San Francisco—April 21, 2015— Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the leader in application performance infrastructure, today announced that Australia's The GPT Group has deployed Riverbed® SteelHead™ CX for Cloud, part of the Riverbed Application Performance Platform™, in order to maintain a high level of network and application performance after migrating 99% of its applications from a private, on-premise data center to a public cloud environment. With SteelHead CX for Cloud, GPT Group has seen an 80% reduction in network traffic, allowing the company to reduce bandwidth requirements across its network connections.

The GPT Group is one of Australia's largest diversified property groups, with 26 locations and more than 500 staff across the country. The organization has more than 38,000 investors and is one of Australia's largest diversified listed property groups with a market capitalization of more than $6 billion.
Originally, GPT Group had been using Riverbed SteelHead in its data center and remote locations to guarantee consistent application performance across the organization's 26 sites in Victoria, New South Wales, Queensland and the Northern Territory. For cost benefits and agility, GPT Group migrated its entire data center to a public cloud - all but a single server running a property management system that can't be virtualized.
"The critical success factor of our cloud migration was that performance had to be as good, if not better than where we were previously. We achieved that with Riverbed," said Michael Lockhart, IT Infrastructure Manager at GPT Group. "Riverbed remained a natural fit to achieve superior application performance. The biggest question for us was how we architected the new environment and this is where the discussion came up as to whether we should look at cloud SteelHead options."
GPT Group's current infrastructure environment consists of symmetrical SteelHead CX for Cloud deployments - one in each of the cloud provider's two Sydney data centers and physical SteelHead appliances at each of GPT Group's 26 sites. By choosing to deploy Riverbed SteelHead CX for Cloud, GPT Group is able to meet application performance service level agreements (SLAs) regardless of network latency or bandwidth limitations.
"We see a 5:1 ratio on our optimization so we're generally able to scale down network connection sizes because of the level of reduction that we get from having the SteelHeads," said Lockhart. "We're getting performance that would typically require a much bigger link. A standard site for us is only on a 4MB link but with the 5:1 optimization ratio, we're getting the equivalent of up to a 20MB link at the same cost."
