The fully customizable dashboard offers an intuitive and dynamic, web-based GUI which enables teams in all IT domains to collaborate with confidence, quickly answer questions, resolve issues, and deliver the right information at the right time. Through the dashboard GUI, you can effectively perform comprehensive analysis, collaborate, and make informed decisions based on definitive insights about how applications and infrastructure are performing.
Intelligent Topologies provide a high-level summary of what is going on in your infrastructure, allowing you to quickly identify emergent issues, and enabling you to understand the impacts and interdependencies between application workloads and infrastructure. Sparklines show key trends related to performance, health and utilization, and alarm badges identify if there is a current alarm event related to the entity or one of its sub-components. You can display topologies for any application(s).
With VirtualWisdom Applied Analytics, we’ve taken the expertise gained from working with hundreds of enterprise customers and built that wisdom right into the platform. The analysis that used to take experts hours or even days is now executed in seconds – turning data into actionable answers by leveraging machine-based learning. Examples are:
“With VirtualWisdom in our environment we were able to tune and optimize overall SAN performance and improve IO response time by 50%.”
Josh Morton, VP of IT
The VirtualWisdom Platform Appliance is the industry’s only purpose-built, enterprise-class, Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM) appliance. It persists and correlates real-time data from VMs, servers, SAN and NAS networks—with I/O metrics from the Virtual Server Probe, Network Switch Probe, and “off-the-wire” from the hardware Performance Probes—forming a complete view of your end-to-end system between virtual machines and the storage environment.
Virtual Instruments’ TAP Patch Panel System integrates Traffic Access Points (TAPs) with best-of-breed fiber patch panel components to make fiber cable deployments more manageable and maintainable. TAPs transparently provide a passive, out-of-band, full line rate copy of all traffic to VirtualWisdom’s SAN and NAS Performance Probes.
The TAP Patch Panel System provides a broad range of streamlined options for implementing TAPs into both new and existing cable plants.
Our family of hardware-based SAN Performance Probes are the most advanced, high capacity full line-rate data inspection and analysis devices available. They inspect, process and analyze every FC frame header and SCSI Command on the Fibre Channel SAN links in real-time. They capture the true, unaltered, I/O profile of the actual application traffic, detecting application performance slowdowns and transmission errors by measuring every SCSI I/O transaction from start to finish.
The SAN Performance Probe family consists of a (16G) 12-port model, a (16G) 24-port model, and an ultra-high-density (8G) 48-port enterprise edition. This product family delivers the full range of cost and density options customers require.
ProbeNTAP leverages an agentless software API to capture health and utilization statistics for Network Appliance Storage Arrays (ONTAP 8, 9, Clustered NFS). VirtualWisdom uses these statistics in conjunction with advanced discovery and reporting to provide users with additional context for understanding system-wide health, utilization and performance.

The Network Switch ProbeSW is an agentless software probe that utilizes storage and network information from SMI-S and SNMP MIB (management information base) to gather switch performance and link error statistics in a non-intrusive manner. These critical switch statistics are correlated with other system-wide metrics and presented within the intuitive VirtualWisdom interface as an entity.
The explosive growth in multi-tenancy and hybrid data centers creates immense complexity for managing IT infrastructure—and business risks increase exponentially—because there’s no way to guarantee performance with device-specific tools and constantly changing workload behavior. Businesses are flying blind and hoping that over-provisioning will solve their performance problems… ironically, this makes it worse.
In the highly shared environment of the modern, hybrid data center, understanding where applications live on the infrastructure, their relative business value, and how they are stressing the infrastructure is essential for ensuring the performance and availability of your critical applications.
VirtualWisdom contextualizes and analyzes an unprecedented breadth and depth of data—continuously collected across the end-to-end infrastructure in true real-time. This highly accurate and comprehensive solution enables customers to start proactively managing performance, stop reactive troubleshooting, and achieve cost optimization across the hybrid data center.
