SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Jun 11, 2012) - Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced its participation at Microsoft TechEd 2012 taking place June 11-14 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. Microsoft TechEd 2012 is Microsoft's technology conference for IT professionals and developers that offers comprehensive technical education across suites of products, solutions, tools, and services. At the conference, Riverbed® (booth #2232) will showcase how its performance solutions help Microsoft customers deliver faster response-time to users and gain greater productivity across their entire infrastructure by cost effectively accelerating business-critical Microsoft applications.

Riverbed and Microsoft have worked together on many key Microsoft application and platform areas, enabling organizations to experience Microsoft enterprise software solutions over the WAN and in the cloud as if they were local. Organizations depend on Riverbed solutions, specifically WAN optimization and web content optimization (WCO), to provide exceptional performance to Microsoft's fundamental application platforms. At the conference, Riverbed will showcase its software-based WCO solution, Stingray™ Aptimizer, and one of its WAN optimization solutions, Steelhead® Cloud Accelerator.

Web Content and Collaboration Optimization
Stingray Aptimizer is a software-based WCO solution that is set up on a web server to enable the dramatic acceleration of web-based applications and websites. Riverbed customers using Stingray Aptimizer to increase performance of SharePoint have experienced an improvement in page load times up to four times, while reducing data traffic in some cases by more than 65 percent.

Improving Cloud-based Application Performance
Steelhead Cloud Accelerator boosts productivity and improves business processes by accelerating cloud-based applications like Office 365 and eliminating the impact of distance between the cloud and branch offices, mobile workers, the data center, and business headquarters. Steelhead Cloud Accelerator helps to improve the performance of many of the most commonly used Microsoft applications across the WAN and the public Internet by up to 50 times.
