Riverbed Optimizes Data Protection with Cloud

IT performance company Riverbed Technology is optimizing data protection through its new Riverbed Whitewater cloud storage gateway models. Riverbed’s new releases will enable more businesses of all sizes to leverage the benefits of cloud data protection.

The company has designed these models according to the size of the company. Small and medium sized businesses may use the new Whitewater models 510 and 710. The Whitewater model 2010 is ideal for the mid-sized enterprise and targeted use cases in the large enterprise.

Following this announcement, Whitewater cloud storage gateways can now aid businesses cut down operational burdens, costs and complexity when using public cloud storage for data protection.

Riverbed offers hardware-based cloud storage gateway appliances and a virtual version of its cloud storage gateway for data protection.

As many organizations are grappling with the explosion in data growth in their IT environments, cloud storage has emerged as an attractive data protection option. SMBs can quickly and easily add offsite protection capabilities, but only pay for storage as needed and without investing in or managing a secondary data center,” said Bob Laliberte, senior analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group.

As enterprises increase their use of server virtualization and implement other strategic IT initiatives, the growth and the sheer volume of data present a greater challenge for data protection strategies. With these new Whitewater models, Riverbed provides a data protection solution that helps organizations accelerate recovery times, drive down the cost of backup and improve disaster recovery (DR).”

Whitewater cloud storage gateway solutions boast a range of abilities including protecting more data more often; seamless integration without disruption; reduction of IT management cost and time; reduction of backup costs by reducing storage requirements; and secure protection with dual-level encryption.

The solutions also provide the flexibility to work with other cloud storage providers and most popular backup applications.
