Sightline Assure Provides Much Needed Visibility into the Mission-Critical Applications Running in the Plant IT Environment
Fairfax, VA – November 4, 2015 – Sightline Systems, a real-time operations intelligence solution company focused on operational capacity, root-cause analysis and performance management, announced the launch of Sightline Assure™, a simple, yet powerful IT performance monitoring solution that’s purpose-built to maintain the health and availability of mission-critical applications running in continuously-available IT environments.
Built upon Sightline’s powerful Enterprise Data Manager (EDM™) monitoring and analytics engine, which collects and analyzes hundreds of real-time system metrics to optimize the performance of Fortune 500 IT environments, Sightline Assure has been developed to meet the specific needs of the manufacturing industry and integrates with leading industrial automation HMI systems.
“Industrial automation systems are not traditionally managed by corporate IT departments, they’re often run by engineers, HMI operators and non-IT experts,” said Brandon Witte, CEO and President, Sightline Systems. “Although manufacturing plants and factories have invested heavily in their IT infrastructure, they’ve had no easy way of knowing whether their mission-critical applications were continuously running or at risk of going down. Today, they do.”
Sightline Assure is a lightweight, easy-to-use web application designed to provide plant managers and production line operators with full visibility into the plant IT environment without the complexity of traditional IT-industry software. Available as an affordable, annual software subscription, Sightline Assure identifies system performance issues ahead of time to ensure uninterrupted production, prevent unplanned downtime and maintain peak productivity.
Sightline’s proprietary analytics engine correlates data across multiple Windows, Linux and VMware servers to anticipate performance issues, proactively sends alert notifications and prevents downtime and data loss before it occurs. Sightline Assure continuously monitors physical and virtual system resources, performs hundreds of ongoing CPU, disk space, memory and network usage checks and automatically restarts unavailable applications.
Assure’s simple, easy-to-use dashboard highlights all active alerts and provides a comprehensive alert history for all mission-critical servers, operating systems and monitored applications, detailing the duration of a problem and how long the alert was active until it was resolved. Assure also provides users with early warning reports of capacity issues, degraded application performance and critical system errors.
Sightline Assure is now available direct or through a global network of partners that provide software sales, configuration and deployment, training and ongoing service and support.
