Riverbed Cascade 8.4 network and application performance availability tool

Friday, 05 February, 2010



Riverbed has announced Cascade 8.4, the latest version of its network and application performance availability tool that integrates with the company’s Steelhead WAN optimisation appliances to provide companies with end-to-end optimisation, monitoring and proactive troubleshooting from one platform.

By automatically focusing on periods of actual user activity, Cascade measures the true speed a user can achieve when performing application transactions. The end-user metrics are gathered and sent to Cascade Profiler for analysis.

Cascade continuously tracks end-user performance metrics, learning the normal network and application behaviour and proactively alerting the network and application teams whenever end users are experiencing slow performance.

As part of the release, Riverbed has also launched Cascade Sensor-VE for the virtualised Riverbed Services Platform (RSP), allowing remote monitoring wherever Riverbed’s RSP platform is deployed.

Deployment with the RSP means that Sensor-VE is optimally located for measuring the end-user experience, providing an easy-to-manage solution that eliminates the need for additional hardware at the branch. Cascade Sensor-VE is an optional software-only component that enhances Cascade’s flow-based analytics, which operate across optimised and non-optimised branch offices.
