Netuitive Announces Amazon EC2 Integration For Hybrid Cloud Performance Management
Integration Bridges Netuitive Behavior Learning Technology With Amazon EC2 Services
Reston, VA – August 30, 2010 –Netuitive, Inc., the leading provider of self-learning performance management software, today announced it has completed an integration with Amazon EC2 (Elastic Cloud Computing) Services.
Amazon EC2 is a central part of Amazon.com's public cloud computing platform. It is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. The “Elastic” nature of the service allows their customers to instantly scale to meet spikes in traffic or demand.
Organizations looking to take advantage of cloud-based server capacity, can now leverage the flexibility of Netuitive’s end-to-end performance management to monitor Amazon’s cloud-based resources. The new Netuitive integration enables large enterprises to monitor their applications on Amazon EC2 or as a hybrid service extending from their internal infrastructure to the Amazon cloud environment.
Recently categorized as “transformational” by a leading IT research firm, Behavior Learning technology, which is at the core of Netuitive’s software, is rapidly emerging as an important capability in addressing performance and visibility issues connected with virtualization management and the adoption of private cloud infrastructure services.
Netuitive’s self-learning performance management software excels in virtualized environments by using advanced statistical analysis and predictive analytics to automate the management of private cloud environments. In contrast to competitive offerings, Netuitive’s advanced approach opens the door for organizations to have more confidence in moving higher priority applications into the cloud.
“Cloud and virtualization requires a new breed of performance management tools,” said Bojan Simic, Principal Analyst, TRAC Research. “There needs to be automated monitoring tools that can adjust themselves as quickly as the changes in the environment that they are monitoring. They need to be able to monitor across virtualized infrastructures, at off-premises burstable servers or for an internal private environment – or a combination. Netuitive is one of the few companies that have the analytics to make this possible. Their integration with Amazon EC2 is an exciting next step in the cloud management evolution.”
The Amazon integration leverages Netuitive’s proven model for monitoring the health and workload of virtualized servers. This model leverages existing monitoring data sources to collect real-time metrics such as resource consumption (disk, memory, CPU) and activity (disk, I/O, etc.). The sources of this data in traditional IT environments are monitoring tools from vendors such as BMC, HP, CA, IBM and Microsoft. By extending Netuitive’s monitoring analytics and service dashboard to Amazon EC2 services, Netuitive can now offer customers the ability to seamlessly incorporate public, cloud-based servers into their private cloud solutions.
“Our customers are expressing interest in adding public cloud resources, such as Amazon EC2, as a simple extension of their IT infrastructure and private cloud solutions,” said Nicola Sanna, president and CEO of Netuitive. “Our self-learning performance management software, which replaces human guesswork with automated statistical analysis and predictive analytics that excel in managing virtualized environments, is where the puck is headed for managing private and hybrid cloud solutions.”
Netuitive will be demonstrating the integration at VMworld (booth #1430) and it will be available this fall for new and existing customers.
