Virtual Instruments lands in Australia with PlexNet partnership

11 Oct 17

Virtual Instruments, a company specialising in application-centric infrastructure performance management, has announced its sales expansion into Australia, partnering with value-added reseller PlexNet.

The partnership will give PlexNet full distribution rights for all of Virtual Instruments’ solutions, including the VirtualWisdom infrastructure performance monitoring platform and the Load DynamiX Enterprise storage performance testing and validation platform.

PlexNet is a specialist in networking, application, infrastructure and security testing and analysis, working with companies from around the globe to deliver storage and network testing technology to the Australian market.

They say the partnership will provide customers with the opportunity to more easily measure and guarantee performance-based service level agreements (SLAs) and increase the overall value of their infrastructure.

Dom Fitzgibbon, PlexNet director of sales and technical services says his company is looking forward to working with Virtual instruments to deliver their solution set to customers.

“We are excited about adding Virtual Instruments’ app-centric IPM products to our portfolio as they address a critical need for a vendor-agnostic performance monitoring and testing solutions for the emerging hybrid data centre,” he says.

“Our experience is that customers require end-to-end visibility from the user to the storage systems and control of their digital service delivery. PlexNet has responded to our clients’ needs by partnering with Virtual Instruments to deliver the outcomes that customers need and expect.”

According to Virtual Instruments, their solutions address an ongoing global trend of enterprises seeking ways to make more intelligent decisions about their infrastructure in order to better control escalating costs and assure performance.

They point to a recent report from the Enterprise Strategy Group, which showed that 94% of respondents said their organisation ensures performance and availability by using monitoring tools, and 54% of those respondents prefer to use vendor-independent monitoring tools.

Sheen Khoury, Virtual Instruments executive vice president of worldwide sales says, “As we continue to expand globally, our goal is to work with highly regarded regional partners with proven capabilities to help customers make more intelligent deployment decisions and optimise their infrastructure investments.

“We’re looking forward to working closely with PlexNet and our other partners across the globe to help them offer highly differentiated products and services that enable them to become vendor-independent trusted advisors to their customers.”
