Riverbed® SteelStoreTM 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.
