BANGALORE, INDIA: Riverbed Technology, the IT infrastructure performance company for networks, applications and storage, today announced the upcoming release of version 6.0 of the Riverbed Optimization System (RiOS), which powers Riverbed’s award-winning WAN optimization solutions.

With RiOS 6.0, Riverbed continues to deliver industry-leading performance for the broadest range of applications and platforms being used in today’s distributed IT and cloud infrastructure environments.  Riverbed continues to enable organizations to support more users on more platforms, with RiOS 6.0 featuring new and improved support for Citrix XenApp, Mac clients, Oracle E-Business Suite 12 and many web applications, such as Microsoft SharePoint and SAP.

In addition, Riverbed is building upon its lead in delivering solutions to enhance disaster recovery (DR) scalability with new features and higher performance for data center-to-data center replication.  This enhanced version of Riverbed WAN optimization is the most comprehensive to date, providing organizations the best approach for their distributed IT and private cloud infrastructures.

In RiOS 6.0, Riverbed further improves the customer experience:

·         Consolidation Initiatives – Companies are leveraging the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP) to consolidate up to five branch services within the Steelhead appliances running on the VMware platform.  With RiOS 6.0, the RSP offers enhanced virtual disk support and enhanced virtual machine high availability. RSP makes it easier to further consolidate branch office services that organizations do not want moved to the data center.

·         Security – RiOS 6.0 continues to increase the simplicity and scalability of Riverbed’s industry-leading SSL acceleration functionality by adding server IP auto-discovery, which enables organizations to quickly and easily add a range of servers and also yields improved performance for secure connections.

·         Visibility and Manageability – RiOS 6.0 introduces a number of features that help tie the Steelhead appliance into the wider network operation and management tools that customers rely on. These features include support for Netflow v9, SNMP v3, pass-through traffic reporting, and easier setup of SMB signing compatibility. This integration with the broader IT environment creates additional insight and easier management for users, and ensures that Riverbed operates smoothly even in secure environments.
