Why Riverbed


Riverbed delivers performance for the globally connected enterprise.

With Riverbed®, enterprises can successfully and intelligently implement strategic initiatives such as virtualization, consolidation, cloud computing, and disaster recovery, without fear of compromising performance.

When organizations consolidate IT and move to cloud environments, the distance created between users and their data often results in high-latency and reduced bandwidth.
