Akorri's First Asia Pacific Customer Uses BalancePoint to Manage and Optimize Its Own IT Infrastructure as Well as Customer Environments

LITTLETON, MA--(Marketwire) - Akorri, Inc., the leader in virtual infrastructure performance and capacity management for the dynamic data center, announced today ASE IT Networks, a global Cloud Managed Services Provider for the small and mid tier market based in Australia, is leveraging the company's award-winning BalancePoint software to monitor, manage and optimize infrastructure performance for its managed cloud services. ASE IT Networks is using BalancePoint to assure performance for both its own infrastructure and in customer environments to provide Infrastructure-as-a-service and Application-as-a-service cloud computing out of its Sydney, Australia and Silicon Valley, California data centers.

"As a cloud service provider with a uniquely broad offering -- providing desktop application to data center infrastructure services to an expanding global market -- it is critical that we have end-to-end visibility of all our virtual and physical infrastructure, which BalancePoint provides," said Andrew Sjoquist, Managing Director at ASE IT Networks.

"The managed cloud services IT environment is much more complex and difficult to manage due to its multi-tenant nature, creating many more potential areas of contention," continued Sjoquist. "We have to make absolutely certain performance issues do not affect other customers. This is why BalancePoint is essential to our success, providing proactive problem resolution, a system-wide view into the virtual and storage environment and deep intelligence we haven't seen in other virtualization management tools."

As the adoption of cloud services grow, ASE IT Networks plans to open additional data centers in the U.S. and Europe, and will leverage BalancePoint for capacity planning to predict when and how much equipment they will need.

"Infrastructure Performance Management solutions such as Akorri's BalancePoint provide cloud service providers with a unique value that is critical for ensuring top IT service levels," said Bernd Harzog, Analyst with The Virtualization Practice. "IPM solutions go beyond data provided by hypervisor management tools, to augment that with information from all underlying resources, providing analysis and metrics for the entire infrastructure that assures optimal performance for all cloud customers."

"We are proud to be working with an innovative company like ASE IT Networks, as this is a great example of the value Akorri brings to cloud computing implementations," said Allan Wallack, CEO of Akorri. "We have been saying for some time that BalancePoint is a necessary stepping stone to get to the cloud, and this announcement clearly demonstrates that BalancePoint gives cloud service providers the assurance to deliver optimal infrastructure performance."
