NetScout introduces nGeniusPulse 2.5

NetScout Systems Inc. recently announced its nGenius Service Assurance platform has extended infrastructure monitoring into VMware virtual and Wi-Fi infrastructures with the release of nGeniusPulse 2.5.

NetScout is a provider of application and network performance management products. nGeniusPulse is a health monitoring testing platform, which combines active monitoring  of service availability of public cloud, VoIP, and networks with server and network device availability and health monitoring, according to the company.

NetScout noted nGeniusPulse complements and combines with its service assurance platform NetScout nGeniusOne, along with its wire-data approach to managing services, powered by the company’s patented Adaptive Service Intelligence (ASI) technology.

“NetScout continues to advance the monitoring and visibility reach of the nGeniusONE Service Assurance platform for use across the broad IT organization,” said Dan Conde, senior analyst, ESG, in a statement. “With the reach of nGeniusPulse now expanded to Wi-Fi and virtual infrastructure monitoring, customers can use the single platform to proactively monitor these elements together with other infrastructure elements. And with the increased scalability, customers will be better prepared to achieve end-to-end visibility as their IT infrastructures evolve.”

nGeniusPulse is also able to monitor Wi-Fi service availability and infrastructure health in user locations. The company said that Wi-Fi access points and W-LAN controllers are monitored at each site in order to spot any issues that can hinder network services from running properly.

With respect to VMware, the latest version of nGeniusPulse is intended to maintain the health of a VMware infrastructure, specifically of VMware vSphere components. This provides infrastructure intelligence for both physical and virtual environments, according to the company. Additionally, KPIs are combined with contextual metadata and delivered in a VMware context to accelerate time to identification and resolution of issues impacting virtual infrastructure.

“NetScout customers use wire-data and our service-centric approach, with contextual workflows combining nGeniusONE and nGeniusPULSE, for faster triage with smooth IP-to-infrastructure investigations. With the latest release of nGeniusPulse, customers have even greater visibility to track issues all the way from the service to a specific infrastructure element, including Wi-Fi and VMware virtual environments,” said Russ Currie, vice president enterprise strategy, NetScout. “With enterprises deploying increasingly complex services, only NetScout provides pervasive visibility for service assurance across the diverse combinations of private, hybrid, SaaS and public cloud architectures.”
