Accelerating the Delivery of Microsoft Office 365

Today’s end users are accustomed to the high performance of locally provided services. When moving services to the cloud, data centers are no longer local, so the end user experience can suffer. A poor or congested Internet connection between the user and the cloud service will mean sluggish application delivery that puts a damper on user productivity and ultimately threatens application usage. Riverbed Technology has been addressing these performance issues for some time on private and cloud enterprise... Read More

Are Your Legacy Applications Suitable for the cloud? 3 Critical Evaluation Activities to Ensure Migration Success

Many enterprises are currently planning or are in the process of migrating their critical business applications to the cloud as the trend toward the hybrid enterprise continues to gather momentum. Even if a legacy application is deemed technically possible to migrate, without understanding the cost to the business and the performance ramifications for end users, the impact could be disastrous. Here are some factors that should influence cloud migration decisions for legacy applications. Read More

Getting Network Auditing and Configuration Figured Out

SteelHead Hybrid Networking

The Internet and the cloud are now a part of business-critical infrastructures. Enterprises are becoming a hybrid of on-premises and off-premises assets. To efficiently support the combined public and private resources, the network itself needs to go hybrid, combining the strengths of the highly reliable multiprotocol label switching (MPLS) with the ubiquity, price, and speed of the Internet. Riverbed’s SteelHead™ hybrid networking enables an excellent user experience for both your on-premises and... Read More

IT Evolution to a Hybrid Enterprise Drives the Need for Location-Independent Computing

As enterprise computing has evolved, businesses have been shifting to a "hybrid enterprise" where core applications and data can be located in private data centers and public clouds. The transition to a hybrid environment has created challenges in optimizing application performance because the primary compute location has shifted and become distributed. One of the challenges is that legacy deployment models dictated that there was a single, best computing location.  Read More

Hybrid Will Be the New Normal for Next Generation Enterprise WAN

Public cloud services and mobility are driving business needs where the Internet and Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) play an equally important role for enterprise connectivity. Network planners must establish a unified wide area network (WAN) with strong integration between these two networks to avoid application performance problems.  Read More

The Need for End-to-End Application Performance: Across Applications, Networks, Infrastructure & End Users

The realities of the modern IT landscape are daunting. Your business-critical applications are multi-platform, multi-tier, and span physical, virtual, and hybrid cloud environments. To reach your end user, application transactions traverse complex networks and infrastructure that are handling ever-increasing loads.

In light of this, never has it been more challenging to monitor the performance and availability of the business services that your employees and customers count on. This white... Read More

10 Reasons Why Developers Need Application Performance Monitoring

In today's business world, user expectations for application performance are incredibly high. This comes at a time when, from a developer's standpoint, challenges are constantly growing. In particular, developing business applications today is more complex than when a single application ran on dedicated hardware with its traffic running over a corporate backbone network.

Applications typically are comprised of multiple components, each running on different systems—virtualized, distributed,... Read More
