The Perfect Holiday Gift for the Citrix Lover: Steelhead Appliances

Posted by riverbedtest on December 18, 2009

Dear Santa,


I have been a
good user all year (except the photo-copier incident at the Annual Party, which
I’m sure we’d all like to forget) and I think you probably have some
end-of-year budget.  Anyway, if you
and the IT elves could please review and give me the following, I’d be the
happiest worker ever.  I want:


– Citrix to be
much faster (it takes way too long now)

– Quicker
download/upload of files

– Speedy

– More bandwidth

– A Red Ryder
carbine-action, 200-shot, range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock.





Well, I’m sure
you’ve received many similar holiday helpdesk requests already.  Good news, Riverbed is here to make the
holidays happy for Citrix customers everywhere!


With RiOS 6.0,
Steelhead appliances can easily optimize the WAN for
Citrix ICA – up to 40% faster response times and 83% bandwidth
Many Citrix customers have struggled with
performance across the WAN, impacting end user acceptance and
productivity.  Riverbed now has
simplified configuration and enhanced QoS capabilities for Citrix delivering
both bandwidth reduction and up to 40% better response times.  Just contact your local Riverbed team
to order in time for the big day.


As for the Red
Ryder air rifle, well, I’m sure your users would just shoot their eyes out, so
better give them the Steelhead appliances for Citrix instead.


Best wishes for
the holidays!
