Open APIs facilitate programmability, interoperability, and intelligence across the Riverbed SteelScript Application Framework and partner ecosystem so that customers can automate the analysis and resolution of performance issues across their IT infrastructure and for their unique business needs. Riverbed Open APIs give developers access to metrics and configuration controls of Riverbed application performance infrastructure. Begin customizing and automating the analysis and resolution of performance issues across your IT infrastructure today. What are REST APIs? Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) allow software developers to write applications that communicate with other systems and services. APIs may expose data or metrics from the system or service, as well as configuration options and system status. REST APIs allow access via HTTP and usually use JSON or XML for data. It is a popular style for defining APIs because of its ease of use for both clients and servers.

Navigating between interfaces to find IT data takes too long. Your organization’s combination of IT systems is unique. You have a number of systems and software technologies, each with their own metrics. But when the business or IT leaders want to know what’s happening, operations teams must navigate from interface to interface to assemble a holistic view, like piecing together a 1000—piece jigsaw puzzle. With systems becoming more complex and IT teams pressed for time, you need a customized interface that can meet your organizations unique needs. You need to automate how your teams gather metrics. And you need to integrate with the workflows and processes that your organization uses to meet business objectives. Time and labor are the most precious IT resources. If you could streamline how operations teams gather the metrics they need, you save precious hours for more important work. Riverbed Open APIs give you the flexibility to pull metrics from Riverbed in the ways you need.

Riverbed SteelScript Web Application Framework

You know powerful data and metrics exist in your Riverbed infrastructure. Wouldn’t you love to view that data in a specific way, or share it with certain groups? Riverbed SteelScript Application Framework is the foundation for querying, processing, and visualizing Riverbed metrics on your terms. What is a web application framework? A web application framework is a code base of core functions used in any web application. The web application framework takes care of the basic web application functions so that developers can focus on their unique requirements and develop their web applications faster. Often a web application can be built with little or no experience. Django is an open source web application framework written in Python. The Django web application framework has integrations with several back—end databases and a large community of developers. Riverbed SteelScript Application Framework is based on Django and builds upon the Riverbed SteelScript for Python SDK.

Riverbed SteelScript For Custom Applications

You want to get the most out of your investment in Riverbed application performance infrastructure. With Riverbed SteelScript Web Application Framework, you build IT applications that query data from across your infrastructure — including Riverbed — and use that data how it makes sense for your business. Riverbed SteelScript Application Framework eliminates unnecessary programming hours and lets developers focus on building the unique, custom code for your company’s needs. How to build your own “single pane of glass” for your IT organization. Manually stitching together data and metrics from across your infrastructure and applications is painful. APIs make it possible to pull that data into a “single pane of glass”. But you need an application flexible enough to meet your custom requirements. Navigating between interfaces to find IT data takes too long. Your organization’s combination of IT systems is unique. You have a number of systems and software technologies, each with their own metrics.

A single source of truth for performance — how useful would a portal be that shows the links between business and app performance? Your single source of truth for application performance. Effectively managing application performance in today’s hybrid enterprise requires deep and broad visibility across complex networks and hosting environments. Enterprises often take a fragmented approach to managing applications. Riverbed SteelCentral Portal brings everything together in a single pane of glass, eliminating the war room approach to address performance issues that often take months to fix or never get fixed.

Rethink branch IT — Riverbed is revolutionizing the way organizations manage remote and branch office (ROBO) IT by delivering the only hyper converged solution designed with the unique challenges of edge IT in mind. Riverbed SteelFusion enables the “Hyper converged Edge”, simplifying the complexities that have become so costly to maintain in an increasingly distributed world of opportunity. What this brings is unprecedented levels of simplicity, agility, data security, and business continuity across your entire distributed enterprise.


When you add Riverbed SteelCentral to your SteelHead deployment you’ll get complete application visibility and optimization. Application visibility anywhere. Deep application intelligence and network visibility to see all applications, everywhere they run. Responsiveness and control. Rea time application visibility to ensure critical applications get Quality of Service (QoS) levels that are aligned with business objectives. Accelerate business. Deliver application acceleration anywhere while enhancing end-user experience and visibility to increase productivity levels, optimize resources and reduce TCO.

Continuously monitor them to get end to end visibility and end-user experience insights around the clock. Take control of application performance. Detecting and fixing problems on live applications has never been more challenging. Watch the Riverbed webinar series to examine and resolve common, yet elusive application performance problems that reveal themselves only when you look at them from the right vantage point. Riverbed SteelCentral NetSensor provides agentless infrastructure component monitoring to deliver a comprehensive picture of how your infrastructure is affecting network and application performance.


AutoVPN multi mesh VPN connectivity to ensure application delivery from Cloud to WAN to LAN over any network underlay (MPLS, Internet). Native cloud integration to seamlessly connect private and public clouds. Global, centralized policy management to ensure performance of applications regardless of their locations (in the data centers or in the Cloud). Single click, instant cloud connectivity and provisioning including Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure.

Cloud visibility with sharing of flow data in Riverbed SteelCentral reports, enabling IT to understand minute by minute consumption of applications; report application specific performance by network, site, and user; and make path and quality of service decisions quickly. Riverbed SteelConnect is also suitable for hybrid environments that host some applications in the public cloud and need to deliver them to a remote location. Riverbed announced Amazon AWS as the first supported provider, with Microsoft Azure compatibility to be added later this year.


Riverbed SteelFusion brings the simplicity, agility, and security of hyperconvergence to the edge of your network. Hyperconvergence has seen wide adoption in enterprise IT, its modular blocks of server, storage, and networking simplify administration and improve scalability in the data center.
