Dallas, Tx., June 23, 2010 – FireScope, the leading innovator of IT Service Management solutions, today announce the availability of FireScope Dash, a powerful monitoring solution that delivers more features for less cost than comparable offerings from SolarWinds, IPSwitch and others.
Offered as either a virtual or a physical appliance, FireScope Dash bypasses the traditional headaches of solution deployments by including the complete software stack pre-installed and ready to start. This design, when coupled with FireScope Dash's built-in discovery and auto-configuration, enables organization to get to their first real-time dashboards of infrastructure status and performance in minutes.
"Dash is a disruptor for the industry," said Mark Lynd, President and COO of FireScope. "For too long they've been treading water with solutions built from legacy architectures that require too much cost and effort to configure, use and maintain, and have no way to support the recent explosion of new technologies. I hope they take a good look at Dash and realize that the bar is being set higher."
FireScope Dash is available in two form factors, with two optional extras. For smaller organizations, Dash can be downloaded as a virtual machine and monitor up to 500 assets at a price of $7,995. A physical appliance form factor is also available, with optimized hardware and the complete software stack pre-installed (Operating System and database included). Regardless of form factor, there is no cost per user, processor, interface or reports, a significant departure from traditional monitoring solution providers. The two optional extras are Virtualization Management and Application Performance Management (APM) with User Experience Monitoring.
Virtualization Management – FireScope Dash can be expanded to monitor the performance of an organization’s virtual environment, as well as track human or system initiated changes to that environment. Unlike the competition, who typically utilize SNMP for virtualization monitoring, FireScope Dash utilizes VMWare’s API for faster, more reliable access to data.
Application Performance Management (APM) / User Experience – In addition to expanded application and management capabilities, this add-on includes the ability to simulate common tasks for web applications and email, evaluating each step for indicators of failure and performance across a wide range of metrics.
For organizations with multiple locations or large transactional environments, FireScope Dash can be upgraded to FireScope BSM Enterprise Edition. In addition to Dash’s feature set, FireScope BSM includes collaboration features and a hardware configuration optimized for the unique needs of enterprise customers. FireScope BSM also includes the ability to deploy hundreds of appliances to remote business locations that feed a complete set of data and events to a corporate master appliance, enabling a truly global view of IT Operations.
