US-based IT management software vendor, SolarWinds, has entered the applications performance and virtualisation management game.
The company has launched its Application Performance Monitor (APM) product and acquired virtualisation management software business, Hyper9, as part of its push into those two markets.
Virtualisation expertise would compliment the APM product range, according to the vendor.
The vendor is already established in the IT network and storage management sector.
It had previously offered an applications monitoring add-on module for its Orion network performance management range but SolarWind APM is the first standalone product in this space.
SolarWinds APM gives visibility into critical IT services, applications and server performance.
While certain aspects of the product may be localised for the Australian market, SolarWind Australia general manager, Doug Hibberd, said the go-to-market strategy will not vary much from country to country.
“Technology, infrastructure and management challenges for network and system administrators are very consistent across the board,” he said. “The APM is a transferable type of solution.”
