Cisco News - ExtraHop Networks' Certified EH1000v Available for Cisco UCS-E
By Carolyn J Dawson, TMCnet Contributor
ExtraHop Networks’ (News - Alert) EH1000v virtual appliance has been certified and can now be used with the Cisco Unified Computing System Express, or UCS-E. ExtraHop Networks, who is showcasing its products at booth #2110 at Cisco (News - Alert) Live, announced that branch office customers running Citrix VDI with Cisco UCS-E will benefit from this certification. Earlier, ExtraHop’s network-based APM (News - Alert) solution was also certified as Citrix Ready for XenDesktop and XenApp. ExtraHop can therefore offer rich-media-enabled virtual desktops as a result of its collaboration with Cisco and Citrix. Complete visibility is offered by the ExtraHop system for end-to-end application settings, ranging from the datacenter to the branch office.
With the increasing intricacies of the applications, organizations are finding it difficult to administer applications and desktop environments across the enterprise. As the branch offices have a skeleton IT staff, they face maximum challenges as they try to merge IT in order to decrease intricacy, footprint, and expenses. While VDI helps branch offices in managing the mundane operational tasks in a simplified manner, it does not offer clear visibility into end-user experience.
Applications running in branch-office implementations like virtualized desktops and applications are now offered real-time transaction analysis at constant 1Gbps speeds with ExtraHop’s EH1000v. IT teams located in different locations, including Citrix administrators, can now troubleshoot application performance problems rapidly with ExtraHop’s EH1000v. Application performance across large numbers of branch offices can now be tracked in an economically viable manner with the small-footprint and scalable solution offered by the EH1000v.
In a release, Jesse Rothstein (News - Alert), CEO and co-founder of ExtraHop, said, “Cisco owns 80 to 90 percent of the data networking market, so it’s great exposure for us to be certified for the Cisco UCS-E. This certification further validates our ability to deliver completely passive, network-based, end-to-end application performance management across the enterprise, all the way from the datacenter to the branch office.”
ExtraHop is now a member of the Cisco Developer Network by becoming a Registered Developer within the Cisco Integrated Services Routers technology category. ExtraHop has also effectively accomplished interoperability testing of EH1000v with the Cisco Unified Computing System Express Services-Ready Engine.
