Auto-Discover Your Applications and Infrastructure

Application Service Assurance is enabled by application and infrastructure discovery and mapping that aligns infrastructure monitoring with your applications. Application discovery is accomplished using these methods:

  • SSH/WMI
  • ServiceNow CMDB
  • Using existing AppDynamics and Dynatrace Information
  • NetFlow data collection
  • VMware vSphere Distributed Switch

Continuously Rebalance Infrastructure Resources

Optimal application performance and infrastructure utilization is realized by continuous re-balancing of the underlying infrastructure including VMs, network paths and storage load distribution.
VirtualWisdom Reduces infrastructure cost

The Storage Port Balancer analytic uses machine learning to monitor port utilization on storage ports and provide recommendations on rebalancing ports on the storage array.
VirtualWisdom users typically reduce their infrastructure costs by 30-50% after deployment by identifying underutilized resources and avoiding unnecessary infrastructure spending.

Remediate Problems Before Affecting Users

VirtualWisdom is the gold standard for infrastructure troubleshooting and for proactively preventing business-impacting outages and slowdowns.  The platform enables you to quickly identify root-cause before application users and your business are affected.

Integrated case management and run-book based guided investigations reduce alarms and speed problem resolution.
VirtualWisdom reduces MTTR

VirtualWisdom customers typically reduce their MTTR (Mean Time To Resolution) times between 80-90%.

WisdomPack for storage wire data

WisdomPack for storage wire data

The Virtual Instruments family of hardware-based SAN and NAS Performance Probes, supporting NFS, SMB, FiberChannel and iSCSI, are the most advanced, high capacity line-rate data inspection and analysis devices available. They inspect, process and analyze every frame and packet header in real-time. They capture the true, unaltered, I/O profile of the actual application traffic, detecting application performance slowdowns and transmission errors by measuring every I/O transaction from start to finish. This WisdomPack for storage wire data also includes agentless wire level software-only monitoring of 32G Fibre channel Cisco SANs when Cisco SAN Telemetry Streaming is enabled on the Cisco MDS devices.

Leave your IT War Room Behind


VirtualWisdom is the standard for Hybrid IT Infrastructure Management. Delivering the industry leading IT Infrastructure monitoring and AIOps platform.

How VirtualWisdom is Unique

  1. Full stack, application-centric view of your hybrid infrastructure. We help you to understand infrastructure and application interrelationships, to map applications to the underlying shared infrastructure across servers/VMs, networks and storage. You will know what components of your infrastructure are supporting each of your key applications, including the performance, health, utilization and capacity of that infrastructure.
  2. Highly granular, heterogenous, agentless monitoring. You can non-intrusively track every transaction and I/O request to see how application behavior and infrastructure changes affect response times – in a completely vendor-independent approach.
  3. Massive ingest capability of both machine and wire data. We uniquely capture continuous, real-time wire and machine data metrics via comprehensive instrumentation across all infrastructure elements with unsurpassed data ingest capabilities.
  4. Cross-silo correlation and AI-based analytics. The WisdomAI platform leverages machine-learning to correlate and analyze wire and machine data in the context of the application. This empowers you to proactively find and resolve performance problems and optimize utilization without your users even knowing.
