Riverbed Delivers Dramatic Improvements in Cloud Performance Visibility

Grazed from Riverbed

Riverbed announced the latest release of its Digital Experience Management (DEM) solution Riverbed SteelCentral, with advancements that dramatically improve the performance of cloud applications. The new release fundamentally changes performance management for cloud architectures with greater visibility of cloud native apps and into cloud-based networks-through the introduction of new Application Performance Management (APM) and Network Performance Management (NPM) capabilities. Today's announcement further strengthens the industry's most comprehensive DEM solution, which unifies device-based end user experience, application, and network monitoring to provide the business with a holistic view to truly measure and manage the digital experience.

Cloud adoption is enabling massive business transformation and tremendous growth for today's digital business, but it also creates huge visibility gaps and span of control challenges for organizations. While hybrid architectures are a reality for most modern enterprises and cloud is now considered an extension of the enterprise infrastructure, the majority of performance management tools available in the market are incapable of providing unified and user-centric visibility for hybrid cloud environments and the user's digital experience. In the 2018 State of Cloud Monitoring Survey recently conducted by Riverbed, IT network and cloud business decision makers shared their difficulties with 92% of participants stating they faced challenges with performance management in their cloud environment, and 60% of participants stated that their end users experienced cloud performance issues first before companies knew about them.

The report, "Public Cloud Comes of Age: Application Performance Management (APM) Strategies & Products for Production-Ready Cloud Ecosystems," noted several challenges enterprises are currently facing in migrating to and using cloud services and infrastructure. But since it's also a sponsored report, it also provided significant detail on application performance management and monitoring vendor New Relic, so expect a touch of bias...
