Ensuring Application Performance across Hybrid Environments With Riverbed

The ‘brave new world’ of Hybrid environments

The term “hybrid cloud” is defined differently by virtually every industry analyst, vendor, and company, highlighting the fact that applications leveraging a hybrid cloud architecture can take a wide variety of form factors.

In hybrid scenarios in particular, IT organisations are facing a “brave new world” of performance monitoring in which visibility is dramatically reduced and performance characteristics that have traditionally been accessible are no longer available. IT organisations are increasingly being challenged to manage systems that their tools don’t fully support. Incumbent toolsets simply lack the capacity to monitor beyond organisational borders and into the cloud.

Riverbed SteelCentral provides unified visibility of all elements supporting hybrid cloud.

Riverbed’s multidimensional SteelCentral suite monitors on-premise, cloud, and hybrid services via a wide range of integrated capabilities. Where SaaS and IaaS create monitoring blind spots, SteelCentral mitigates their impact with unified and correlated visibility into network performance, application performance, and supporting infrastructure.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row equal_height="yes"][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17801" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]SteelCentral also supports monitoring for elastic applications, as applications scale up and scale down on Azure and Amazon. By decoupling physical from logical application flows, Riverbed ensures that applications can be accurately modeled whether they execute on physical infrastructure or transient resources such as containers and/or virtual machines.

Recent enhancements include:

  • Additional support for Azure and Amazon Web Services (AWS) monitoring and for virtual datacentres and execution environments
  • Riverbed AppInternals is Azure certified and is now available through both the Azure and AWS marketplaces.
  • SteelCentral UCExpert supports unified communications via an API approach that gathers data from the call manager and the endpoint without probes or agents.
  • NetProfiler enhancements focus on the user experience.
