Riverbed application acceleration solutions offers significant data reduction in file transfer
Riverbed announced today the results of the ESG (Enterprise Strategy Group) technical evaluation that tested Riverbed Application Acceleration Services in environments that emulate a modern, distributed organization providing core collaboration services via SaaS to employees across multiple locations worldwide. The ESG report findings concluded, through hands-on testing and actual production use across 13 global locations, that Riverbed application acceleration solutions provide significant data reduction in file transfer and consistent acceleration of widely used SaaS applications such as Microsoft O365 and Salesforce. Organizations can run Riverbed solutions unnoticed in the background to optimize performance and productivity for remote users, regardless of location, bandwidth or latency.
The ESG report validated Riverbed’s solutions, SaaS Accelerator and Client Accelerator, significantly and consistently accelerate data transfers to and from SaaS applications from anywhere across the globe. The testing concluded that Riverbed significantly accelerated Microsoft O365 in every region tested. In many cases, the report noted files transfers that previously took minutes were reduced to seconds. This included reductions in file transfer times to 89.3% in Dubai in the EMEA region. The report found that organizations deploying Riverbed technology at scale could greatly benefit from both enhanced productivity and improved user experience while saving valuable hours of time for every user. Additionally, ESG found data reduction was remarkably consistent across all sites, averaging nearly 81% globally.
The report quantified the results in stating that organizations can reclaim thousands of hours of lost productivity per year even for moderate data users. Furthermore, ESG stated that organizations can very easily attach this technology today as part of a revised business operations plan and enable workers to be productive from anywhere.
“More than ever, organizations desperately need technology that can deliver results quickly, increase productivity and performance, and deliver a better user experience regardless of location. Even long-term, after COVID-19 passes, we expect to see greater workplace flexibility, with more employees working from anywhere,” said Subbu Iyer, Chief Marketing Officer at Riverbed. “Riverbed Acceleration Solutions play an important role in driving productivity and minimizing the issues of latency and data congestion that are inhibitors to maximizing the full value enterprises can achieve from SaaS applications – whether a user is working from a remote location or in an office. The report findings further validate the SaaS and client/mobile acceleration that many of our customers are already experiencing.”
