Heroix introduces its Longitude Hyper-V application to monitor Microsoft Hyper-V hypervisor. This follows the Heroix VMware vSphere performance monitoring application which increased sales by 36 percent in a year. Longitude is a feature-rich easy-to-use affordable monitoring solution that companies use to track the health of their entire IT infrastructure: multiple operating systems web servers databases messaging and networks. We understand that companies with large IT environments may adopt more than one hypervisor for different types of applications workloads and infrastructure while they are also integrating technologies such as OpenStack into their IT strategy explained Rick Lane CEO Heroix. This increases the need for monitoring software that can accommodate multiple hypervisors and provide a single pane of glass view into the health and availability of IT resources. Heroix is meeting that need for our customers.
