Hyperic Named As Top Company to Watch in 2009 by Linux Magazine
Hyperic Inc., the leading provider of web application performance monitoring software for the datacenter and the cloud, today announced that it has been chosen as one of the Top 20 Companies to Watch in 2009 by Linux Magazine.

The 2009 list features vendors that are best positioned in the coming year to drive Linux and Open Source adoption and innovation while delivering on the immediate needs of the development ops communities.

“We are honored to receive this award from Linux Magazine; community has always been at the heart of everything we do at Hyperic” said Hyperic CEO, Javier Soltero. “We will continue to bring products to market that help web operations teams respond to the ever-changing technology environments that power web applications.”

Hyperic was selected for the highly-regarded Top 20 list for its monitoring software designed specifically for web applications and infrastructure.

Hyperic offers application performance monitoring software for datacenter environments and for Amazon cloud users. Hyperic recently launched their HQ 4.0 product that is the first enterprise-class monitoring and management software offered for deployment natively in Amazon’s cloud as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI).

“Whether it is monitoring a web application hosted in the cloud or a specific infrastructure, Hyperic brings forth solutions that allow for superior management tactics to take place within the enterprise,” said editor-in-chief of Linux Magazine, Bryan Richard.

Hyperic HQ provides numerous benefits to the Linux community including:

  • Monitoring for all flavors of Linux including RedHat Enterprise, SuSe, Gentoo, Fedora and others on both x86 as well as AMD64/EM64T processor architectures
  • Users can measure the activity of each individual CPU alongside memory utilization, local and remote file system statistics and network activity on each interface
  • HQ can monitor individual processes for any system level services using SIGAR's Process Table Query Language technology. This allows a user to easily define criteria and processes which should be monitored for availability, memory, and CPU consumption
