RESTON, Va., Oct. 13, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ScienceLogic, the leader in hybrid IT monitoring, today announced a host of advancements in support of monitoring next generation software-defined data centers, by introducing a suite of new PowerApps, specific to Cisco technologies.
PowerApps are free software extensions for the ScienceLogic platform that include automation for data collection, eventing, alarming, reporting and the delivery of dynamic dashboards, that help you see more and make decisions faster. They collect key performance, configuration and asset data for the entire IT stack, across a variety of technologies.
“Next generation data centers are characterized by growing adoption of software-defined technologies, converged infrastructure, and private clouds,” explained Dave Link, CEO, ScienceLogic. “ScienceLogic provides the broadest coverage across next gen data center technologies from a single monitoring platform. As our customers adopt these new technologies, ScienceLogic remains at the forefront, helping them ensure ultimate IT service delivery.”
According to research from analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), organizations struggle with cross-domain visibility into the performance of these software-defined technologies. “End-to-end monitoring and troubleshooting across physical and virtual network elements has emerged as a chief concern,” said Shamus McGillicuddy, Senior Network Analyst at EMA. “For example, our research found that 60% to 70% of early SDN adopters determined that their existing network planning, engineering, monitoring, and troubleshooting tools do not fully support SDN.”
