    UNIFIED CLOUD, NETWORK, SERVER & APPLICATION MONITORING

    Advantel Networks VantagePoint 360-t is a next-generation software solution for monitoring the performance of hybrid cloud and IT infrastructure in enterprise environments. It is ideal for today’s evolving IT environments transition to the cloud. Its state-of-the-art Service Container technology enables IT personnel and management to create unique virtual views of discrete IT services, and makes the alignment of infrastructure technology with business performance possible. VantagePoint 360-t is the only monitoring solution that combines an advanced service monitoring platform with powerful, flow-based troubleshooting capabilities for the fastest mean time to resolution.

     

    SERVICE CONTAINERS TECHNOLOGY

    VP 360-t’s Service Container technology enables users to organize and distribute hybrid IT infrastructure into logical, service-oriented views relevant to their business processes.

     

    HYBRID CLOUD MONITORING

    Advantel’s solutions supports the monitoring of public and private cloud environments such as AWS, vCloud Air, Azure, VMware, HyperV, Xen, UCS, vBlock and FlexPod environments.

     

    INTEGRATED DASHBOARD-TO-NETFLOW

    As an added feature, VP 360-t can also provide an integrated network flow collector. This provides seamless device-level monitoring for troubleshooting and analysis using flow and packet data.

     

    PREDICTIVE DATA ANALYTICS

    VP 360-t provides a predictive analytics capability that learns the behavior of IT components over time and automatically adjusts alert thresholds to reduce noise and isolate the cause of performance degradation in dynamic IT environments. This behavioral analysis can be applied to all underlying components of an IT or business service, creating a demand-based performance profile of an IT service.

     

    SCALABLE, DISTRIBUTED PROCESSING ARCHITECTURE

    The platform has fully distributed, real-time architecture that can scale to millions of metrics without performance degradation. It supports a distributed processing and data storage model with no centralized data warehouse which is a traditional bottleneck in other products.

     

    CORRELATION AND ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS ENGINE

    VP 360-t provides advanced root cause analysis (RCA) features that extend beyond traditional network level analysis.

     

    LOG AND EVENT MANAGER

    VP 360-t captures processes, archives and displays a variety of events such as SNMP Traps, Windows Events and Syslogs. It supports acknowledgement and annotation of events, suppression, de-duplication and correlation. Using patented technology, VP 360-t distributed DGE architecture, allows scaling to very large deployments. It also integrates with most enterprise ticketing systems out of the box.

     

    SLA MONITORING AND MEASUREMENT

    VP 360-t supports specification of SLAs for services and infrastructure in terms of defined metrics, such as, availability, latency, Committed Information Rate (CIR) and much more.

     

    TOPOLOGY DISCOVERY AND MAPPING

    VP 360-t automatically discovers applications, networks, servers, and systems on initial discovery, and the relationship between the different L2/L3 devices using technologies such as CDP, DHCP, ARP, ICMP, and route tables.

     

    INTEGRATED, MULTI-TENANT NETWORK CONFIGURATION MANAGEMENT (NCM)

    The solution includes an integrated, multi-tenant NCM module that supports a wide variety of network routers, switches, firewalls and load balancers for configuration management backup and restore. VP 360-t’s distributed DGE architecture allows backing up and restoring configuration files from network devices in remote locations and behind firewalls.

     

    REAL-TIME AND HISTORICAL REPORTING

    VP 360-t retrieves data upon request and generates reports and views based on the actual state of infrastructure. It also supports trend reports that provide short-term and long-term trend plots of imminent violations, and customized reports for fault, performance, threshold, message and inventory.

     

    MULTI-TENANT, FEDERATED SECURITY MODEL

    VP 360-t has a built-in federated security model which supports multiple departments, users or customers in using a single instance of the software. The flexible security model allows creating read-only or read-write users, administrative users within a department/ domain, or administrative users across departments/domains.

     

    MOBILE ACCESS

    VP 360-t offers mobile access to critical management information for administrators, service owners and operators and support touch-enabled drill-down menus that are easier to navigate on small device screens. Support is provided for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.

     

    APPLICATION PROCESS MONITOR

    Not only does VP 360-t monitor the health of servers and if individual processes are running, but it also collects the CPU, memory and disk i/o for individual processes for rapid analysis in the case of performance degradation of applications.

     

    CUSTOMIZABLE DASHBOARDS

    VP 360-t allows you to create dashboards and display intuitive graphs, tables and charts for any metric being tracked. Dashboards are updated in real-time and multiple dashboards can be created for performance of services and infrastructure.

     

    SUPPORT FOR WIDE RANGE OF INFRASTRUCTURE

    VP 360-t also has one of the largest signature libraries in the industry for out of the box discovery of applications, cloud and network infrastructure.

     

    OPEN API

    VP 360-t has a flexible, REST API for integrating with third-party applications such as billing systems, helpdesk and provisioning systems. The API allows creating custom monitors, notifications and integration with automation frameworks for cloud environments.
