Riverbed Launches Most Powerful Version Of SteelHead To Date
The leader in application performance infrastructure, Riverbed Technology, has unveiled the most powerful version of its SteelHead product to date.
The latest iteration of Riverbed SteelHead – the CX 70 series – is the first WAN optimisation solution specifically designed to meet the needs of modern applications in the hybrid enterprise.
The company states that Riverbed SteelHead CX 70 comes complete with a hardware update, including solid state drive-based architecture, double the RAM capacity and increased processing power for great scalability and even better application performance. The updates have been geared towards today’s hybrid enterprise, which combines on-premise and cloud-based elements.
SteelHead is ideal for these environments as it can securely optimise the growing number of connections between end-users and web-based application servers. It also provides network traffic information that improves the visibility essential to troubleshooting, fixing, and predicting network and application degradation.
Paul O’Farrell, senior vice president and general manager of the SteelHead Products Group at Riverbed, said: “Riverbed is best positioned to do for hybrid networks and SaaS applications what we’ve done for traditional WANs and applications running on-premises for over 10 years.
“SteelHead has always delivered unparalleled optimisation to applications, and we’ve now added visibility and control across hybrid apps and hybrid networks, which are critical to enabling hybrid enterprises to achieve peak performance. Our new CX70 hardware series coupled with SteelHead 9.0 and SteelCentral AppResponse 9.5, offers the most powerful solution for IT to transform application performance into business performance.”
