EMC RecoverPoint and Riverbed SteelHead (Performance Brief)

EMC® RecoverPoint family provides cost-effective, local continuous data protection and/or continuous remote replication solutions that allow for any-point-in-time data recovery. Riverbed SteelHead WAN Optimization solutions deliver maximum performance for business applications and data transfers over Wide-Area Networks (WANs).


The performance of RecoverPoint continuous remote replication can be impacted by characteristics common to wide-area networks, including packet loss, latency and limited bandwidth. SteelHead WAN optimization appliances can be leveraged to overcome the negative effects of these impairments, delivering LAN-like performance for RecoverPoint and all other business applications traversing the WAN.


In this paper you will learn about performance benefits of the combined EMC RecoverPoint and Riverbed SteelHead solution, as measured through collaborative testing from EMC and Riverbed.
