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.
