Netuitive Unveils Netuitive 5.0, Delivers First Self-learning Management Solution for Cloud Infrastructures
The leading provider of self-learning performance management software, today released Netuitive 5.0 to address the immediate needs of organizations that need to manage the performance of highly dynamic and distributed cloud infrastructures. With this release, Netuitive both unifies its award-winning Service Analyzer and Netuitive SI products into a single, comprehensive solution and delivers the industry’s first productized Performance Management Database (PMDB).

Netuitive 5.0 enables automated end-to-end service views and monitoring administration of systems and services within cloud infrastructures, empowering organizations to improve system performance, ensure service quality and availability and leverage existing investments while reducing operating and administrative costs.

“Netuitive has a long legacy of thought leadership and driving innovation in the very challenging area of performance management,” explains Nicola Sanna, president and CEO of Netuitive. “We are guiding some of the biggest companies in the world, including seven of the ten largest banks and three of the largest telcos, on their private cloud initiatives. We understand these customers’ needs and the performance management challenges they face in creating private clouds. Many of these customers have already standardized on Netuitive's performance management platform to monitor mission-critical applications. Their experience demonstrates Netuitive's unequaled ability to increase the value of existing performance management solutions, assure the stability of mission critical applications and reduce costs.”

Built with proven, self-learning and continuously adaptive software based on nine patented technologies and 20 years of research, Netuitive 5.0 is the first performance management solution that uniquely addresses the performance management challenges of the cloud. Netuitive 5.0 replaces human guesswork with automated mathematics and analysis to understand normal system behavior across IT silos, isolate root causes of service issues and forecast degradations before they impact performance.

“Cloud computing is quickly gaining traction in the marketplace, yet private, cloud-based infrastructures are far more dynamic than anything a data center manager could have envisioned even five years ago,” comments Dennis Drogseth, vice president with Enterprise Management Associates. “While the cloud may in some cases simplify service provisioning, the underlying infrastructure has many more moving parts to manage. Cloud-based services that often rely on multiple, geographically dispersed systems, cannot be effectively monitored with manual correlation rules and static thresholds, or siloed tool sets that only address one domain at a time. In such a complex environment, with little room for error, flexible, assimilative, self-learning capabilities like those of Netuitive are quickly becoming essential foundations for responsible service management.”

Netuitive 5.0 – New Product Features

Netuitive 5.0 is built on the same self-learning technology that won the 2010 CODiE Award for “Best Systems Management Solution” and 2009 “Best of VMworld” Award for virtualization management. Key new features include:

  • Unified Visualization - Aggregates service views from distributed infrastructures, regardless of monitoring source or geography, to deliver a real-time dashboard view of end-to-end service health.  Netuitive 5.0 self-learns and correlates the performance for every component that enables an organization’s private cloud service – including physical and virtual servers, storage, network and applications. – to provide unprecedented visibility, performance forecasting and root-cause isolation.  Netuitive 5.0 also now provides roll-up views of the sub-services that might make up a complete cloud service offering.  For example, an organization’s “Online Storefront” service can be seen in context with its subordinate application services such as “authentication,” “catalog lookup,” “inventory,” and “credit card authorization” – even if some of these are enabled by third-party providers.
  • Performance Management Database (PMDB) - Leverages data already being collected by existing systems monitoring tools (e.g. BMC, CA, IBM, HP, Microsoft, VMware) to deliver the richest source of IT performance information available anywhere for capacity management. Organizations can now search millions of data points to quickly evaluate system performance in order to fully optimize under-utilized infrastructure assets, including servers, storage and network components. The Netuitive PMDB collects raw performance data of 10-1000 KPIs per system from physical or virtual components, integrates and normalizes data from any monitoring source, and supports metadata or the use of a CMDB to describe system attributes. By drawing on the performance data, organizations can instantly analyze resource utilization from hundreds of different angles, such as identifying the most under/over-utilized servers; identifying factors driving the workload for a group of servers; or analyzing resource usage by application, region, owner, business unit or service. Users can also export data to third-party enterprise reporting and analysis tools for long-range capacity planning.

Netuitive 5.0 is available now. To inquire about Netuitive 5.0 and current pricing, contact Netuitive by completing the form located at Contact Netuitive.
