Ottawa, Ontario (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
Solana Networks, a technology vendor that provides intelligent monitoring products for mission critical networks, has announced the launch of SparrowIQ, a cost-effective, network performance management tool for small and medium businesses (SMBs). Delivered as an all-in-one software solution, SparrowIQ is a packet-based traffic analysis and performance monitoring solution that enables businesses to easily monitor and troubleshoot network and application utilization and efficiency.
With networks now more stable and reliable, and bandwidth consumption on the rise, the focus has turned to how the services and applications crossing the network are performing and hence serving end users.
Solana’s VP of Product Management Nisan Rowhani, said the product was developed to meet the needs of IT professionals for a cost-effective performance monitoring solution.
“IT professionals maintaining smaller shops face the same concerns that larger IT enterprises face; complaints of a slow-running network or applications, but with much smaller budgets,” says Rowhani. “As a result, they’re unable to leverage the benefits of performance monitoring solutions due to cost and time constraints.”
“We are delighted to launch SparrowIQ, a powerful and easy-to-use traffic monitoring solution that specifically targets this gap and was designed from the ground up with the SMB in mind.”
According to Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), a leading industry analyst firm, “Solana Network’s SparrowIQ brings application-aware, traffic monitoring to smaller IT shops that have the same performance management needs as larger enterprise counterparts, but lack enterprise-sized IT budgets whether their networks are managed internally or externally by an MSP.”
Delivered to complement existing network management systems, SparrowIQ’s key features include traffic forensics, real-time traffic alerting, automatic report generation and distribution. SparrowIQ further defines its features as:
Leveraging the inherent benefits of the packet-based approach, more granular application classification (e.g. Bit Torrent) capabilities are in the works and targeted for release by Q3.
