Entuity Releases New Network Management Solution, Refines Functionality and Adds Tech Goodies

By Miguel Leiva-Gomez, TMCnet Contributor

Entuity (News - Alert) just released the latest version of its well-known network management solution. The newest version, called Entuity 13, is more than a simple service pack update. This version has re-vamped its core to include a number of functional improvements and updates to its technology. Entuity has been doing a good job so far as far as timely releases are concerned, consistently keeping its customers on the edge with their networking infrastructures.

Entuity 13 will now allow customers to drag and drop their network endpoints into different associations, meaning that they'll be able to update network maps a lot more easily. The new version also includes custom topology maps for quick and easy integration. Reporting is now smarter, allowing customers to plan things like CPU capacity, memory capacity, and port bandwidth. Metering resources helps one understand where applications need to move to compensate for an overly-stressed machine. The UI also got a work-up, with administrators now able to put in their own custom dashboards.

"Network operators and administrators don't have a lot of spare time these days," said Petr Dvorak, senior project manager at Entuity. "It's always gratifying if we can do something to help save them some time and effort by automating or simplifying as much as we can. Entuity 13 continues along this path with wide-ranging enhancements in a number of key areas that benefit from such automated features."

Speaking of time-saving, Entuity 13 now includes the possibility of writing more tasks into automated scripts. This way, a couple of clicks can set up a complete network without having to fill out something akin to a tax return. Along with this, the new solution now includes Entuity's Integrated Flow Analysis solution without any added cost. This will help IT teams diagnose and solve bandwidth issues across the board in a very pristine and efficient manner.

"Entuity actively listens to all customer feedback while tightly honing its development schedule to provide two predictable major software releases per year," said Jim Frey, managing research director at Enterprise Management Associates. "This tight schedule and willingness to listen to customer needs goes a long way toward keeping operators abreast of the latest network technology."
