AT&T and Riverbed have expanded their relationship to provide customers with a simple, efficient way to back up data offsite to cloud storage environments. AT&T Synaptic Storage as a Service (SaaS), based on the EMC ATMOS storage platform, is a web services-based storage solution that easily scales up and allows customers to pay only for the storage used. It provides elastic capacity on demand with no commitments, minimums, or limits and allows access to stored data anywhere and anytime. Coupled with Riverbed Whitewater, a cloud storage accelerator, AT&T Synaptic Storage as a Service customers can backup data to the cloud faster. Offering improved operational efficiency and reduced cost and complexity, Synaptic receives deduplication data from Whitewater appliance via REST. AT&T also resells and has managed WAN optimization services for customers designed around Riverbed Steelhead appliances.

  • Compellent: Riverbed and Compellent combine to deliver accelerated disaster recovery operations and increased data protection. Riverbed extends Compellent's robust disaster recovery solutions by slashing the time it takes to replicate data and optimize bandwidth utilization. The joint solution offers customers improved performance – up to 87 percent, improved RPO and RTO, and reduced capacity, bandwidth, and management costs.

    Riverbed and Hitachi Data Systems combine to enable highly-scalable IT infrastructure consolidation and optimized data replication for disaster recovery. The joint solution offers customers consolidation of data to a centralized Hitachi High-performance NAS and SAN platform solutions; accelerated access for remote users to their data; accelerated replication for disaster recovery across the WAN; improved RPO and RTO to maximize application availability; and application performance from the DR site when disasters occur.

    Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM), a member of the Windows Server System family, provides continuous data protection to Windows application and file servers. By working as a disk-based intermediary between high-performance servers and slower tape backup systems, DPM can significantly reduce the time required to restore data lost due to a hardware failure.

    Riverbed significantly optimizes Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) to deliver LAN-like performance to remote servers Riverbed Steelhead appliances dramatically accelerate DPM operations and significantly reduce WAN bandwidth utilization. A full replica restore can see acceleration 14 times. An end-user recovery operation can be accelerated up to 41x and can see bandwidth reduction up to of 99%.

    Companies worldwide augment their deployments of NetApp SnapMirror, SnapVault for FAS and V-series storage platforms with Riverbed's comprehensive WAN optimization appliances to make their infrastructure faster, less expensive, and more responsive. Riverbed WAN optimization solutions and NetApp enterprise-ready storage and data protection solutions help customers to improve remote replication and disaster recovery processes, while driving down costs, improving productivity, and avoiding bandwidth upgrades.
