Press Release Summary:
Facilitating secure application delivery, NP-2000 for NetFlow appliance integrates NetFlow reporting and analysis capabilities in routers and large switches with NetSensory flow-based technology to provide details about application performance-response times. IT teams can identify applications on network and percentage of bandwidth they are consuming, users affected by performance issues, systems affected by virus or worm, and Internet usage.
Original Press Release:
Network Physics Partners with Crannog Software to Deliver NP-2000 for Netflow
Synergy of Cisco's NetFlow Technology and NetSensory Application Performance Insights Creates Unprecedented Control for Fast, Reliable and Secure Application Delivery
MOUNTAIN VIEW, CALIF., October 31, 2005 - Network Physics, the leader in application performance insight, today announces a strategic technology development partnership with Crannog Software, the fast-rising vendor of network optimization software. The partners have integrated Crannog's best-of-breed NetFlow technology with Network Physics' award-winning NetSensory technology to produce the NP-2000 for NetFlow. By combining the link-based visibility that NetFlow provides with the industry's fastest way to find and fix application response time problems, customers will now be able to gain deeper insight and control of their entire application delivery infrastructure.
"There are clear indications that NetFlow adoption is on the rise," says industry analyst Dennis Drogseth, vice president, Enterprise Management Associates (EMA). "As more vendors like Crannog Software and now Network Physics offer enhanced management software for reporting and analyzing NetFlow, more enterprises will elect to tap the NetFlow analysis and reporting capabilities inherent in their switches and routers. The technology development partnership between Crannog and Network Physics brings two clear industry innovators together to combine segment-specific, application-flow detail with service response, route information and security information from data center to data center across the WAN."
The NP-2000 for NetFlow is a powerful application performance management appliance that integrates the NetFlow reporting and analysis capabilities inherent in almost all routers and large switches from Cisco Systems and Cisco technology partner vendors with NetSensory flow-based technology to provide a level of detail about application performance-response times previously unavailable.
IT teams using the NP-2000 for NetFlow can easily and quickly identify applications on the network and the percentage of bandwidth they're consuming, the users or offices affected by performance issues, the systems affected by a virus or worm, the impact after introducing new users/applications/systems, Internet usage, and the applications that are "talking" to other applications. They can also ensure that service levels for critical traffic are being met, and they have a better tool for analyzing their carriers' costs.
"Forging partnerships with major players like Network Physics is not only a valuable recognition of the quality of our technology, it is also a key element in our growth strategy," says Philip Harragan, Crannog Software's CEO. Harragan adds, "Integrating NetFlow Tracker with NetSensory NP-2000 opens up another important route to market for us, while helping Network Physics add further value to its network performance insight solutions. We're delighted to be working with them."
The NetSensory NP-2000 for NetFlow is now available worldwide from Network Physics and its authorized channel partners. Pricing for the NP-2000 for NetFlow starts at $37,000. A workflow template for capturing best practices, NetSensory Insight(TM) for NetFlow, is also available. The NetSensory Insight for NetFlow software will integrate with stand-alone Crannog NetFlow Tracker and NetFlow Tracker V2 installations, as well as with the NetSensory NP-2000. Pricing for the NetSensory Insight for NetFlow starts at $8,000.
