Vyatta for Riverbed RSP
Delivers Advanced Routing and Security in a Software-based Network OS
Vyatta and Riverbed have partnered to deliver a consolidated edge device combining the Vyatta network OS with Riverbed Steelhead appliances. Adding Vyatta's routing and security software to the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP) enables enterprises to deploy a single best-of-breed edge device to connect, protect and optimise branch office networks.
Vyatta and Riverbed have verified Vyatta's routing and security software runs in the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP). In this environment, Vyatta can provide full routing (BGP, OSPF, RIP, and static routes) and security features (stateful firewalling, NAT, VPN, IPS, etc.) In a typical configuration, Vyatta is deployed on the RSP and configured to operate on the WAN-side of the networking connection to process inbound traffic before the RSP passes the traffic to the Steelhead for processing for full Riverbed functionality and sent to the LAN. Traffic in the reverse direction is first accelerated by the standard Steelhead functionality, then processed by Vyatta and sent to the WAN.
