Entuity Takes Aim At Enterprises, Services Providers

Entuity this week plans to unveil the latest version of its infrastructure management software for enterprises and service providers.

The product, Eye of the Storm 2.7, provides network fault, performance and inventory management, giving MSPs and systems integrators a way to identify overused and underused assets in their customers' networks, said Jeremy Tracey, co-founder and vice president of corporate strategy at Entuity, New York.

Vanguard Managed Solutions, a Mansfield, Mass.-based MSP, uses Eye of the Storm 2.7 to deliver Careguard, a network management service it launched in March, said Laura Whitcher, the company's director of services marketing.

Entuity's Tracey: Version 2.7 can help flag overused and underused network assets.

"It helps us work as consultants by recognizing trends in utilization," Whitcher said. Vanguard can make recommendations to customers about adding or redeploying infrastructure based on the data gathered by Eye of the Storm, she added.

Version 2.7 adds management capabilities for routers and frame relay switches,tracking metrics such as memory use and IP packet throughput for routers,and brings permanent virtual circuit (PVC) traffic profiling and congestion monitoring for frame relay switches. Previous versions supported Layer 2 switch LAN infrastructure, Tracey said.

Entuity later this year plans to add support for ATM switches, and in the future expects to add support for technology such as VoIP gateways, SAN switches and VPN devices, he said.

The upgrade is built on a new extensible management kernel called StormWorks, a platform Entuity developed to gather, store and present network data.

Pricing for Eye of the Storm 2.7, available now, is based on the number of managed objects and starts at about $50,000 for a small to midsize network, according to the company.
