According to a recent Silver Peak Press Release, Silver Peak is targeting the Steelhead refresh of River Bed products for replacement with its own Virtual Appliances. This means substantial savings to you the Riverbed customer.
Why continue to purchase hardware and be continually harassed with hardware refresh cycles?

It comes fully pre-configured as a virtual system and does not need to have an operating system, or any server maintenance performed against it. Receive the unique Silver Peak Network optimization capabilities of optimizing all IP applications.
One Example: Upgrade from Riverbed EX-560 Model L to Silver Peak VX-1000 is an 86% savings
