FM Logistic’s IT infrastructure had grown over time resulting in poor application performance. The company wanted to speed up access to critical enterprise applications and centralize e-mail without negatively impacting employee productivity.
FM Logistic installed 71 Riverbed® Steelhead® appliances in 13 countries, together with Riverbed® Cascade® product family solutions, to improve application performance, and application and network visibility. The company noted that critical applications ran up to 40 times faster and that bandwidth utilization improved by 75-80%.
