SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, announced today that the Riverbed® Stingray product family has been positioned by Gartner in the Visionary quadrant of the 2012 "Magic Quadrant for Application Delivery Controllers (ADC)" report authored by Joe Skorupa, Neil Rickard, and Bjarne Munch and published October 30, 2012. The entire report can be viewed here.
According to the report, "The application delivery controller has evolved into a key component of the data center architecture, and enterprises should evaluate ADCs based on how they integrate with this architecture and support more-advanced features, such as user and traffic control and monitoring."
The continued evolution of the datacenter architecture from a physical to a virtual and cloud environment requires enterprises to deploy ADCs that are more flexible, dynamic, and application-aware than ever before. Riverbed Stingray is designed to be deployed seamlessly across all IT architectures, including physical, virtual, cloud, software-defined, and hybrid data centers. The solution's key differentiators are its flexible software and virtual form factors, the custom scripting capability that provides organizations with granular control over their applications, and advanced features such as web content optimization (WCO) and web application firewall security capabilities.
"Joyent has innovated a unique cloud infrastructure platform, built from the ground up to address the new performance, availability and security requirements of today's real-time web and mobile applications," said Jason Hoffman, Founder and CTO at Joyent. "Our strategic decision to work with Riverbed is based on the company's experience in managing application performance across several deployment scenarios coupled with the fact that they are one of the only companies offering a software ADC product."
"Riverbed has a long-term vision of optimizing application performance in any environment," said Apurva Davé, vice president of products and marketing, Stingray business unit, Riverbed. "The way users access applications and how datacenters are defined to support applications is a shifting landscape. We designed the Stingray products to provide performance, scale, security and control into the new world of private and public clouds."
