When ABD Insurance & Financial needed to optimize the connection between its remote data centers and more, Riverbed was able to meet their diverse needs.
"Thanks to Riverbed, we have been able to cut hardware costs and centralize more of our IT infrastructure. This makes network management much easier."
—Christian Hernandez, Comm Mgr, Newman
Riverbed® provides key enabling technologies for enterprise-wide consolidation between data centers, from remote locations, and within branch offices. With Riverbed, organizations can gain the visibility to intelligently consolidate infrastructure, reduce cost and complexity, and deliver high-performance IT to end-users, regardless of their location.
Consolidation remains a top IT priority in businesses across verticals as organizations seek greater cost efficiency, improved data protection, and flexible resource provisioning. By enabling data center consolidation, infrastructure centralization, and branch services consolidation, Riverbed has helped thousands of customers achieve business agility and positive ROI.
Application-aware network performance monitoring (NPM), WAN optimization, edge virtual server infrastructure (Edge-VSI), and application delivery controllers (ADCs) allow organizations to centralize infrastructure resources and better manage the delivery of applications.
Organizations are pursuing enterprise-wide consolidation for many reasons, including cost efficiency, manageability, security, resiliency, and flexibility:
Consolidating data centers and maximizing data center efficiency reduces costs and improves manageability. Riverbed helps customers plan and accelerate data center migrations, eliminate regional data centers while continuing to deliver application performance to remote users, and improve the performance and scalability of applications running in virtualized, consolidated data centers. Organizations at all stages of data center consolidation can benefit from Cascade application dependency mapping, Steelhead WAN optimization, Stingray load balancing, and Granite virtual server infrastructure.
Using Riverbed, IT can fully virtualize edge servers and storage, consolidate to the data center, and project data and applications to edge locations as if they were local. All data can be managed centrally to take advantage of data center tools and cost efficiencies. Granite is edge virtual server infrastructure (Edge-VSI). Granite radically reduces operational burden on IT managers while massively increasing their control over the infrastructure—all at a lower total cost of ownership. Granite is the innovation that enables an architectural disruption known as edge virtual server infrastructure (Edge-VSI). Edge-VSI enables the best of all worlds: 100% consolidated data and applications that deliver LAN performance at the edge over the WAN.
Even though a company consolidates IT infrastructure to simplify management, lower costs, and improve data protection and resource utilization, some services still need to be delivered locally. Local print, DNS, and DHCP are edge services that defy central consolidation efforts. VSP runs these services on the Steelhead appliance, so organizations can eliminate redundant servers to further reduce hardware, software, and maintenance costs and IT complexity. The result is serverless branches running virtually on Steelhead appliances.
