Performance is critical to unlock the potential of virtualized and cloud resources. The distance introduced by centralization, or a move to the cloud, can adversely impact performance. In this session attendees can learn how Riverbed WAN optimization solutions can help ensure that nothing impairs the success of the next IT initiative.

More than 13,000 organizations worldwide, across a wide range of markets, depend on Riverbed to understand, optimize and consolidate their IT infrastructure. Riverbed delivers hardware, software and virtualized solutions that overcome performance issues caused by distance, distributed computing, and ever increasing amounts of data. Virtualization, consolidation and cloud computing promise huge cost savings and improved efficiencies, but as users move farther from their data, slow applications and file transfers can stall these strategic initiatives. Riverbed delivers to the remote office and mobile workers the same "local area network (LAN)-like" performance, no matter where the private data center or public cloud may be. Riverbed continues building on its success in the WAN optimization, application-aware network performance management (NPM) and data protection markets with new and innovative solutions for accelerating cloud storage and access to applications and data deployed in public, private and hybrid clouds.

VMworld is the leading virtualization and cloud infrastructure event specifically designed for IT professionals seeking to enable the cloud. For more information on VMworld Las Vegas 2011, visit
