Entuity today announced Eye of the Storm Network Professional Edition (EYE NPE), a network management solution that defines a new category along the management price/performance continuum – enterprise functionality at a price point previously reserved for workgroup class tools struggling to scale and support SME network needs.
The newest member of Entuity’s software family delivers technology for the mid-market on three fronts: automation, accuracy, and deep functionality for management to cost-effectively keep dynamic and contemporary networks optimally performing.
EYE NPE delivers optimal network performance by going beyond the “red light/green light” signaling that qualifies the typical low-priced network management tools. EYE NPE provides an intelligent view of object connectivity, root cause analysis, and a broad range of configurable thresholds allowing users to pinpoint where problems occur and quickly take action.
Unlike the device-centric approach of other commercially available solutions, EYE NPE includes user configurable views which represent any logical collection of devices or segmentation of the network. Views represent a higher abstraction of the network – a business unit, a building, a particular floor, a department, or the devices assigned to particular operations personnel – then EYE NPE collects and reports operational metrics matching specified business processes. Built in reports with a versatile scheduler in a range of business-ready formats are also available to automate reporting and distribution.
Built from Entuity’s enterprise class event engine and database that support 85,000 managed objects per server, EYE NPE supports up to 7,500 managed objects on a single server and combines proven features of the best network management tools on the market. The product is priced at $22,500.
EYE NPE will be available June 26, and runs on Microsoft Windows Server operating systems, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and VMWare ESX Server.
