Visual Network Systems has unveiled a product aimed at mid-market firms that analyses the performance of applications running on networks on a single platform.
Visual Performance Manager Xpress offers an all-in-one build of components previously available individually to give IT managers what the firm claims is a complete view of application performance.
Customers can drill down to find specific information on tasks to discover the cause of reported problems, including whether a fault on an application or network lies with the user or the system.
"Mid-market firms face many of the same challenges as large enterprises, such as the need to determine the effects of applications on the network, or resolving issues occurring on remote office networks," said Visual Network Systems marketing director Belinda Yung-Rubke.
"By combining the tools into a single product we can offer a cost saving of some 50 per cent compared with buying the products individually, but keep the same level of monitoring capability."
VMP Xpress is designed to sit in the datacentre in the location closest to the server farm.
Yung-Rubke added that, if a company grows in size and needs to use specialised components, VMP Xpress can be turned into a dedicated application monitoring tool to ensure that it remains a relevant purchase.
VMP Xpress will be available in around a month's time and will retail for $60,000 to $100,000 (£38,000 to £64,000) depending on the number of netflow devices a customer has installed.
The announcement is the first from Visual Network Systems since it was relaunched as a new division of Fluke Networks in June.
