Riverbed Seen As Leader In Network Performance Monitoring Space
Independent analyst group Gartner says that technology from Riverbed is so good it’s leading the way in a new technology area.
The area in question is network performance monitoring and diagnostics, or NPMD, about which the respected market watcher has just published its first ‘Magic Quadrant’ guides for buyers. In the Magic Quadrant, organisations can see which vendors the firm’s researchers have identified as worthy of their serious attention.
So it’s great from Riverbed’s perspective that Gartner has also placed it as ‘leader’ in not just this but two other Quadrants, too – Application Performance Monitoring (APM) and WAN Optimisation Controllers.
Welcoming his firm’s inclusion at such a dominant position in this new Quadrant, Paul Brady, General Manager of the Riverbed Performance Management team, notes that as apps become more complex and distributed, it’s “absolutely essential” CIOs get as holistic an operational view of application performance as possible.
That has to be, Brady argues, right the way from the end user up through the network and infrastructure to deep into the application code and components. Only Riverbed can offer that level of overview, he adds.
Riverbed Technology, a WAN optimisation specialist, helps organisations meet their application performance infrastructure challenges.
