Riverbed acquires Aternity

Riverbed has splashed an unspecified quantity of cash to acquire an outfit called Aternity, which specialises in “end-user experience and application performance monitoring solutions.”

Riverbed reckons being able to understand the end-user experience is good news for its customers, who need to understand what life is like for users in addition to the feed of network-centric data Riverbed has traditionally provided.

Aternity is privately-held and already manages 1.7 million devices.

Riverbed plans to bake Aternity's technology into its SteelCentral performance monitoring product line. ®
