Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the performance company, today announced that Riverbed Steelhead® Cloud Accelerator has been named the Best of TechEd Award winner in the Cloud Computing category. Steelhead Cloud Accelerator, developed by Riverbed® in partnership with Akamai® Technologies, provides a first-of-its-kind solution to accelerate software-as-a-service (SaaS) performance for Microsoft Office 365. Winners were announced during the Microsoft TechEd Conference, which took place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. This award recognizes the innovation behind Steelhead Cloud Accelerator, which provides a complete solution to overcome the potential performance problems created by the distance between end users and their applications, problems that must be addressed to realize the full potential of SaaS
"As organizations embrace SaaS applications like Microsoft Office 365 for centralization, flexibility and cost savings, getting fast performance over the network is often a challenge. This recognition from Microsoft TechEd validates the value of Steelhead Cloud Accelerator for organizations seeking to overcome the unpredictable performance of hybrid cloud networks. By delivering local-like access to applications in the cloud, organizations can take advantage of the elasticity and cost savings promised by SaaS, the fastest growing segment of cloud computing."
-Eric Wolford, executive vice president and general manager, products group at Riverbed
"Riverbed Steelhead Cloud Accelerator is a one-of-a-kind Software as a Service (SaaS) application accelerator for Office 365, Google Apps, and Salesforce.com that provides dramatic performance gains compared with non-optimized WAN connections. By making a remote cloud resource appear to be a fast local network resource, Steelhead Cloud Accelerator eliminates the performance bottleneck at the very heart of public and hybrid cloud computing."
-Jason Bovberg, senior editor of Windows IT Pro wrote in an article published on June 15
