From their website: Riverbed Technology is the pioneer and, with over 3,000 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
In very simple terms, the impact for companies is the difference between
having dial-up and having broadband. Suddenly, the impossible becomes possible,
just like that.
Riverbed’s Steelhead WDS solutions are available anywhere in the world
through certified resellers, who are members of the Riverbed Partner Network,
from Riverbed OEM partners or directly from Riverbed.
