SevOne Set to Serve Insight to Software-Defined Scene


May 23, 2016

The data center is software’s most recent “meal.” Physical infrastructure is giving way to software-based solutions capable of greater flexibility, cost savings and performance. Study after study hammers this point home, and as network infrastructure is virtualized software is steering the ship. While automation is key in this virtualization, it is mission critical to have transparency in network performance. Addressing this demand is SevOne’s Digital Infrastructure Platform that promises to provide the level of insight necessary.

The platform now includes SevOne 5.6, SevOne Performance Log Appliance 2.1, support for Amazon Web Services Virtual Private Cloud, Viptela SD-WAN, VMware vCenter, Cisco ACI, Docker and more. The goal of SevOne’s enhancements is to bring value to software-based deployments.

“As companies deploy services in a software-defined world, it’s critical for them to understand, in real time, how these services and the underlying physical and virtual infrastructure they run on are performing,” said Jim Duffy, Senior Networking Analyst, 451 Research. “When companies have real-time infrastructure management, analysis and alerting, like that now provided by SevOne, operational insight across the infrastructure is possible.”

The upgraded offering provides real-time troubleshooting with metrics, flows and logs at scale; live maps with improved visualization and reporting, software-based insights into infrastructure, scalable SD-WAN support, management of software-defined and cloud-based digital infrastructure, native Cisco ACI integration and flow alerting.

“Companies are well into their journeys with next-generation virtualized environments to accelerate their businesses, yet they don’t have the required level of operational insight,” said Jack Sweeney, CEO, SevOne. “The enhancements to the SevOne Platform give companies unprecedented business agility by allowing them to proactively manage more of their digital infrastructure, visualize and report in real time, and troubleshoot using logs at scale.”

Complexity is a necessary evil of innovation, and as development continues to steer the software-defined ship it is more important than ever to have a finger on the pulse of the network. Management systems have to provide visibility and insight into the multifarious nature of the next generation network, and the solutions there in.

Day 2, Cisco Live! 2017

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
