Latisys Rolls Out Next Generation IT Infrastructure Monitoring Platform

ScienceLogic Supports Latisys Vision for Flexible, Federated, Self-Service IT Infrastructure Services

ASHBURN, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/06/14 -- Latisys, a leading provider of hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions today announced key enhancements to its scalable IT Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform.

As part of its strategy and a commitment to deliver high performance IaaS solutions tailored to the unique needs of today's dynamic mid-to-enterprise-sized businesses, Latisys is integrating ScienceLogic's next-generation IT monitoring software -- a platform purpose-built for service providers that enables unprecedented visibility into and control over the health and performance metrics that matter most to each customer.

Mid-size to enterprise businesses continue to deploy a mix of hybrid hosting, private cloud and data center solutions. As IT needs evolve and cloud security advances, cloud adoption for specific mission critical workloads will accelerate and "federation" -- the interconnection of disparate IT and cloud infrastructures for seamless interoperability, control and support -- will take center stage.

ScienceLogic EM7 represents a critical milestone in Latisys' commitment to make hybrid IT and federation a reality for clients. The EM7 platform integrates core IT monitoring functions across dedicated servers, virtual machines and storage -- wherever infrastructure assets are deployed -- giving Latisys greater visibility into performance metrics for more predictive issue diagnosis, root cause analysis and trending.

Benefits of Latisys' enterprise monitoring:

  • Seamless single console view into: service levels, health, availability and risk regardless of where individual service delivery resources (e.g. storage, network, database, web servers) reside -- in the data center or in the cloud.

  • Ability to create context-rich dashboards and role-based views where thresholds can be modified to reflect the metrics most relevant to both the business and the individual.

  • Visibility beyond the Latisys platform and into workloads that burst between on- and off-premise infrastructure, such as public clouds like Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Service (AWS) and OpenStack.

Future plans call for additional flexibility, giving customers greater control over their monitoring platform and enabling them to modify the metrics they track in near real-time. This includes changing thresholds and adding new services via the self-service portal.

"The combination of a unified platform, process automation, and a high touch, consultative approach to solution design and delivery makes Latisys one of the few providers that will truly be ready to deliver on the promise of federated hybrid IaaS," said Antonio Piraino, CTO of ScienceLogic. "ScienceLogic EM7 was purpose-built for the hybrid service provider, giving Latisys and its customers' critical visibility and control, which is what every CIO needs in this dynamic, evolving marketplace."

"We see a world in which mid-size to enterprise organizations accelerate their investment in hybrid solutions to solve business problems, become more efficient and drive growth," said Christian Teeft, CTO of Latisys. "Technology leaders depend on their IaaS partners to manage and monitor effectively across on- and off-premise private and public cloud environments. ScienceLogic helps Latisys make this a reality, further cementing our place as a leading platform for flexible, federated IT infrastructure."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
