October 10, 2017 – Virtual Instruments, the leader in application-centric infrastructure performance management, today announced its sales expansion into Australia with the appointment of PlexNet, a specialist in networking, application, infrastructure and security testing and analysis, as its newest value-added reseller (VAR) and professional services partner.
PlexNet specialises in bringing advanced storage and network testing technology from around the globe to the Australian market, and will have full distribution rights for all of Virtual Instruments’ app-centric infrastructure performance management solutions, including the VirtualWisdom infrastructure performance monitoring platform and the Load DynamiX Enterprise storage performance testing and validation platform. PlexNet will provide its customers the opportunity to more easily measure and guarantee performance-based service level agreements (SLAs) and increase the overall value of their infrastructure.
There is an ongoing global trend of enterprises seeking ways to make more intelligent decisions about their infrastructure in order to better control escalating costs and assure performance. In fact, a recent report from the Enterprise Strategy Group showed that 94 percent of respondents said their organisation ensures performance and availability by using monitoring tools, and 54 percent of those respondents prefer to use vendor-independent monitoring tools.
“As we continue to expand globally, our goal is to work with highly regarded regional partners with proven capabilities to help customers make more intelligent deployment decisions and optimise their infrastructure investments,” said Sheen Khoury, executive vice president of worldwide sales, Virtual Instruments. “We’re looking forward to working closely with PlexNet and our other partners across the globe to help them offer highly differentiated products and services that enable them to become vendor-independent trusted advisors to their customers.”
“We are excited about adding Virtual Instruments’ app-centric IPM products to our portfolio as they address a critical need for a vendor-agnostic performance monitoring and testing solutions for the emerging hybrid data centre,” said Dom Fitzgibbon, CTO of PlexNet.
