Riverbed to Highlight SD-WAN and Visibility Solutions for the Cloud at AWS Public Sector Summit for Government

With Riverbed SteelConnect, federal agencies can transition to a software-defined networking approach with one-click connectivity to AWS

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Riverbed Technology will showcase a set of software-defined and visibility solutions at the AWS Public Sector Summit, June 12-14, 2017 in Washington, D.C. to help federal agencies capitalize on their digital transformation goals, achieve their missions, and deliver better services to citizens. Riverbed will highlight the benefits of SteelConnect, the industry’s first and only SD-WAN (software-defined wide area network) solution to unify management and policy-based orchestration spanning the entire network – LAN/WLAN, WAN, data center and the cloud, with one-click connectivity to Amazon Web Services (AWS).

As federal agencies are in the midst of a significant digital transformation, Riverbed solutions simplify cloud networking and optimize app performance while providing end-to-end visibility. Whether it’s migrating apps to AWS, developing cloud-native apps, or integrating apps across hybrid clouds, Riverbed helps improve app and network performance, minimize risk, and eliminate government disruption when migrating apps to the cloud.

“To realize the vision of federal IT modernization and digital transformation, the underlying network infrastructure must evolve alongside innovations in application development and service delivery,” said Davis Johnson, Vice President of U.S. Public Sector at Riverbed Technology. “Cloud applications often find their speed limited by congestion and latency, as workloads travel from various remote offices to Trusted Internet Connections and finally to the cloud. To accurately achieve desired performance goals, agencies need tools that enable them to easily predict performance constraints so prioritized investments can be made to avoid them.”

At the conference, attendees will learn how Riverbed delivers the tools they need to understand, simplify, optimize, protect, and orchestrate applications and data across the hybrid cloud, and extending into the cloud with AWS.
