More than 13,000 organizations worldwide already use Riverbed WAN optimization solutions to accelerate applications and to dramatically reduce bandwidth requirements; many of them have also deployed the solutions to enable faster data protection, thereby reducing their recovery time objectives (RTO) and recovery point objectives (RPO). As replication has emerged as a preferred strategy for more frequent and seamless protection of storage between data centers, many enterprises have deployed Riverbed Steelhead® appliances to accelerate disaster recovery (DR) operations, in some cases up to 55 times, and to reduce WAN bandwidth requirements by up to 95 percent.

For unmatched performance, flexibility and fault tolerance in large data centers and DR environments, organizations have deployed the Steelhead 7050 model appliance that combines new levels of bandwidth and TCP session scalability with solid-state drives (SSD) and 10 Gigabit Ethernet (10 GbE). Riverbed also offers innovative solutions for accelerating cloud storage and access to applications and data deployed in public, private and hybrid clouds. For organizations that are grappling with the explosion in data growth in their IT environments, Riverbed Whitewater™ cloud storage gateway solutions are an attractive option for data protection with fast, seamless, drop-in access to major public cloud storage providers and LAN (local area network)-like performance, connecting directly to most popular backup tools.

DRJ's Fall World conference focuses on all aspects of business continuity, including data processing, IT, risk analysis, resiliency, communications, crisis planning, awareness training, certification, industry regulations and more. For more information about DRJ's Fall World 2011, please visit:
