Riverbed and SAP

Posted by riverbedtest on November 18, 2010

Eric Wolford, SVP Marketing and Business Development for Riverbed, discusses enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications and SAP, the ERP application market leader.

See the video.

Eric then explains Riverbed's partnership with SAP, where we now supports SAP-specific technology.  This technology is developed on the Riverbed Services Platform (RSP) which offers a hosted SAP instance on the Riverbed appliance while optimizing its performance.  This gives the end-user the perception the application is still local because application performance makes it feel like the application is on the LAN rather than across the WAN.  This capability enables enterprises to consolidate SAP servers to reduce costs but not the performance, while return of Investment (ROI) is typically recognized in under a year.
