Riverbed recently released the latest edition of it’s cloud storage gateway, both upgrading the software and providing new hardware options.
As mentioned in my previous post Riverbed has a joint SaaS optimization solution with Akamai called Steelhead Cloud Accelerator. In this blog post I will show you how to use this technology to accelerate your salesforce (people and the application).
