Riverbed will showcase several new Digital Networking and Digital Experience Management solutions at Microsoft Ignite 2019 Conference in Orlando, Florida, on November 4-8, 2019 – at booth #1635.

As an Azure-Certified and Gold Cloud Platform Competency partner, Riverbed is working with Microsoft to deliver the ultimate cloud experience – one that delights end users and provides the business benefits customers expect.

During Ignite, Riverbed will showcase several new Microsoft product enhancements:

■ SaaS Accelerator: Riverbed delivers a cloud-based SaaS acceleration service that takes just minutes to spin-up, and is purpose-built to ensure consistent performance of leading SaaS applications for anyone, anywhere, including up to 8x performance improvement of Microsoft O365.

■ Riverbed SD-WAN: Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution SteelConnect is working with Microsoft on validation to meet the Office 365 Networking Partner Program eligibility requirements to achieve the “Works with Office 365” designation. This designation will mean that SteelConnect provides a simple, easy and intuitive Office 365 configuration UX, with default settings directly and automatically facilitating Office 365 connectivity principles. Per the program requirements, the Riverbed SD-WAN offering also:

- Provides features that are based on Microsoft supported and recommended Microsoft APIs

- Demonstrates a high-quality experience and compatibility when used with Office 365

- Aligns deployment practices and guidance with Microsoft’s networking recommendations for Office 365

“Riverbed’s SD-WAN solution, SteelConnect, provides Microsoft applications customers a choice that meets our stringent requirements, and Riverbed is working with Microsoft on validation through the Networking Partner Program,” said Seth Patton, GM at Microsoft. “Riverbed SteelConnect is ideal for enterprises transforming their business applications to the cloud since it enables direct and local Internet connectivity per our networking principles and delivers a high-quality user experience with a cloud-first approach to security.”

■ SteelCentral AppResponse Cloud for Azure: AppResponse Cloud now provides visibility into performance, cost, and security issues in the cloud by monitoring and troubleshooting Azure cloud applications and networks.

■ Digital Experience Management: With Riverbed, organizations not only gain ubiquitous visibility into cloud performance, they can also accelerate the delivery of cloud native applications built and deployed in the containerized cloud. Riverbed’s APM capabilities includes enhanced support for Microsoft’s cloud native .NET Core Framework for containerized apps deployed across a variety of cloud platforms, including Azure Kubernetes Services (AKS), Pivotal Platform, and Amazon Web Services (AWS). In addition, Riverbed Aternity enables Service Desk and End User Services teams to improve end user satisfaction and drive down costs, with self-healing, automated remediation capabilities to the most commonly occurring application, OS, and device issues.
