Pacific Northwest Technology Community Honors ExtraHop's Innovative Approach to Monitoring Performance of Workloads in Amazon's Cloud Environment

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - May 09, 2014) - ExtraHop, the global leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT operational intelligence, today announced that its ExtraHop for AWS solution was named Innovation of the Year 2014 by GeekWire. The annual GeekWire Awards honor the Puget Sound's most creative, innovative, and forward-thinking growth companies in categories including Innovation of the Year, Start-up CEO of the Year, and Deal of the Year, amongst others. This award from GeekWire follows a spate of recent industry recognition for ExtraHop. In May 2013, ExtraHop for AWS was named Best of Interop in the Cloud Computing and Virtualization category, and earlier this year, Network World ranked ExtraHop first among a field of five vendors in its Application Performance Monitoring Shootout.

"Amazon Web Services has not only helped to put Seattle on the map when it comes to cloud technologies, it has ignited a spark among many members of the Seattle tech community," said Matt McIlwain, Managing Director, Madrona Venture Group. "ExtraHop is at the forefront of cloud innovation, and its AWS solution empowers enterprises to accelerate cloud adoption by optimizing workload performance, availability, and security. This award from GeekWire is strong recognition of the meaningful track record of product innovation demonstrated by ExtraHop."

With wire data analytics that extend far beyond network and application performance monitoring, the ExtraHop for AWS solution enables IT teams to predictably monitor workload performance; understand differences between AWS regions and zones; accurately track efficiency and performance-based SLAs; and ensure security with pervasive, contextual monitoring. IT teams also use ExtraHop for AWS to better identify applications for migration and architect them for optimal performance post-migration. ExtraHop's fully-integrated platform approach, which allows IT to view on-premises and cloud environments in a single management pane, empowers IT organizations with the insight they need to accelerate and optimize public cloud adoption.

"Amazon's meteoric rise to prominence in the world of cloud computing has helped to position Seattle as a leading city in the industry," said Jesse Rothstein, CEO, ExtraHop. "Companies such as Amazon, Microsoft, and F5 Networks bring a wealth of talent to the Pacific Northwest, which has helped ExtraHop build a team capable of remarkable innovation. We're honored to have received this recognition among such an outstanding group of nominees and look forward to furthering the success of our tech community and its culture of innovation."
