Riverbed Identified as Market Leader by Gartner

Riverbed (News - Alert) Technology, an IT performance company, was recently identified as the WAN optimization controller (WOC) Advanced Platform (AP) worldwide market share leader by Gartner (News - Alert) for Q3 2012.

Gartner recognized the company as the market leader on the basis of its revenue; Riverbed captured 52.5 percent of the worldwide AP WAN optimization market, based on vendor revenue in Q3 2012.

"Global organizations are embarking on the development of new data center architectures, including virtual, cloud, software-defined and hybrid, to achieve their 'do more with less' goals, and are finding that WAN optimization is a critical component to ensure performance across the enterprise," said Eric Wolford, president and general manager of products at Riverbed.

With Riverbed, enterprises can successfully and intelligently implement strategic initiatives such as virtualization, consolidation, cloud computing and disaster recovery without fear of compromising performance.

By giving enterprises the platform they need to understand, optimize and consolidate their IT, Riverbed helps enterprises to build a fast, fluid and dynamic IT architecture that aligns with the business needs of the organization.

"Transformation of the data center is driving the need for WAN optimization and the trend is growing the overall addressable market for WAN optimization. We've continued to be a leader in the WAN optimization market because of our ability to build solutions that not only address the challenges that our customers are faced with today, but also prepare them for next-generation architectures," continued Wolford.

In related news, Riverbed Technology has announced that d'Amico Societa di Navigazione SpA, a shipping organization that supplies dry and oil tankers, is using Riverbed’s wide area network (WAN) optimization solutions to support a data center consolidation initiative as part of its migration to a private cloud.
