ExtraHop Makes Enterprise-Class Application Performance Management (APM) Easy to Try and Buy with Free Virtual Appliance

ExtraHop Discovery Edition and EH2000v Extend the Industry’s Most Scalable and Cost-Effective Lineup of Virtual and Physical APM Solutions

SEATTLE--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ExtraHop Networks, the leading provider of network-based application performance management (APM) solutions, announced today the availability of both the ExtraHop Discovery Edition, a new 60-day, free trial version of its award-winning ExtraHop Application Delivery Assurance system, and the EH2000v, a more powerful version of its EH1000v virtual appliance. The ExtraHop Discovery Edition disrupts the APM status quo by enabling IT teams to easily explore the benefits of network-based APM. The EH2000v supports enterprises’ increasingly virtualized and distributed IT environments and is the most scalable virtual APM appliance available on the market, providing up to a sustained 3Gbps throughput capacity and support for over 1,000 hosts or VMs.

Modern, real-time businesses are running larger and faster applications, leaving IT Operations teams struggling to manage performance. Legacy, agent-based APM solutions are too inflexible, are not scalable, and cost too much with expensive per-server licensing. In contrast, the ExtraHop Discovery Edition enables IT professionals to easily try an alternative by downloading a free, 60-day trial. With the ExtraHop Discovery Edition, IT Operations teams can

  • Auto-discover all applications and physical and virtual devices, including VMware hosts
  • View real-time correlated network, web, application, database, and storage performance
  • Identify errors and performance degradations for each tier in the application delivery chain
  • Check for indicators of virtual packet loss

“With its Discovery Edition virtual appliance, ExtraHop is adopting the disruptive new model for delivering and selling enterprise IT solutions,” said Bernd Harzog, Analyst at The Virtualization Practice and CEO and Founder of APM Experts. “Now, IT Operations teams can download and try enterprise-class application performance monitoring for free, in production, before buying it. This is in stark contrast to the high upfront costs and long implementation cycles associated with legacy APM and is sure to hasten the demise of those tools.”

While the free ExtraHop Discovery Edition makes award-winning APM available to anyone, the new EH2000v, capable of monitoring over 1,000 virtual or physical devices, offers unprecedented scalability for a virtual APM appliance by providing up to a sustained 3Gbps of throughput capacity. Additionally, ExtraHop’s new APM subscription-based pricing makes next-generation APM more accessible, with prices as low as $0.75 per day, per machine.

“Legacy APM tools have worn out their welcome in today’s enterprise IT organizations. IT teams need new and better solutions to manage highly virtualized and distributed applications,” said Jesse Rothstein, CEO, ExtraHop Networks. “The ExtraHop Discovery Edition makes it easy for IT teams to try and buy the APM technology they need. Within 15 minutes of installing the free download, IT professionals gain real-time visibility across the network, web, database, and storage tiers. This correlated, cross-tier visibility helps IT teams diagnose and isolate interrelated performance issues that they could not resolve with traditional monitoring tools.”
