This software could be of interest to security-centric software engineers looking to automate the deployment of application delivery services for a network architecture — including those built around software defined networking (SDN).

NOTE: Typically, ADCs are deployed in a network-centric model of "one application per ADC box" or where a shared ADC infrastructure must support the demands of multiple applications.

With the Stingray Services Controller, Riverbed says it is making it possible to achieve an "ADC per application" deployment model.

"This directly addresses evolving application and datacenter architectures, workflows, and operations models that call for a next-generation ADC architecture that can remove bottlenecks, delivering improved agility, high levels of automation, and quicker time-to-service," says the firm.

With the introduction of the Stingray Services Controller, enterprises and cloud providers should be able to automatically provision, deploy, license, meter, and manage their ADC inventory in an as-a-service model.

"With the emergence of the virtualized datacenter, legacy ADCs can be a bottleneck and were starting to be excluded from virtualization strategies and cloud deployments," said Jeff Pancottine, senior vice president and general manager of the Riverbed Stingray application delivery business unit. "With Stingray Services Controller, customers will have a hyper-elastic ADC platform that can adapt to workload changes."
