Better Network Visibility and Faster Network Troubleshooting in Hybrid Cloud Environments
Networks are mission-critical to business success
Digital businesses need secure, reliable networks more than ever before. But, with today’s hybrid cloud architectures, maintaining a high-performing and secure network requires a broad view across IT domains.
Point tools that use only SNMP polling, flow, or packet capture do not provide the breadth and depth needed to diagnose complex problems. Riverbed’s network performance monitoring (NPM) solution integrates these capabilities so that you gain an enterprise network view of performance in hybrid cloud environments. It also integrates with end-user experience and application performance monitoring so that you can understand the impact of network performance on critical business initiatives.
Remove network performance blind spots in the cloud
It’s difficult to see traffic flowing across cloud instances and challenging to put the entire traffic flow into context in hybrid environments. Since most companies use multiple cloud vendors and multiple cloud instances, knowing who is responsible for resolving issues can be a point of contention. Using Riverbed’s NPM solution, you remove performance blind spots so you can determine what’s causing your cloud problems, reduce latency in critical business initiatives, and identify the application and network issues that are driving cloud costs.
Real-time network troubleshooting in the context of your applications
In today’s digital era, it’s more critical than ever to rapidly identify and triage network performance problems to minimize downtime of your business-critical applications. Using Riverbed’s NPM solution you can analyze the full application stack from packets to pages in real time and pivot/drill down from flows to packet analysis in hybrid environments.
Proactively detect network problems, often before customers notice
With proactive alerting, network analytics, and real-time monitoring, you can clearly differentiate symptoms from root causes and improve the overall performance of your mission-critical network. Riverbed’s NPM solution helps you identify abnormal changes as soon as they occur using automated discovery and dependency mapping, real-time analytics and baselining, and a unified console for network and application performance monitoring. Unlike other NPM solutions, you can view all transactions at once to reveal patterns that are typically hidden by traditional charts that “average out” spikes.
Analyze historic trends and “what if” scenarios using network analytics
By visualizing performance trends across your network and applications, you can automatically diagnose network and application performance bottlenecks, validate network readiness by conducting “what if” analysis, and even understand the impact of WAN optimization prior to deployment.
The Riverbed solution gives us a solid foundation to confidently move to the cloud. At the same time, we’ve been able to reduce bandwidth costs significantly and employee complaints have all but dropped.
