Riverbed’s new features for WAN optimisation

Riverbed Technology has introduced enhanced features to streamline the visibility and reporting efforts of organisations deploying WAN optimisation. Since the completion of its acquisition of Mazu Networks in February 2009, Riverbed® has integrated the visibility and analysis capabilities of Cascade™ appliances into its WAN optimisation solutions. In the new version, Cascade 8.3, Riverbed will provide out-of-the box WAN optimisation intelligence, with an enhanced level of automation, ease-of-use, and consolidated enterprise visibility in one place.

Cascade ‘out-of-the-box’ analyses network traffic to provide information on performance, interactions of and dependencies between users, applications and networks. It will enable operators to gain insights about bottlenecks in the environment, reporting on both optimised and non-optimised traffic.
