Khaleej Times reduces bandwidth costs with Riverbed WAN optimization Galadari Printing and Publishing Co. L.L.C is the publishing house of one of the leading English Dailies in the UAE. Khaleej Times is the first and highest circulated English newspaper that was launched in the UAE in 1978. Khaleej Times tried several approaches to address their application and IT infrastructure performance challenges. TEKSALAH, the gold-partner of Riverbed in UAE, suggested they consider the WAN optimization solution from Riverbed, and Khaleej Times decided to run a proof-of-concept project and installed Steelhead appliances at their Dubai and Abu Dhabi offices. Overall, the WAN optimization solution has delivered a number of business benefits, from cost savings associated with managing branch offices to improved user productivity.
