eGEnterprise 5.6 Digs Deeper Into Infrastructures

Users commonly complain that their application performance delivery is too slow, and virtualization, cloud computing, and finger-pointing among admins representing competing vendors only makes the problem worse. In order to come up with a solution to this dilemma, eG Innovations has made it clear that its goal with eGEnterprise 5.6 is to take the user's perspective and provide deeper, end-to-end visibility into physical and virtual infrastructures.

According to eG Innovation CEO Srinivas Ramanathan, the current state of the art when it comes to infrastructure analysis is a fragmented, incompatible mix of products that are not user-friendly. Version 5.6 of his company's flagship product finds bottlenecks by employing a color-coded topology map, new, intuitive dashboards, automated metric aggregation, improved performance prediction, advanced auto-baselining and tight integration with Microsoft Systems Center Operations Manager 2012.

Other new features include enhanced virtualization and cloud support -- including monitoring support for VMware vCloud Director -- more comprehensive coverage for databases, storage, Active Directory, virtualization, deeper visibility into Java transactions, and NetFlow monitoring.

Also present in 5.6 is what eG Innovations calls "easy and automated root-cause diagnosis," which features "root-cause diagnosis extensions for cloud environments, auto-discovery of business service topologies, improved Active Directory integration, monitoring configuration, and personalized VM views for use by cloud providers providing managed services."

The company maintains that eGEnterprise 5.6 provides a easily measureable ROI that pays for itself in months. Currently available, its subscription fees begin at $50 per server per month in the U.S. On-premise perpetual licensing is also available.
