Riverbed Positioned in Gartner's 2012 Magic Quadrant for ADCs

Increasing traffic loads, evolving landscapes and complex deployment infrastructures have almost become the norm, and the need to tackle these challenges has therefore grown urgent. We must create products that can control, optimize and secure the service online users receive.

As Riverbed (News - Alert) Technology is one of the only companies offering a software application delivery controller (ADC) product that can provide performance, scale, security and control into the new world of private and public clouds, it has been positioned by Gartner (News - Alert) in the Visionary quadrant of the 2012 "Magic Quadrant” for ADCs.

The Gartner report was authored by Joe Skorupa, Neil Rickard and Bjarne Munch, and published on October 30, 2012.

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."

Riverbed's Stingray product family has been designed to work within all cloud environments, can be easily integrated into an application stack, deployed seamlessly across all IT architectures and delivered consistently excellent service levels.

The solution's flexible software and virtual form factors, Web content optimization, custom scripting and Web application firewall security capabilities sets Riverbed's products and solutions apart from others.

Moreover, as data center architecture has evolved into a cloud environment, enterprises needed ADCs that are flexible, dynamic and application-oriented. Riverbed's Stingray is designed for the cloud, portable for any application and better suited to any development and operations needs.

Thousands of customers run Stingray ADCs in their data centers or clouds, and with its new, advanced features like Web content optimization, organizations can not only load balance their websites, but create a better experience and drive more revenue.

“We designed the Stingray products to provide performance, scale, security and control into the new world of private and public clouds," noted Apurva Davé, vice president of products and marketing, Stingray business unit at Riverbed.

Many companies like Joyent are working with Riverbed as it has tremendous experience in managing application performance across several deployment scenarios, offering a software ADC (News - Alert) product.

It’s no wonder, then, that it has been recognized by Gartner in the 2012 "Magic Quadrant for ADCs.
