Riverbed Services Platform (RSP)A branch office box.
Consolidation and virtualization help businesses deliver valuable services more efficiently, increase flexibility, and lower costs. The Riverbed® Services Platform (RSP) gives you the ability to run up to five additional services and applications virtually in a protected partition on the Steelhead® appliance from Riverbed. The Steelhead appliance is the only WAN optimization device to run industry-leading technology from VMware as the virtualization platform.
Using this revolutionary approach, you can deploy edge services virtually in all your branch offices without having to deploy and maintain full-blown servers to run the applications, thereby delivering a branch-office-in-a-box solution to organizations. This minimizes the hardware needed at the branch office, enabling you to consolidate IT operations even further.
With the RSP, you can reduce complexity, cut costs, and simplify management, while simultaneously delivering essential local services. The RSP runs on most Steelhead appliance models to protect your existing investment and deliver better ROI.
