Network Physics Releases Distributed Network Intelligence Tool

Network Physics has introduced NetSensory Enterprise Architecture, a distributed intelligence tool that promises to provide global applications infrastructure visibility, troubleshooting and reporting. The architecture is built on a new distributed operating system, the NetSensoryT OS 4.0, which runs on the company's NP-2000 appliance and a new hardware appliance, the NP-DirectorT.

The solution is designed to provide global visibility to help enterprises ensure the integrity and security of their entire applications infrastructure across the network, from servers to clients. It uses the distributed intelligence of NP-2000 appliances at the edge, enabling broad visibility into end-to-end application service flows, management across all converged network types, and unlimited real-time scalability.

"Today's centralized management tools lack application and user relevance, can't scale, aren't real-time, and fail to provide clear visibility across converging public and private networks," Bob Quillin, vice president of marketing and product management at Network Physics said in a statement. "The NetSensory Enterprise Architecture is the only platform designed to answer the needs of the new distributed environment by relying on edge intelligence and a federated database model."

NetSensory OS and the NP-Director are now shipping. Typical initial deployments, consisting of two to three NP-2000s and one NP-Director, range from $150,000 to $250,000.
