Riverbed Steelhead Review

​It's helped ​to reduce WAN traffic by approximately 60%.​


Valuable Features:

I've found the appliance to be the most valuable. Also, it's easy to use and configure.

Improvements to My Organization:

It's helped to reduce WAN traffic by approximately 60%.

Room for Improvement:

I would like to see more IP services, perhaps aligned better Netflow stats. The Central Management Console (CMC) newly named SteelCentral Controller (SCC) has rudimentary netflow capabilities, but it doesn’t have particularly in-depth data. I realize the need for a dedicated NetFlow environment but because the SteelHead technology deal with flow and not IP this is not capable.

Deployment Issues:

We've had no issues with deployment.

Stability Issues:

We've had no issues with stability.

Scalability Issues:

We've had no issues with scalability.

Other Advice:

The SteelHead product is very good, easy to configure, however a home page which can be altered would enhance the gui
