Carahsoft Leverages VirtualWisdom4 to Guarantee Government IT Infrastructure Availability

Powerful Infrastructure Performance Management Solutions Now Available to Public Sector via Carahsoft GSA Schedule

SAN JOSE, Calif. & RESTON, Va.–Virtual Instruments, the leader in Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM) for physical, virtual and cloud computing environments, today announced a partnership with Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, to deliver best-in-class performance management and monitoring solutions and insights to the public sector. Under the agreement, Carahsoft will serve as one of Virtual Instruments’ primary government aggregators, making the company’s industry-leading VirtualWisdom4 IPM platform available to federal, state and local government agencies via Carahsoft’s GSA schedule.

Government IT teams must ensure that services, data and applications are readily available and performing optimally for end users at all times. Unplanned outages and performance degradations are not an option — and having the ability to guarantee performance and availability is critical — particularly given the federal mandates requiring greater use of virtualized and cloud infrastructures. To be successful, civilian, defense and intelligence agencies must have highly accurate, real-time situational awareness and visibility into the performance of their most demanding and critical application workloads. Virtual Instruments’ technology and services accomplish this by helping these agencies ensure the highest level of IT infrastructure and application performance at the optimal cost and with the lowest risk.

“Deriving the most value from infrastructure investments without sacrificing performance is top-of-mind for every agency in the government. With the addition of VirtualWisdom to our offerings, we can now ensure that our customers and channel partners have a solution for accurately monitoring and managing real-time infrastructure performance, health and utilization across the open-systems stack, enabling them to drive greater utilization and performance against their existing assets, extend the longevity of their investments and allot for future consumption in a cost-effective manner,” said Craig P. Abod, Carahsoft president. “We look forward to working with the Virtual Instruments team to drive demand for the company’s solutions across the public sector market.”

Virtual Instruments’ solutions enable enterprises and government agencies to maintain continuous availability and consistent performance for their IT application infrastructures. The company’s flagship product, VirtualWisdom4, is the only IPM solution that nonintrusively delivers a comprehensive and unbiased understanding of how virtualized, heterogeneous infrastructures are performing — and delivers definitive insights into how and where improvements can be made.

“Government agencies are vital to national productivity, security and operations, and have a responsibility to perform at the highest level,” said John Gentry, vice president of marketing and alliances at Virtual Instruments. “As their IT application infrastructures are increasingly seen as inseparable from, and enabling to, organizational productivity and responsiveness, agencies at the federal, state and local levels require solutions that help them meet performance and availability standards now and going forward. Partnering with Carahsoft allows us to help our government seamlessly implement crucial IPM technology and help keep our nation’s systems performing consistently, reliably and predictably.”

Virtual Instruments’ software, hardware and services are available immediately via Carahsoft’s GSA Schedule No. GS-35F-0119Y.
