The Riverbed Certified Performance Engineering (RCPE) Professional Application Optimization instructorled course teaches IT professionals how to optimize user traffic between clients and servers and from one site to the next. Use cases for implementation of datacenter optimization architectures and how WAN solutions can enhance digital performance will be reviewed. Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to greatly improve user experience across Wide Area Networks (WANs) through installing and configuring Riverbed cloud and virtual SteelHead solutions and implementing related optimization technologies.


This course is specifically designed for Riverbed customers and resellers/partners involved in the design or deployment of the Riverbed SteelHead product family in more complex enterprise environments. For students who will perform more basic operational support and reporting, we recommend the “WAN200 Optimization Essentials” course.

Thinking about Onsite?

If you need training for 3 or more people, you should ask us about onsite training. Putting aside the obvious location benefit, content can be customised to better meet your business objectives and more can be covered than in a public classroom. Its a cost effective option. One on one training can be delivered too, at reasonable rates.

Submit an enquiry from any page on this site, and let us know you are interested in the requirements box, or simply mention it when we contact you.
