Riverbed SteelApp Traffic Manager powers think project for SaaS platform

Riverbed Technology said think project is using its SteelApp Traffic Manager to improve scalability and security of its software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform.

The Munich-based think project, a cloud-based SaaS solution provider for structural and civil engineering organizations with customers such as Audi, BMW, Munich Airport, and Lufthansa Technik, has gone live with 400 virtual servers without any problems and did not experience any failures.

Earlier, think project used an open-source load balancer that did not ensure security and scalability. Riverbed’s virtual application delivery controller (ADC) offers more than load balancing, including built-in security and authentication services, a TrafficScript scripting and configuration language, and compatibility with analytical tools such as Google Analytics.


Jochen Maurer, head of product management at think project, said: “Implementation of SteelApp was fast and seamless with the most important tasks completed in a day and the entire replacement of the old configuration within a week.”

SteelApp enables think project to use analytical tools like Google Analytics. Convenience to users was yet another benefit. During maintenance work, customers can receive an automated text as soon as the platform is up and running again.
