Solution Overview

Arista and Riverbed Performance Management's joint monitoring, performance and visibility solutions provide comprehensive, end-to-end performance awareness and troubleshooting capabilities in any large scale data center environment with a path to future SDN and ultra-high speed networks not offered by any other combination of platforms.

Riverbed Performance Management appliances can be connected to existing SPAN or mirror ports on network firewalls, switches and routers while aggregation, timestamping, load-balancing and conditioning of traffic can be accomplished at up to 100Gbps wire-rate before it is delivered to the Riverbed Performance Management appliances using Arista's DANZ TAP Aggregation features, thus assuring tool performance and scaling.

Through a common set of views and metrics, Riverbed Performance Management products provide an enhanced cross-organization view of network and application performance that is made more efficient, scalable, and precise through integration with Arista Network's advanced monitoring and DANZ TAP Aggregation capabilities.

Visibility into any application and any virtualization or cloud environment is provided by flexible traffic selection and redirection to the Riverbed Performance Management advanced monitoring appliances through Arista Network's DANZ capability.  Baselines can be established for application performance behaviors that can drive both capacity and resource planning decisions as well as helping to troubleshoot impending service overloads and interruptions.  Cloud services can be scheduled and planned to re-allocate loads across virtualized infrastructure based on true application traffic demands, and customer satisfaction and end-user experience can be preserved.
