Riverbed Launches New Open-Forum Community To Serve NetOps, SecOps and IT Practitioners


Riverbed announced that it launched Riverbed Community, where customers, colleagues and peers come to connect to share their insights on visibility, performance and security of networks, applications and end users, and current issues affecting the IT industry, as well as shared experiences with Riverbed products and solutions. Grounded in the collaborative spirit of technology professionals and accessible to all, Riverbed Community is built on open dialogue in which tech professionals can ask and answer questions, share insights and learn from each other.

Riverbed Community is a multimedia environment in which Riverbed employees, partners, community members, and industry influencers, known as Riverbed Ambassadors, can create content, share videos, podcasts, and blog posts, and engage in technical discussions. The goal is to elevate the expertise of everyone in the community, share ideas and develop relationships that persist outside of the data centre. The community is open to all and there are no prerequisites to join.
