Nastel Features New Partnerships, Client Wins At Gartner Symposium

Melville, Long Island-based Nastel Technologies used Gartner Symposium/ITxpo, a conference for CIOs and senior IT executives being held in Orlando this week, to feature recently announced partnerships and customer wins for its application performance monitoring and business transaction performance solutions.

The first deal involves a joint marketing partnership between Nastel and Coradiant, Inc., a provider of solutions used to manage, optimize and troubleshoot web applications.  According to a press release issued this week, the integration between Nastel AutoPilot® and Coradiant TrueSight® “will result in end user performance visibility, seamlessly integrated with AutoPilot’s deep-dive application and business transaction performance analysis.  This will provide Nastel and Coradiant customers with the visibility, predictive problem analysis and high transaction performance they require from their complex, multi-tier applications.”

Nastel also recently announced a technology partnership agreement with Kratos Networks, a provider of network monitoring and management solutions.  By integrating Nastel’s AutoPilot® M6 technology with Kratos’ NeuralStar® and dopplerVUE® network event management products, the two companies aim to provide IT managers with a real-time, end-to-end view of the performance and availability of all network, application, server, services and business transactions in dynamic, customizable dashboards.  According to a press release issued last week, IT managers can use the combined solutions to:

  • troubleshoot and isolate the root cause of problems between the network, applications and servers;
  • predict potential IT failures and latency problems and take proactive action to avoid them;
  • filter alerts and warnings across network and application domains; and
  • automatically resolve many IT issues without human involvement.

Finally, Nastel announced that its AutoPilot® software solution has been selected by SKY® Mexico (Innova) to monitor its Direct-to-Home (DTH) satellite television service.  According to a recently published case study, SKY needed an effective business transaction management system enabling end-to-end visibility of their infrastructure and business applications including: enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), billing, interactive voice response (IVR), provisioning and service level agreement (SLA) compliance.  At a Gartner Symposium breakout session today (Tuesday, Oct. 19) at 2:30 p.m., attendees can learn how Sky utilized Nastel AutoPilot for application performance monitoring and business transaction performance to improve the quality of service offered to its customers.

Nastel Launches Virtual Appliance Version of AutoPilot M6 Suite of Application Performance Management Solutions

Melville, Long Island-based Nastel Technologies announced in a press release today the availability of a virtual appliance version of its AutoPilot® M6 suite of application performance management and business transaction performance solutions.

According to the company, its AutoPilot M6, TransactionWorks™, AutoPilot for Middleware and prebuilt APM governance policies now will be available preinstalled in a virtual software appliance, promoting rapid deployment, quick provisioning and high-availability for mission critical environments.

AutoPilot M6 gives IT professionals, enterprise architects and application owners what Nastel calls “360° situational awareness” of the entire IT environment, including both transactional and operational data in a unified business context.  The solution, with its built-in complex event processing engine, enables management teams to identify and fix problems—even predict and prevent them—before they compromise SLA or other compliance standards.

The AutoPilot M6 virtual appliance includes application, transaction and middleware performance management in a single VMware image running a Linux Guest OS.  Nastel claims that deployment can be done in seconds, cutting both time and costs associated with implementation.  Standard server management policies for virtualization can also be applied.

With the new virtual appliance, replacement and maintenance on hardware platforms running AutoPilot can be performed without service interruption, according to Nastel. The AutoPilot M6 virtual appliance along with its built-in grid support also enables easy failover for 24x7x365 mission critical environments and on-demand capacity as load increases.
