Gartner Names Hyperic "Cool Vendor" in Latest Research Report

SAN FRANCISCO, March 19 -- Hyperic, Inc., the leading provider of web application performance monitoring software for the datacenter and the cloud, today announced that it has been included in Gartner's "Cool Vendors in Cloud Computing Management and Professional Services, 2009" report by Milind Govekar, Cameron Haight, David W. Cearley and Lydia Leong.
Gartner's report states that key innovation in cloud computing management will be provided by the startup vendors. According to the report, published on March 17, 2009, "cloud computing is becoming one of the most visible sourcing option for infrastructure and operations professionals. I&O professionals, thus, must be aware of how they will manage this environment from an availability, performance, disaster recovery and service aggregation point of view. This research assists them in understanding which technologies and vendors are emerging to manage cloud computing technologies to help manage service levels for the business."
"Although cloud computing has opened up new doors for easy and cost-effective delivery of web applications, it has also meant a new wave of application management challenges that legacy technologies are simply not equipped to handle," said Javier Soltero, CEO of Hyperic. "Our technology is designed to pick up where the incumbents left off by marrying enterprise-class monitoring and management with the intelligence and automation functionality that cloud applications demand. In my opinion, this recognition by Gartner underscores our innovation and importance to the market, and we are honored to be included as a 'cool vendor.'"
