Time needed to transfer large volumes of data between international locations reduced by 90% with deployment of Riverbed SteelHead technology.


INDUSTRY: Technology & Entertainment


  • Time-consuming transfers of large volumes of game ROM data between locations in Japan and overseas, creating stress on the network
  • Large file downloads and subsequent uploads occurring in Japan


  • Deployment of Riverbed’s SteelHead WAN Optimisation technology


  • Data transfers between international locations, which used to require half a day, were sped up and now take one tenth of the time
  • Data time lag was eliminated, and development was streamlined
  • The WAN connection was used more efficiently and became more reliable


We could create a comfortable development environment with no lag time by deploying SteelHead appliances at overseas and domestic development locations.
