NLayers Announces Insight 4.5

    Online News published in DMReview.com
December 6, 2005

NLayers announced nLayers InSight 4.5, the latest version of its application discovery and mapping solution.  With this release, nLayers is introducing storage and network discovery capabilities to InSight, making it the first solution capable of discovering, mapping and tracking all service components: software, servers, storage and network devices in a single, comprehensive view. 

As IT operations departments strive to adopt a more business-oriented management approach, they grapple with the challenge of tracking IT services that span technology areas that are traditionally managed as separate entities.  By automatically discovering and illustrating all the components and dependencies that make up an IT service, including the network and storage tiers, nLayers InSight 4.5 provides a foundation for improving service delivery, reducing operational waste, understanding the impact of IT changes and complying with financial and security regulations.

nLayers InSight is an agentless real-time solution that plugs into the data center and automatically discovers and maps the complex relationships between applications and technology infrastructure, providing an end-to-end "living model" of the IT environment.  Enhancements in version 4.5 extend the breadth and depth of nLayers InSight's discovery capabilities while increasing the solution's scalability and ease-of-use.  New features include:

  • Native discovery of layer 2 and 3 devices

  • Active Discovery Enhancements

  • Extended Fingerprint Factory Capabilities

With version 4.5, nLayers has made it even easier to define a business application and create a new fingerprint even in environments with complex custom applications and mainframe platforms. Unlike other discovery solutions that rely on configuration files or blueprints of known, unmodified packaged applications to define a business application, nLayers InSight 4.5 tracks the actual interaction of an application, making it possible to map and "fingerprint" any custom application, regardless of language or platform.
