#VMworld 2018 Q&A: Paessler Showcases Award-Winning Network Monitoring Solution at Booth 2314


Are you attending VMworld 2018 in Las Vegas, NV?  If so, I invite you to add Paessler to your MUST SEE list of vendors.

With so many vendors exhibiting at VMworld, how do you know which booths to visit and who to get on your busy schedule?  One of the companies on VMblog's MUST SEE list this year is innovative network monitoring specialist, Paessler.  The company's award-winning PRTG Network Monitor is a powerful, affordable and easy-to-use Unified Monitoring solution that helps IT professionals monitor their entire infrastructure around the clock. 

Read this exclusive pre-show interview with Paessler to learn what they have planned for the upcoming VMworld 2018 event.


VMblog:  As a VMworld 2018 sponsor, how can people find you this year?  What is your booth #?

Paessler:  Paessler will be at booth # 2314.  As a silver-level sponsor, we will have a 10x10 booth and will be sending 4 Paesslerists - 2 sales managers and 2 sales engineers.

VMblog:  Is there anything unique about this year's booth setup?  Do you have a theme?

Paessler:  Our theme is all about ensuring performance and uptime of your virtual environments / VMware stack. We understand the importance of 100% uptime. Many companies monitor their environments using a number of disparate solutions. Couple this with all of the other in-house IT duties and you have a recipe for confusion and at times, disaster. Our networking monitoring tool, PRTG, offers one central, comprehensive monitoring tool for ALL of your monitoring. PRTG is simple to set up, requires little bandwidth, and makes your day-to-day work easier. We'll be offering free demonstrations of PRTG at our booth. 

VMblog:  Can you give readers a few reasons why your product or service is considered unique?

Paessler:  PRTG is unique because, unlike most monitoring solutions, it is extremely lightweight, easy to use and requires no SQL database. Also, the software is very intuitive and self-explaining; there is no need for training or scripting. Users can start right away. Another benefit is our all-in-one licensing model. No need for additional modules or add-ons when using our product.

VMblog:  Can you give VMblog readers a sneak peek as to what you will be showing off at your booth this year?  What should attendees expect to see and hear at your booth?

Paessler:  We will be talking about our VMware partnership, VMware integrations as well as our new eHealth sensors and PRTG hosted solution.

Paessler's PRTG purpose-built sensors are designed to monitor VMware servers and virtual machines, connected devices and help IT administrators track information that is critical to operating and maintaining networks. Last year we received the official designation of VMware Ready status, which means enterprises can have peace of mind knowing that it has been thoroughly tested by VMware for its use in production environments. PRTG also allows you to add custom sensors to your dashboard with ease. With this feature, all the information you need to know about your network is visible in real-time.

For hospitals and medical facilities, we recently introduced our new eHealth sensors, these sensors can be used for monitoring medical equipment that communicates via the protocols HL7 and DICOM, allowing PRTG to monitor your medical IT infrastructure even more closely, accurately and in a timely manner.

VMblog:  How does your company and product fit within the VMware ecosystem?

Paessler:  Due to our technology competence, our leading market position, and our product's compatibility with VMware products we are member of the VMware Technology Alliance Program. PRTG Network Monitor can be installed and run in virtual environments powered by VMware to help ensure the uptime of your VMware environment. Last year our product, received the official designation of VMware Ready status, which means enterprises can have peace of mind knowing that it has been thoroughly tested by VMware for its use in production environments.

VMblog:  How many times have you sponsored VMworld already?  And what keeps you coming back?

Paessler:  Paessler has been a sponsor for the past 5 years, and in that time, we've grown as the virtualization market has. We're looking forward to spending time with existing customers, networking with our partners and meeting new prospects we can help.

VMblog:  Does your company have any speaking sessions during the show?  

Paessler:  We will be giving ongoing PRTG demonstrations at our booth. Those that come by will have the opportunity to see PRTG in action and learn how it simplifies network administrators' lives by providing them with a comprehensive, real-time view of networks, systems and applications regardless of whether they reside on premises, off premises or in hybrid environments. Easily configured to show precisely the information systems administrators want to see, PRTG monitors a wide range of variables that impact today's increasingly complex networks, including devices, traffic, capacity, and performance.
