Overview:

Business Challenge

Keeping Up with the Network

  • Expensive and slow to manually collect and document the infrastructure in a multi-vendor environment
  • Hard to keep up-to-date with constant network changes
Managing Complex Networks
  • Understanding the relationships between infrastructure elements
  • Inadequate visibility into logical and virtual overlays
Using Point Solutions
  • Disjointed, vendor-specific methods lead to knowledge gaps
  • Lack of integrated reporting leads to inefficient manual reports

The Riverbed Solution

The speed and reliability of the interaction between end users and an application requires a complete view of the applications from an architecture that looks across all critical parts of the application delivery chain. Understanding the network infrastructure from applications perspective requires a network architecture that provides the performance and availability of the underlying IT infrastructure and network contributing to the performance of the application.

Riverbed SteelCentral NetCollector acts as the central topology, traffic, configuration data repository and event integration engine for Riverbed’s SteelCentral Network Planning & Configuration Management (NPCM) suite.

In addition to being a data repository, SteelCentral NetCollector is the mediator for the Riverbed SteelCentral solution suite providing data at multiple timescales:

  • Scheduled and on-demand
  • Polling at regular intervals
  • Event triggered
  • Workflow-initiated in real-time
