Riverbed Now Compatible With Gigamon Traffic Visibility Tool
Riverbed Technology has struck a deal with traffic visibility solutions pioneer Gigamon that will make solving network problems much easier.
The partnership centres on time stamping – which in practical terms means it’s going to slash the time administrators will need to spend troubleshooting or fine-tuning, as it will give them much increased accuracy around spotting where any issues are occurring.
It will also mean it’s going to reduce mean time to resolution for any glitches or unplanned downtime – especially around time-sensitive and/or high-frequency transactions.
In product terms, the agreement – which extends an already existing relationship between the two technology innovators – covers Riverbed Cascade Shark, a key element in the Riverbed Performance Management product family, which has been worked on to be fully compatible with the Gigamon GigaVUE H Series.
“The solutions provided by Riverbed and Gigamon enhance joint customers’ network and application performance monitoring capabilities,” points out Dimitri Vlachos, VP marketing and products for WAN optimisation specialist Riverbed, while director of strategic alliances at Gigamon Tara Reeve sees the deal as offering network managers “enhanced efficiency and a quick, precise solution” for latency analysis.
