REDWOOD SHORES, CA - Jun 2, 2011 – Precise, the global leader in transaction performance management, today announced a revolution in the way customers can get started with end-to-end management of their enterprise systems. Using a lightweight virtual appliance, Precise customers can deploy TPM within minutes, making it ideal for managing new private cloud applications.
Unlike previous generations of application performance technology, which require the provisioning, deployment and configuration of a new server, the new Precise Virtual Appliance is simply downloaded, named and made available to the network.
The rise of virtualization has made virtual appliances popular, due to their self-sufficiency and rapid installation. With this announcement, Precise customers can become productive with basic TPM metrics within hours, achieving a return-on-investment in some cases within a few days. The Precise Virtual Appliance is particularly useful to customers with dynamic private cloud applications, giving them the agility needed by their complex environments.
"CIOs and IT directors are realizing that cloud applications have new monitoring and management requirements. Because of the dynamic nature of public and private cloud, traditional solutions designed for physical static environments are no longer adequate," said Julie Craig, Research Director, Enterprise Management Associates. "Virtual appliances are bright spots in such environments, as they can be deployed easily and with minimal installation and configuration hassle. When deployed in the cloud, they also provide the visibility into cloud environments that is necessary to trace, track, and monitor virtualized applications."
"The Precise Virtual Appliance means customers can plug TPM into existing enterprise applications and be up-and-running with TPM, managing enterprise applications, the same day," said Assaf Sagi, product manager for Composite Applications at Precise. "Customers can now rapidly build in-depth view of transactions within new cloud applications, by simply plugging in more Precise capabilities and without disrupting their businesses."
Precise helps over 1500 customers worldwide manage Quality of Service (QoS) of their mission critical applications. With innovative Transaction Performance Management (TPM) products and managed services, Precise TPM supports all major packaged applications, custom applications, databases and storage devices – running on physical, virtual and Cloud infrastructure.
