Netuitive Previews Enhanced Virtual Data Center Dashboard

Predictive Analytics Software Leader Delivers Single View Across Silos and Platforms Solving Virtualization Management Issues in the Enterprise

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - March 8, 2011) - Netuitive, Inc., the leading predictive analytics software platform for virtualization management, today previewed its enhanced virtual data center dashboard available in the next release of the software scheduled for Q2.

Netuitive reduces the risk of enterprise-level virtualization by automating and simplifying the complex task of monitoring and managing even the largest virtual data centers. Netuitive's predictive analytics enables cross-platform visibility across large, heterogeneous environments to help companies eliminate virtual sprawl, optimize and forecast capacity utilization, and warn of impending performance problems before end-users are impacted.

Powered by its patented Behavior Learning Engine™, Netuitive's predictive analytics approach is focused on solving virtualization management issues in the enterprise. Netuitive customers are some the largest production deployments of virtual machines including eight of the world's 10 largest banks and several global telecommunications firms. 

Netuitive's new virtual infrastructure dashboard provides a unified, real-time view of performance and capacity of an entire virtual data center delivering rich cross-platform insight across VMs, hosts, storage, and networks, in a single screen. 

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, Netuitive improves visibility across applications, platforms and vendors, and because its learning is adaptive, it excels in dynamic, virtualized environments. This includes the ability to interchange hypervisor licenses across Microsoft Hyper-V, Xen Hypervisor and VMware. 

In addition to providing an overall picture of performance and capacity management in virtual infrastructures, Netuitive correlates end user experience and application metrics based on real-time data provided from existing monitoring tools such as VMware, Microsoft, BMC, IBM Tivoli, CA (Wily), HP, NetApp, Oracle, Compuware (Gomez), etc. Data is collected and normalized in Netuitive's integration hub, analyzed by Netuitive's predictive IT analytics engine, with actionable outputs delivered based on the analysis. The new dashboard graphically shows this analysis in a simplified view based on health and workload of the IT environment. From here, IT workers can easily drill down for details in particular areas or respond to alarms that have been triggered from the comprehensive analysis. 

"We are pleased to provide a sneak peak of the new dashboard and look forward to announcing all of the features that will be in the next release of Netuitive scheduled for Q2," said Nicola Sanna, CEO of Netuitive. "Predictive analytics for IT continues to grow as a must have for virtualization management and cloud infrastructure initiatives in enterprises globally." 

Categorized as "transformational" by Gartner, Behavior Learning technology, which is at the core of the Netuitive' predictive analytics software, is being recognized as a key advancement for overcoming major performance issues connected to virtualization management and cloud computing.1, 2
