Riverbed Speeds Information Access and Collaboration Across Satellite WANs

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) SAN FRANCISCO, CA, March 18 / MARKET WIRE/ -- Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the IT infrastructure performance company for networks, applications and storage, today announced its participation at the SATELLITE 2009 conference taking place March 24 - 27 at the Walter E. Washington Center in Washington, DC. At the conference, Riverbed? will exhibit its WAN optimization solutions, which allow organizations to access applications across a satellite wide area network (WAN) while reducing costs.

Organizations of all sizes depend on satellite connectivity to unite dispersed operations, including headquarters, offshore locations, mobile units and very remote branch offices. While organizations depend on a satellite-based WAN for communication between these dispersed locations, employees often experience difficulty accessing critical data due to inherent latency and bandwidth challenges that cause massive delays.

Unlike satellite-specific optimization products, which typically only improve the behavior of TCP, Riverbed WAN optimization solutions tackle all three factors affecting satellite-based WANs -- limited bandwidth, TCP behavior, and application-protocol inefficiencies. Riverbed WAN optimization solutions are utilized by organizations where land lines are either not available, too expensive, or unable to deliver the required bandwidth, including on oil platforms and ships, and in military field units.

When visiting the Riverbed booth (#1318) at SATELLITE 2009, conference attendees will learn how to eliminate the need for additional IT infrastructure purchases by accelerating applications, reducing bandwidth usage by up to 95%, maintaining SCPS interoperability, and delivering virtualized edge data services to remote sites.
