Riverbed (RVBD +1.5%) names co-founder David Wu its new CTO; he replaces Steve McCane, who resigned from the position (as well as from Riverbed's board) in February. Riverbed notes Wu helped develop the architecture for its bread-and-butter Steelhead WAN optimization hardware line, and also calls him "the innovator behind" Riverbed's new Granite appliance, which enables data consolidation and improves storage performance for remote offices.
