Welcome to Foglight for Virtualization, Enterprise Edition

Welcome to Foglight for Virtualization, Enterprise Edition

Foglight™ for Virtualization, Enterprise Edition (hereafter referred to as Foglight for Virtualization EE) simplifies application performance monitoring and reduces the skills and effort required to manage applications, the user experience, and the supporting infrastructure. Unlike other solutions, Foglight for Virtualization EE uses a single code base, and has a model-driven design that couples fast deployment and accelerated time-to-value. It offers the modular flexibility required to deliver a range of capabilities and sophistication to meet the needs of any organization—from those still focused on technology-centric monitoring to those that have completed the transition to application-centric or transactional monitoring.

Foglight for Virtualization EE performs equally well in physical, virtual, and mixed infrastructure environments, providing visibility into issues affecting the application and end-user experience. Intuitive workflows help you quickly move from the symptom to the root cause in the application, database, infrastructure, or network to resolve issues, reducing mean time to resolution. Predefined and drag-and-drop dashboards provide insight that is tailored to each stakeholder. By offering comprehensive visibility into your monitored environment, Foglight for Virtualization EE helps ensure that cross-functional teams collaborate on and prioritize issues that matter most to the business.
