Leica Geosystems: Leica Geosystems Consolidates IT Infrastructure and Accelerates Application Performance With Steelhead Appliances
Leica Geosystems AG, part of the Hexagon Group. In the last three years, Leica Geosystems AG opened a number of small offices globally. The initial strategy was to provide dedicated Notes and File servers at each office, but the infrastructure costs associated with this approach were too expensive. Leica Geosystems investigated a consolidation strategy, but was concerned that application performance would be adversely affected. They chose Riverbed to overcome these challenges. They deployed Riverbed Steelhead appliances, and this resulted in consolidation of its IT infrastructure to three data centers and improved application performance for its globally dispersed users.
