Riverbed One can argue the technical merits of Riverbed's Steelhead versus Cisco's WAAS. From people I have interviewed who have tested the two products, Riverbed can accelerate the performance of a broader range of applications than Cisco, but for many of the core enterprise applications, WAAS is close. However, the real reason many customers buy Riverbed is that it's fast to deploy and easy to manage. I also think Riverbed has done a great job of creating sustainable differentiation, after adding application optimization features over the years.
