Riverbed renames products offerings
New brand names and focus is on integrated platform
Riverbed Technology, a provider of application performance infrastructure solutions has introduced new product names.
The company said the move will better describe what each product does and reflect how the products deliver an integrated solution. The company state that the new product names are part of the Riverbed Application Performance Platform.
Riverbed said the product renaming is the next step in its evolution and expansion into a multi-product vendor that offers an integrated application platform.
"Riverbed launched our first product 10 years ago with our Steelhead WAN Optimisation solution, and over the last four years, we have made the journey from a single product company to something much bigger. Today, we offer the industry's most complete application performance platform to allow customers to host applications and data in whatever location makes the most business sense, regardless of distance or location, while ensuring the flawless delivery of applications and data. We call this concept location-independent computing and it has been the idea behind the solutions we've brought to market for years," said Kate Hutchison, chief marketing officer, Riverbed.
"We're now updating our product brand names to better communicate what our products do and reinforce how they are part of an integrated platform that ensures applications perform as expected and data is always available when needed."
