Riverbed Steel Head WAN Optimization Pack

WAN optimization solutions that accelerate the transfer of data and applications over your network

Riverbed SteelHead™ CX has a simple, yet critical, mission: Speed the transfer of data and applications over the Internet and wide area networks (WANs). Whether it's in branch offices, datacenters, rugged and virtual environments, or the cloud, the performance and productivity you get is so fast you’ll swear your WAN is behaving like a LAN.

SteelHead CX brings sophisticated WAN optimization to organizations ranging from small businesses to the largest branch offices and datacenters. Riverbed Optimization Software (RiOS®) delivers LAN-like performance across the WAN. SteelHead CX is available in a variety of form factors/models, including virtual software, and cloud instances.

With Riverbed SteelHead CX WAN Optimization VM Pack you get:

  • Industry-leading application and data performance
  • Multiple WAN optimization techniques, including data reduction and application streamlining
  • Support for up to 1 million connections through an intelligent and scale-as-you-grow performance architecture
  • Quality of service (QoS) and path selection features
  • Packet capture, troubleshooting, and application-level visibility
  • Subscription based cloud form factor in Microsoft Azure, AWS and ESX based clouds.
  • Virtual form factor scale upto 1Gbps optimized bandwidth
