The popularity of cloud-based services is growing within organizations of all sizes. According to Forrester Research, the SaaS market itself is expected to be more than $100 billion by 2017. "While attractive in many ways, the cloud introduces challenges around performance," said Eric Wolford, Executive Vice President and General Manager of Products at Riverbed. "To overcome application performance bottlenecks encountered in unpredictable cloud environments, the Steelhead Cloud Accelerator gives organizations global SaaS performance that feels local.""Seadrill, a leading offshore deep water drilling company, wanted to take advantage of the economics, ease of management, accessibility and storing space offered by cloud technology and decided to centralize their enterprise applications using cloud computing. However, when employees logged into Office 365 in the morning, it could take as long as two hours before their mailboxes were fully synchronized and led to bandwidth constraints for other types of traffic due to saturated satellite links, often leaving users frustrated," said Pal Goran Johansen, Network Engineer, Harris Caprock Communication, a global provider of fully managed communications for remote and harsh environments. "Having reliable and consistent access to Office 365 was mission critical for communication and collaboration between its oil rigs, offices and headquarters. After testing the Steelhead Cloud Accelerator, response times with Office 365 dramatically improved and freed bandwidth for other traffic. The results showed that Seadrill employees would see significant benefit, as employees would be more productive and collaborative across its 45 oil rigs in EMEA, South America and North America, as well as its offices across the world."
