The Riverbed Optimization System (RiOS™) is the software that powers Riverbed’s unique award-winning line of Steelhead™ application acceleration appliances and Steelhead Mobile client software. RiOS is based on patented technologies that solve a range of problems affecting wide area networks (WANs) and application performance, including:

• Insufficient WAN bandwidth
• Inefficient transport protocols in high-latency environments
• Inefficient application protocols in high-latency environments
• Inadequate tools to classify and prioritize traffic according to business needs, at a point in the network where this can be done on the WAN.
