Riverbed expands ADC offering on Amazon Elie: The newest generation of online applications need the ability to scale up rapidly to meet customer demand.
By  Stephen McBride Published  March 6, 2013

Riverbed Technology has announced that its Stingray product family is available through the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

This offering, which is available to the Middle East market, allows the deployment of an application delivery controller (ADC) solution with Web Content Optimisation (WCO) and Web Application Firewall (WAF) security capabilities. The new features are an expansion of the Stingray offering that was first launched on Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) in 2009 using Amazon's DevPay model.

In addition, Riverbed also announced that it intends to make available the Stingray Traffic Manager software with support for Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC), allowing enterprises to deploy highly available applications either within a single availability zone or spanning a hybrid environment of zones and third-party data centres.

Stingray Traffic Manager software is an ADC for applications running on Amazon Web Services, helping developers build applications that can scale to much higher transaction rates, with greater resilience and flexibility, according to Riverbed. Stingray Traffic Manager is available through AWS Marketplace in a combination of options, including the Stingray Aptimizer's WCO technology, and Stingray Application Firewall's application-aware Web firewall for application security.

"The newest generation of online applications for retail, gaming, and digital media need the ability to scale up rapidly to meet customer demand and be able to roll out new features on a daily or weekly basis," said Philippe Elie, director, Business Operations EMEA at Riverbed.

"Maintaining this level of sustained service enhancement means that developers need to maximise productivity and accelerate release cycles. Stingray software unleashes application performance in the Amazon Cloud and allows developers to focus on building new features and services."

The Stingray Traffic Manager software with support for Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) is expected to be generally available in Q4 2012.
