Dimension Data has continued its long association with financial organisation, HBOS Australia, by assisting in the deployment of a Riverbed solution across 170 sites.
HBOS comprises four financial services companies, BankWest, Capital Finance, St Andrew's and BOS International. The Riverbed WAN acceleration solution installed is aimed at improving application performance and reducing telecommunication costs as HBOS plans to open 160 further branches on the east coast in the next three years.
DiData general manager of connectivity, George Atrash, said the integration of the Riverbed solution came following evaluation by HBOS. He did not disclose the value of the deal.
"We've done a lot of other work with HBOS and they requested that we supply and implement the Riverbed platform," Atrash said.
DiData already provides services around HBOS' Cisco technology and consultancy and has worked with the Riverbed platform in the past, he said.
"We have a good relationship with Riverbed, although we work with them on an opportunistic basis," Atrash said.
Ongoing support for the Riverbed solution would be through the vendor directly, he said.
