The views I created using Riverbed open APIs ease capacity planning of Internet bandwidth / Internet peering, help negotiate costs with upstream transit providers by easily qualifying the most important destinations, and elaborate a peering (public / private) policy to collect the traffic from Internet exchange points.

BDO is using Riverbed SteelFusion as a key element of its transformation to a more agile IT environment.
The results were powerful and immediate. We saw a 60-70% reduction of traffic on the network with SteelHead. But just as big of an achievement for us as the acceleration is the visibility. With SteelCentral NetExpress we were able to see we had legacy equipment and misconfigured applications hogging valuable bandwidth, and address it immediately. That level of insight is critical for us as our network expands and moves further into the cloud.

We needed to somehow manage a better connection to each store.

Employees who previously connected to their data and applications via the LAN, reported no degradation in performance after moving to the new campus and being shifted onto the MPLS line. This is perhaps the best indication of the success of this deployment
