Bandwidth Management is the process of measuring and controlling the communications (traffic, packets) on a network link, to avoid filling the link to capacity or overfilling the link, which would result in network congestion and poor performance.
Find out how new applications and virtualized environments are driving the need for increased bandwidth and network scale in this new Report. Read how scalability is fuelling the need for 10GbE networks.
Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) works best for smaller centrally located user bases that share a core set of applications and file needs. As the world moves to the web and to the cloud, agencies are asking whether VDI is still a good fit for emerging mobility and BYOD needs. See this important infographic to learn more about the tradeoffs between VDI and emerging cloud technologies, and what you can do to take advantage of new solutions to drive improved mobile productivity across your entire organization.
Interconnecting three or more sites across a metro or wide area network has traditionally been accomplished via a hub and spoke network topology using Private Lines, Frame Relay or IP VPNs over the Internet. Ethernet services support hub and spoke topologies but also support an “any-to-any” network topology similar to a LAN but delivered over a wide area. This latter capability is unique to Ethernet services and cannot be cost effectively delivered using legacy point-to-point technologies such as Frame Relay or IP VPNs.
This paper discusses two options for multi-site connectivity using Ethernet services. One option discusses the classical hub and spoke topology using Ethernet Virtual Private Lines (EVPL). The other option discusses the “any-to-any” topology using an Ethernet Private LAN (EP-LAN) service. Through examples, the paper illustrates the capabilities of the two approaches and their benefits.
By managing latency well, your network can support cloud services, off-site backup and mirroring, and e-commerce – adding to your company’s bottom line and making your operations more efficient with happier users.
The modern applications delivery environment is distributed and dependent on data centers and network connectivity. Therefore, users are increasingly dependent on consistent network performance for day-to-day activities. Learn what pitfalls a business should avoid when implementing a network monitoring solution.
An IDC® study documented the business impact of WAN optimization solutions on enterprise organizations. Current trends and issues that were explored include evolving and shifting communication patterns, connection types, applications and bandwidth.

For remote office protection, you can reliably get a backup and a DR copy of data at any location without the need for onsite expertise. Read this paper to learn more about the next generation of deduplication.
In recent years Boston College has experienced rapid growth in data center network complexity. This complexity was driven by the need to provide a high level of fault tolerance to new, multi-tiered applications that had large bandwidth requirements. Read the case study to learn how the university deployed Riverbed Cascade™ to improve application performance management and increase network uptime.
Riverbed® Cascade Shark provides continuous, high-speed packet capture to ensure that packet-level information is available when needed for granular, real-time and post-event forensic analysis. Based on high-performance 1GbE and 10GbE capture cards, Cascade Shark is capable of sustained line-rate, multi-gigabit per second recording of network traffic.
This guide includes a demonstration on how you can accelerate troubleshooting, gain end-to-end visibility, and solve intermittent performance problems without having to recreate them; a detailed case study that shows how a large-scale federal government and defense consultant solved a months-long problem in just 15 minutes; and an on-demand webinar that introduces you to Cascade Shark and Cascade Pilot.
Riverbed Cascade is a new type of tool that incorporates traffic monitoring, packet capture and protocol analysis to provide an application-aware view of the network. Download this white paper from NetMedia to learn how Riverbed Cascade can help to solve your IT performance challenges.
Enterprises are rapidly adopting virtualization for dynamic service delivery and service management agility. IT challenges already exist in virtual environments and will only be exacerbated with the higher adoption of virtualization. The ability to proactively monitor traffic within these environments is critical for enabling predictable and reliable delivery of applications and for troubleshooting diverse IT infrastructures.
