Riverbed to Showcase IT Infrastructure Performance Solutions at TechNet Asia-Pacific 2009

Company to Demonstrate the Role of WAN Optimization in Enhancing Communications and Improving Efficiency Within Defense Organizations

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/02/09 -- Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the IT infrastructure performance company for networks, applications and storage, today announced its participation at TechNet Asia-Pacific 2009, taking place November 2-5 at the Sheraton Waikiki and Royal Hawaiian Hotels in Honolulu, HI. TechNet Asia-Pacific is the largest and most complete defense, communications and information technology event for the Asia-Pac region. Attendees can visit Riverbed® at booth #39 to learn how the company's wide area network (WAN) optimization solutions enhance communication, collaboration and operational efficiency within defense organizations.

Organizations wishing to accelerate mission-critical data across diverse network environments can leverage Riverbed WAN optimization solutions to increase performance across the broadest range of applications. Organizations, including government agencies and defense departments, utilize Riverbed to enable IT environments by consolidating and virtualizing global IT assets, speeding data transfers and decreasing backup and data replication times by up to 90 percent, all while cutting IT costs by up to 30 percent.

Riverbed recently extended its commitment to federal enterprises by completing a successful assessment by the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC). JITC, a military organization under the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and the Department of Defense (DoD), conducts security and interoperability testing of national security systems and information technology systems hardware, software and components. To further its support for federal enterprises, Riverbed continues to work on additional important federal security standards. Riverbed is currently in the process of seeking Federal Information Processing Standards Publications (FIPS) 140-2 Validation and is also officially in evaluation for an EAL4+ certification under the Canadian Communications Security Establishment's (CSE) Common Criteria Evaluation and Certification Scheme (CCS).

Conference attendees can learn more about Riverbed WAN optimization solutions and how they are currently being leveraged by defense organizations, including:

-- Riverbed Steelhead® appliances, powered by the Riverbed Optimization System (RiOS®), accelerate applications, enabling customers to consolidate their IT assets, optimize bandwidth usage and improve disaster recovery (DR) processes -- leading to cost-cutting, increased data security and greater application performance. The most recently announced version, RiOS 6.0, which is expected to be generally available in Q4 2009, has new and enhanced support for Citrix, Mac clients, Oracle E-Business 12, and Web applications such as Microsoft SharePoint and SAP. Disaster recovery capabilities and the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP) are also enhanced with many new features.

-- RSP is a virtualized platform that enables a drastic reduction in an enterprise's IT footprint by running up to five third-party software modules at one time -- without the need for separate dedicated servers. Services currently available for deployment on the RSP include streaming media, print services, network management sensors, unified threat management/web proxy services and DNS/DHCP/IPAM. Additionally, through Riverbed's partnership with Global Protocols, SkipWare is available as an application enabled to run on the RSP, enabling comprehensive, cross-layer optimization without sacrificing Space Communication Protocol Standards (SCPS) standards compliance or interoperability.

-- Steelhead Mobile software can help defense organizations meet mobility performance requirements by enabling employees to instantly access data from any location and accelerate applications to remote locations, giving warfighters timely access to mission-critical information.

To learn more about Riverbed WAN optimization solutions, conference-goers can visit Riverbed on the TechNet Asia-Pacific 2009 show floor.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Over the course of two days, in addition to insightful conversations and presentations delving into the industry's current pressing challenges, there was considerable buzz about digital transformation and how it is enabling global enterprises to accelerate business growth. Blockchain has been a term that people hear but don't quite understand. The most common myths about blockchain include the assumption that it is private, or that there is only one blockchain, and the idea that blockchain is...
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
The term "digital transformation" (DX) is being used by everyone for just about any company initiative that involves technology, the web, ecommerce, software, or even customer experience. While the term has certainly turned into a buzzword with a lot of hype, the transition to a more connected, digital world is real and comes with real challenges. In his opening keynote, Four Essentials To Become DX Hero Status Now, Jonathan Hoppe, Co-Founder and CTO of Total Uptime Technologies, shared that ...

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on...
IoT is rapidly becoming mainstream as more and more investments are made into the platforms and technology. As this movement continues to expand and gain momentum it creates a massive wall of noise that can be difficult to sift through. Unfortunately, this inevitably makes IoT less approachable for people to get started with and can hamper efforts to integrate this key technology into your own portfolio. There are so many connected products already in place today with many hundreds more on the h...
