OPNET's ACE LiveVMon Provides New Application Performance Visibility and Troubleshooting Capabilities in Virtualized Environments

BETHESDA, MD -- June 19, 2009

- OPNET Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: OPNT), a leading provider of
solutions for managing networks and applications, today announced ACE
Live VMon, a new solution for end-user experience monitoring that
extends the visibility of application performance management into
communications among virtual servers.

ACE Live is an
end-to-end solution that spans monitoring, measurement, and detection
of application performance violations, providing visibility of all
transactions and users across the enterprise. The newest addition to
the ACE Live family, ACE Live VMon, is deployed within a virtual
machine and monitors communications to and from all the virtual servers
running within a physical server.

With the introduction
of more powerful servers, increasing numbers of virtual servers are
being consolidated onto fewer platforms. Virtualization offers
significant benefits, including reduced operating costs and greater
flexibility in deploying applications. However, vital application
performance management functions can be hindered because most
management solutions lack visibility into communications among virtual
servers residing within the same physical machine.

Live VMon restores visibility of all the communications for the
applications that are hosted on virtual servers, including
communications within the physical server as well as traffic to and
from systems outside the physical server. It offers the same industry
leading real-time monitoring and troubleshooting as OPNET's
hardware-based ACE Live appliances, with analytics that automatically
identify the root cause of application performance problems. ACE Live
VMon offers a lower total cost of operation (TCO) than other solutions
that require an external appliance for analyzing data, offering reduced
power consumption and a smaller footprint.

"ACE Live VMon
represents the latest step in OPNET's strategy to ensure that its
end-to-end application performance management solutions address the
particular challenges of virtual computing environments", stated Alain
Cohen, President and CTO of OPNET. "Recently OPNET also released OPNET
Panorama??? 6.0, a solution for real-time monitoring of Java and .NET
applications with new and unique capabilities for fine-grain monitoring
of resources and application behavior in VMware environments."
