NextiraOne Boosts Flagship OneCockpit Monitoring and Management service

OneCockpit adds ten new technologies in Applications, Data Centre, Collaboration, and Infrastructure

Paris, 15 January 2014 - OneCockpit, NextiraOne's new flagship monitoring and management service, has been further enhanced with the addition of a raft of new technologies and applications that can be proactively managed through the service. The move significantly broadens the scope of OneCockpit, which has been developed to give organisations end-to-end, real-time visibility of their infrastructure and provide early warning of potential performance problems before the activities of the organisation are impacted. NextiraOne, Europe's leading expert in communications services, has been enjoying runaway success with OneCockpit and has continued the momentum with version 2 of the service, released within three months of the initial launch.

Designed and developed in-house by NextiraOne experts, OneCockpit is a unique and comprehensive information systems monitoring and management service that combines a wide range of technologies in one interface. It gives both an overview of the entire infrastructure and detailed information on a wide range of key technologies through a single interface, including applications, data centre solutions, and collaboration systems OneCockpit revolutionises the ability of IT leaders to improve infrastructure and application performance, giving real-time access to what is going on in the digital heart of their information systems. It allows them to take timely, pre-emptive actions to deal with issues, to smooth out bottle-necks and under-utilisation, and thereby to help improve productivity and reduce costs.

"The launch of OneCockpit was a direct response to the growing need of CIOs for coherent performance monitoring," said Shaun Ledgerwood, Vice President Business Development & Services at NextiraOne. "Businesses may already have a range of performance monitoring tools at their disposal; what they lack is a consolidated service that allows them a real-time, bird's eye view of their infrastructure as well as the ability to go deeper, pre-empt failures, and diagnose the causes of outages."

"As one of Europe's biggest Managed Services experts, we have gathered all our expertise into one service that meets the need for an end-to-end approach," continues Shaun Ledgerwood. "OneCockpit allows CIOs to understand what is happening in the network irrespective of the technology, device or location. The key challenge that OneCockpit resolves is in making complex environments simple, transparent and easy to manage, on a global scale."

With its second release, OneCockpit adds ten new technologies and applications which complete end-to-end monitoring and management for a range of solutions, including entire Data Centre solutions, Collaboration technologies and Applications. Version 2 enhances OneCockpit's support for Collaboration solutions with the addition of Avaya systems, Cisco Business Edition 6000 (BE6K), Alcatel OTBE, and AudioCodes gateways. The new version has also strengthened the range of Data Centre technologies supported, by adding NetApp storage solutions. By combining this with Cisco Nexus &UCS and VMware technologies already introduced in the launch edition, OneCockpit now also covers all NextiraOne's solutions that are based on FlexPod and ExpressPod. This means that OneCockpit is able to provide wide-reaching coverage for the latest packaged solutions from all leading manufacturers, in both the collaboration and data centre spaces. It therefore continues to address extended markets and the changing needs of NextiraOne's customers, thereby significantly differentiating OneCockpit from all other monitoring and management offerings.

In terms of network infrastructure solutions, NextiraOne's OneCockpit already supports Local Area and Wide Area Networks (LAN/WAN) and wireless infrastructures, with Version 2 adding Cisco and Alcatel Wireless, and Cisco CBQoS and IPSLA, collecting information on the quality of the network around all Cisco-based networking solutions designed and implemented by NextiraOne. In addition OneCockpit Version 2 covers applications including Microsoft Exchange. OneCockpit monitors Microsoft Exchange servers as well as application processes and services, providing greater visibility on performance and supporting a better end-user experience in collaborative working environments.

With Version 2 now in place, OneCockpit provides a dashboard and management platform for the entire multi-technology infrastructure of most network environments. With further enhancements already in the pipeline, NextiraOne will continue to evolve OneCockpit to meet the needs of organisations as new technologies emerge.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...
The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...
All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and containers together help companies achieve their business goals faster and more effectively. In his session at DevOps Summit, Ruslan Synytsky, CEO and Co-founder of Jelastic, reviewed the current landscape of Dev...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

In a recent research, analyst firm IDC found that the average cost of a critical application failure is $500,000 to $1 million per hour and the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year for Fortune 1000 companies. In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.
