Riverbed Technology, the leader in application performance infrastructure, today announced Riverbed SteelFusion, the industry-leading hyper-converged edge solution, is extending its reach to cloud environments with support for Azure through Microsoft StorSimple and Amazon Web Services through AWS Storage Gateway.
Customers now have more flexibility and choice for cloud-based data storage across remote locations and can leverage the cloud as a secondary storage tier for added capacity, backup, or for tiering in conjunction with private data centre storage assets.
"We are excited to give our SteelFusion customers more options and flexibility with the ability to store their remote data in the cloud, whether it be with Microsoft Azure or Amazon Web Services," said Paul O'Farrell, Senior Vice-President and General Manager of SteelHead, SteelFusion and SD-WAN solutions at Riverbed. "Many of today's enterprises are already using a hybrid IT model, with data both in the cloud and data centre. Now with access to cloud-based storage and backup capabilities with SteelFusion, our customers can easily leverage the cloud as a secondary storage tier without any impact to users at the edge."[Full Story.]
