Riverbed Technology introduced a single appliance with integrated application aware network performance management (aaNPM) and application performance management (APM) capabilities.
The solution, which represents a milestone in the integration of the Riverbed Cascade and OPNET product families, provides end-to-end performance management from deep dive packet and network analysis through application transactions and end user experience (EUE). The goal is to ensure consistent and reliable application performance as enterprises virtualize their data centers, consolidate branch offices, and support more mobile end users.
The new AppResponse Xpert 6000 appliance is targeted at high-performance application infrastructures. It provides the storage and high-speed analysis needed to keep up with higher speed networks and to retain packet data longer. It processes and writes to disk at up to 2x10Gbps line rates and provides 48TB of packet storage, expandable to 264TB.
Riverbed is also introducing a Shark module for AppResponse Xpert, thereby integrating application transaction analysis and deep network intelligence in a single view.
- Riverbed completed its acquisition of OPNET Technologies in December 2012.
