Riverbed Launches New Accelerator for Office 365 and SaaS Accelerator 1.2

Riverbed has announced that it is adding new cloud-based offerings into its arsenal of Riverbed Application Acceleration Solutions, all specifically built to help significantly accelerate and provide a consistent user experience for Microsoft collaboration, productivity and video streaming applications, the company said.

As companies continue to provide broader flexibility for employees to work from anywhere, organizations can run Riverbed´s flexible SaaS offerings to optimize performance and productivity for SaaS apps across multiple office locations and for remote users regardless of location, bandwidth or latency.

The release of SaaS Accelerator (available in Q3 2020) will provide new support for Microsoft Teams and Microsoft Stream live events and on-demand video, delivering increased performance for the best experience for users in any office, accessing video from any device.

Riverbed SaaS Accelerator, a fully cloud-based service, enables enterprises to ensure fast, consistent performance and user experience as demand for always-available enterprise SaaS applications continues to grow, and now scales to meet the needs of the largest enterprises in the world to support 50,000 concurrent users per accelerated app.

Analyst firm ESG recently validated the performance of SaaS Accelerator in their report published in June 2020, which tested the solution across 13 locations globally.
