DataSynapse Launches its VersaVision™ Software, the First Commercial Product to Provide Visibility, Analytics and Reporting for Service and Demand Virtualisation Infrastructures

London - 18 September 2007

DataSynapse, the global provider of application virtualisation software, today announced its VersaVision™ software, the first commercial product that provides comprehensive visibility, analytics and reporting for service and demand virtualisation infrastructures – enabling better service level management, capacity planning and fine-grained total cost of ownership analysis of application services.

A majority of enterprises have lacked correlated analytics and visibility into their grid and virtualisation infrastructures. DataSynapse’s VersaVision is the first commercial solution that solves this common challenge. It provides the necessary insight into demand and service performance, a rich reporting infrastructure and the necessary day-to-day insight needed to continuously meet service level agreements (SLAs).

“As virtualisation becomes more widely adopted, enterprises are looking for simple ways to get the visibility and intelligence they need to manage and fully utilise these technologies,” said Milind Govekar, research vice president, Gartner, Inc. “With a holistic view of activity, demand and usage in a virtualisation environment, organisations can get detailed insight into where services are meeting or failing to meet SLAs and make quick capacity and infrastructure adjustments based on need – increasing business agility, scalability and efficiency.”

The VersaVision solution provides historical and real-time analytics and reporting on services in high-demand application infrastructures, delivering clear insight into utility or shared service environments. The result is a holistic view of the operating environment that is focused entirely on management and efficient delivery of business services. VersaVision also enables organisations to make capacity decisions based on business needs. By reporting on activity, demand and application usage, VersaVision increases both business and IT agility and maximizes scalability and existing capacity.

“Our VersaVision solution delivers insight into where and when enterprises are failing to meet established SLAs and where IT departments need to prioritise grid resources to meet SLAs,” said Jamie Bernardin, CTO and co-founder, DataSynapse. “Understanding application and resource consumption in a virtualised environment is basically impossible without sophistication in the collection, enrichment and correlation of the raw data. In addition to having this capability, VersaVision is an extensible platform – allowing customers to plug in data sources from other virtualisation technologies.”

DataSynapse products are leveraged by the world’s leading organisations to create real-time infrastructure that optimise IT resources so that service levels remain predictable and consistent, despite unpredictable computing demands. DataSynapse’s other flagship product offerings, GridServer® and FabricServer™, intelligently match available server supply with application demand, allowing organisations to gain control of complex enterprise applications. Users experience improved agility, reduced costs and enhanced quality of service – quickly and efficiently.
