New TeamQuest Tool Pinpoints IT Risk

TeamQuest, a provider of IT capacity planning and management solutions, has introduced a new release of its flagship TeamQuest Performance Software. This latest release is intended to help enable organizations to assess the health and potential areas of risk in their IT infrastructure, by applying automated and accurate predictive algorithms using data sources within their IT enterprise.

“It’s common for IT analytics software vendors to claim that they have predictive and proactive capabilities, but the software underlying their solutions uses simplistic approximations for how IT infrastructure scales, which can lead to unreliable predictions” said Bill Andruss, chief technology officer of TeamQuest. “TeamQuest Performance Software uses advanced queuing theory to predict throughput and response time - not just resource utilization.”

TeamQuest Performance Software enables organizations to balance performance and cost of their IT infrastructure while minimizing risk. This release expands the advanced capabilities found in TeamQuest Predictor and AutoPredict by providing the option of using existing data collectors deployed within the IT environment. This makes it possible for companies to leverage TeamQuest’s advanced and automated predictive analytics without duplicating or replacing their existing performance data collection and capacity infrastructure.

TeamQuest automated predictive analytics are now compatible with commonly used management frameworks, including Tivoli performance data collection and HP performance data collection.

The new TeamQuest Performance Software also supports measuring and analyzing the performance and capacity of Amazon EC2 instances. Customers gain the ability to analyze EC2-hosted services with services running on in-house IT infrastructure, which increases environment visibility for shops using hybrid cloud environments. Additionally, customers can perform data collection, analysis, predictive analytics, and capacity planning for Ubuntu, a popular Linux cloud computing platform.
