"KISS YOUR DATA HELLO."

Riverbed Technology is the pioneer and, with over 2,000 customers, the worldwide technology and market share leader in wide area data services (WDS) . Riverbed provides the first and only comprehensive WDS solution to a host of severe problems that have effectively prevented enterprises from sharing applications and data across wide areas. By wide area, we mean anywhere in the world. Between Chicago and New York. Or between Seattle and Shanghai.

Riverbed's award-winning Steelhead WDS appliances address all of the issues that affect application performance over the WAN, dramatically improving the performance of applications that companies and knowledge workers rely on every day - including file sharing, email, backup, document management systems, IT tools, as well as ERP and CRM solutions. With Riverbed, any of these applications can be accelerated somewhere between 5 and 50, and even up to 100 times faster .

 
Product Description

Steelhead appliances and Steelhead Mobile software enable wide-area data services (WDS) for enterprises of all sizes. These products make it easy for organizations to accelerate the applications that are most important to their users, anywhere in the world. Steelhead appliances are available in a range of sizes to meet the needs of any remote office - from small sales offices with just a few people, to major design centers and corporate facilities with thousands of employees. Steelhead Mobile software enables workers on the move to enjoy LAN-like access to files and applications whether they are working from home, on the road, or even at customer sites.

Every Steelhead product comes with the Riverbed Optimization System (RiOS) :

  • Data Streamlining optimizes all WAN traffic by removing all redundant data and prioritizing traffic through advanced QoS mechanisms
  • Transport Streamlining improves the behavior of TCP
  • Application Streamlining reduces application protocol inefficiencies and enables disconnected operations
  • Management Streamlining simplifies the deployment, maintenance, and management of the appliances.

By deploying Steelhead appliances and software, enterprises can accelerate application performance from 5 to 50 times and in some cases up to 100 times as well as reduced bandwidth. Steelhead appliances and software can deliver more responsive applications, successful consolidation of distributed IT infrastructure, and enable expedited network-based backup and replication.

The complete Steelhead product family optimizes traffic in both directions, transparent to your applications, and requires no reconfiguration to client and server software. All Steelhead products are designed for easy integration into your existing network, with no changes to routers or servers, and complete compatibility with existing QoS and VoIP implementations.
