CenterPoint Selects Riverbed Technology, Inc.'s Application Performance Platform

Riverbed Technology, Inc. has announced that CenterPoint Properties has selected the Riverbed Application Performance Platform to support the company's public cloud-based IT environment. Prior to deploying Riverbed solutions, its cloud-based applications were slow and frustrated end users. CenterPoint Properties leveraged Riverbed SteelHead SaaS and the company reported a reduction in Office 365 traffic on its network by 63%, improving end user productivity. CenterPoint Properties also uses Riverbed SteelHead and Riverbed SteelCentral network performance management (NPM) solutions for visibility, optimization, and control of its cloud applications and multi-networked environment. Because IT is critical but not an area of expertise for the company, CenterPoint Properties decided to transition its IT environment to the public cloud, starting with Microsoft Office 365 for email and office applications, Microsoft OneDrive for Business, and Microsoft Azure.

JLL to Use Riverbed Technology’s SteelHead as Foundation for Next-Generation, Hybrid Network

Riverbed Technology announced that JLL is using Riverbed SteelHead as the foundation for its next-generation, hybrid network. JLL uses technology to deliver value to its commercial real estate owner, investor and corporate clients in more than 80 countries. SteelHead ensures superior application performance over networks, supporting intense traffic from bandwidth-intensive applications like live video, and both cloud-based and SaaS applications. JLL also uses the built-in virtual platform on SteelHead appliances to run other services, such as staging software updates. This use of Riverbed’s technology has made it possible to remove file servers from branch offices, achieving significant savings in costs and time.
