Netuitive Announces Netuitive 5.5 for the Enterprise
Netuitive, Inc. today announced its latest release, Netuitive 5.5, the leading predictive analytics software that forecasts, identifies and resolves IT issues before they impact quality of service.

Built for large enterprises, Netuitive 5.5 is a robust performance management platform for mission-critical applications running in physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. New product features help IT organizations eliminate virtual server sprawl, optimize server consolidation ratios, enable long term capacity trending, and improve the manageability of virtualized applications.

Key 5.5 additions include:

  • Flexible One-View Dashboard – Provides a unified performance view of the virtualized data center. Visualizes Workload, Health and Capacity of the virtual data center to provide rich cross-platform insight in a single screen.
  • Chargeback (and “Showback”) Reports – Enables IT to provide detailed application utilization and cost analysis reports to business managers. Aligns new pay-per-use models with the financial systems and decision processes of the business.
  • Support for Multi-hypervisor environments – New integration with Microsoft Hyper-V increases flexibility and choice. (VMware support already available).

Netuitive 5.5 reduces the risk of enterprise-level virtualization by automating and simplifying the complex task of monitoring and managing mission-critical applications running in heterogeneous IT environments. It Netuitive 5.5 reduces IT management costs, increases flexibility for changing business needs, and enables more efficient management of application workloads in physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures.

Powered by its patented Behavior Learning Engine, Netuitive’s predictive analytics software is a major advancement in managing the performance of applications and their underlying infrastructures. Netuitive eliminates 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 improves visibility across platforms and vendors, and because its learning is adaptive, it excels in dynamic, virtualized environments.

Other new features and enhancements in 5.5 include:

  • Expanded Storage Support – New integration with EMC Celerra adds to existing NAS storage monitoring options such as NetApp.
  • Expanded Virtualized Data Center Reports – (sample highlights)
    • Storage Utilization and Forecast Report - Projects storage utilization trends 30-60-90 days out
    • Inventory Summary Report -- Clusters, hosts, VMs, VM/Host ratio
    • Enhanced Cluster Forecast – Capacity index added to trend workload

“In preparation for deploying a private cloud, organizations must get the management of their virtual data center under control,” said Donna Scott, Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst. “Predictive analytics enabled by Behavior Learning technology is critical for real-time performance visibility and diagnosis required to optimize the user experience. Predictive analytics should be part of any risk mitigation strategy as organizations evolve from virtualization management to cloud computing and real-time infrastructure.”

“Netuitive 5.5 further increases our focus on managing performance of mission-critical applications by ensuring performance of the underlying IT infrastructure -- be it physical, virtual or cloud,” said Nicola Sanna, CEO of Netuitive. “By maximizing visibility across platforms and silos we are empowering application and business owners to maximize value from virtual infrastructures while increasing confidence in managing their mission-critical applications.”

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 global telco reported in a Gartner case study that it is using Netuitive to analyze more than a million metrics simultaneously allowing it to eliminate 3,480 hours annually in service degradation representing a business savings of $18 million.
