Flashback: Riverbed ships first Steelhead appliances in April 2004

Posted by bobegilbert on March 9, 2011


Its hard to believe that it has been almost 7 years since we shipped our first product to our first customer.  To celebrate the anniversary, members from the original Riverbed team recently got together to take a photo with the first Steelhead appliance.

Here are the team members in this photo.
