Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute support data intensive research applications with Riverbed.

Due to the dynamic content and high volume of requests, the Institute required an advanced load balancer and application delivery controller which offered flexibility, scalability and more control over its platform. The Institute chose Riverbed application delivery controller.
