Enterprise Cloud Provider Key Information Systems Leverages Virtual Instruments’ VirtualWisdom to Guarantee Performance and Availability for Customers

Infrastructure Performance Management Solution Supports Critical Infrastructure as a Service Channel Offering

SAN JOSE, Calif. – February 4, 2015 – Virtual Instruments, the leader in Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM) for physical, virtual and cloud computing environments, today announced that its VirtualWisdom IPM platform is providing Key Information Systems, a leading enterprise cloud provider, with real-time insights for its Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering to customers. For its customers who expect a zero downtime, enterprise-class offering, Key Information Systems is utilizing VirtualWisdom to ensure its cloud is up and running at optimal performance 24/7/365.

Key Information Systems, a regional systems integrator with world-class compute, storage and networking solutions, and professional services for the most advanced software-defined data centers, is among a group of leading Virtual Instruments partners that are first-to-market with enterprise-class hybrid cloud services offerings. By embedding VirtualWisdom into its hybrid cloud service offering, KeyCloud, Key Information Systems proactively monitors the health of its IaaS offering, gaining the comprehensive visibility and definitive insights that help ensure the highest levels of performance and availability for its enterprise customers.

“By integrating the VirtualWisdom platform directly into our cloud offering, we can guarantee a performance level for our customers that provides us with a competitive edge in the marketplace,” said Lief Morin, president, Key Information Systems. “Guaranteed performance is an integral component of running enterprise-class infrastructure and should be a core component of any cloud provider with customers whose businesses depend on continuous availability. When our customers choose KeyCloud, they can be assured of the highest levels of performance and availability due to the integration of the VirtualWisdom platform.”

For optimal visibility into enterprise systems, IT teams need insights not only into the cloud, but also into the entire integrated heterogeneous infrastructure. Virtual Instruments works with its partners to help ensure this end-to-end visibility for their service offerings that span on- and off-premise environments. VirtualWisdom helps partners drive the highest performance and the lowest risk for their IaaS offerings by enabling them to quickly and accurately identify and remediate performance-impacting events—and proactively alerting them to emergent issues that can potentially impact systemwide latency and overall health before they become problems.

“Historically, cloud providers have been unable to guarantee performance for their customers or deliver real-time analytics as to the health of the customer’s infrastructure,” said John Gentry, vice president of marketing and alliances at Virtual Instruments. “Our partnership with Key Information Systems demonstrates a solution to this challenge. We’ve increased our partner’s capability to provide guaranteed performance in the hybrid cloud environment, as well as enhance system visibility for its customers.”
