Netuitive Previews Predictive Analytics Platform for End-to-End Cloud Management

Industry-First Open Integration Hub for the Cloud

RESTON, VA--(Marketwire - January 31, 2011) - Netuitive, Inc., which provides the leading IT analytics platform for cloud management, today announced plans for the industry's first predictive IT analytics platform for end-to-end analysis of performance and capacity management in the cloud. 

Underpinning the new platform, Netuitive is preparing to roll out Integration Studio, an open development environment that enables customers to plug in data streams from any monitoring source. Data is collected and normalized in Netuitive's integration hub, analyzed by Netuitive's predictive IT analytics software powered by Behavior Learning technology, with actionable outputs delivered based on the analysis.

Central to this are APIs enabling integration with configuration management databases, incident management, and programmatic administration of users security and policies.

Integration Studio will complement Netuitive's broad portfolio of standard integrations with leading monitoring tools from companies such as VMware, BMC, CA, Compuware, HP, IBM, Microsoft, NetApp, NetIQ, Oracle, TeamQuest, Infovista, and others. 

Netuitive's automated collection and analysis, when combined with unlimited data integration possibilities, will be the industry's first and most comprehensive IT analytics platform for end-to-end cloud management. Key capabilities currently in the platform along with those being added progressively include:

  • Integration Studio [Q4] -- Input real-time performance and capacity data from any system or application
  • Trusted Triggers [Q3] -- Intelligence for autonomic computing (dynamic resource provisioning and right-sizing of infrastructure -- cloud service governor)
  • Enhanced Virtual Data Center Dashboard [Q2] - Gain real time, multi-tier visibility into infrastructure performance
  • Capacity Analysis -- Understand and optimize utilization of existing resources
  • Automated Diagnostics -- Correlate behavior and isolate root cause across IT silos
  • Predictive Analytics -- Forecast problems 2+ hours before users are impacted

Using its patented Behavior Learning Engine™, Netuitive software replaces manual, rules-based approaches with statistical analysis that automatically correlates and self-learns the operational behavior of IT systems and applications. It then forecasts issues before they impact performance and isolates root cause wherever a problem occurs. 

Recently categorized as "transformational" by Gartner, Behavior Learning technology, which is at the core of the Netuitive solution, is being recognized as a key advancement for overcoming major performance issues connected to virtualization and cloud computing.1, 2

According to Gartner analyst Donna Scott, "The inherent nature of virtualized infrastructure and private cloud solutions is dynamic and complex creating a significant management challenge. This makes manual rules-based approaches no longer viable requiring a move to an analytics-based approach that provides a real-time behavioral understanding of how the IT infrastructure is performing and being used."

"The private cloud demands a new breed of intelligence to monitor and manage it," said Nicola Sanna, president and CEO of Netuitive. "Our large enterprise customers are coming to us with complexity issues that are orders of magnitude larger than just a few years ago. Netuitive is committed to delivering foundational elements, such as Integration Studio and Trusted Triggers, to create the industry's first predictive analytics-based approach to cloud management that crosses platforms, data sources, vendors and users."
