Everyone knows that effective network management practices start with establishing a full foundational understanding of the network. But simply monitoring individual elements can only get you so far. Historically, going the next step requires manually building and maintaining the knowledge of how those disparate elements are connected and how they interact with one another to deliver applications and communications. In other words, you need to understand network-level dependencies.

The Riverbed Optimization System (RiOS™) is the software that powers Riverbed’s unique award-winning line of Steelhead™ application acceleration appliances and Steelhead Mobile client software. RiOS is based on patented technologies that solve a range of problems affecting wide area networks (WANs) and application performance.
Because WAN optimization sits at the intersection of applications, networking, and storage, its potential benefits goes well beyond what enterprises had realized in the past. In fact, WAN optimization has now evolved into an architectural design element that shapes the performance lifecycle of IT.
This video from Enterprise Strategy Group discusses findings of research they did with HP customers on how backup, recovery, and archiving solutions from HP, including the HP StoreOnce Backup product family, have helped them save time and money.
There are few concerns more critical to the success of an enterprise than the performance of its applications. Business applications are the engines that keep the business moving, representing both the touch points for customers as well as the means of interaction among employees. If the performance of critical applications is restricted in any way, the business can suffer irreparable damages.
The Riverbed solution is one that exhibited strong capabilities across a broad number of our measured categories, without clearly dominating anything in particular. The solution is still going through integration between the Cascade and OPNET portfolios, and thus did not achieve full potential scores in some regards, but the breadth of design and capabilities is now among the very best in the ANPM sector.
Any strategy for managing the network infrastructure must include a direct understanding of how well the network is playing its role in application and service delivery. This is the realm of Application-aware Network Performance Management (ANPM), and it is essential to understand the primary requirements for such systems in order to adequately evaluate and select tools and products that will best meet the need. This paper reviews the challenges that ANPM solutions are best fit to address, which qualities and capabilities are of most importance, and how one alternative, Riverbed’s Cascade Solution, stacks up.
ESG was engaged by Riverbed to develop a detailed EVV analysis designed to help IT organizations determine the relative costs and benefits of deploying Riverbed Cascade compared with a typical performance management solution.
