Join Riverbed at IP EXPO Europe, London
IP EXPO Europe is Europe’s number one enterprise IT event, and it’s coming to London on the 4th & 5th of October.
Riverbed will be there, setting up home on Stand FF12 where you’ll be able to get up close to our SD-WAN solution SteelConnect, find out how you can effectively manage your users’ digital experience with SteelCentral Aternity, as well as learn about our new Wi-Fi capabilities with Xirrus.
Besides our live solution demos, we’ll be hosting a couple of sessions with our resident experts to help you navigate your digital journeys better.
Day One, 4 October: Simplify Your Cloud Connectivity with Paul Griffiths, Riverbed Senior Director, Advanced Technology Group
Nimble Nimbus or Clumsy Cumulus? Which would you choose if you are moving applications to the cloud?
Acknowledging that the move to cloud is ever increasing, means coming to terms with the decisions that must be made by businesses and their IT teams as to what applications and services should be migrated, where they should be migrated to, and when they should be migrated.
The road to cloud migration can look daunting. The number of apps and their interactions can be bewildering. Matters can be exacerbated by shadow IT, and knowing where to start can be the hardest part.
How do you start? Like any project, planning ahead to minimize risk, tracking each stage, and then monitoring afterwards to validate success and on-going productivity, should be top of the agenda. Also like any project, part of the planning is to equip the team with the relevant tools to prepare, audit and visualize the infrastructure. Knowing what to move and when to move it, at the same time as keeping the business running, is key. If you can’t see it, how do you know it’s safe to move it?
How do you know you have got there? What does success look like? It is just as important to prove to the business and shareholders, as it is to ensure the users of the now cloud-hosted applications are as productive as they always were, it not even more so.
Join Paul to find out how Riverbed can provide you with products and services designed to connect users with their applications, simply and efficiently.
Day Two, 5 October: Continuous Performance Delivery: Find and Fix the Things That Matter with Nicolas Leszczynski, Systems Engineer
Performance issues are compounded by the complex infrastructures that IT teams must contend with to deliver applications.
Making matters more difficult are today’s hybrid enterprises, where data and resources are often outside of a troubleshooter’s immediate control. The question of whether a problem is related to the network or the application itself can now extend to a SaaS, cloud, Internet, or other third-party provider’s environment.
Over the past few decades performance analysis tools used along the application lifecycle evolved dramatically from simplistic system monitoring, to continually adding capabilities such as code instrumentation, multi-tier transaction tracing, and end-user experience monitoring. Although the feature lists of such tools continue to grow, organizations continue to have major performance issues, which they’re unable to pinpoint and resolve even after months of testing efforts.
The quality of the data provided is the number one reason problems go unsolved. All tools claim to collect metrics about the environment, but how this data is captured, stored, and displayed dictates its troubleshooting value.
Even with high-quality data, if you don’t ask the right questions, you may not realize the severity of an issue.
Nicolas shares a performance management philosophy to maximize your application optimization efforts by defeating these two main flaws.
