EVERETT, Wash., April 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Fluke Networks' Visual TruView was ranked the best Hybrid ANPM Solution and a Value Leader for large enterprise and service provider deployments, according to the new 2013 Application-aware Network Performance Management (ANPM) Radar Report from Enterprise Management Associates, a leading industry analyst firm. The report evaluated 24 vendors including NetScout, Riverbed/OpNet and CA Technologies.

Visual TruView, introduced in late January, integrates the separate disciplines of network and application performance monitoring, element managers and Stream to Disc (S2D) with up to 10G performance,1 so engineers never have to waste time performing "swivel chair "correlations across multiple tool sets. 

"Fluke Networks is a Value Leader due to the progress made with their new Visual TruView product. It's an integrated, unified appliance that includes packet monitoring technology, packet storage technology, NetFlow/xFlow, and SNMP, all in a single appliance rated and verified for 10G," said Jim Frey, vice president of research at Enterprise Management Associates. "We also recognized Fluke Networks for the best Hybrid ANPM Solution because Visual TruView shows more capability in a single box than we see from any other solution in the market at this time."

To ensure this integrated functionality operates without degrading performance, Visual TruView has 2.5 times more analytical processing power than any competing solution.  Plus, TruView features a single, correlated dashboard that makes it easy for engineers to drill down to individual or group of flows, packets or transactions of any user, site or period of time in just a few clicks. Furthermore, it offers automatic identification and configuration of applications and networks, so set up takes just 15 minutes or less.2 

"ANPM is all about giving networking and application teams visibility into their infrastructure so they can clearly see what issues affect their network and end-users. We designed TruView to help teams collaborate in the monitoring and troubleshooting of issues so they can quickly respond to changes before they impact the business," said Daryle DeBalski, vice president and general manager of the Fluke Networks' Visual business unit. "EMA has a keen understanding of this market and we're excited to be named a value leader and be awarded the best hybrid ANPM solution."

This EMA Radar™ Report focused on core capabilities and features associated with network operations' need to recognize, characterize, troubleshoot, and communicate details of how applications and services perform as they transit the network. Twenty-four vendors were covered in the report, including: AppNeta, CA Technologies, Compuware, ExtraHop, InfoVista, Lancope, NetScout Systems, Network Instruments, Riverbed and SolarWinds.   To read the entire EMA Radar Report on Visual TruView, please click here.
