Application Awareness Pays Off for SevOne

By Tim McElligott Comments

Enterprise Management Associates research director Jim Frey gave a significant nod to SevOne this week by designating its performance application solution as having the Most Innovative Architecture.

EMA is an IT and data management research and consulting firm. The firm’s EMA Radar Report titled, EMA Radar for Application-Aware Network Performance Management (ANPM) for Q3 2010, also ranked SevOne in the “Strong Value” category for being loaded with ANPM capabilities, ease of deployment and administration, and cost efficiency.

Frey said the SevOne PAS features an innovative and unique peer-to-peer approach to distributing the collection and retention of the massive volumes of data that ANPM solutions can generate.

“I was impressed by the product’s best-in-class scale for flow record collection and lightning-fast viewing and reporting enterprise-wide, and it was one of the most open approaches to gathering and incorporating third-party data sources of any reviewed in this study,” he said.

EMA’s ANPM Radar Report was created to assist IT professionals in selecting the right network performance management products. SevOne was one of the 20 leading vendors in this space that were selected to be included and evaluated based on key criteria defined by EMA.

According to the report, one of the major challenges facing any ANPM solution is scalability for data collection, data analysis, and data presentation/reporting. SevOne employs a distributed, peer-to-peer approach to address this challenge.

SevOne PAS is among the highest capacity solutions available for NetFlow/xFlow. It’s other primary attributes are its highly parallelized SNMP polling engine, and the solution’s ability to generate reports against massive data stores at “Google-esque” speeds.

SevOne was founded in 2005 and provides a distributed network performance management solution and Performance Appliance Solution solutions for enterprises, cloud and service providers, cable MSOs, and government organizations.
