Riverbed promises you a unified solution, but what they deliver is actually 5 disjointed products with multiple UIs based on legacy architecture.
That's 5 deployments. 5 products to maintain. And a "single pane of glass" with limited drilldown capabilities. Not optimal.
ExtraHop's unified platform is a cohesive solution with one integrated UI. That means your path from question to insight is never more than a few clicks. The real-time streaming architecture is open and extensible, so you have plenty of flexibility plus unparalleled network visibility at a fraction of the cost.
There's a new and better way of getting visibility into what's happening with your network, your applications, and your infrastructure. With ExtraHop you get real-time payload analysis for 50+ protocols that can generate over 3,600 different metrics. Because ExtraHop is a cohesive solution, you can stop wasting time managing your tools and start optimizing your environment.
We're big believers in ITOA. The ExtraHop platform gives you the freedom to integrate and stream your data to third-party systems and non-proprietary data stores for correlation with other data sets.
Wire data is the foundation of any next-generation ITOA solution. The ExtraHop platform's ability to do full-stream reassembly and analyze payloads in motion sets us far apart from other NPM solutions like Riverbed and similar competitors. With the ExtraHop platform, you're also free to integrate and stream your data to third-party platforms, which is another capability you don't get with legacy solutions.
The simple setup of ExtraHop's real-time stream analytics platform means you're accessing your wire data faster—and seeing value sooner.
Deploying Riverbed requires professional services, and can take weeks or months to operationalize. It also requires more rack space, power, and training.
Riverbed's fragmented nature creates management hassles from day one. You end up managing a suite of products with different UIs and limited visibility.
Deployments often require a full-time consultant to maintain, and you have to wait for patches to gain access to new protocols. So much for optimization.

ExtraHop's willingness to fully implement a POC and provide a highly technical team to work with us to tackle an immediate production issue put them ahead of Riverbed. While ExtraHop was focused on helping us find the issue and get us performing well again, Riverbed was focused solely on the sale with little regard to the performance issue crippling us.
