Modern, hybrid networks are more complex than ever. Explosive growth in remote work, cloud migration, and SaaS adoption have expanded the network and its threat plane. Today, users are everywhere, and the network has stretched to meet them. Some of it you control; some you don’t. But all of it affects the experience of your employees, customers, and partners. Poor performance, compromised security, and lack of visibility to solve the simplest of end-user issues can severely impact team productivity, customer loyalty and brand value. Join Bob Agnes and Jim Hansen as they bring to focus Riverbed’s product direction and plans that will help IT organizations do their jobs more effectively, more quickly resolve complex network issues, and achieve actionable insights from the Riverbed portfolio of products. He’ll be joined by Tyler Bryson, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President of Global Partner Solutions, to discuss how Microsoft has joined forces with Riverbed to deliver on this vision and drive transformative future outcomes.

RIVERBED SOLUTION ROADMAP: VISIBILITY

David Winikoff, Vice President Product Management, Riverbed

View More Details

We live in a world where change is happening at breakneck speeds. We are multitasking and diving into details real-time. When everything is working, disasters are averted throughout the day and work is achieved. What happens when everything isn’t working? Who is impacted? Are your customers experiencing delays that could impact satisfaction? The purpose of visibility is to understand how many people are experiencing a performance problem and the extent to which they’re impacted. While many tools are limited, Riverbed offers the depth and breadth to find the root cause of performance issues and return to optimal working order. Join Riverbed’s David Winikoff for an overview of capabilities across the network performance management portfolio that will help you get the most value from your on-premise, IaaS cloud, and SaaS application investments. This session will cover:

·     Capturing, storing, and analyzing packet-level communications from data center, virtualized, and cloud-based environments

·     Understanding your total network environment based on flow records from network and cloud-based sources

·     Interpreting the status and health of your network infrastructure, as reported by the network devices themselves

·     Creating customized views of network and application performance based on all the data sources that Riverbed is monitoring at high granularity, without sampling

Product lines covered in this session include AppResponse, NetProfiler, NetIM and Portal.

11:30 – 12:00 PM

Bandwidths are increasing, but are SLAs improving as a result? Your application traffic may transport 30 to 100 msec from some sites to others, resulting in reduced performance for your employees. But there’s good news: application and latency optimization can be coupled with SDWAN to provide the flexibility—and performance—you want. Join Riverbed’s Rich Faris for an overview of recently added and soon-to-be available capabilities across the SDWAN/SASE application acceleration and network optimization parts of the Riverbed portfolio. In this session, Rich will highlight key new features and share the near-term roadmap that will help you get the most value from on-premises, IaaS cloud, and SaaS application investments, for users working from anywhere. Learn about:  

·     SteelConnect EX SDWAN coupled with SteelHead WANOP for a 1+1=3 experience

·     New product capabilities to extract more value from your existing investment through optimization of encrypted applications

·     Better methods to optimize storage traffic

 Product lines covered in this session include SteelConnect, SteelHead, SaaS Accelerator, Cloud Accelerator, and Client Accelerator.
