SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 21, 2013) - Virtual Instruments, the leader in Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM) for physical, virtual and cloud computing environments, today announced the launch of its operations in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. Through its APAC headquarters in Singapore and a local office in Australia, the regional team will provide sales, services and support to enterprise customers across Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and throughout Southeast Asia.
"Our expansion into Asia Pacific follows our growing success in North America and Europe. The global nature of our customer base requires that we have a strong presence in the markets where they have growing business operations," said John W. Thompson, CEO of Virtual Instruments. "We have an industry-leading solution, an expanding partner ecosystem and a growing sales, services and support operation that positions us well to help IT organizations across the region."
Asia Pacific is home to some of the largest and fastest growing data centers in the world and customers are increasingly adopting virtualization and cloud technologies to create a more flexible IT infrastructure. However, these technologies have also added increased levels of complexity that limit IT's ability to manage the underlying systems infrastructure. Businesses expect their infrastructure to always be available and downtime, or even a modest amount of performance degradation, is no longer acceptable.
As a result, companies are paying more attention to proactively managing the performance of their IT infrastructure, and turning to Virtual Instruments for help. The Virtual Instruments VirtualWisdom© platform helps organizations guarantee the highest level of performance, availability and utilization of IT infrastructures supporting mission-critical applications.
"We're pleased to have won our first few customers in Asia Pacific. We expect our growth to accelerate as we focus on global enterprises, especially those in financial services, telecommunications, government, and the service provider segment supporting these markets," said Todd Osborne, Regional Vice President, APAC Sales, Virtual Instruments. "With a professional services team in the region we're able to work closely with customers to baseline performance, optimize existing infrastructures and remediate outages or performance bottlenecks. Our goal is to have VirtualWisdom become the standard for IPM within every enterprise data center throughout the region."
The VirtualWisdom© platform has been architected from the ground-up to provide visibility into the performance and availability of an organizations' IT infrastructure. When evaluating infrastructure performance management solutions, organizations need to consider:
1. Continuous Real-Time Measurement: Measurement of end-to-end response times to get a true view of infrastructure performance.
2. Unbiased and Heterogeneous: The ability to collect data from various devices in the infrastructure without a dependency on or giving priority to specific vendor products.
3. Systemic Data Collection: Data and metrics that are collected throughout the IT infrastructure, including from the virtual machines, servers, fabric switches, storage arrays and volumes.
4. System-wide Visibility: The capability to track any activity across the IT infrastructure for a high-level view into the performance, health and utilization of the end-to-end infrastructure.
