Solve Your Network Performance Problems in Minutes… See for Yourself! by Team AppNeta August 15, 2011
These days practically every organization depends on multiple IP-based services, including Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and cloud-based applications, VoIP, video conferencing, virtual desktops and IP storage. All these critical services depend on network performance. Today’s IP-based services operate within a narrow Quality of Service (QoS) range. When network bandwidth, latency, jitter and/or packet loss parameters drift outside those tight limits, critical business services are abruptly disrupted – we’ve all experienced the frustration from dropped calls, stalled teleconference and slow network access to Citrix and virtualized desktops.
To deliver the service levels that modern IP-based business applications require — across a distributed infrastructure — network administrators need instant, real-time insight into all the key network performance problems and metrics from and at any location on the network. This enables them to pinpoint network problems accurately and rapidly. It is the only way to know what users are actually experiencing, and to verify QoS.
Traditionally, achieving this necessary level of insight into network performance required costly technology investments, as well as a high degree of process complexity for administrators. Few organizations can justify those kinds of capital expenses in today’s financial climate. Businesses are looking for rapid time-to-value on their IT investments;, this is the very reason that cloud computing, SaaS deployments and other IP-based services have become so popular so quickly in the first place.
Besides seeking rapid time-to-value, companies also need to know that the IT investments they make are proven and will generate a high return on investment (ROI). Many organizations are unwilling to deploy new IT management systems unless they are certain they will help solve real-world business problems and add real business value.
To address customers’ requirements for rapid time-to-value and verifiably high ROI, AppNeta recently launched PathView Cloud Trial Express. PathView Cloud enables network engineers and managed service providers (MSPs) to continuously monitor their networks and find and fix problems within minutes of deployment.
PathView Cloud’s network performance management capabilities include
- Real-time monitoring and analysis of performance for applications like VoIP, video conferencing and virtualized desktops
- Active troubleshooting of bandwidth utilization and QoS verification
- Advanced network performance assessment and reporting
- The ability to test and assess your network’s readiness for major infrastructure changes, such as deployment of VoIP, video conferencing or other IP-based services
The PathView Cloud TrialExpress offer includes a trial PathView microAppliance, weekly support workshops, and a one-on-one session with an AppNeta engineer. The trial period lasts fourteen days, and signup takes just 30 seconds online
