Paessler launches enterprise-scale monitoring solution

30 Apr 2020

Paessler AG has launched the PRTG Enterprise Monitor for businesses that need to monitor large IT infrastructures with thousands of devices. 

The new offering is a subscription-based licensing model tailored to large IT environments. 

These are licensed only by the number of sensors that are deployed across as many servers and locations as required, starting at 30,000 sensors.

Every license includes the monitoring of network performance, infrastructure, applications, databases, storage, virtual environments as well as medical infrastructures, shop floors or IoT setups. Failover functionality and unlimited polling engines are also included.

IT teams in large enterprise organisations, which are often responsible for multiple, locally distributed datacentres, offices, subsidiaries and stores, can establish a central overview of their entire infrastructure with one single solution without the need for additional modules or add-ons.

Enterprise Monitor includes the ITOps Board, powered by Martello Technologies, which enhances the PRTG setup with a service-oriented, central overview also across multiple PRTG servers. 

It significantly reduces alert noise and adds advanced analytics and overall SLA (Service Level Agreement) monitoring and reporting.

  • Multi server dashboards – The ITOps Board displays data from one or multiple PRTG servers in central, easy to build real-time dashboards, based on services and according to the staff member’s role.
     
  • Business service monitoring The ITOps Board gathers alerts and notifications from one or multiple PRTG servers and correlates them by business services, offering a service-oriented, central overview.
     
  • Automated alert management Based on business services the ITOps Board filters and concentrates alerts, reducing and focusing alert noise to what really matters.
     
  • SLA modelling and monitoring – ITOps Board defines SLOs (Service Level Objectives) for each defined business service. Based on these SLO settings it calculates and displays SLA performance and availability. It sends warnings before an SLA is breached, giving IT teams time to react and rectify, thereby avoiding serious SLA violation

Paessler has already implemented new Nutanix sensors and added many other features to the PRTG Enterprise Monitor roadmap which fulfil the demands of IT teams for enterprise environments.

“With Paessler PRTG Enterprise Monitor we are enhancing PRTG with central, service-oriented dashboards and a flexible subscription-based licensing model which is ideal for horizontal scaling,” says Paessler AG CEO Helmut Binder.

“Combining this with all the benefits of classic PRTG, including ease of use, simple licensing, and the broad feature set, PRTG Enterprise Monitor offers a powerful and affordable solution to monitor large IT environments in a lean and easy way. This way we continue to support our existing customer base with their growing network sizes and demands. And we offer a monitoring solution with an unprecedented feature set, usability and licensing for enterprise-level IT teams.”
