The breakthrough new release of VirtualWisdom eliminates these obstacles by holistically monitoring, analysing and optimising the health, utilisation, capacity and performance of IT infrastructure within the context of the application. VirtualWisdom discovers and maps applications to the infrastructure to understand where each application lives and how it behaves on top of the infrastructure, in addition to discerning the business value and SLA tier of each application. Once this end-to-end visibility is established, VirtualWisdom then applies real-time, AI-based analytics that include machine learning, statistical analysis, heuristics and expert systems, allowing enterprises to ensure the performance and availability of the mission-critical applications across their highly complex hybrid data centres.
By leveraging Virtual Instruments’ highly scalable wire and machine data instrumentation and app-centric analytics, the new VirtualWisdom6 platform delivers four key capabilities: Application Service Assurance; Predictive Capacity Management; Workload Infrastructure Balancing; and Problem Resolution and Avoidance. These complementary capabilities enable organisations to proactively identify and resolve infrastructure-related performance, capacity and utilisation issues that are impacting business-critical applications, which removes the need for costly reactive firefighting that is the hallmark of traditional IT war rooms.
“Even in today’s age of digital transformation and rapid innovation, one of the most consistent pain points for enterprises is their lack of visibility and control over the performance of their mission-critical infrastructure,” said Paul Bevan, Research Director at Bloor Research. “To meet their customers’ ever-increasing expectations for always-on, high-performing apps and services, enterprises need to break down silos and gain full control of their application service delivery – and that starts with holistic visibility across the entire infrastructure. The app-centric and cross-domain approach of VirtualWisdom provides a new way for enterprises to collaborate – across the entire organisation – to ensure optimal performance, availability and utilisation of their IT infrastructures.”
Key features of the new version of VirtualWisdom include:
“Most enterprises face an uphill battle in trying to proactively manage and automate their hybrid data centres because their organisations have been built in a siloed approach using legacy monitoring technologies,” said Philippe Vincent, CEO of Virtual Instruments. “As a result, when a business-critical application experiences a problem that cannot be immediately remediated, the enterprise retreats to the IT war room to begin an expensive, inefficient and contentious trouble-shooting process. The new VirtualWisdom platform ends that silo-centric finger-pointing by helping our customers collaborate via a shared context across the entire infrastructure stack in the context of each application. This enables the enterprise to gain control of application service delivery and restore enterprise IT’s ability to move the business forward and innovate.”
