Networking vendor Riverbed (NASDAQ: RVBD)is updating its Whitewater cloud storage acceleration product portfolio with the new Whitewater OS 1.1.
The primary different between Whitewater OS 1.1 and the initial 1.0 version is expanded support for third party storage systems.
When Whitewater first launched, there was support for Symantec NetBackup, EMC Atmos and IBM’s Tivoli Storage Manager as well as Amazon’s S3 storage service. Riverbed is now expanding Whitewater to support EMC NetWorker, Quest vRanger, and CA ARCserve Backup.
Whitewater is now also supported on the Nirvanix Storage Delivery Network (SDN).
“The benefits of this solution is that customers can move data into the cloud faster and they download data faster,” Steve Zivanic, VP of marketing from Nirvanix told InternetNews.com. “From the Nirvanix perspective it’s like putting a Ferrari front-end to our enterprise cloud.”
