NET-A-PORTER GROUP selects Riverbed to optimize websites

THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP, a luxury fashion company, has selected Riverbed for optimizing the performance of SaaS applications and websites.

Riverbed will supply its SteelCentral solutions, including SteelCentral AppResponse, SteelCentral Transaction Analyzer, and SteelCentral Packet Analyzer to deliver better experience for luxury fashion customers.

The fashion group will use SteelCentral solutions to gain central view of its network traffic, enabling the technology team to detect, analyze, and resolve any performance related issues. Riverbed’s solutions will also address previous gaps on the physical network and protocol aspects.
THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP operates a hybrid IT infrastructure for product and order management, and warehouse logistics all deployed in multiple data centers, and accessed by staff from various locations.

The Group aims to integrate the platform into the existing infrastructure to ensure that technology team members — from the CTO to system engineers – can access to the data.

“We needed a solution to replace our current processes, provide us with insightful instrumentation, and increase collaboration across teams so that when network performance issues arise, they can be resolved faster than ever,” said Simon Fotakis, global network operations manager at THE NET-A-PORTER GROUP.
