Fluke Networks Bridges the Ever-Widening Application and Network Performance Visibility Gap with an Integrated Solution

Increasing pervasiveness of wireless networks and heightened end-user expectations drive need for holistic, nimble approach to network management and troubleshooting

EVERETT, Wash., April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluke Networks today announced that Visual TruView™, its award-winning Application-Aware Network Performance Management solution (AANPM), and the OptiView XG™, its flagship network analysis tablet, have been integrated to provide the industry's first AANPM solution capable of analyzing an enterprise's entire network infrastructure—including wired and wireless, application performance and device interconnectivity, and in-depth path analysis all the way to an end user's specific device.

Fluke Networks Bridges the Ever-Widening Application and Network Performance Visibility Gap with an Integrated Solution

Instead of the typical back-and-forth checking of separate tools with multiple user interfaces and sign-ons to find and resolve problems, network engineers now have a unified view of wired and wireless performance across the entire organization, including remote sites and applications delivered across cloud, carrier and enterprise networks. Using Visual TruView, not only can they quickly identify if a problem exists, they can also isolate where in the path of delivery the problem may be hiding and effectively troubleshoot it, no matter where it occurs.

Today's IT has increasingly shifted toward application-centric, service-oriented operations, and the need for application awareness within performance monitoring and management technologies has skyrocketed as a result. End user expectations have also risen sharply in line with their use of smart devices, mobile applications and streaming media. While end users may blame "the network" for any difficulties they encounter, the actual problem may reside elsewhere. Fluke Networks introduced its original AANPM solution, Visual TruView, in 2013 to help IT teams find and resolve performance problems regardless of where in the delivery path they arise.

By extending Visual TruView's capabilities via tight integration with OptiView XG, Fluke Networks is leveraging its proven capabilities in network analysis and troubleshooting to provide greater visibility into remote network connectivity and the health of all components in the application/service delivery path. This approach effectively expands the traditional definition of AANPM.

"The new solution from Fluke Networks brings two advanced, best-in-class products together to address the challenge of truly effective end-to-end AANPM visibility," said Jim Frey, vice president at Enterprise Management Associates. "Organizations who embrace this newly combined solution stand to gain substantial benefits in terms of increased operations effectiveness, shorter Mean Time to Repair, and improved ROI on their network management tools investments."

Typically deployed in the datacenter, Visual TruView can be installed as a standalone appliance or as part of a multi-appliance distributed configuration, while OptiView XG can be deployed as an endpoint at remote sites or in a centralized location. This deployment flexibility is particularly useful now that the two appliances are integrated. Depending on the problem they are trying to solve, network engineers can take the OptiView XG to virtually anywhere and have it share data with Visual TruView, which streamlines troubleshooting application performance and end-user experience issues. This means that—for the first time—organizations now have fully centralized AANPM visibility with detailed local visibility across both wired and wireless networks.

An added benefit of TruView's flexible deployment is its ability to grow with the enterprise. While a mid-sized organization may need only one TruView appliance, it can easily add more units to adapt to changing network requirements.

Visual TruView has been recognized as a best-in-class solution and was recently awarded a "Leader" standing in Gartner's inaugural Magic Quadrant for Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (AANPM is also known as NPMD). TruView was ranked as the best Hybrid AANPM solution and Value Leader by Enterprise Management Associates and has received numerous other industry awards.

"Visual TruView is the first solution of its kind, delivering complete application and network performance management in a truly unified way," said Daryle DeBalski, vice president and general manager of the Fluke Networks Visual business unit. "When end users are frustrated by application performance or other IT resources not performing as expected, IT has to have an answer—and fast. By integrating Visual TruView with OptiView XG, Fluke Networks is helping network engineering and operations pros shift how they solve performance problems away from finger-pointing and toward more effective collaboration."

Thanks to Docker and the DevOps revolution, microservices have emerged as the new way to build and deploy applications — and there are plenty of great reasons to embrace the microservices trend. If you are going to adopt microservices, you also have to understand that microservice architectures have many moving parts. When it comes to incident management, this presents an important difference between microservices and monolithic architectures. More moving parts mean more complexity to monitor an...
As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...
"Plutora provides release and testing environment capabilities to the enterprise," explained Dalibor Siroky, Director and Co-founder of Plutora, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
You often hear the two titles of "DevOps" and "Immutable Infrastructure" used independently. In his session at DevOps Summit, John Willis, Technical Evangelist for Docker, covered the union between the two topics and why this is important. He provided an overview of Immutable Infrastructure then showed how an Immutable Continuous Delivery pipeline can be applied as a best practice for "DevOps." He ended the session with some interesting case study examples.
When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Microservices (μServices) are a fascinating evolution of the Distributed Object Computing (DOC) paradigm. Initial design of DOC attempted to solve the problem of simplifying developing complex distributed applications by applying object-oriented design principles to disparate components operating across networked infrastructure. In this model, DOC “hid” the complexity of making this work from the developer regardless of the deployment architecture through the use of complex frameworks, such as C...

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
