Riverbed Cascade Enables Boston College to Stay Ahead of Growing Network Complexity
Massachusetts, Boston College is one of the oldest Jesuit, Catholic universities in the United States. In recent years Boston College has experienced rapid growth in data center network complexity. This complexity was driven by the need to provide a high level of fault tolerance to new, multi-tiered applications that had large bandwidth requirements. Their challenge is to improve rapid growth in network traffic, increasing application complexity, limited network visibility and time-consuming troubleshooting process. They chose Riverbed Cascade appliance in the data center. Cascade provides benefits across several dimensions: reduced MTTR for network connectivity issues, increased network uptime, better network and application performance management and powerful search capabilities for network information.
