Firms Push WDS to New Lengths

Arthur Cole

Global firms take note: Riverbed Technology and Interwoven have teamed up on an optimization solution aimed at wide- (and we do mean wide) area data services (WDS).


The companies are pairing the Steelhead data networking appliance with Interwoven's WorkSite file management system to improve the performance of back office and document access processes, even if employees are not on the same continent.


Organizations that man offices worldwide often experience a range of performance limitations over large distances. Application delivery is a particular problem for remote areas that tend not to have access to the highest bandwidth. Riverbed claims a 50- to-100-fold improvement in network performance with its Steelhead appliance. Integration with the WorkSite software opens up the possibility of lifecycle management and employee collaboration capabilities on a global scale.

I have set up clients with Riverbed's Steelhead technology specifically for Interwoven, and I can attest first-hand that the performance is as good as is claimed. All other data transfers, including e-mail and home/shared directory access, is improved to this extent as well. Reply
