10 © 2006 RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY, INC – CONFIDENTIAL 10 Wide-area data services (WDS) is an integrated approach

11 The Riverbed Optimization System (RiOS)

12 © 2006 RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY, INC – CONFIDENTIAL 12 Application protocol inefficiencies Transport protocol chattiness Not enough bandwidth If you dont solve all three, users wont see performance benefits. The three root causes of poor wide-area application performance

13 © 2006 RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY, INC – CONFIDENTIAL 13 Data Streamlining Transport Streamlining Application Streamlining Management Streamlining Eliminate redundant bytes from transfers Eliminate transport protocol inefficiencies Optimize application WAN performance Enable transparent deployment & central management RiOS is an integrated approach The Riverbed Optimization System

14 © 2006 RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY, INC – CONFIDENTIAL 14 The RiOS underlying framework Initiate new TCP sessions 1. Accelerate the applications that are most important to your business Works for all application that use TCP Orders of magnitude improvements Maintain TCP sessions WAN DATA CENTERBRANCH OFFICE Maintain TCP sessions 2. Make it simple to deploy and manage Transparent deployment Auto-discovery, auto-interception No changes to clients, servers, or applications Robust central management

15 © 2006 RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY, INC – CONFIDENTIAL 15 Data WAN Data streamlining overcomes bandwidth limitations Reconstructed Files & Data Request Files & Data Steelhead auto-intercepts response, and segments data Only new bytes compressed & sent over the WAN 60-99% reduction in WAN utilization Requests go directly from the client to the server DATA CENTER BRANCH OFFICE 16-Byte references communicate megabytes of existing data Remote Steelhead reconstructs data and delivers it to the client

16 © 2006 RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY, INC – CONFIDENTIAL 16 WAN Transport streamlining overcomes TCP limitations Make TCP payload bigger 16KB to 100KB+ The net effect is a 60-98% reduction in round trips DATA CENTER BRANCH OFFICE Repack payload with references From 100KB+ to Virtual 1MB+ References New data Data

23 Management Streamlining Transparency & high availability

24 © 2006 RIVERBED TECHNOLOGY, INC – CONFIDENTIAL 24 Simplicity is key for a successful WDS deployment Simple to deploy Immediate impact across applications I was very surprised by how simple the deployment was. I expected a complex integration, but it only required that I give each appliance an IP address. It was only a matter of minutes before I had the boxes up and running. - Senior Systems Engineer, Investor AB We were quite surprised when one day our backup process took 25% of its usual time, because we were busy analyzing the effects of Riverbed Steelhead appliances on our FTP transfers. We made no changes to our software – the Steelhead appliances just started working right away. - Director of IT, Mercury Interactive
