Entuity® Launches New Perspectives to Shake Up Network Management

Eye of the Storm® Enterprise Offers Unique InSight Center™ Focusing on Services Delivery

MARLBOROUGH, MA and LONDON--(Marketwire - November 17, 2009) -


News Facts

  • Entuity today announces the newest release of its award-winning network management solution, Eye of the Storm (EYE) Enterprise 2010. This latest version turns traditional network management paradigms upside down, taking on a services delivery focused approach that allows IT administrators to easily manage strategic distributed technologies and network architectures of medium and large enterprises alike. EYE 2010 empowers IT administrators to finally answer the question of whether their network infrastructure is supporting strategic IT services delivery, and provides advanced analytics as proof.
  • In addition to Entuity's industry-first Green IT Perspective™, the EYE InSight Center features two new Perspectives, providing at-a-glance visibility to key operational initiatives. The new Services Delivery Perspective™ provides an innovative, top-level synopsis and status of your company's strategic technology services. The new Network Delivery Perspective™ displays pertinent details of services, applications, servers, and infrastructure availability across the environment. Users can create and configure their own custom perspectives for ultimate versatility.
  • Business services rely on a broad range of applications, IP services, network devices, servers, and client devices. EYE 2010 introduces a new Services Model functionality enabling administrators to monitor and manage how the network infrastructure is serving business needs rather than reporting on the status of individual components.
  • The demands placed by business services on your network change from hour-to-hour throughout the week. EYE 2010's Dynamic Threshold functionality provides insight to "normal" operations, allowing you to effectively prioritize and manage performance anomalies. Dynamic Thresholds send an alert only when there is a violation of the baseline, reducing the operational expense of troubleshooting and following up on incidents created during high network utilization.
  • With EYE 2010, new business continuity capabilities keep your network management system protecting mission-critical business service delivery and satisfying even the largest of enterprises. The new EYE High Availability Compatibility Module offers a custom agent for Veritas™ Cluster Server (VCS) from Symantec. EYE 2010 has also been validated against NeverFail® from NeverFail Group, requiring no additional adapter. Both solutions offer a range of capabilities for high availability to meet a variety of needs and budgets.
  • Reporting capabilities in EYE 2010 keep pace with the contemporary needs of network managers by providing a greater depth of insight. IT administrators can now quickly synthesize a broad range of network operational and performance data into actionable and graphically descriptive reports. Nearly 20 new reports have been added to EYE's out-of-the-box report bundle, for more than 100 in total, giving users one-click documentation. Reports can be automated to run at scheduled intervals and be automatically delivered in a range of formats necessary for business correspondence processes.
  • EYE 2010 Enterprise will be available November 30th, and runs on Microsoft® Windows Server® operating systems, Sun™ Solaris™, Red Hat® Enterprise Linux®, and VMWare® ESX Server. Pricing starts at $50,000.
