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.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
