Veritas delivers i3 app performance update
Making good on promises sworn at its user conference in May, Veritas Software this week will announce the release of the latest version of its APM (application performance management) software, which tightly couples with the company’s software storage products. Veritas i3 7.0 integrates with Veritas Storage Foundation and Veritas Cluster Server, allowing administrators to collect information from clusters and files to identify the root cause of service degradation. The software also adds application-availability management capabilities and enables administrators to create and regularly schedule synthetic transactions to test and measure application availability and response time. Veritas i3 Version 7.0 will be generally available in November. Pricing starts at $9,200 for a four-CPU environment.
