SevOne Announces Integration with Juniper Networks Contrail

Press Release

The world's most scalable performance management platform to monitor SDN deployments

WILMINGTON, DE - September 16, 2013 - SevOne, provider of the world's most scalable performance monitoring platform, today announced it has joined the Juniper Networks SDN Technology Partner Program and will integrate its network and IT performance management solution with Juniper Networks® Contrail, a standards-based and highly scalable network virtualization and intelligence solution for software-defined networks (SDN).

The Juniper Networks Contrail network virtualization solution, in operation with the OpenStack or CloudStack orchestrators, includes an open, standards-based SDN controller that virtualizes the network to enable faster automation and orchestration of hybrid cloud environments. Integration of SevOne's performance management solution with Contrail will allow customers to have a single pane of glass for performance monitoring in virtual networks. Furthermore, the service chaining capabilities of Contrail enable dynamic redirect of traffic for network monitoring and troubleshooting by SevOne technology thereby offering a flexible monitoring solution to end customers. 

"As a Juniper Networks SDN Technology Partner, SevOne has positioned itself at the forefront of performance monitoring for NFV-style network services," said Vess Bakalov, CTO and Co-Founder of SevOne. "Working together with Juniper Networks, SevOne is able to provide customers with the fastest, most scalable performance monitoring solution across heterogeneous and federated cloud networks." 

Casey Murray, Vice President of Global Strategic Alliances for SevOne, noted, "In working with the Juniper Networks Contrail solution, we address a primary concern of any customer considering the move to an SDN or Network as a Service deployment - how to leverage a SDN without losing real-time visibility of how things perform - which is the first step in quickly identifying and rectifying network service disruption." Murray continued, "SevOne wants to work with network vendors that demonstrate thought leadership and a desire to support multi-vendor networks. Juniper Networks is a perfect fit."

SevOne provides network monitoring, alerting, reporting and troubleshooting capabilities that help customers detect and avoid performance events before they impact the business. With the average cost of downtime estimated to cost companies anywhere from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars per hour, any change to an organization's infrastructure - such as a SDN deployment - must be closely monitored. 

As a Juniper Networks SDN Technology Partner, SevOne will have access to Juniper Network's Contrail platform development resources, is included in the platform beta cycle, and performs verification testing with Juniper to ensure levels of interoperability.

"Juniper Networks is pleased to be working with SevOne to deliver enterprise-class and service provider performance management to our customers," Aruna Ravichandran, vice president, marketing and strategy, Software Solutions Division at Juniper Networks. "SevOne is perfectly situated to address the performance monitoring requirements of big data infrastructures. Not only does it provide proactive alerts of potential issues across cloud-based networks, it also reveals critical performance metrics that prove the success of an SDN deployment." 

"Just as Juniper Networks Contrail helps customers speed service deployment by creating dynamic and automated service chains, SevOne enables speed of deployment by providing an all-in-one performance management solution that significantly reduces the administrative burden required to monitor virtualized networks," added Bakalov.
