Riverbed Unveils Next Generations Of Flagship Solutions
Riverbed Technology has announced the next generation of two of its flagship products.
Riverbed SteelHead 9.0 and Riverbed SteelCentral AppResponse 9.5 were unveiled at the Riverbed FORCE 2014 conference. The company, the leader in application performance infrastructure, says these latest iterations will deliver the most complete visibility, control, and optimisation solution to accelerate performance of on-premises, cloud, and SaaS applications.
As well as providing optimisation for any app, the upgrades will also offer the user far greater visibility of the performance of their IT environment, from data centre to the cloud. Furthermore, the newest versions of SteelHead and SteelCentral AppResponse deliver simplified control for hybrid networks, with network path selection capabilities that make it easy to group applications via business-intent policies.
These improvements are supported by tighter integration between the two products, which in turn makes the Riverbed Application Performance Platform the most complete platform for CIOs to control and deliver IT resources across an enterprise.
Jerry M. Kennelly, Riverbed chairman and CEO, commented: “This announcement offers breakthrough innovations, and Riverbed is now poised to do for cloud and SaaS applications what we’ve done for more than 1,100 applications across the wide area network for the last decade.
“With these new solutions, Riverbed is continuing to deliver on our vision of enabling hybrid enterprises to transform application performance into a competitive advantage by maximising employee productivity and leveraging IT to create new forms of operational agility.”
Riverbed SteelHead 9.0 and SteelCentral AppResponse 9.5 are both expected to be generally available in Q4 2014.
