Riverbed to Showcase IT Infrastructure Performance Solutions at ‘Think Fast

Published March 7th, 2010 - 10:10 GMT

Riverbed Technology, the IT performance company, will demonstrate its wide area network (WAN) optimization solutions at its ‘Think Fast, Think RiverbedÒ’ seminars taking place on March 9 at the Grand Habtoor Hotel in Dubai and March 10 at the Sheraton Hotel in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.


Many organizations are delving into new IT initiatives such as virtualization, private clouds, IT consolidation and cloud computing.  These organizations can leverage Riverbed WAN optimization to improve remote and mobile employee productivity, enable private clouds, and provide enterprise-wide network and application visibility. During these seminars, Riverbed will showcase how its solutions can speed the performance of applications between remote offices, private data centers and mobile workers, in some cases by up to 100 times. Riverbed Steelhead® products enable companies to consolidate IT, improve backup and replication processes to ensure data integrity, and improve staff productivity and collaboration.


“Organizations are constantly under pressure to improve the performance of their IT functions while reducing overall IT costs. During the seminars we will discuss how Riverbed can assist in achieving both of these goals through its broad range of solutions, including Steelhead appliances, CascadeÒ, Steelhead Mobile and the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP),” said Philippe Elie, Regional Director, South Europe, Middle East & Africa, Riverbed.

“Riverbed is a critical part of our IT infrastructure. Without Riverbed we would have paid for a costly bandwidth upgrade. Riverbed enabled us to not only delay this expense, but we’ve also seen an improvement in employee productivity,” said Mehboob Lalani, infrastructure team leader at Aldar Properties.
