When my family comes home from school and work, they all immediately go online in some way, shape, or form - watching YouTube, checking Facebook and email, and doing homework, from any number of devices; laptop, iPhone, or PC. In fact there are about 12 devices in my home alone that can access the internet. I can only assume this occurs in most households. I thought to myself, our cable operator must be aware of the explosive spike in traffic around 4:30 to 5pm each day and treat it as normal behavior vs. an anomaly that must be investigated.

Before our inaugural EMEA Partner Summit, we took the opportunity to quiz our partners on their key 2011 customer initiatives and on how working with SevOne would help achieve them. We weren’t surprised to see that our channel partners are focused on integrating SevOne into their traditional network management offering – after all that is a primary reason why we recruited them, for their expertise in delivering solutions. However, we were pleasantly surprised to see their adoption of NetFlow into their solution set. An overwhelming 86% of the SevOne partners said that they would use or plan to use SevOne NetFlow as part of an overall solution they offer. This is additional validation to the research from Jim Frey of Enterprise Management Associates that was presented in Why NetFlow is a must-have for Network Management in 2011.

As the Middle East’s leading provider of IT services, Al Jol has been quick to respond.
Couldn’t make it to London for Cisco Live? For some, nothing can replace the onsite experience of an event like this one; however busy schedules and reduced travel budgets are making it tough for folks to attend in person. Luckily, Cisco offers a parallel virtual event alternative so no one will miss out on the learning, if not the fun!
ACS, a Xerox Company, had a need in its network services group within the ACS IT outsourcing organization. They wanted to expand and upgrade its arsenal of solutions for providing fault, performance, telecom and other management services related to its network service offerings with a single, standard tool.
In a previous video whiteboard from our CTO, Vess Bakalov discussed Flexible NetFlow and highlighted what is different in this version and why NetFlow v9 and IPFIX flexibility and extensibility were added to address key performance management requirements including adding application awareness.
As IT silos continue to converge, especially in virtualized data centers and with cloud-based services, an increasing number of customers have expressed their need for SevOne to monitor more than their network infrastructure. With virtualization and cloud services adoption increasing, we are seeing that the network and server operations teams need to expand and standardize their monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities to include virtual server infrastructure and cloud services.
SevOne’s EMEA Manager of Systems Engineering, Nicholas Reid, attended the 2011 Data Centre World exhibition and conference, the UK’s largest and fastest growing event for data center managers, IT professionals and channel partners.

He was in good company, with the likes of Microsoft and Capgemini espousing on the same stage over the course of the two day event.
The Office of Management and Budget’s cloud-first policy has been all over the news lately (this blog post from InfoWorld sums it up nicely) ever since the Federal CIO announced a plan that is pushing federal departments and agencies to adopt cloud-based technology solutions. Now more than ever, it is critical for federal agencies to have accurate, dependable insights around the performance of mission critical applications and network availability, utilization and uptime as they move to the cloud.
