Riverbed SteelFusion achieves EMC VSPEX Labs Validation
Riverbed Technology has announced that its SteelFusion solution has achieved EMC VSPEX Labs validation.
Riverbed, a leader in application performance infrastructure , said yesterday that the open integration between EMC VSPEX Proven Infrastructure and SteelFusion brings together best-in-class technologies to create and deliver flexible IT solutions for customers. The update promises to allow joint customers to virtualise branch servers and storage.
The validation is also set to provide a host of other benefits including centralising backup operations, instant recovery of branch services and the ability to get data out of high-risk locations by protecting it across multiple data centres. This will contribute to a lower total cost of ownership while also making it far easier for IT teams to overcome challenges around data storage, data protection and application performance.
Riverbed is a select member of the EMC Business Partner Program for Technology Connect Partners. The company has also achieved E-Lab qualification for SteelFusion and the EMC VNX and VMAX platforms to deliver product integrations, making implementation far easier and providing business continuity for joint customers.
Commenting on the news, John Martin, senior VP and general manager of storage delivery at Riverbed, said: “Islands of remote infrastructure are difficult to support and cost-inefficient, yet branch offices hold more than 50 per cent of corporate data, making that data vulnerable to loss and theft".
“By leveraging the flexibility of the VSPEX platform, Riverbed and EMC allow customers to transition to the cloud and deploy virtualised infrastructure that secures and centralises data without losing any of the speed and access branch workers require.”
