Performance Monitoring of Virtual Server and Desktop Infrastructure Drives Rapid Growth
Philadelphia, Pa—February 15th, 2012—Goliath Technologies, a leading provider of systems management software for hybrid, physical and virtual IT environments, announced today that the company experienced record growth in 2012. License revenues increased by 125% on a year over year basis and over 170 new customers were added.
“We are in the middle of a paradigm shift. As applications are being migrated to virtual servers’ en-masse, there is a need for enterprise monitoring solutions that provide visibility into all layers of the virtual stack. Legacy products don’t work well in virtual environments and the new monitoring technologies designed for the virtual environment only utilize the hypervisor API, which doesn’t provide a lens into the applications running on the guest machines, guest OS or hardware,” said Thomas Charlton, Chairman and CEO of Goliath Technologies. “An administrator either has to force fit a legacy product or deploy a virtual-only solution and contend with blind spots where the application, OS and host are concerned. Companies select Goliath Technologies over other solutions because we solve this problem with an enterprise class performance monitoring technology that was designed to provide performance metrics on the hardware, host hypervisor, guest OS and applications on those guests in a single console. This is why we added two to three customers each week.”
“We used N-able for several years, but as our business grew and our market evolved, so did our needs for high-technology tools that support our clients’ ever changing, complex infrastructures,” said Frank Jones, President of CPU. “We needed a product that offered the ability to monitor, analyze and report on the performance of XenServer, XenApp and XenDesktop at remote customer sites. We evaluated SolarWinds, Nimsoft, GFI, Kaseya, Remote Assist, PacketTrap, eG Innovations and attempted to work with N-able. Our extensive search led us to Goliath Technologies. Their product manages the required virtual server, application and desktop elements, but the way it’s architected to accomplish these elements is what separated them from other offerings. Their Intelligent Agent, for instance, will save hours of setup time because of automated deployment. It also provides extensive data collection and reporting, remediation and log management, all essential to meeting our SLA’s.”
Raja Jadeja, VP of Technical Operations, offered his take. “The MonitorIT product is really one of the only complete monitoring solutions available today. My customers need a product that will give them visibility into every aspect of their infrastructure and most products are designed to monitor only one or two elements in the IT environment. This creates silos of visibility, which spell trouble if a problem occurs, because it is difficult to determine causality and remediate quickly.” He continued, “If you look at many offerings, you will see they are designed to monitor only virtual environments and therefore are limited to only metrics gathered from the hypervisor. Our customers know that the physical infrastructure must be monitored as well and they want to purchase one product to accomplish this task. MonitorIT gives them this capability.”
About Goliath Technologies
Goliath Technologies is focused on systems management software for IT organizations that address the evolving challenges of managing physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. These hybrid environments require solutions that are scalable, cost effective and easy to use. Many legacy technologies are difficult to deploy and expensive to maintain and, as a result, are not well suited for this new paradigm. Inexpensive or free technologies, though easy to deploy and use, lack enterprise functionality and scalability. Both are slow to add features that are required to support physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures. At Goliath, we provide products that fill this gap with the right combination of scalability and functionality at a reasonable cost that embrace the complexities of virtualization and cloud computing. Headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, our software is used by customers worldwide including ADP, ING Direct, MindShift, Thomson Reuters and Shell. Learn more today at https://goliathtechnologies.com/
