GeoEngineers: Riverbed Performance Platform Improves Collaboration and Ensures Success of Consolidation and DR Initiatives
GeoEngineers offers an integrated suite of services for companies looking to build communities, harness and manage the earth's resources, etc. GeoEngineers' large CAD and GIS files took so long to travel over the company's Wide Area Network (WAN) that professionals in different offices had trouble collaborating. Replicating the files over the WAN to a disk backup system in the company's data center was equally inefficient, compromising the ability to recover information in the event of a disaster. They chose Riverbed Technology to overcome these challenges. They implemented Steelhead WAN optimization, Granite edge virtual server infrastructure, and Whitewater cloud storage gateway - solved the problems posed by these large files. The results deploying Riverbed platform were the avoided costly bandwidth increases and server upgrades and efficiency.
