451 Research – November 2012
451 Research analyst Rachel Chalmers reviews AccelOps 3.6 in an Impact Report, stating: "AccelOps' ability to speak the languages of both security and systems is surprisingly rare, given how useful it is. The new (Amazon) EC2 and geo-location features in v.3.6 are evidence of a company with its finger on the pulse of the market, while deeper visibility into Oracle and Microsoft databases shows that AccelOps is not afraid to do the unglamorous work as well.
"AccelOps has grown its customer base rapidly over the past 18 months, has refreshed its war chest and has come out with a polished release that demonstrates attunement to the direction and velocity of enterprise cloud adoption."

"There is quite a bit to be said for combining some NOC and SOC resources, and that is where AccelOps enters the picture. The AccelOps product is not just a monitor of monitors, though. It is, in its own right, a legitimate analysis tool that covers a very broad range of protocols and devices. The result is that the audience for this tool is as broad as its abilities. If you have a medium-to-large network to manage, this one is worth looking at." More...

"Companies are looking to augment and enhance their ability to monitor the health of their IT infrastructure, supplement their event management and gain an early warning of outages based on trends and patterns, while also gaining a view on how potential issues can affect the IT services delivered to the business. Without proper event management, IT operations can be deluged with event storms, numerous false positives and a 'sea of red' on their consoles," said David Williams, research vice president at Gartner. "Through integration with performance-monitoring, these tools can associate an event with a broader service impact and enable IT operations personnel to proactively address performance-based service degradation issues in-line with business priorities."
