Riverbed Technology announced its participation at the
Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Customer & Industry Forum, taking
place August 15-18 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
The DISA conference brings together decision-makers and
subject-matter experts from the military services, combatant commands, industry
and academia to share information and ideas that are critical to helping the
Department of Defense (DoD) achieve success.
At the conference, Riverbed will showcase wide area network (WAN)
optimization, satellite communications and application-aware network
performance management (NPM) solutions for defense and intelligence agencies.
Military customers are able to achieve high-performance,
secure access to mission-critical information by combining the market-leading
WAN optimization capabilities of Riverbed Steelhead appliances with SkipWare
functionality within the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP), which gives
organizations the ability to run additional services and applications
The RSP is a protected partition on Steelhead appliances
on which customers can run network infrastructure services and applications.
The combined solution delivers hybrid functionality,
allowing customers to use either Riverbed optimization technology, SkipWare for
Space Communications Protocol Specifications (SCPS), or both as required.
This enables military customers a greater degree of
flexibility in how they deploy Riverbed appliances, as SCPS is the standard for
many inter-agency networks.
More than 13,000 organizations worldwide, across a wide
range of markets, depend on Riverbed to understand, optimize and consolidate
their IT infrastructure. Riverbed delivers hardware, software and virtualized
solutions that overcome performance issues caused by distance, distributed
computing, and ever increasing amounts of data.
Riverbed continues building on its success in the WAN
optimization, application-aware NPM and data protection markets with new and
innovative solutions for accelerating cloud storage and access to applications
and data deployed in public, private and hybrid clouds.
