Ipswitch (News - Alert), a developer of IT management solutions, stated that its newly released WhatsUp Gold v16 is packed with advanced capabilities like comprehensive network, server and application monitoring, automated layer 2 discovery and mapping, advanced wireless infrastructure management, and hardware and software asset reporting – and can help users realize lowest total cost of ownership.
“There’s been a gaping hole in the IT management space for years. Small and mid-sized businesses had to depend on watered-down solutions, while Fortune 500s were burdened with the complexities of management platforms that took months to deploy and large staffs to manage,” said Ronnie Ray, vice president of marketing and product management at Ipswitch’s Network Management Division. “WhatsUp Gold v16 fills this gap with powerful and scalable enterprise-level functionality, minus the hassles and at a price that any size business can afford.”
With WhatsUp Gold v16, one can reportedly build an accurate picture of their network devices, systems and their interconnections, using Layer 2 and 3 network technologies, including ARP, SNMP, ICMP, SSH, LLDP, WMI, Telnet and more.
The solution is available in three editions – Premium, Standard and Distributed – and users have the option to choose what is right for them. Advanced Layer 2 functionality has been integrated into all WhatsUp Gold editions.
The company claimed it is the most intuitive, comprehensive and cost-effective IT and network management software available today.
Notable features of WhatsUp Gold v16 include scalability for networks and data centers from 25 to 20,000+ devices; monitoring of wired and wireless networks, systems and applications; complete infrastructure visibility via a single, unified dashboard; reliable, around-the-clock, single-site and distributed IT management; and simple and cost-effective device-based licensing.
The service has reportedly been tried, tested and proven on over 100,000 networks.
In related news, Ipswitch was named one of the best places to work in 2010 in the greater Boston Area by the Boston Business Journal, and provided 360-degree visibility of critical Web applications with the launch of Alertfox EUM.
