The buildup of cloud computing is coupled with a corresponding growth in server virtualization. Part of the driving force behind this growth is the fact that these virtual appliances in the cloud are saving companies money while boosting production. SevOne and its network performance management
solution are up there in the cloud and giving companies extra value.
There are many benefits to using the SevOne products
, which include vPAS (performance application solution). One of the perks garnering much attention is its ease of deployment. The PAS is also touted by SevOne as the industry’s fastest and most flexible data collection, monitoring, and reporting tool available today.
This solution can be up and running, monitoring your network and IT operations only minutes after deployment. The PAS comes in 5K, 10K, 20K, 40K, and 60K options. The 60K model can handle up to 60,000 network elements and is designed for Fortune corporations. The 5K appropriate for small and remote sites
Network performance management solutions vary as not all networks are created equal. There are a slew of factors that affect the network performance, including the big ones – latency, packet loss, throughput and retransmission. While network performance managers are beset with many tasks, their most crucial jobs include analyzing the forensics, mapping capacity, and testing loads.
SevOne’ virtual application
can assist network performance management by adding consistency to the process. The solution includes being able to manage networks from a remote location or from a branch office. Being able to monitor from anywhere is a crucial step toward consistency.
The network performance management solution from SevOne allows deployment and management through a virtual machine from remote locations. This means your managers will have the same degree of management capabilities from outside the office as they do from within.
The rapid deployment is possible because of SevOne’s PAS distribution as a single file, which is installed with a VMware centralized management application. The console-based menu gives network performance managers a convenient look into the system configuration and allows easy naming and addressing of the system.
Reporting and alerting is provided in a single web-based interface. This interface gives quick insight to the data that is collected by applications being used, both physical and virtual. This differs from traditional centralized operations monitoring, which occurs when traffic that is generated the monitoring system goes through multiple network connections.
This process can cause a loss of visibility of remote networks during a WAN outage, but the SevOne network performance management solution sidesteps that problem.
