Xangati Extends Cloud Service Assurance Analytics and Performance Control to AWS, Azure, Docker

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2016) - Xangati -- the only live, cross-silo performance intelligence and IT efficiency solution engineered for hybrid-cloud infrastructures -- today announced three new data-source compute extensions to its best-in-class service assurance analytics and performance control platform: Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Docker, in which Xangati's virtual appliance software will correlate real-time data across on-premise virtualization, containers and public clouds to enable self-healing optimization.

Hybrid-cloud infrastructures are designed to accommodate multiple applications, a shared or converged physical layer, and a software-defined layer, all of which expose the data center to higher risk of unpredictable performance problems and resource inefficiency challenges. Conventional infrastructure monitoring solutions are inadequate in that they are generally silo-specific and application unaware. Application performance management (APM) solutions alone are inadequate in that they are generally infrastructure unaware. Xangati maps infrastructure behavior to autonomic controls across traditional silos in real time and analyzes impacts to app performance, efficiency and delivery to optimize virtualized workloads across any compute platform from private to hybrid cloud.

According to Gartner analysts Pankaj Prasad and Vivek Bhalla: "IT operations teams will need to move away from siloed operations for better synergies across various teams to take full advantage of ITOA tools. This is also necessitated by the fact that workloads are taking center stage over the siloed domains of IT (servers, networks, databases, etc.), and IT operations teams have to work together to ensure these workloads are not impacted, while also improving the mean time to restore services (MTTR) in case of any outage." (Gartner, Modernize ECA With IT Infrastructure Monitoring Tools, Pankaj Prasad, Vivek Bhalla, 21 January 2016, G00291860).

The extensions for AWS, Azure and Docker are subscription licenses stackable on top of a required license for the core Xangati ESP for Cloud Infrastructure platform. The AWS and Azure Extensions analyze CPU, memory and storage utilization of an organization's virtual machines and associated objects, and Virtual Private Cloud VMs hosted in AWS or Azure accounts.

In a classic hybrid-cloud infrastructure, any VM can be a Docker container host if the proper credentials to collect data are granted, such as for micro-services that execute one service or app. The Xangati ESP Extension for Docker tracks and correlates metrics for containers and images so that they can be profiled and alerted upon within the overall context of the live, second-by-second, end-to-end visibility and performance control services provided by Xangati.

"In today's contemporary enterprise hybrid-cloud infrastructure is the reality: bi-modal IT incorporates an organization's applications and data when they are distributed across multi-tiered environments. While IT operations teams may not control all the siloed assets services run on, they still need to gain granular visibility into the performance of all functional components in order to drive attainment of business outcomes tied to metric-based service levels," said Atchison Frazer, CMO, Xangati. "Xangati continues to deliver innovative solutions to these challenges with our newest cloud and container capabilities, allowing cloud-virtualization and IT operations managers to bank on the optimal performance of their entire hybrid infrastructure through one management console that automates prescriptive actions and drives greater efficiency."
