ExtraHop Networks, a provider of network-based application performance management (APM) solutions, introduced its virtual appliance for APM, the EH1000v.

The new appliance furthers ExtraHop’s commitment to building the fastest APM solutions available by providing real-time transaction analysis at up to 1Gbps speeds for applications running in virtual and cloud environments—more than 10 times faster than competing products. As a virtualized version of the company’s passive, network-based ExtraHop Application Delivery Assurance system, the EH1000v delivers a small-footprint solution for branch-office deployments and offers deep, end-to-end application visibility for virtualized environments.

The EH1000v virtual appliance lowers IT infrastructure requirements for monitoring network and application performance across geographically distributed environments. In line with Gartner’s prediction that 20 percent of companies will own no IT hardware assets by next year, the EH1000v eliminates the need to ship and install hardware for each geographic location. With more companies using virtualized systems in remote-office applications, the new virtual appliance from ExtraHop Networks will help these organizations deploy and remotely administer a powerful monitoring solution for branch-office deployments that also can monitor traffic within virtualized environments.

As they have increasingly virtualized their systems, many organizations have lost visibility into transactions passing between virtual machines on the same physical host, leading to a growing blind spot for heavily virtualized organizations. According to an InformationWeek survey, nearly 50 percent of companies using APM solutions run more than half of their applications in virtualized environments, creating a significant amount of traffic that enterprises cannot see on the network. The EH1000v can monitor traffic that passes only through virtual switches and restore deep visibility into applications running in such environments, even those with large traffic volumes among multiple virtual machines.

“While server virtualization offers many benefits such as flexibility, scalability, and lower cost, it also can limit visibility into virtualized environments,” says Jesse Rothstein, CEO and co-founder, ExtraHop Networks. “In these cases, the physical limitations of many APM solutions present obstacles to monitoring application performance. The EH1000v gives companies a small-footprint solution that helps them to get around these roadblocks and realize the benefits of virtual and cloud technologies without compromising application performance.”
