It's too bad we can't all have Riverbed WAN accelerators. When you have one of the Steelhead boxes on each end of your connection, it is freaking magic. Your WAN connection starts acting like a LAN connection. Unfortunately, Riverbed owns that market and they make you pay dearly for their intellectual property.
How often do you see this happen in a market segment?
They're so undervalued it's insane. We've made sure to hold on to some shares, but their performance is awful compared to the competition. They've been dropping steadily for over 2 years and it's hard to figure out why. Yeah, I know they've had some management snafus, but frankly the tech is so good it really shouldn't have that much of an impact.
