Akamai And Riverbed Jointly Develop Innovative SaaS Acceleration Solution

"Leveraging existing Riverbed WAN optimization deployments in corporate networks and the globally distributed Akamai Intelligent Platform for Internet optimization, organizations can realize immediate value without having to deploy any new hardware," explained Willie M. Tejada, Senior Vice President & General Manager of the Enterprise Cloud Division at Akamai. "With our joint solution, Riverbed and Akamai are ensuring the best user experience for any application, any user, located anywhere, essentially bringing the cloud closer to the end user."

The three SaaS applications initially supported by Steelhead Cloud Accelerator include:

Google Apps

Google Apps brings simple, powerful communication and collaboration tools to organizations of any size so that users can stay connected and work together with ease – all hosted by Google to streamline setup, minimize maintenance, and reduce IT costs. 

Salesforce.com

Salesforce.com, the enterprise cloud computing company, provides a trusted cloud platform and SaaS applications including its flagship CRM solution, which helps more than 100,000 organizations collaborate easily and connect with customers.

Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft delivers the power of cloud productivity by bringing together online versions of its most trusted communication and collaboration products – business-class e-mail, Web conferencing, instant messaging, document collaboration and workflow all designed to work together seamlessly – with the security, reliability, and control organizations of all sizes require, helping to save time, money and free up valued resources.

Availability: Steelhead Cloud Accelerator is expected to be generally available in Q1 2012.
