Virtual Instruments Releases Industry’s First 16G Probe

Virtual Instruments

Virtual Instruments has announced the release of its 16G-capable Fibre Channel (FC) performance probe.

The company, a leading provider of infrastructure performance management (IPM) solutions to enterprises with mission-critical application infrastructures, says that the new release will provide IT teams with the critical, precise information they need to analyse their infrastructure’s response time.

Virtual Instrument's new FC performance probe is the industry’s first solution that offers real-time full 16G line-rate monitoring for storage area networks (SANs). It lets the user analyse and report on hundreds of metrics to provide comprehensive, accurate and vendor agnostic monitoring at the protocol level.

When combined with the company’s VirtualWisdom4 IPM platform, the probe delivers performance-based service-level agreement (SLA) management to meet the emerging requirement for increased operational transparency in the private cloud. It also offers detailed application I/O profiling so the customer can balance their IT workload accordingly as well as proactive problem identification so any issues can be resolved before infrastructure performance suffers.

Barry Cooks, vice president of engineering at Virtual Instruments, commented: “With the introduction of the ProbeFC-16G-24, Virtual Instruments is reinforcing its commitment to supporting the latest in SAN technology.

“We developed this solution to keep pace with our customers’ and the market’s requirements for technology investment protection and ongoing support of 16G Fibre Channel as global enterprises begin to upgrade their environments to the latest technology available.”
