Purchased three 7070 WAN optimizers for my data center. WAN optimization is between 20-75% depending on application/protocol. Product can increase latency / slow performance on some protocols / applications that are encrypted. Meed to create bypass rules for those to avoid the issue

Riverbed has been a good solid product for my company. It takes a little more daily/weekly management than we prefer, but overall we like the results we get. We see an immediate improvement of bandwidth and application performance as soon as we deploy the solution at a location.
Applications change so fast, make sure you keep the product updated and tuned to your environment to gain the maximum results.
It works well and they are constantly updating the product to keep up with the change application environment.
This is a good product, but over time can get pretty expensive, especially if you try to deploy to all locations.
The Steelhead solution is good, but must have a unit at both ends of the circuit and the cost can rise quickly with many locations. It would be nice if they had more options in the VM space.
Dedicate more resources to keep the product tuned for maximum performance.
The Steelhead product is very solid and has been around for a long time. They continue to improve the product and find new ways to leverage the product across a number of solutions.
The deployment team did a good job and would get the necessary resources involve as necessary.

We found that our internal expertise rose quickly and gave rise to additional desirable features that could be incorporated into future software releases. As a result, our internal SME on the platform was named and continued to contribute to a customer-based Technical Advisory Council and is frequently consulted by account management and other Riverbed customers.
Ensure you fully understand your architecture goals in order to deliver on key business continuity, backup and recovery and DR objectives in addition to the out of the box WAN Optimization capabilities. This will help determine your investment overall and enable you to tell a positive story on Riverbed as a platform of services.
