“The rapid move to the cloud presents new opportunities for two industry leaders, Riverbed and Akamai, to create solutions for enterprises to simplify their extension to the cloud while leaveraging the infrastructure they already have in place,” said Anil Batra, MD, Riverbed. “Accelerating software as a service, for example, across a hybrid cloud environment helps businesses increase application adoption. We believe that greater adoption means improved business results, operating and infrastructure savings, and user productivity.”
“Akamai’s highly-distributed architecture is close to any public cloud infrastructure and Riverbed Steelhead appliances stretch across thousands of enterprise IT networks from the data centre to the branch office and mobile worker,” said Willie Tejada, vice president, Application and Site Acceleration, Akamai.
