FREMONT, CA: To determine the actual issues of IT department and to avoid the blame game among different sections of an organization, Riverbed, provider of application performance infrastructure, has introduced the SteelCentral platform, reports Mike Vizard for IT Business Edge.

The SteelCentral Platform, a single view of Application Performance that takes the war out of the war room, delivers visibility and analytics to IT organizations into both applications and the IT infrastructure they depend on through a common terminal. It is an end-to-end solution that combines user experience, infrastructure, application and network monitoring for a holistic view of application performance. It helps in maximizing efficiency, productivity and performance.

“SteelCentral essentially enables a new class of “super administrators” to emerge-ones capable of more holistically addressing IT problems because they correlate issues more quickly than organizations that rely on teams of IT professionals to manage various silos of IT technologies,” says Nik Koutsoukos, VP of Product Marketing at Riverbed.

By using the newly launched platform, IT administrators can resolve issues without waiting for a confirmation from the storage, networking, servers and other teams that the issue does not fall under them. “It catches issues before they start, and helps in resolving them before they become a real problem,” states the company.

The key features of the SteelCentral platform are end user monitoring, network monitoring, deep component analytics, application layer analytics, application mapping and transaction tracing. In addition, it offers Cross-function Collaboration, which helps in dealing with problems more quickly and focuses on strategic initiatives rather than performance firefighting; One Performance Management platform, which maximizes all phases of application performance with a wide-ranging, detailed view of end user, applications, network and infrastructure; and helps in Optimizing Application environment to ensure ongoing performance.
