Thread regarding Riverbed Technology Inc. layoffs

Investments

(...)Alluvio by Riverbed, which reflects the company’s heavy focus and investment in unified observability over the past year. (source: CRN)

In my humble opinion, Alluvio is a failure. What is really going on with investments here? Does Riverbed know how to make a good investment anymore at all?

Portal was not unified npm. It was a poor attempt at keeping the various teams happy while duct taping a horrible solution together and ignoring what the market really wanted.

@4egk, we did. Remember Portal? The “hamburger slide” where npm, eue, apm, sd-wan, etc. all fed the same place? Different buyers, different needs, buyers charged with buying best of breed, not ok products that work well together. That’s why we split the company. Didn’t work then. Hard to believe the same play four years later is going to have different results.

Imagine if we had invested in unified visibility back when it was first pitched in ~2017.

Bruh, it’s called BS. Apollo doesn’t know jack sh-t about technology. This is a show for them.
