As a network monitoring tool, it is important to NetEvidence that Highlight is available to its customers at the highest possible availability. They therefore required a secure and reliable hosting environment. NetEvidence was also facing substantial difficulties in simulating Highlight in the testing environment. Andy Scutt, Operations Director at NetEvidence, explained: "As part of our sales process, we need to be able to demonstrate Highlight to new business prospects; but historically, simulating it in the lab, and building and reinitialising parallel test servers proved to be a major effort, with a great deal of associated costs. We needed greater flexibility, so we started to look for a partner that could host the platform for us, remove the burden of managing our IT, and allow us to get on with running our business." The solution After a thorough evaluation of the market, NetEvidence chose Claranet as its hosting provider. As part of the hosting solution, Claranet worked with NetEvidence to migrate the existing infrastructure to Claranet's environment before testing and the "go-live". To ensure resilience, Claranet also provided the hosting platform across two data centres to guarantee business continuity and availability of the service. Following on from the successful application of the hosting platform, NetEvidence began implementation of Claranet's Virtual Data Centre (VDC) offering. An integrated Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), VDC combines the provision of network and compute resources, and offers a new way of managing infrastructure. About NetEvidence Headquartered in Surrey, NetEvidence specialises in private network and application monitoring. Its premier offering, Highlight, offers businesses visibility into network and application behaviour. Highlight is delivered using a Software as a Service (SaaS) model through network providers, such as Claranet, to augment their managed network or connectivity products. NetEvidence relies on giving their clients continual visibility into their network and application behaviours. Once an enterprise network is connected to the service, Highlight collects real-time data 24x7, monitoring both the infrastructure and the applications and services that run over it. Both service provider and customer have instant views of what's happening, using a browser, from anywhere. There's no software to install and little or no hardware, as most of the data comes from existing devices.
