Riverbed Technology, Inc. Key Developments
Riverbed Technology Selects Riverbed SteelHead and SteelFusion to Modernize its IT Environment
Jun 18 15
Riverbed Technology announced that Northwest Pipe Company was able to modernize its IT environment by choosing Riverbed SteelHead and Riverbed SteelFusion, thus improving corporate productivity, data protection and network visibility for faster issue resolution. With the Riverbed solution, the company was able to remedy many of the difficulties in its IT infrastructure that arose in the last few years, such as: servers and other equipment coming to end-of-life, a growing amount of network traffic, manufacturing data that needed better protection, low bandwidth at some manufacturing sites, and a lack of network visibility. Northwest Pipe says it implemented the Riverbed solution for approximately $1 million less than it would have cost to solve those issues separately. The SteelHead and SteelFusion combination provided a single, much more affordable solution to the issues Northwest Pipe was facing. SteelHead addressed the bandwidth saturation and application performance issues, and eliminated the need for additional bandwidth. SteelHead also provided the higher level of visibility into application and network performance that Harris wanted. SteelFusion, which integrates server, storage and network infrastructure, eliminated the need for new servers at the manufacturing sites –taking the IT infrastructure out of the branch. It also secured the manufacturing data by allowing it to be stored and managed centrally in the data center, without compromising any performance and capacity requirements.

Jun 16 15
Riverbed Technology announced that Tecan Trading is using Riverbed® SteelFusion™ to enable its “Flexible Service Infrastructure,” which turns IT into a fluid resource that can adapt to meet dynamically changing business needs. SteelFusion, a hyper-converged infrastructure solution, enables zero IT at the branch by virtualizing and consolidating 100% of data and servers from remote sites into data centers, as well as centralizing data security and IT management without losing the benefit of running branch services locally. Tecan Trading’s new highly virtualized architecture makes it quicker and easier for the company to automate, provision, backup and restore branch offices from the data center. In fact, the zero branch IT approach of SteelFusion has reduced provisioning time for Tecan Trading for new branch offices by 80%. With SteelFusion, Tecan Trading gets exceptional local performance for applications, instant recovery in the face of outages, and the security and scalability that come from data centralization. Having one common architecture has freed Tecan Trading from its former fragmented branch architecture and enables it to support mobile workers, cloud services and virtual computing for decreased infrastructure costs. Riverbed SteelFusion and the Riverbed Application Performance Platform™: The Riverbed Application Performance Platform ™ gives CIOs end-to-end visibility, optimization and control across an entire enterprise. A key part of the platform, Riverbed SteelFusion is the first and only hyper-converged infrastructure solution that is designed to enable zero IT at the branch. SteelFusion consolidates 100% of data and servers out of branches and into the datacenter where it can be properly secured, managed and protected, while ensuring fast local performance of branch applications and services.
