As part of our Editorial feature on Network Performance Monitoring and Diagnostics (NPMD), Tolly recently spoke with Kevin Conklin, Vice President of Product Marketing and Mark Amick, Senior Product Consultant at Ipswitch.
As you’ll see from our spotlight recaps with the various NPMD vendors the space is broadly defined and within the category there are multiple segments such as packet-based and flow-based technology.
Ipswitch designs and develops industry-leading software that enables the easy delivery of 24/7 performance and security across cloud, virtual and on-premise environments. IT teams worldwide rely on 25 years of innovation to optimize and secure business transactions, applications and infrastructure with Ipswitch MOVEit® secure file transfer, Ipswitch WhatsUp® Gold network monitoring and Ipswitch WS_FTP®. Further details provided below are based on our conversation with Ipswitch and their documentation.
WhatsUp Gold allows you to monitor any mix of networks, servers, storage devices, virtual machines, applications, traffic flows and configurations across Windows, LAMP and Java environments. Per Ipswitch, WhatsUp Gold streamlines workflows by letting you initiate management tasks directly from the interactive map or workspace.
Some of the key benefits Ipswitch highlighted during our conversation includes:
- Updated User Interface that affords user a map-based navigation and instinctive workflows
- Simplified Licensing Model that enable a user to buy a single license for monitoring everything
- Supports distributed model and failover
- Can automatically build dependencies
