Riverbed releases new performance tools
Application performance solutions are designed to accelerate performance, improve management
Application performance experts Riverbed Technology, has announced new product capabilities, developer tools and a supporting community that are designed to allow IT professionals to customise and adapt their IT infrastructure to meet the demands of their business.
As developers and IT managers use this programmable infrastructure they create a performance platform that is highly flexible and is compatible with the needs of modern virtualised and software-defined IT architectures.
Riverbed's broad set of application performance solutions is designed to accelerate performance and improve management. The new programmable infrastructure capabilities extend the rich reporting and management interfaces available in Riverbed solutions and allow IT operators to create custom rules and views attuned to their organisation's needs. By doing so, organisations can solve challenges with better visibility and control through a custom IT portal, automated provisioning and management within a software-defined data centre, and intelligent closed-loop performance remediation.
"We encounter customers all the time whose needs are specific to their business and their infrastructure," said Philippe Elie, director, Business Operations EMEA at Riverbed. "Today, we are giving customers the ability to uniquely accelerate their business in a way that has never before been possible."
Core to these capabilities are new developer tools, called FlyScript, that enable integration and automation within the Riverbed performance platform, as well as with third-party tools and customers' proprietary software. In addition, Riverbed invites developers, programmers and operators to join Riverbed Splash, an online community where customers can learn more about using FlyScript to get better performance, control, and scale for their applications. Riverbed Splash also features best practices regarding configuring, deploying, and managing Riverbed products.
