Riverbed WAN Optimization Solutions Improve Employee Collaboration for Nationwide Workforce at Mazzetti Nash Lipsey Burch

Riverbed WAN Optimization Solutions Improve Employee Collaboration for 
Nationwide Workforce at Mazzetti Nash Lipsey Burch 
Full-Service Consulting and Building Design Firm Speeds Performance
of AutoDesk Revit; Increases Employee Productivity Across 10 Offices 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 --  Riverbed Technology
(NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced that
Mazzetti Nash Lipsey Burch (Mazzetti) a full-service consulting and
building design firm, has deployed Riverbed(R) wide area network
(WAN) optimization solutions to improve collaboration between its 10
offices in North America. As a result of the deployment, Mazzetti has
accelerated application performance by as much as 78 percent. The
improved performance enables employees to be more productive and now
work more collaboratively and efficiently, without requiring
employees to travel.  
Founded in 1962, Mazzetti, a merger of Mazzetti & Associates and Nash
Lipsey Burch, is a nationwide, full-service consulting and design
firm focused on the engineered systems of buildings, including HVAC,
plumbing, fire protection, process piping, technology, lighting, and
power systems. Mazzetti's 150 employees are located in 10 offices and
work collaboratively on AutoDesk(R) Revit(R) software for Building
Information Modeling (BIM)s. However, document collaboration was
often a challenge and required employees to travel to another office
or, in some cases, unproductively sit idle as synchronized changes
locked out users due to latency, severely impacting productivity.  
Mazzetti knew bandwidth upgrades would not fully resolve these
application performance issues, so the company chose to deploy a WAN
optimization solution. Mazzetti selected Riverbed Steelhead
appliances and Steelhead Mobile software because Riverbed delivered
the most application specific optimizations across broadest range of
form factors. Adding to the selection of Riverbed, Mazzetti Director
of Information Technology John Robison had a positive experience
using Steelhead appliances at a previous company. 
"Once we deployed Steelhead appliances in each of our 10 offices and
gave Steelhead Mobile clients to our employees who were frequently on
the road, our lives changed," said Robison. "We were able to sync
changes on Revit in seconds in some cases and we no longer worried
about syncs locking out employees. Now, we're able to make changes to
documents from different offices without any issue. As we no longer
have to fly employees from various offices to work on projects, it
means we save on travel costs." 
Mazzetti saw a 78 percent application performance improvement in peak
periods. To extend the benefits of WAN optimization, Mazzetti
provided a Steelhead appliance to a consulting partner in India.
After the installation, the partner, who was previously unable to get
on Mazzetti's Revit server due to latency, is now able to get instant
access. "Our partner in India got LAN (local area network)-like
performance as soon as the Steelhead appliance was configured," added
Robison. "As a result, we also extended this access to external
contractors by giving them VPN access loaded with Steelhead Mobile.
Now, they have the same fast performance needed to access our BIMs
when we need to collaborate." 
"We have a template of technology solutions for each new office we
open or integrate into the company. As a result of our positive
experience, Riverbed WAN optimization solutions are now a key
technology piece in our template for any new offices we open in the
future," concluded Robison.
