Release: eG Enterprise-on-Tap

eG Innovations is a performance monitoring and triage solutions provider. Today, eg Innovations announced the release of eG Enterprise-on-Tap, a SaaS performance monitoring solution for applications and business services. eG Enterprise-on-Tap supports physical, virtual and cloud based infrastrucures, covering 10 different operating system versions and more than 120 applications.

Initially announced for use by Citrix XenDesktop users, eG Enterprise-on-Tap includes all the capabilities of the eG Enterprise Suite and has expended to support multiple virtualized server and desktop platforms of common adoption in private cloud and standard virtualization infrastructures:

  • VMware’s vSphere and VMware View
  • Microsoft’s Hyper-V and Virtual Server
  • Citrix XenServer, XenApp and XenDesktop.
  • Sun Solaris Containers and Logical Domains (LDoms)

The presence of Solaris Containers and an IBM solution is notable and a welcome addition, as only a few number of products currently support these platforms.

Srinivas Ramanathan, founder, president and CEO of eG Innovations, provided the standard pitch for performance monitoring solutions:

eG-on-Tap provides unparalleled visibility into the performance of hybrid cloud infrastructures for cloud providers and consumers alike, thereby eliminating blind spots.

A feature eG Enterprise-on-Tap is heavily pushing on is the correlation analysis of configuration changes with performance changes, which should empower administrators to track and modify misconfigurations which led to performance degradations – the so-called root cause differential analysis which is becoming more and more standardized in the market sector.

A relevant feature of the product is its usage of WEB protocols: all communications happen over HTTP or – better – HTTPS: this can greatly ease deployment in complex environment, also helped by the fact that only agents can connect back to the server, which is a purely passive monitor.

Enterprise-on-Tap natively supports multi-tenancy with multiple private networks, with multi-user and multi-login support built-in in the product from the beginning, including a powerful scraping system which will never leak business sensitive data in performance analysis and logs.
