IT infrastructure firm Riverbed will be demonstrating its “cutting-edge product offerings” at this year’s GITEX, as it looks to help businesses in the region cut costs.

Riverbed says that its family of wide area network (WAN) optimisation solutions liberates businesses from common IT constraints by increasing application performance and providing enterprise-wide network and application visibility – all while eliminating the need for increased bandwidth, storage or servers.

Among the products and services on display, the company will highlight the benefits of its WAN optimisation solutions, including Steelhead appliances, Riverbed Services Platform (RSP), and Steelhead Mobile and Cascade appliances. “GITEX is the region’s premier technology event and serves as the ideal platform for us to showcase our cutting-edge product offerings,” says Marcus Chambers, Vice President Sales, EMEA at Riverbed. “We believe the attendees at Gitex will benefit from an understanding of WAN optimisation technology and specifically how Riverbed’s solutions can help IT consolidation and cost savings initiatives.”     

Riverbed says its IT infrastructure performance solutions increase the performance and value of an organisation’s existing infrastructure and applications such as file sharing, email, backup and recovery, document management, IT tools, ERP and CRM solutions.

It also claims that its WAN optimisation product portfolio allows organisations to increase network throughput and application performance by five to 50 times and in some cases up to 100 times. Its solutions have been deployed across a range of enterprises and industries. Recently, the company obtained EMC qualification for its Steelhead appliances, allowing companies to accelerate disaster recovery processes while reducing overall IT costs.
