In August 2012, Riverbed announced its collaboration with partner VMware to solve performance monitoring visibility challenges arising out of the ongoing evolution of virtual network technologies and architectures within virtual data center (VDC) environments. Specifically, Riverbed and VMware have developed IPFIX flow record templates that reveal valuable insights into data and session flows occurring within virtual networks that use VXLAN. By adding VXLAN support to its Cascade family of solutions, Riverbed will take a market-leading role in applying application-aware network performance management to software-defined networks (SDN), bringing together performance views spanning intra-hypervisor, virtual network, and physical network into a single pane of glass.
