Riverbed goes mobile with AppInternals 9.0

Zeus Kerravala | June 23, 2014
In 2012, Riverbed acquired OPNET for a cool billion to complement the network performance management (NPM) suite it inherited when it purchased Mazu. The product formerly known as OPNET, AppInternals Xpert was rebranded to SteelCentral AppInternals, and this week the company released version 9.0 of the suite.

Recently, Riverbed has been evangelizing the vision of "location independent computing" (LIC). The concept of LIC is something I agree with -- computing isn't just in the cloud or in a data center, it's everywhere. The key is to use the right compute resources in the right location to complete whatever task at that moment in time. However, leveraging LIC means businesses have to deal with traditional applications as well as cloud and mobile. Riverbed's AppInternals, combined with the company's NPM platform, should give IT departments the necessary visibility and data required to manage this ever-changing application environment.
