School Maximises Learning With Riverbed SteelCentral Deployment
Riverbed Technology, the leader in application performance infrastructure, has announced that The Pennington School is using Riverbed SteelCentral NetExpress to support its technology-based educational environment.
Featuring a mix of on-premise and cloud-based applications and services, the school hosts a hybrid IT environment that poses a number of challenges for gaining visibility into application and network performance across vendors.
Riverbed's SteelCentral NetExpress is an all-in-one appliance for network performance management that combines packet capture and flow data collection with analytics, dependency mapping and reporting.
This technology enables The Pennington School IT team to identify and resolve any performance problems across applications, networks and infrastructure before they impact upon students' performance and affect learning.
According to The Pennington School's director of technology Kenneth Coakley, the IT department has a responsibility for ensuring a flawless network that can support a number of devices used simultaneously by 485 students and faculty members.
Commenting on the school's need for Riverbed's technology, Mr Coakley stated that the IT team required an in-house tool that could ensure the network remained efficient and flexible for ease of proactive updating.
He continued: "With Riverbed SteelCentral NetExpress, we have a solution that allows us to isolate, track down and pinpoint where we need to focus. With Riverbed, we can take a scalpel vs. a sledge hammer approach to troubleshooting network performance issues and resolving issues in minutes that previously required hours and sometimes days.”
