The unique scalability of InMon's sFlow solution makes it the ideal choice for monitoring the fastest of data center networks
Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) October 28, 2009
PEER 1 Network Enterprises, Inc. (TSX: PIX), the global online business hosting provider, today announced a collaboration with InMon, the leading traffic monitoring solution for high-speed networks, to provide precise bandwidth measurement and analysis capability.
PEER 1 will deploy the industry standard sFlow® network monitoring technology and InMon's Traffic Sentinel, in all of its data centers to provide an industry leading bandwidth billing solution for its Managed Hosting customers.
Bandwidth usage is measured on a per-IP address basis, so PEER 1 is able to ignore traffic occurring inside the data center, and provide precise traffic charges to its customers in a way that is not possible through per-port or physical-layer network traffic monitoring.
For PEER 1 customers, the InMon-powered network traffic monitoring and analysis is accessible in real time through the online customer portal with customizable graphs and downloadable data.
Ted Smith, SVP of Operations at PEER 1 said: "We believe our customers should only pay for the services they use and our collaboration with InMon maximizes our network analysis and measurement capability allowing us to accurately pass on lowest cost bandwidth charges to customers. Our IP-based or layer three approach not only increases transparency and billing accuracy, it also enables our customers to accurately re-charge bandwidth usage to their own customers."
"The unique scalability of InMon's sFlow solution makes it the ideal choice for monitoring the fastest of data center networks," said Peter Phaal, president of InMon Corp. "In the expert hands of the PEER 1 engineers, the detailed traffic database in the Sentinel product can be applied to a wide range of applications, from accounting and capacity planning to troubleshooting and security.
