Riverbed Technology, Inc. Launches Riverbed SteelCentral Portal

Riverbed Technology, Inc. launched Riverbed SteelCentral Portal, a software solution for managing application performance in hybrid IT environments. Only SteelCentral Portal provides the most comprehensive, end-to-end visibility, fundamentally changing the way teams work together to resolve application performance issues and ultimately improve business performance. SteelCentral Portal gives each stakeholder a customizable graphical dashboard with the most complete and relevant information. For each role, SteelCentral Portal provides all the needed information in a single screen, with the ability to drill down into specific performance information. With SteelCentral Portal, Riverbed blends performance data from its SteelCentral visibility and SteelHead optimization and control solutions. This holistic view gives customers a single source of truth for application performance by accelerating, troubleshooting, optimizing application data and traffic across the entire hybrid network, and even preventing outages in the future. SteelCentral Portal gives different domain teams a more holistic picture across the entire hybrid enterprise to identify potential problems more readily and keep people focused on strategic projects of business value rather than non-productive operational firefighting. SteelCentral Portal brings a new approach to problem-solving with a holistic operational view of the complete IT environment. SteelCentral Portal uniquely blends data from all relevant sources into a single, actionable source of truth for stakeholders, with easy to view graphical interfaces and application maps. These sources include Riverbed's visibility tools and solutions: SteelCentral AppInternals and AppResponse for application performance management data, and NetProfiler and NetSensor for network performance management data. SteelCentral Portal features include: Graphical application discovery; Data driven metric guidance; Efficient management reporting; Relevant stakeholder views; and Monitor optimized and non-optimized traffic with SteelHead integration. SteelCentral Portal takes an interactive, wizard-driven process to help IT teams discover and rapidly generate a dynamic service map. This reduces the time and effort needed to develop and implement a reporting framework and enables companies to quickly diagnose and remedy performance issues. SteelCentral Portal includes powerful, out of the box workflows that assist administrators to select the ‘best’ metrics based on available data. Administrators determine the information needed and SteelCentral Portal automatically curates different workflows based on available data sources. SteelCentral Portal gives a central source of truth for application performance and supporting infrastructure. Looking at the same triage data fosters better teamwork helping teams rapidly diagnose the issue's root cause. And non-technical stakeholders across the enterprise get the meaningful data that they want. SteelCentral Portal offers each stakeholder a role-based home page with custom and default dashboards tailored to the individual's needs and information prioritized for that user and role. With SteelHead appliances integrated with AppResponse or NetProfiler, IT teams can look across their network and view both non-optimized and optimized traffic. Regardless of whether the data resides in the data center, branch, or in the cloud, SteelCentral Portal users can drill down to understand which applications are optimized, how they're running, and what users are doing with each of them.

Carilion Clinic to Use Riverbed® SteelHead

Riverbed Technology announced that Carilion Clinic is using Riverbed® SteelHead™ to reduce the costs of application delivery while continuing to provide the high level of application performance needed to support fast-paced, need-it-now medical care. With SteelHead, Carilion Clinic was able to switch from high-cost fiber optic network circuits to less expensive circuits and still get the same or better application performance. This has saved nearly $1 million in IT operating costs annually — savings that can be directed toward additional patient care, community outreach, or any one of the non-profit’s many patient care programs.
