Application Performance and End-User Experience Monitoring

Updated: January 05, 2011

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Sept. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- Visual Network Systems, a leading provider of application and network performance management solutions for IT organizations, today announced the availability of VPM Xpress, a single-appliance solution for complete application performance and end-user experience monitoring. This is a commitment to invest and expand Visual Performance Manager (VPM), a distributed, scalable unified performance management solution for application and network performance management. As a new deployment option for Visual Performance Manager, VPM Xpress offers the same enterprise service intelligence capabilities of VPM in a platform that is appropriately scaled for mid-market IT organizations, departmental or regional data centers of F1000. Network engineers and application support teams require a cost-effective solution that not only offers visibility into application performance, but one that correlates data from multiple sources, to show cause and effect to help solve problems faster. VPM Xpress is quick and simple to deploy and generates actionable visibility into problem domain isolation and root cause to drive rapid mean time to repair.

The cause and effect analytics provided by VPM Xpress are made possible by IntelliTrace™, a patented technology that provides users with peak to transaction to trace analytics based on a particular application performance event or degradation in service delivery. The ability to understand how a problem directly affects the end user's experience at a given location and the cause of the issue shortens the time to resolution. IntelliTrace, together with a data correlation engine to process information from multiple sources, makes VPM Xpress the ideal solution for engineers and executives who need actionable information and summarized dashboard reporting to effectively manage their application and network environment.

"VPM Xpress is designed specifically for the mid-market. We have included a comprehensive set of capabilities for managing applications and end-user experience based on our unique data correlation engine and IntelliTrace, but in an affordable package and easy to install configuration. Users can go from out-of-the-box to fully deployed in 30 minutes or less and benefit from the same power of our Visual Performance Manager to effectively deliver networked applications," said Lyn Cantor, senior vice president and general manager, Visual Network Systems. "The single-appliance packaging was also designed with our channel partners, system integrators and potential OEM in mind. VPM Xpress provides them a growth path with their customers to expand the deployment easily into a distributed configuration."

VPM Xpress features more than 93 pre-configured applications, enabling engineers to deploy the solution quickly and easily. Within a matter of minutes, users have access to application performance, end-user experience and network performance data and reporting, an almost immediate return on the investment and increase in productivity. An upgrade path is available to scale the solution as the needs of the organization grow, protecting their initial investment.
