Riverbed Extends Performance Management Solutions Into The Cloud
Riverbed Technology has launched a virtual edition of its Cascade Express 460 solution, which provides visibility into private cloud environments.
The company, a leader in application performance infrastructure , unveiled the news yesterday. The virtual edition will allow IT teams to quickly and easily examine private cloud or software-defined data centre environments so they can view application performance and troubleshoot issues before the end user notices.
The Cascade Express 460 Virtual Edition is part of the Riverbed Performance Management product line. The all-in-one solution brings together the monitoring of both traditional and virtualised network environments into a single appliance.
Riverbed’s Performance Management family has been recognised by analyst firm Gartner as the only “leader” in Application Performance Monitoring (2013) and Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (2014). The solutions are celebrated as the only ones on the market that allow users to detect and resolve network performance issues before they impact end users.
Expanding this into the cloud environment further strengthens the company’s credentials in this space.
Dimitri Vlachos, vice president of marketing and products for Riverbed, said: “Software-defined data centres built on private cloud technology offer tremendous savings and flexibility, so businesses are increasingly adopting this approach to provision new services on demand.
“Cascade Express Virtual Edition enables customers to leverage powerful compute and network virtualisation platforms while providing advanced application-aware network performance management. Customers gain a holistic view of their virtual and physical infrastructure, allowing them to have complete insight into application performance regardless of where the application is hosted and how it is delivered.”
