ExtraHop Delivers Deep Visibility Into Physical and Virtual IT Environments 
With VMware vCenter(TM) Log Insight(TM) 
Wire Data Analytics From ExtraHop, Coupled With Automated Log
Management From VMware, Enables Rich Insight Into Performance,
Availability, and Security 
SEATTLE, WA  -- (Marketwired) -- 12/19/13 --  - ExtraHop, the global
leader in real-time wire data analytics for IT operational
intelligence, today announced the new Wire Data Stream for VMware
vCenterâ„¢ Log Insightâ„¢ to provide deep insight into the performance,
availability, and security of applications running in both physical
and virtual environments. With VMware vCenter Log Insight, VMware
analyzes both unstructured data and log files for enterprise-wide
visibility across infrastructure and applications. ExtraHop enriches
machine data analysis of VMware vCenter Log Insight by adding wire
data analytics insight that cannot be derived from machine data
alone. The two combined sources of Big Data deliver high levels of
visibility, even in dynamic, hybrid environments. 
"Today's dynamic, virtual, and cloud infrastructures generate vast
quantities of data - data that has the potential to provide deep
insight into the health and performance of physical and virtual IT
environments," said Rob Smoot, senior director, Cloud Management
Marketing, VMware. "Analytics is the key to unlocking the value
within that data. Through VMware vCenterâ„¢ Log Insightâ„¢ with ExtraHop,
we're able to apply our sophisticated analytics to both machine data
and wire data, enabling broad insight into the performance,
availability, and security of IT applications and infrastructure."  
ExtraHop provides real-time wire data analytics to monitor the
performance of infrastructure and applications across the entire IT
environment, enabling centralized monitoring of applications, whether
they reside on-premises or in the cloud. VMware vCenter Log Insight
can provide a fully automated platform to aggregate, analyze, and
search this data from ExtraHop, as well as from other sources
including log files, making the data actionable for IT teams. By
providing a unified view of IT-critical data, ExtraHop and VMware
enable a proactive, intelligent approach to monitoring and management
of dynamic and hybrid IT environments. 
With VMware vCenter Log Insight and ExtraHop, IT teams visualize and
analyze wire data in real-time alongside machine data. With the
built-in Wire Data Stream, the ExtraHop Operational Intelligence
platform enables IT Operations teams to achieve the following goals: 

--  Generate consistently formatted logs across heterogeneous datacenter
    components such as databases, middleware, network elements, and storage
    systems. The ExtraHop platform provides a stream of analytics
    encompassing networking, application, database, and storage metrics in a
    consistent manner regardless of vendor.
--  Stream high-priority events, anomalies, or thresholds only visible in
    Wire Data with precision and according to set policies.
--  Stream specific correlated network, web, VDI, database, or storage
    events monitored by the ExtraHop platform, such as when database
    transactions exceed a set amount from one or more specified clients or
    file access times across heterogeneous networked storage systems exceed
    a certain threshold.

"Our customers and partners tell us that the lack of visibility into
the performance, availability, and security of applications and
infrastructure remains a significant barrier to adoption of
next-generation solutions, from cloud to virtualization, to SDN,"
said Jesse Rothstein, CEO, ExtraHop. "Enterprises are certainly
curious about these technologies, and transforming curiosity to
confidence will require solutions that can provide greater assurance.
Through our work with VMware and with VMware vCenter Log Insight,
we're providing the cross-tier, multisource visibility that can
engender that confidence."
