Riverbed launches new release of SteelCentral
Riverbed Technology has announced the latest enhancements to the SteelCentral platform. SteelCentral is a comprehensive and integrated performance management solution that provides centralised visibility and insight to ensure optimal performance of enterprise applications while maximising IT efficiency and productivity. Whether the challenge is monitoring performance broadly across all applications, networks and infrastructure, or delving deep into mission critical application code, SteelCentral is the only end-to-end solution that combines user experience, application, infrastructure, and network monitoring for a holistic view of application performance.
“Today, SteelCentral knocks down all the barriers between domain siloes and makes collaborating to deliver great app performance easy – eliminating the finger-pointing, and accelerating problem resolution. This allows IT to refocus its efforts on attacking the strategic goals of the business,” said SVP, general manager of SteelCentral at Riverbed Mike Sargent. “Leading enterprises are adopting SteelCentral as the backbone of their app performance ‘Command Centres’ – it is clear to them that without such a powerful blended, operational view of performance, their ‘war rooms’ simply cannot achieve the level of app performance they need from today’s hybrid IT environments.”
These new enhancements to SteelCentral bring major advances in collaborative troubleshooting capabilities. While new features are being released in key components of the platform – including enhancements in Portal, AppInternals, AppResponse, NetAuditor, NetShark, NetPlanner and NetSensor – they support a common theme of improved platform integration while enhancing several powerful capabilities, including expanded network and application visibility; superior end-to-end application transaction monitoring; and more cost-effective Web application and WAN-optimisation monitoring.
