Adobe Systems and T2 Systems Use the ExtraHop System to Troubleshoot and Proactively Manage Oracle-Based Applications

SEATTLE, WA – September 27, 2011 ExtraHop Networks, a leading provider of network-based application performance management (APM) solutions, today announced that Adobe Systems and T2 Systems chose the ExtraHop system to passively and continuously monitor Oracle-dependent applications without agents or profilers. Filling gaps left by traditional APM tools, ExtraHop's support for Oracle opens up a cost-effective and easy-to-implement option for troubleshooting and proactively managing Oracle-dependent applications. Adobe Systems and T2 Systems join the ranks of a wide range of enterprise customers who use the ExtraHop system to holistically manage application environments built on Oracle technology.

Real-time, cross-tier visibility into application performance is a must for today's business-critical applications, particularly for Oracle environments that must operate flawlessly at extreme scale. The problem, however, is that many Oracle customers use point products that are built to only monitor specific components of their application. In contrast, the ExtraHop system provides real-time analysis across the entire application environment. In addition to passively monitoring Oracle databases, the ExtraHop system helps to ensure optimal performance across other application tiers, including network, web, middleware, and storage. This unprecedented level of real-time cross-tier analysis enables effective end-to-end transaction monitoring for Oracle-dependent applications. In addition to Oracle databases, the ExtraHop system supports all other major database types, including IBM DB2, IBM Informix, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Sybase.

"With the ExtraHop system, we've gained critical real-time visibility into the performance of our Oracle databases as well as other components of our applications," said Jim Hutchins, Chief Information Officer at T2 Systems. "This real-time, cross-tier visibility into application performance is a priority for us, and the ExtraHop system gives our IT staff the dexterity to proactively manage our Oracle applications and quickly troubleshoot problems."

"The dynamism that virtualization, intelligent network devices, and multi-tiered architecture bring to applications, which is especially prevalent in Oracle-dependent applications, makes real-time analysis of application transactions across the entire environment more important than ever," said Jesse Rothstein, ExtraHop co-founder and CEO. "ExtraHop's passive, network-based APM solution provides transaction-level visibility without the overhead and expense of traditional tools."

The ExtraHop Application Delivery Assurance system is a passive network appliance that is capable of identifying Oracle-dependent application issues in minutes without imposing any performance overhead. As a plug-and-play solution, the ExtraHop system can be deployed quickly and easily as a complementary offering to point solutions or as a comprehensive standalone APM solution. The ExtraHop system's ease of deployment speeds time-to-value, complementing self-contained, high-performance Oracle solutions such as the Exadata Database Machine.
