Entuity Increases Operational Efficiency with All-In-One Network Management Suite

Entuity today announced the general availability of a major new release of its award-winning solution, Eye of the Storm Enterprise 2012 (EYE 2012). This new version contains significant functional improvements on network coverage while continuing to focus on reducing the time and effort required of network administrators.

EYE 2012 integrates all the requisite, contemporary network management functionality –automated, continual discovery of inventory and topology, event alerting, root cause analysis, configuration management and elemental and flow-based performance – into one tightly-integrated product with enterprise-wide scalability and extensive customizable reporting.

Virtual Switch Support - EYE 2012 extends the existing discovery, inventory and topology of virtualized systems to include embedded virtual switches. The supported virtual switches in this release include:

  • VMware standard vSwitch
  • VMware distributed vSwitch
  • Cisco Nexus 1000V

This functionality eliminates a growing blind spot that is critical to enable faster troubleshooting, improved capacity planning and intelligent network design. In addition EYE 2012 built-in net flow capability can now understand traffic flows in Cisco Nexus 1000V.

  • New Interactive Charting – Collecting deep, broad and timely network data does little good if it requires significant effort to make sense of it. EYE 2012 advanced, “any-data” aggregation and visualization techniques can utilize data from different sources or timeframes to quickly provide effortless insight into networks behavior. Drag and drop multiple network analytics at anytime into charts to visualize display how metrics affect each other. Or create custom dashboards to provide aggregation, cumulative performance and long and short term history at your fingertip to enable more powerful troubleshooting and discovery of long term trends.
  • Centralized License Management - EYE 2012 simplifies license administration by creating a centralized license pool that is managed from a single EYE 2012 server for all or selected servers throughout the enterprise. This flexibility also allows administrators to quickly determine enterprise license status.
  • High Frequency Polling – Not all applications have equal business importance. Accordingly, the network ports that support these may require closer, more precise monitoring. Port selective high frequency polling can be specified at one minute or less intervals to keep a better “eye” on high value network assets. This allows for important port outage detection in near real time, less-important alerts muting, more precise sampling of performance data and quicker remediation of problems before they turn into major impacts.
  • Additional Improvements for More Efficient Network Management
    • Extended Discovery - EYE 2012 now adds more information about the infrastructure and its connectivity than was previously available with the addition of two discovery protocols: Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) and SONMP.
    • Platforms -EYE 2012 is available for Microsoft® Windows Server®, Oracle® Solaris™ and Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® on both physical and virtualized hardware. Other supported virtual environments include Oracle VM Server & VM Manager, VMWare ESX/ESXi & vCenter Server, and Microsoft Hyper-V.
    • Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c Integration - The Oracle Enterprise Manager plug-in developed in EYE 2011 for Oracle EM 11g is now available in EYE 2012 and compatible with Oracle EM 12c. Using this plug-in, Oracle Enterprise Manager customers can proactively monitor and assure application health by detecting potential network problems that may be affecting application service delivery.
    • Detection of Module Adds/Changes/Deletions - EYE 2012 polls all devices to detect changes in module configuration where modules are added, removed or changed. Any module changes detected are added to the discovered database immediately. In turn, an appropriate event is raised against the device to inform administrators of the detected change in a timely manner.
