The SteelHead™ product family performs a number of optimizations, including deduplication, TCP protocol optimization, and a variety of adaptively tuneable options for compression and data reduction.
SteelHead also includes extensive Hierarchical Quality of Service (QoS) capabilities to ensure that EMC traffic receives the appropriate, guaranteed level of WAN bandwidth and latency. This gives the traffic priority access to the network infrastructure, ensuring consistent performance to maintain RPO/RTO targets.
SteelHead has been qualified by EMC as approved for WAN optimization, and testing has shown improvements in the throughput performance of EMC Celerra Replicator data transfers by as much as 545 percent, more than 5 times faster than the same operation when performed on an un-optimized WAN connection. Additionally, Riverbed has worked closely with EMC to develop specific SRDF application-level optimization and auto configuration capabilities that are unique to SteelHead platforms.
