VMworld: 10 Networking And UC Moves To Watch


Riverbed Granite

WAN optimization kingpin Riverbed confirmed several major updates while at VMworld, including that its virtual ADC product, Stingray Traffic Manager, the software, is now integrated with VMware vFabric Application Director. Riverbed and VMware are also planning jointly developed SDN configurations through which Riverbed will optimize VMware-based SDN and virtual data center platforms using its Cascade products to provide VXLAN support and overall network performance management. And, the company will then use its Steelhead product for better management of WAN optimization-as-a-service in environments using VMware vCloud Director.

Finally, Riverbed and VMware are using VMworld to demonstrate remote and branch office deployments of VDI platform VMware View -- a showcase for Riverbed's newer Granite edge virtual server infrastructure offering.
