Gruve was experiencing some application response time issues...X_Factor identified key application performance and infrastructure related issues and produced an actionable report.
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 29, 2011
Xcedex, a leading provider of IT system cloud, virtualization, and performance optimization solutions released a case study of the successful optimization of a client’s Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).
Xcedex’s flagship product, X_Factor, was recently used by Gruve Technologies, a medical device firm in Minneapolis, to discover, inventory, and assess their core applications running in an Amazon EC2. The software application was specifically used to look for ways to stabilize, optimize, and assist with issues related to platform configuration and dependency information.
“Gruve was experiencing some application response time issues so we called Xcedex and within 24 hours, Xcedex had X_Factor deployed. X_Factor identified several key application performance and infrastructure related issues and produced an actionable report that helped us resolve the issues and avoid a potential business outage,” said Dr. Robert Gauthier, M.D., CEO of Gruve Technologies. Dr. Gauthier went on to say, “Gruve is currently using X_Factor to provide up-to-date analysis on utilization statistics, optimization and capacity planning.”
“As more companies deploy applications to the cloud, we have seen a demand for a complete solution that provides them with better insight and operational visibility for their private or public cloud”, said Chris Taylor, President and CEO, Xcedex. “For many organizations there is a common belief that their existing IT management tools are not suitable for the cloud, since these tools were developed for the physical or virtual that world they migrated from. For cloud, these legacy tools are unreliable, time consuming and error-prone, potentially exposing companies to significant operational risks, and business interruption costs.”
Xcedex is working closely with a number of cloud providers such as Rackspace, which hosts and provides cloud computing to more than 100,000 businesses, since cloud providers know that X_Factor is a reliable and trusted cloud IT management tool.
X_Factor’s innovative programming and broad range capabilities help organizations with design, analysis, cost management, implementation and monitoring over their physical, virtual or cloud platforms: Physical to Virtual (P2V), Virtual to Virtual Alignment / Optimization (V2VO) and Virtual to Cloud (V2C).
