Strategic partnership gives MSPs performance insight to customer network & application problems

AppNeta, the leading provider of cloud-based network performance management and Artisan Infrastructure, the wholesale Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider, announced today a strategic partnership to bring managed service providers (MSPs) and value-added resellers (VARs) unmatched insight into customer network and application performance.

AppNeta’s award-winning PathView Cloud service enables managed service providers to pre-assess, continuously monitor and quickly troubleshoot customer network problems and performance challenges of business-critical application performance for VoIP, video conferencing, virtualization and IP storage and backup. Together, AppNeta and Artisan Infrastructure offer managed service providers the visibility they need to quickly identify problems and understand network performance metrics that directly impact business productivity and application success.

“As a traditional VOIP solution provider, it is essential to my company, as we move to telephony as a service model, that my Infrastructure-as-a-Service provider has partnered with AppNeta to provide performance monitoring services,” said Mark Kruger, CEO of Virtutel Services. “The PathView cloud service offered by this partnership will allow Virtutel Services to provide a best in class, real time and historical, performance management information reflecting all points of the local area network and in the cloud. The PathView cloud service allows Virtutel Services to eliminate the need for dedicated MPLS circuits for deployment of voice, virtualized and hosted solutions. Bandwidth in the cloud and the performance of bandwidth for voice in the cloud can now be monitored and diagnosed reliably.”

On Wednesday, November 2, 2011 at 3:00pm ET AppNeta and Artisan Infrastructure will co-host “Assuring Performance of your Customers’ Business-Critical Applications” webinar. The webinar will provide an overview of how the PathView Cloud service provides instant-value to service providers managing business critical applications and the remote site performance of their customer networks. The webinar will also discuss the importance of active, real-time visibility and reporting, SLA validation, QoS issues and pre-deployment network assessments.

“The partnership with AppNeta offers our MSP and VAR customers performance insight that they don’t have today,” said Steve Williams, vice president of corporate development for Artisan Infrastructure. “With PathView Cloud in Artisan Infrastructure’s Certified Solution Ecosystem, our customers have the ability to not only find and fix WAN performance problems quickly, but they can easily build a new recurring revenue service with continuous network performance monitoring.”
