NEW YORK and LONDON, March 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
World's leading networking companies join the alliance and demonstrate integration with Corvil
Corvil, the provider of real-time operational performance monitoring, today announced the launch of their Industry Alliance Partner Program to drive advanced solutions and architectures for streaming data, storage and real-time analytics. Alliance partners include APCON, Arista, Cisco, cPacket, Gigamon, Ixia/Anue and VSS.
The network is one of the richest sources of data for operational intelligence relating to the real-time performance and health of a modern IT driven business. As data volumes and velocity increase exponentially in the network, it is important that the solution architecture quickly evolves to drive down cost, reduce complexity and improve manageability of deployments.
Corvil, in collaboration with its partners, have pioneered the development of a next generation architecture for time-stamped data capture over the network, lossless storage and real-time IT operational analytics. Such a solution is critical in today's modern, real-time industries including electronic trading, e-banking, online retailing, real-time advertising, and online gaming and entertainment.
"We have collaborated closely with Corvil to provide solutions for the highly-demanding financial vertical. Corvil was an early collaborator on our Arista DANZ instrumentation and time-stamped streaming of wire-data from our switches to their analytics platform. We look forward to continued collaboration with Corvil to drive innovation in the area of wire-data capture and the rich insights that can only be gleaned from streaming data in the network," said Ed Chapman, Vice President Business Development and Alliances, Arista.
Corvil pioneered the creation of powerful operational insight based on time-stamped streaming data over the network. This time-stamping has now moved to their partner's platforms and Corvil's "trust but verify" approach has assured that data quality and time accuracy is preserved. This is what feeds the CorvilNet platform and is the key starting point for deriving deep insights and actionable intelligence. This approach enables accurate analysis of key performance indicators, such as latency, and provides a solid basis for machine-event audit trail discovery and deep-insight troubleshooting.
"We offer high-performance infrastructure as a service to the financial markets. Our ability to manage and monitor all activity and incidents in real-time is critical to our business and to our clients' business. We are a Corvil customer and have deployed Corvil's real-time IT analytics platform on top of our network and use it every day. It provides pro-active visibility, insight and intelligence to assure the highest quality of service for our clients. We welcome the goals of the Corvil Alliance program to drive down the costs of network data acquisition, storage and analysis which is an important factor for us as we experience continued growth in our business and infrastructure," commented Sonny Baillargeon, CTO of Pico Technologies.
"We greatly value the collaboration with our industry alliance partners. Together, we bring a better solution to our common customers. We look forward to working with all existing and new members of our alliance program to drive new innovation and best in class solutions for acquiring and analysing the big data that streams through the network," said Donal O' Sullivan, VP of Product Management Corvil.

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not.

The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. After all, without continuous testing there is no delivery. And Lab-As-A-Service (LaaS) enhances the CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software developm...
