Riverbed hosts WAN optimization seminars
The seminars will show how companies can cut costs and improve performance, says Elie.

WAN optimization specialist Riverbed is to host two seminars in the Gulf to promote its solutions.

The seminars, which will be held under the banner ‘Think Fast, Think Riverbed', will take place at the Grand Habtoor Hotel, Dubai, on 9th March, and the Sheraton Hotel in Riyadh on 10th March. The events will include sessions on how Riverbed solutions are able to improve application performance between sites, and improve connectivity between remote sites and mobile workers, and enable uptake of private clouds.

"Organizations are constantly under pressure to improve the performance of their IT functions while reducing overall IT costs. During the seminars we will discuss how Riverbed can assist in achieving both of these goals through its broad range of solutions, including Steelhead appliances, Cascade, Steelhead Mobile and the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP)," said Philippe Elie, regional director, South Europe, Middle East & Africa, Riverbed.

Mehboob Lalani, infrastructure team leader at Aldar Properties commented: "Riverbed is a critical part of our IT infrastructure. Without Riverbed we would have paid for a costly bandwidth upgrade. Riverbed enabled us to not only delay this expense, but we've also seen an improvement in employee productivity."
