Sydney-based PlexNet has become the first Australian reseller to offer Virtual Instruments solutions in Australia.

Virtual Instruments is an application-centric infrastructure performance management provider headquartered in the United States.

PlexNet, who specialises in networking, application, infrastructure and security testing and analysis, has been classified as the vendor’s newest value-added reseller and professional services partner.  

The partner will have full distribution rights for all of all Virtual Instruments’ solutions, including the VirtualWisdom infrastructure performance monitoring platform and the Load DynamiX Enterprise storage performance testing and validation platform, to Australia.

“We are excited about adding Virtual Instruments’ app-centric IPM products to our portfolio as they address a critical need for a vendor-agnostic performance monitoring and testing solutions for the emerging hybrid data centre,” PlexNet director of sales and technical services, Dom Fitzgibbon, said.

“Our experience is that customers require end-to-end visibility from the user to the storage systems and control of their digital service delivery.

"PlexNet has responded to our clients’ needs by partnering with Virtual Instruments to deliver the outcomes that customers need and expect."

In 2016, Virtual Instruments merged with storage performance analytics company, Load DynamiX. In October 2016, it acquired Xangati, a virtual and cloud infrastructure performance monitoring company.

Companies such as SingTel, Vodafone and AT&T use Virtual Instruments solutions globally.

“As we continue to expand globally, our goal is to work with highly regarded regional partners with proven capabilities to help customers make more intelligent deployment decisions and optimise their infrastructure investments,” Virtual Instruments executive vice president of worldwide sales, Sheen Khoury, said.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with PlexNet and our other partners across the globe to help them offer highly differentiated products and services that enable them to become vendor-independent trusted advisors to their customers.”

Virtual Instruments has its regional APAC HQ in Singapore.
