Riverbed Will Showcase Cloud Solutions To Defense and Intelligence Agencies

Riverbed To Showcase IT Performance Solutions At Defense Information Systems Agency Conference

San Francisco—August 10, 2011Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the IT performance company, today 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® (booth# 455) will showcase wide area network (WAN) optimization, satellite communications and application-aware network performance management (NPM) solutions for defense and intelligence agencies.

Visitors to the Riverbed booth can learn how the company’s WAN optimization and application-aware NPM solutions can help accelerate the transmission of mission-critical data to help the defense and intelligence communities bring the full capabilities of the enterprise to the tactical edge. 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 virtually. 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. Virtualization, consolidation and cloud computing promise huge cost savings and improved efficiencies, but as users move farther from their data, slow applications and file transfers can stall these strategic initiatives. Riverbed delivers to the remote office and mobile workers the same “local area network (LAN)-like” performance, no matter where the private data center or public cloud may be. 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.

The theme of this year’s DISA conference is “Power to Connect: Enterprise within Reach.” The DISA conference allows attendees to interact with DISA senior leaders and other participants to hear about and discuss the successes, challenges, initiatives and way ahead in the areas of enterprise infrastructure; command and control and information sharing; and operating and assuring the reliability, availability, diversity, capacity and security of the enterprise.
