How is possible to ensure an adequate performance in increasingly critical and complex business services, using new generation tools extremely intuitive and effective, and above all able to speak the language of business?

All the companies now recognize the critical value of their IT services, and the attention of all the CIO is focused on the challenges of the alignment of IT with business needs, innovation, ability to do more with fewer resources available, the need to offer a real and measurable value.

These challenges become much more complex when it refers to services and applications distributed or still more when we penetrate in the virtualization of the Cloud Computing, up to the dematerialization of services, applications and processes. The applications transformation, from monolithic objects to an aggregate set of distributed components, has made these services more agile and more functional than the dynamic nature of the business, but at the same time more complex to control.

The solution EGEnterprise for APM in physical, virtual or hybrid

On the one hand virtualization brings many well-established benefits,  but it is also true that the adoption of these architectures has produced new challenges in control and management areas.

In a "physical" enviroment a problem on a machine is more easily identifiable and it has anyway a limited impact.

In a "virtual" environment is much more difficult to identify the cause of a problem and especially
predict impacts.

Already during the provisioning of virtual machines it is possible to have mistakes that can have a serious impact on the operation of other virtual machines, compromising the performance of several applications and services with consequent disruption for the final users.

The objectives of agility and cost-effectiveness that characterize all IT organizations induce often the same to adopt more than one virtualization platform, further complicating the management challenge, because every platform is so different engineered from the others and it is equipped with its own dministrative tools, which require the adoption of a specific skill.

Energent Products Division supports its customers by offering a market leader solution such as EGEnterprise Monitoring of EGInnovations, which boasts certifications as VMware Ready and Citrix Ready and the support of as many as 7 virtualization technologies.

The solution is based on an exclusive monitoring technology that allows to obtain both an "external"  view of virtualized infrastructures, and an "internal" view. The view "external" allows you to keep a check on the resources managed by "Hypervisor" function to understand the use that the "virtual machine" are making of these resources.

Other hand, the "internal" view  provides a complete detail about the behavior of a single "virtual machine ", identifying if the applications that run on these machines are using the resources of the same. If the "external" view is able to provide an immediate perception of the level of operation of virtualized environments, the "internal" one instead provides an indispensable support for the activities of identification of the problems and their causes, as well as users are using virtualized applications.
