What do you like best?

Riverbed is easy to use and implement. Its fail over is amazing, which is a "pass through" mode if the appliance fails, basically acting just like an ether net cable. It does this even when off. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Upgrading firmware versions through the webgui can be difficult. There are multiple errors when you try to download straight from the riverbed support site. I end up just downloading the ISO and uploading it to the riverbed manually. This does take longer, however. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

While riverbed is good. There is a chance that they might fall behind with the times as technology advances with the use of private MPLS lines that you can use from other organisations which connect you to their LAN for faster connections around the world. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use riverbed to connect remote sites around the world back to our HQ. One of the best benefits we've noticed is that it will keep outlook sessions active even when a user logs off. This means that all the emails that are sent to that recipient are loaded into the mailbox straight away instead of saturating a link as it gets the data from our exchange server from across the world.
