Run hybrid cloud services

Architecting a mix of private and public cloud enables IT to be agile enough to keep pace with the business. Riverbed SteelHead, SteelApp Traffic Manager, and SteelCentral Services Controllers are now certified to run on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service. This ensures VMware teams can overcome security, scalability, and performance challenges - resulting in the best user experience in the hybrid enterprise.
