ExtraHop Networks Partners with cPacket Networks to Provide Enhanced Real-Time Application Performance Monitoring (APM)

April 25, 2012

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and SEATTLE, WA – April 25, 2012 – cPacket Networks and ExtraHop Networks announced today a new technology partnership between the two companies to provide businesses with a streamlined solution for real-time application performance management (APM) and monitoring. This partnership enables IT teams across a wide range of industries to gain unmatched real-time network visibility and improve application delivery.

"IT operations teams today are tasked with not just ensuring the performance of discrete components of an application, but understanding how the performance of one component affects another," said Jesse Rothstein, ExtraHop co-founder and CEO. "This requires real-time visibility across the network, web, database, and storage tiers of the application environment. The on-the-fly filtering, network performance monitoring, and aggregation abilities of cPacket's cVu traffic monitoring switches is a great complement to our real-time application transaction analysis."

cPacket's products provide highly accurate hardware timestamps and clock synchronization combined with complete packet inspection and filtering at full line rate under any traffic conditions. To launch the partnership, the two companies certified the interoperability between the cVu traffic monitoring switches and ExtraHop's unique, network-based application performance management solution that provides proactive early warning, accelerated troubleshooting, and real-time mapping and measurement at true 10Gbps speeds for the entire application environment.

The combination of these industry-leading products allows customers to gain complete visibility of their application traffic across all tiers of the network. Such visibility is particularly useful for network and data center service assurance, troubleshooting, performance tuning, and capacity planning, and for enabling finance, retail, government, telecommunications, and cloud services organizations to maintain their competitive edge when speed, efficiency, and reliability of application transactions is absolutely business-critical.

"ExtraHop's customers count on the company to help them overcome issues caused by the increasing demands of high performance networks," said Rony Kay, founder and CEO of cPacket Networks. "cPacket is pleased to partner with a market leader like ExtraHop to provide best-of-breed solutions."
