HBOS Passes Milestone of 200 Live Riverbed Steelhead Appliances, Supporting Corporate Growth, IT Agility and Competitive Strength
HBOS Australia wanted consistent, LAN-like performance for all its key applications at its 200+ BankWest branches across Australia. It also needed a WAN Acceleration solution which could support its rapid expansion plans to open 160 new branches on the east coast of Australia over the next three years without blowing out IT costs. Since deploying the Steelhead appliances at over 200 sites, HBOS Australia has reduced its WAN traffic and improved application performance. The Bank has also increased the visibility of what traffic is running across its network, increasing its ability to troubleshoot any potential network issues - all while reducing total IT costs.
