When STOMO underwent expansion, the additional data traffic generated put pressure on the company's wide area network. STOMO began to centralize its IT to improve application management, but employees complained slow applications. Increasing bandwidth was expensive, so the company adopted a Steelhead WAN optimization solution from Riverbed Technology as a cost effective alternative.
By deploying Steelhead appliances, STOMO has achieved annual savings of $13,000 by avoiding bandwidth upgrades. It also realized a three-fold increase in optimized bandwidth capacity and reduced network traffic by more than 70%. These gains translated into improved application performance, and increased employee productivity.
