Riverbed to Showcase Market-Leading Satellite Communications Performance Solutions at SATELLITE 2011

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 14, 2011) - Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the IT performance company, today announced its participation at SATELLITE 2011 Conference and Exhibition, taking place March 14 - 17 at the Walter E. Washington Conference Center in Washington, DC. SATELLITE 2011 is the premier annual event dedicated to providing solutions to the satellite end-user community. Attendees can visit booth #949 to learn how Riverbed® helps government organizations achieve greater application performance across satellite networks using wide area network (WAN) optimization and SkipWare.

More than 9,200 organizations worldwide, across a wide range of markets, depend on Riverbed to understand, optimize and consolidate their IT infrastructure. Riverbed delivers appliance-based 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 and network application performance visibility markets with new and innovative solutions for accelerating cloud storage and access to applications and data deployed in the public cloud.

At the conference, Riverbed will showcase its ability to accelerate the transmission of mission-critical data over satellite-based WANs to help both Department of Defense and civilian agencies better meet their operational objectives. Riverbed recently acquired Global Protocols LLC to expand on an existing partnership, enabling customers to derive even greater value out of the combined solution. Currently, customers are able to achieve high-performance, secure access to mission-critical information by combining the award-winning WAN optimization capabilities of Riverbed Steelhead® appliances with SkipWare functionality within the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP)

The SATELLITE Conference and Exhibition will bring together more than 9,500 satellite professionals from the military, government, broadcast, enterprise, mobile, telecommunications and commercial markets. The conference provides today's satellite communications professionals with information on existing and emerging technologies shaping the market's future as well as the opportunity to learn best practices, discover new technologies and collaborate with colleagues.
