Netuitive Introduces "Total Environment Monitoring" for Virtual Infrastructures

Reston, VA – Netuitive, provider of the industry’s first self-learning performance management software, today released the newest edition of its award-winning Netuitive SI product. This version includes powerful new features giving customers ‘total environment monitoring’ for virtual infrastructures and builds on the product’s ability to help customers automatically monitor and analyze any application, within any environment, from a single user console. As part of this release the company integrated its award-winning virtualization monitoring solution into the core Netuitive SI platform.

The new version of Netuitive SI is a direct result of customer feedback and demand for new virtualization monitoring capabilities around the datastore, clusters, resource pools, virtual machines and hosted applications as a ‘total environment’ from a single console.

“Even though the state of the art continues to progress for advanced monitoring solutions, we are still seeing IT teams trying to stretch traditional, silo monitoring approaches for their virtualized environments. Most silo tools do not deliver the adaptive, preventative features required to meet today’s demand for proactively assuring IT services, and by definition they cannot span technologies to deliver the aggregate viewpoint required for supporting complex virtualized infrastructures,” said Jim Frey, research director, Enterprise Management Associates. “Advanced, holistic monitoring solutions, such as this latest release of Netuitive SI, represent the answer by delivering cross-domain operational intelligence.”

Netuitive SI is the only self-learning solution that monitors the entire virtual infrastructure end-to-end. For the first time, customers are able to seamlessly drill down to root-causes from the cluster, to the host server, to the VM, and on through the application without requiring any manual configuration of scripts, rules, thresholds. Netuitive SI also allows customers to leverage monitoring metrics from leading tools such as Microsoft Operations Manager, HP Operations, IBM Tivoli, BMC Patrol, and NetIQ AppManager.

‘Next Generation’ Netuitive SI Key features include:
· Expanded virtualization monitoring capabilities via a brand new set of monitoring metrics for the resource pool and data store.
· New support for clusters: The only self-learning analysis software for monitoring and analyzing clusters as a single entity; supports failover and load balancing
· Total Health Index representing the correlated performance of the overall virtual infrastructure – including resource pool, clusters, hosts and VMs.
· ‘Three click’ drill down capability: Seamless drill-down from the cluster to host to VM to application; automates and streamlines business administrative tasks; increases scalability

“Amidst all the uncertainty confronting business and IT in today's economic climate, one thing remains certain: Enterprise IT has realized the value of automation and self-learning technologies,” said Nicola Sanna, president and CEO of Netuitive. “This idea is at the core of Netutive’s business and is underscored by our 250-plus customers who are continuing to invest in our technology, despite today’s headlines.”

Netuitive SI has earned recognition by some of the industry’s most influential press, analysts and thought leaders, such as Gartner, the451, Red Herring, SIIA and others. The company has also been successful in executing on its strategic push into the virtualization arena with Netuitive SI for VMware, which was a Best of VMworld Award winner.
