Case Studies

We utilize SAM to monitor pretty much every application in our environment. We built custom app monitoring for our ERP, we’re monitoring our backup infrastructure, DR, pretty much everything with SAM.”

Max Kuzmenko
Senior Systems Engineer

Before, I had to run traces for 12 to 24 hours to see how the server was performing over time to understand the top CPU intensive queries. Now it will take a matter of 5 minutes after the AppInsight feature is installed.”

Thomas Löfstrand
of Nethouse

The integration of SAM, VMAN, and SRM is absolutely paramount, because if a network guy pointing a finger to a virtualization or a storage person, we can now integrate all of those products together in one dashboard (AppStack™) and understand what’s happening in each of these boxes. Drill down further and see that a network issue could actually be laying into the virtual issue using a single pane of glass.”
