Khaleej Times: Riverbed Technology Helps Newspaper Improve Application Performance Speeds, Increase Employee Productivity, and Make Significant Cost Savings
The Khaleej Times is currently the highest-circulated English-language newspaper. Employees at the Khaleej Times Abu Dhabi office were experiencing difficulties in accessing key business applications and information held at the newspaper's data center in Dubai. Increasing application speeds across the WAN by upgrading the bandwidth would be expensive, take a long time to implement, and would not solve the issue of latency. After successfully testing the Riverbed WAN optimization solution, Khaleej Times deployed Steelhead appliances at its data center and Abu Dhabi office. This resulted in a 5 times improvement in file download speeds, 30 times increase in bandwidth capacity, increased employee productivity, and significant cost savings.
