At the recent Tech Field Day event (NFD10), Riverbed announced it’s entry into the SD-WAN market with it’s new solution currently dubbed Project Tiger. This threw me off guard, for I typically think of Riverbed as an APM or WanOp solution sitting between my Data Centers and large branch sites, optimizing particular traffic. I never conceived the possibility that Riverbed would enter a market dominated by edge routers. Oh, but one should not be so foolish. Riverbed certainly isn’t. With bold statements like, “The future of the WAN is NOT … a router,” it seems that Riverbed is prepared for disruption.
