Netuitive Joins NetApp Alliance Partner Program

Predictive Analytics Platform Provides Unified View for Optimum Application Performance Management in the Cloud

RESTON, Va. — September 6, 2011– Netuitive, the leading provider of predictive analytics software for IT, today announced its membership in the NetApp Alliance Partner Program as a Cloud Management Partner.

Netuitive is collaborating with NetApp to provide enterprise customers with an industry-leading predictive analytics platform to help improve visibility and insight into their critical applications by automatically detecting anomalies and preventing cascading failures.

Leveraging an integration to NetApp OnCommand with Performance Advisor, Netuitive’s predictive analytics software, powered by its patented Behavior Learning EngineTM, simultaneously analyzes and correlates real-time performance data on NetApp appliances and volumes.

Enterprise Customer Benefits
• Automate mundane performance management tasks with Behavior Learning technology
• Optimize capacity planning with trended resource utilization
• Automate service performance problem root-cause with additional monitoring data sources
• Leverage automated correlation discovery to isolate performance bottlenecks
• Receive proactive alerts before a cascading failure leads to an outage
• Enable SLAs and address performance problems before end users are impacted
• Predictive (proactive) analytics proven to scale to enterprise-class private clouds  

These benefits become more evident as Netuitive’s predictive analytics are applied to additional data sources in physical, virtual, and applications infrastructure, including end-user experience and business metrics for applications – to deliver an end-to-end management capability.  Netuitive has integrations with all of the leading monitoring solutions for each of these domains including VMware, CA, IBM, HP, BMC, Microsoft, Compuware, and others. Netuitive collects data from the third-party monitoring tools and delivers its analytics results into the tools provided by the same vendors for a seamless integration and minimal impact on the systems management architecture and operational processes.

Netuitive reduces manual, rules-based approaches with advanced mathematics and predictive analytics that automatically correlates and self-learns the operational behavior of systems and applications across an entire IT environment. By taking this holistic approach, it provides a unified view across platforms and vendors, and because its learning is adaptive, it excels in dynamic, virtualized environments.

Netuitive’s predictive analytics solution has proven to scale as Netuitive’s customers include eight of the world’s 10 largest banks and several global telecommunications firms. They rely on Netuitive to predict degradations and avoid outages for their most critical applications.  One leading global bank uses NetApp and Netuitive in a virtual data center deployment with over 40,000 virtual machines and 2 petabytes of NetApp storage—all while automatically collecting and analyzing millions of performance metrics in real time.

“Storage performance is directly linked to application infrastructure performance representing one of the most important and challenging aspects of enterprise IT,” said Nicola Sanna, CEO of Netuitive.  “As an industry leader, NetApp serves as the foundational storage platform for some of the world’s largest enterprises.  Netuitive is central to effectively monitoring storage performance while analyzing and correlating all of the components supporting the performance of critical applications and related infrastructure.”

NetApp collaborates with leading automation and analytic software vendors like Netuitive to provide seamless integration with NetApp® open-management APIs. This integration provides end-to-end cloud management, including full-stack orchestration, self-service portals, metering, and reporting.
