Nastel Technologies Delivers Cost Savings and Flexibility with AutoPilot SaaS

Subscription-based application performance monitoring helps organizations to quickly and efficiently address regulatory, competitive and cost pressures

MELVILLE, NY-June 6, 2012-Nastel Technologies, a premier global provider of application performance monitoring solutions for mission-critical applications from the datacenter to the cloud, today introduced its AutoPilot® SaaS deployment option to offer enterprises a choice in how they deploy their application performance monitoring solution - on-premise or off and to help these organizations lower costs and gain more flexibility and control over distributed application environments.

Secured by CloudPrime's cloud-based connectivity solution and running in either Amazon EC2 or IBM SmartCloud, CloudPrime will establish a secure connection between the enterprises' network applications and the AutoPilot SaaS solution residing in the cloud allowing each access to the other as if they were on the same network. AutoPilot SaaS monitors and reports on the performance of composite applications consisting of web, legacy, and cloud-based components. AutoPilot SaaS can be used to monitor compliance delivering the transparency businesses need to meet regulatory requirements. It also provides real-time message tracking and end-to-end performance of applications, middleware messaging and transactions. The centerpiece of AutoPilot SaaS is Nastel's Complex Event Processing engine which provides low-latency analytics, easily handling the volume of transactions and event data from the largest customers in the world.

The AutoPilot SaaS solution covers a wide range of platforms including Java, .NET, WebSphere MQ, ESB and DataPower, TIBCO RV and EMS, Solace appliances and mainframe CICS, MQ and DB2.

AutoPilot SaaS enables companies to:

  • Improve their competitive position by being able to instantly analyze the performance of their composite applications and messaging infrastructures and determine the root cause of all abnormal behavior
  • Reduce costs by acquiring the power of a large datacenter monitoring solution without having to manage servers and upgrades
  • Move costs from CapEx to OpEx and free up budget

"Enterprise organizations face constant competitive pressure, have mandates to reduce operational costs and are plagued by a never ending series of regulatory challenges," said Julie Craig, research director, Enterprise Management Associates. "Nastel can help these firms through its exceptionally strong analytics and correlation capabilities and its ability to monitor most of the major middleware platforms. These capabilities can reduce the number and duration of outages, obviate the need for eyes-on-screen monitoring, and minimize the number of tools required for APM monitoring."

"The mounting pressures to control costs, drive innovation and remain competitive are top of mind for our clients right now," said Charley Rich, vice president of product management for Nastel. "Providing them with the option to move to a SaaS model for application performance monitoring while maintaining an equal level of functionality, visibility and support as traditional solutions enables greater flexibility and lowers the overall demand on IT staff."

"We are supporting our partner Nastel to encrypt private data for transit to the Cloud to ensure the highest quality, compliance, and efficiency of their SaaS offering" said Mari Tangredi, founder and vice-president for CloudPrime.

Key features of AutoPilot SaaS include:

  • Industry leading real-time analytics, driven by an integrated complex event processing (CEP) engine that supports de-duplication, suppression of alerts and avoidance of false positives;
  • In-depth reporting that includes historical key performance indicators (KPIs);
  • Automatic Stitching capabilities to track business transactions across multiple technologies and provide end-to-end visibility across Web and legacy tiers, including Java, .NET, WMQ and CICS;
  • A unified platform for monitoring all middleware, commercial and homegrown solutions, on a single pane of glass
