Rossignol: Design & Manufacturing International Organization Deploys Riverbed Steelhead Appliances to Consolidate Its IT Systems to a Private Cloud
Rossignol is a leading designer and manufacturer of skis, bindings, ski boots, snowboards, technical equipment and clothing. Rossignol's IT infrastructure was expanding, and the company wanted to centralize its IT resources to a private cloud in order to improve overall IT management and reduce costs. However, Rossignol was aware that moving from a decentralized to a centralized IT infrastructure could adversely affect employee productivity. Rosignol deployed Riverbed Steelhead appliances across its data center and most regional offices. As a result, Rosignol has now successfully consolidated its ERP and data backup systems to its private cloud and experienced an average 7 times improvement in application performance speeds, resulting in reduced costs and improved employee productivity.
