Riverbed Technology, the IT performance company, has announced that it attended the IDC Middle East CIO Summit 2011 - held in Dubai on February 20 and 21 - as a Gold partner. The company also revealed that it will take part in an exclusive roundtable organised by CPI to create greater awareness about the strategic advantages of its WAN optimisation and network application performance visibility solutions. During the roundtable, Riverbed® will make a presentation on the topic "Virtualisation and consolidation - the next phase".

The CPI roundtable on "Virtualisation and consolidation" will take place at The Westin Hotel, on February 23. Mark Lewis, Senior Director of Marketing and Alliances EMEA at Riverbed will be spearheading the roundtable meeting, and will present on how IT managers can choose and achieve the best results with virtualisation.

The IDC Middle East CIO Summit 2011 brought together the best minds from resilient enterprises, fresh perspectives from IDC analysts and collective intelligence from the top business leaders. The event provided insights in IT refresh strategies, emerging technologies and best practices that have near-term impact on the business landscape.

At the "Virtualisation and consolidation" roundtable meeting, Riverbed will join trend-setting IT executives, network managers and IT decision makers from across the region in exclusive discussions about the benefits of virtualisation, the state of virtualisation projects in their organisations and the challenges they are trying to overcome.

More than 9,200 organizations worldwide, across a wide range of markets, depend on Riverbed to understand, optimize and consolidate their IT infrastructure. Riverbed delivers hardware, software and virtualized solutions that overcome performance issues caused by distance, distributed computing, and ever increasing amounts of data. Virtualization, consolidation and cloud computing promise huge cost savings and improved efficiencies, but as users move farther from their data, slow applications and file transfers can stall these strategic initiatives. Riverbed delivers to the remote office and mobile workers the same "local" performance, no matter where the private data center or public cloud may be. Riverbed continues building on our success in the WAN optimization and network application performance visibility markets with new and innovative solutions for accelerating cloud storage and access to applications and data deployed in the public cloud.
