Riverbed to Deliver Unified Observability to Customers

Riverbed unveiled a broad strategy to bring industry-leading unified observability to customers worldwide and accelerate growth by expanding its unified observability portfolio, which will unify data, insights, and actions.

The company is also launching a new brand identity, including the introduction of Alluvio by Riverbed (for Unified Observability), reflecting the evolution of the company and technology, according to the vendor.

“This marks an exciting new chapter for Riverbed,” said Dan Smoot, Riverbed president and CEO. “We’re capitalizing on our trusted brand, the dynamic growth, and market momentum for our visibility solutions to position Riverbed as a dominant leader in the rapidly growing observability market. Through our vision to deliver a highly innovative, differentiated SaaS-based Unified Observability portfolio, we will meet an urgent customer need and disrupt the market. We are focused on helping our customers transform massive amounts of data into actionable insights, so they can drive enterprise performance and deliver exceptional digital experiences.”

Riverbed has invested and focused the company’s R&D efforts in the last year to develop technology and a unique approach to unified observability that is comprehensive, unified, and easy-to-operate.

Alluvio by Riverbed, the company’s Unified Observability software portfolio, is being designed to provide IT with a unified view to see through massive complexity, and transform data into actionable insights across the entire digital ecosystem and enable automated self-healing.

This will enable organizations to provide seamless digital experiences that drive enterprise performance for both the employee experience (EX) and customer experience (CX).

The Alluvio by Riverbed portfolio includes Riverbed’s visibility tools for network performance management (NPM), IT Infrastructure Monitoring (ITIM), and Digital Experience Management (DEM), which encompasses application performance management (APM) and end user experience monitoring (EUEM), that are available today and used by thousands of organizations across the world.

Riverbed’s vision of the Alluvio unified observability portfolio is to capture every packet, flow, and end user transaction across multi-cloud and on-premises networks, applications, and user systems at full fidelity; and then apply intelligence through machine learning and artificial intelligence, and help IT quickly identify and resolve digital service quality issues so organizations can maintain productivity and deliver on user experience expectations.

The launch of Riverbed’s new brand identity and product strategy comes nine months after the Company reunited with Aternity—which had been operating independently—to capitalize on the tremendous growth opportunities around unified visibility and observability.

Collectively, the companies’ intense focus on NPM, DEM, actionable insights and acceleration have delivered leading technology solutions that position Riverbed today to fully capitalize in both the Unified Observability and Acceleration markets, meeting users’ unrelenting expectations for excellent digital experiences.
