Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA. At the conference, Riverbed® will demonstrate its performance platform solutions, including wide area network (WAN) optimization, application delivery controllers (ADCs) with web content optimization and web application firewall capability, and performance management solutions in Microsoft environments.

News Highlights
At the Riverbed booth (#711), Riverbed will demonstrate application performance solutions including Riverbed Steelhead® WAN optimization appliances, Steelhead Cloud Accelerator, Stingray® Traffic Manager ADC with web content optimization (WCO) and web application firewall software and Riverbed Performance Management solutions, including Cascade® application-aware network performance management (NPM) and OPNET application performance management (APM) solutions.

  • Steelhead WAN optimization solutions deliver speed, scale, simplicity, and security for Microsoft applications, overcoming bandwidth and geographical limitations to improve productivity and enable global collaboration. Steelhead Cloud Accelerator improves application performance and manages the delivery of business-critical data and content in Microsoft Office 365 environments while decreasing bandwidth utilization.
  • Riverbed Stingray Traffic Manager, a software based ADC with integrated WCO and web application firewall capabilities, allows IT to consolidate, scale, and move applications easily between physical data centers, virtual environments, and the cloud. This flexibility is critical for customers with hybrid cloud environments and provides scalability and agility that cannot be matched by hardware.
  • Riverbed Performance Management solutions, which include the Cascade application-aware NPM and OPNET APM product lines, deliver a unique combination of end-user experience monitoring, transaction tracing, and deep component monitoring correlated with IT infrastructure/network intelligence to maximize the performance, availability, and productivity of critical applications throughout their entire lifecycle. The latest release of OPNET AppInternals Xpert® 8.5 delivers seamless integration with Microsoft Visual Studio to streamline application debugging and troubleshooting. Application support teams can use AppInternals Xpert in test and production environments to identify issues early and rapidly remediate performance problems before end-users and customers are impacted.
