Riverbed Steelhead Appliances Improve Application Performance and Employee Productivity for Manufacturing Company
Perma-Pipe ME is a wholly owned subsidiary of Perma-Pipe Inc. After consolidating key applications to its data center, Perma-Pipe ME found that employees based at its branch offices were unable to access data over the WAN. Perma-Pipe chose the Riverbed WAN optimization solution following a successful proof of concept. The result is a 5-7x increase in application performance, and a 4x increase in bandwidth capacity. Perma-Pipe ME has now successfully implemented a customized document management system and data is now backed up, over the WAN, to the data center. Employee productivity has increased and the company realized an ROI in just 12 months.
