Delivers benefit of reduced IT staffing, licensing and maintenance costs while overcoming performance and usability limitations found in other monitoring and trending systems

SAN JOSE, Calif., June 23 /PRNewswire/ -- VELOCITY 2010 -- OmniTI today announced the availability of Circonus, the SaaS embodiment of its Reconnoiter project, which will help businesses integrate advanced event correlation into their own monitoring portfolio. Circonus differs from existing services and software by providing a holistic view of the customer's architecture.  Where Web Performance monitoring services measure the end-user experience, and Event Correlation and Analysis (ECA) and Uptime monitoring services focus on host and service health factors, Circonus goes to the next level; performing millions of active checks and passive metric collection on virtually any target or data source, Circonus marks the convergence of monitoring, fault detection and capacity planning as a user-friendly, managed SaaS service.

The emphasis of aligning a business' IT infrastructure to its bottom line is a trend that continues to rise in adoption and importance. In fact, a recent poll from CIO Magazine found that while 65% percent of polled IT leaders said business intelligence and analytics have spurred a business-process change in the last year, only 41% say their analytics and business process management tools are closely integrated.

"We're seeing companies under increased pressure to act quickly in order to optimize cost, respond to market opportunity, and to reduce risk, both financial and operational. We understand the importance of quality metrics and the stories they tell," said Theo Schlossnagle, CEO of OmniTI. "That's why Circonus isn't just another uptime monitoring service. It gathers valuable information about each of your services, stores them indefinitely, and makes them available whenever -- and wherever -- you need them."

Industry Support

"Circonus' trending functions are incredibly powerful. The ability to consolidate metrics across a variety of services into a single graph makes it much easier to spot bottlenecks in one area that may correlate to performance problems in another. It's a graph nerd's paradise!" said Mark Imbriaco, Operations Manager, 37signals

"Like a lot of shops, our monitoring infrastructure was organic and hackish. Circonus melds three obvious services into a single, usuable interface. Monitoring, trending and analysis will always require knowledge of your services -- but with Circonus, it can be easy," said Bryan Allen, Systems Administrator, Pobox.
