SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwired – September 18, 2017) – Virtual Instruments, the leader in application-centric infrastructure performance management, announced today that it has been positioned as a “Value Leader” and the vendor with the “Best Predictive Analytics” capabilities in Enterprise Management Associates’ (EMA’s) “2017 Radar Report on Storage Intelligence.”

The EMA Radar Report evaluates leading storage intelligence vendors based on criteria such as architecture and integration; deployment and administration; and cost advantage. For the purpose of this report, EMA defines “value” as the ratio derived from strength of a product set against its cost efficiency. Customers interviewed by EMA stated that Virtual Instruments’ offerings are easy to deploy, intuitive to manage, and offer support for managing virtualization layers, creating custom reports, and modelling workloads. Customers also noted Virtual Instruments’ exceptional customer service.

“EMA’s evaluation of [Virtual Instruments’] solution architecture revealed it provides the most comprehensive array of analytics capabilities of all the platforms evaluated in this report,” said Steve Brasen, managing research director at EMA and author of the report. “Additionally, EMA is very impressed with Virtual Instruments’ vision of enabling dynamic workload placements and configuration change recommendations based on application performance requirements.”

In addition to positioning Virtual Instruments as a Value Leader in the report, EMA also honored Virtual Instruments with its “Best Predictive Analytics” Award. EMA recognized Virtual Instruments for its strong machine learning capabilities, including descriptive, prescriptive, diagnostic, and – most notably – predictive analytics. By processing millions of individual metrics per second and presenting the results in an easily digestible graphical format, Virtual Instruments enables its users to easily identify future states, potential problems, and optimal configurations.

“Virtual Instruments’ designation as a Value Leader and Best Predictive Analytics vendor by EMA underscores our commitment to helping customers optimize their server, network and storage infrastructure investments,” said Len Rosenthal, chief marketing officer at Virtual Instruments. “As noted in the comprehensive report, recognized vendors must display leadership both through their storage intelligence products and a strong commitment to servicing their customers. Our app-centric approach to enabling our customers to ensure the performance, health and utilization of their infrastructures in the context of their key applications sets Virtual Instruments apart from all other performance management solutions.”
