Virtual Instruments Launches Managed Service Offering in Australia

Virtual Instruments as a Service Enables Organizations to Guarantee Infrastructure Performance

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/23/14 -- Virtual Instruments, the leader in Infrastructure Performance Management for physical, virtual and cloud computing environments, today announced the launch of a new offering for the Australian marketplace. The new Virtual Instruments as a Service (VIaaS) solution will provide the full capabilities of the industry-leading VirtualWisdom platform as an ongoing managed service offering, enabling customers to monitor the performance of their end-to-end IT infrastructure and proactively mitigate risks without an upfront capital investment.

With the rapid adoption of Infrastructure as a Service, managed services, and cloud-based computing models in Australia and New Zealand, customers are realizing that many challenges come with such a dramatic change. Many clients require a solution that can measure and report on real-time infrastructure performance and give them confidence that applications will achieve required performance levels to support their business. Furthermore, as clients migrate applications to this new environment, they want assurance that their infrastructure can absorb increased workloads and additional users.

"Australia has a great track record of breaking new ground and being early adopters of innovative technology-based service delivery models, and we can't think of a better place to introduce Virtual Instruments as a Service," said Bo Barker, vice president of services at Virtual Instruments. "Our solution eliminates the endless headaches of IT outages and performance issues that affect customers and service providers every day. By partnering with managed service and cloud providers we look forward to delivering significantly improved service level agreements -- at a lower total cost for all."

Virtual Instruments provides the ability to monitor the end-to-end performance of the infrastructure and proactively mitigate the risks of moving to infrastructure as a service and the cloud. The VIaaS offering is a unique combination of hardware, software, and services expertise provided by the Virtual Instruments team. The solution discovers, captures, correlates, analyzes and presents an unparalleled breadth and depth of machine and wire data from across the open systems infrastructure. VIaaS captures more than 320 unique, real-time metrics delivering comprehensive visibility into the health, utilization and performance of the end-to-end system.

Virtual Instruments' "performance guarantee" is already helping some of the world's most critical infrastructures, including industry leaders across major verticals and almost half of the Fortune 100. With the launch of our new offering, the VirtualWisdom platform is now available as a service to industry leaders, managed service providers, and cloud service providers in the Australian market.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.

Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
