The International Rescue Committee (IRC) deployed Riverbed® Steelhead® appliances to dramatically reduce network traffic and WAN costs.


IN BRIEF

  • 75 percent reduction in WAN traffic
  • 65 percent reduction in HTTP traffic
  • 45 percent reduction in MAPI traffic
  • 99 percent reduction in SMTP traffic

The IRC is a 75-year-old non-profit that focuses on refugee issues. They have 10,000 staff members located in 42 countries throughout the world. In places like Africa, where satellite-based communication is the only way to go, IT was far from a reliable and dependable resource. They needed help and turned to Riverbed.

Riverbed's WAN optimization solution was an ideal fit for the IRC's low-bandwidth, high-latency environments. After installing SteelHead appliances, they were able to dramatically reduce their WAN costs. Specifically, they saw a 75 percent reduction in WAN traffic, a 65 percent reduction in HTTP traffic, a 45 percent reduction in MAPI traffic, and a 99 percent reduction in SMTP traffic.
