Zyrion's performance-management and monitoring technology maps components of the cloud to supported business services.
Zyrion announced the
availability of its expanded Business Service Container Technology in its
Traverse enterprise-network-management platform. The company said the addition
of this enhanced capability within Traverse is designed to enable IT
organizations to more effectively monitor their private- and public-cloud
Traverse is available for
download on Zyrion's Website or via one of Zyrion's authorized resale partners.
A 30-day trial or demo can also be accessed via the company's Website.
Business-service containers allow different departments and users to create
views of the IT infrastructure that align with their roles. Most significantly,
the Business Service Container model is overlaid on top of Traverse's topology
discovery/display model to provide service-relevant topology views, reduce alarm
floods and enable rapid root-cause analysis of service-performance degradation
"Business Service Container technology is the key innovation within the
Traverse platform that enables BSM [business-service management] and
service-oriented IT monitoring, " said Vikas Aggarwal, CEO of Zyrion. "It
enables linking business services to the underlying IT infrastructure, and
allows understanding the impact on business services when problems occur within
"We continue to make significant
investments in enhancing BSM-relevant capabilities in our solution, given that
over 80 percent of our customers utilize the BSM features in our product, and
in almost all cases, senior managers are actively using the BSM technology and
dashboards on a regular basis," he continued.
Zyrion's performance-management and monitoring technology enables mapping the
different components of the cloud to supported business services. Zyrion's
monitoring approach starts by first looking at the performance and availability
of business services, and then the underlying components within the cloud-computing
Business-service containers within the Traverse platform are flexible,
automated objects that represent business services in an organization. They
allow an organization to create logical, business-oriented views of the overall
physical and virtualized computing network. Users can define different
service-level agreements for different containers, create fault-tolerant redundant
models within a container and have nested containers with cascading alarms.
Aggarwal said traditional approaches to performance monitoring focus only on
the individual nodes and components in the IT infrastructure. "Given that cloud
infrastructure is a shared resource, individual technical performance indicators
taken in isolation are not as meaningful," he said. "Zyrion helps organizations
holistically monitor the performance of business services instead."
