Riverbed Reveals ADC Enhancements
Riverbed Technology has revealed a range of new capabilities and licensing options for the Riverbed SteelCentral Services Controller for SteelApp.
The leader in application performance infrastructure Riverbed, stated that the updates would make it easier for companies to solve application performance challenges as they evolve toward a hybrid enterprise model. For enterprises with a mix of owned applications and cloud-based services, the enhancements would reduce the cost and complexity involved with the application delivery infrastructure.
The Riverbed SteelApp product family is the number one virtual application delivery controller (ADC) for scalable, secure and elastic delivery of enterprise, cloud and e-commerce applications. The company’s unique “ADC per application” delivery model reduces costs and time to production while supporting rapid change and scale for any application.
The new updates include: advanced features with the flexible, cost-effective option of add-on licensing; micro instance host upgrades and the ability to maintain SLAs with the image upgrade and host migration tools; and easier deployment with the services controller setup wizard.
Jeff Pancottine, senior vice president and general manager of Riverbed SteelApp, commented: “The enterprise is going hybrid… Basic load-balancing has become a minimum standard for ensuring scalable access to web-based applications; but, more functional ADCs are needed in hybrid environments to optimise applications at a more granular level.
“SteelCentral Services Controller for SteelApp manages the licensing of instances of SteelApp Traffic Manager, the market-leading virtual ADC, across the hybrid infrastructure, keeping costs down and simplifying manageability.”
