Riverbed Steelhead review

Article comments

Reporting has always been a strong suit in RiOS, and RiOS 7 takes it another step further with the integration of Cascade Shark. Previously available as an add-on virtual server package, Cascade Shark allows admins to capture traffic at the packet level for in-depth analysis. It's a big plus for network diagnostics and troubleshooting, and it takes network reporting to its logical conclusion. UDP optimisation, video stream splitting, IPv6 and Kerberos support, and VDI-related enhancements all add to a proven WAN optimisation solution that not only makes slow, congested WAN links run better, but also provides VMware-based server virtualisation in a separate partition, easing deployment of other services at the branch office. With each new release, Riverbed continues to define what a WAN optimization solution should be.
