"Users expect and businesses rely on network operations teams to ensure
optimal performance for critical applications - otherwise, employees
can't work, product developers miss deadlines, sales can't sell and
customers don't buy," said Nik Koutsoukos, Senior Director Product
Marketing, SteelCentral. "Effectively managing network performance in
today's globally complex networks - that include data centers, public
and private clouds and virtualized environments - requires an integrated
view that gives all relevant teams visibility into and control over
network and application performance. This enables organizations to
deliver applications in whatever way is most effective without regard to
technical constraints, network limitations, IT complexity or user
location or device. We call this location-independent computing, and
only Riverbed can deliver true end-to-end visibility and solve latency
and bandwidth issues - all required ingredients for delivering

"With AppResponse we can now see what's going on inside Web apps and Web
services," said Thomas Thomassen, server administrator for Hemit, a

troubleshoot incidents related to performance and hang."

analysis of information empowering collaboration between teams with
easy waysto share data and identify trends faster.
Geographic end-user experience views. Employees and customers
access web apps from all over the world, on all sorts of devices and
network types. AppResponse 9.0 shows performance at a glance across
the globe - by location, browser, device and platform type - so IT can
focus triage efforts on the most critically affected users.
IPv6 support. For organizations starting to leverage IPv6 for
external connectivity, AppResponse 9.0 provides visibility into
IPv6-enabled application performance, packets and response time so IT
can monitor IPv6-enabled applications the same as IPv4 apps.
New in SteelCentral NetProfiler 10.6:
SteelCentral Dashboard integration. SteelCentral Dashboards
provide teams across the IT organization with an integrated view of
the complete picture - application code, infrastructure performance,
network issues - but also enables them to drill down into
domain-specific tools for additional detail. SteelCentral NetProfiler
has been integrated with SteelCentral Dashboards to provide
network-specific details such as Top Interface and Top Talker
information, with seamless, contextual drill down.
Dashboard templates. Similar to AppResponse Quick Views,
NetProfiler dashboard templates simplify setup to deliver baseline
visibility so that different teams can be on the same page and share
common views right away.
