IT Operations teams are under the gun. They need to tackle a growing list of new internal and business projects while supporting all the existing applications that keep the business running. It's no easy task, but ExtraHop is here to help. Our solution provides IT operational intelligence, helping IT answer the question, "What is happening in my environment right now?" We aim to solve problems that have historically required multiple, disparate tools, and deliver a superset of multiple IT management disciplines, including APM, NPM, IPM, RUM, and BTM.
Our products are delivering on this vision, enabling our customers to spend more time innovating and less time fighting fires. We've built the most advanced solution on the market to provide unprecedented visibility into infrastructure and applications. For instance, our new EH8000 appliance features 20Gbps throughput and can analyze more than 400,000 transactions per second from L2-L7, providing correlated, cross-tier visibility that you can't get with point solutions. And our ExtraHop for AWS solution "does something that's not been possible before – offers visibility into how all parts of a customer's systems are performing in the cloud, "according to Cloud Computing and Virtualization Best of Interop judge Charles Babcock, Editor at Large, InformationWeek.
Thanks to new capabilities such as 20Gbps scalability in the EH8000 and advanced public cloud visibility in ExtraHop for AWS we've garnered some important industry recognition:
- Last night, at Interop Las Vegas, ExtraHop won Best of Interop in the Cloud Computing and Virtualization category. The judging panel, which was comprised of 16 award-winning IT editors and analysts, chose ExtraHop for AWS as the category winner for its unparalleled ability to take the guesswork out of monitoring cross-tier public cloud deployments. Uniquely suited to dynamic cloud environments, ExtraHop for AWS auto-discovers and auto-classifies all applications and infrastructure that are communicating over the network without requiring agents, upfront configuration, or manual device tagging. By continuously analyzing all AWS traffic, ExtraHop equips IT teams with the real-time operational intelligence needed to answer the question, "What is happening in my environment right now?" In addition, our EH8000 appliance was named a finalist in the Monitoring and Management category.
- Adding another couple feathers to our cap of awards, we were just named a Cool Vendor in Application Performance Monitoring by Gartner for our ability to provide a holistic view of performance across all tiers, including the network, web, database, VDI, and storage tiers. And we were also named an AlwaysOn OnDemand 100 Winner, a list that "represents a list of vigorous emerging and mature companies that are going beyond creating new business opportunities. The cloud infrastructure, SaaS, and on-demand marketplace is reinventing computing—how it's powered, where data is stored, and where and when we access it."
- Of course, technical prowess and innovation mean nothing if they can't be applied to solve real-world business problems. That's why we're excited that Jesse Rothstein, CEO of ExtraHop, and Sean Jacobsen, Director of IT Production Support for a leading online brokerage firm, will be discussing ExtraHop's operational-intelligence solution during a joint presentation at Interop. The pair will explain how the online brokerage firm has used ExtraHop's cross-tier visibility to improve application response times over 70 percent while transforming IT operations through a combination of people, process, and technology. Jacobsen is a 20-year IT operations veteran and will share how his team uses the ExtraHop platform to improve collaboration with application development, database, and network teams to proactively address performance and capacity issues.
Viva Las Vegas!
