Centerity Systems Announces Strategic Partnership with Lenovo

Combined offering provides customers with end-to-end visibility through SAP HANA application

Newton, MA — April 9, 2018 — Centerity Systems Inc., the leading provider of unified IT & OT performance analytics & business service management (BSM) software platforms, today announced that Lenovo Data Center Group (DCG), a leader in providing innovative enterprise data center technologies, has entered into a global partnership and reseller agreement with Centerity. Centerity will provide Lenovo with a unique analytic layer for high-end data center applications and solutions, including solutions for SAP HANA, big data, hyper-converged infrastructure and applications, to enable customers to deliver high Service Level Agreements (SLA) and business continuity.

Centerity’s solutions evaluate various aspects of BSM performance for information and operational assets identifying performance bottlenecks and ensuring a consistent response to performance problems. As such, Centerity plays a critical role in ensuring profitability for data centers and managed service providers (DC/MSP). Lenovo DCG server, storage and networking offerings have been engineered to improve resiliency, performance, and reduce total cost of ownership. In addition, they can simplify deployment to accelerate business advantage, enabling some of the most reliable, flexible, and secure data centers in the world. Centerity was embraced by Lenovo following a thorough evaluation of its performance analytics capabilities for big data (SAP HANA, Hadoop) and Converged/ Hyper-converged (Lenovo HX) environments.

The Lenovo and Centerity offering provides capability to monitor and manage the layers of solution stack including data center infrastructure such as servers, storage and networking through critical business applications resulting in improved business performance and service levels. The combined offering provides end-to-end visibility of the solution stack through interactive dashboards and enables trend analysis resulting in reduced operational complexity and the ability to anticipate needs for critical IT processes.

Customers report increased reliability and uptime with lower costs and fewer SLA penalties, which results in greater operational readiness and better CSAT scores. All of these benefits combine to accelerate the rollout of new systems and solutions and to streamline the response to IT changes. At the system administrator level, the combined Lenovo and Centerity solution further simplifies oversight of complex data centers and application environments helping to improve the speed and accuracy of troubleshooting and fault isolation.

Initially focused on simplifying oversight and administration of SAP HANA implementations, Lenovo discovered that Centerity’s approach to BSM solution complements Lenovo XClarity’s systems management capabilities and delivers new value to business and IT executives. Furthermore, the speed with which Centerity could be implemented, configured, and start generating value, was another key differentiator.

Kamran Amini, GM & VP, Data Center Infrastructure at Lenovo said, “The combination of Centerity and Lenovo solutions enables us to deliver the best experience for SAP HANA customers by providing complete, end-to-end performance analytics for complex IT environments. When combined with Lenovo systems, Centerity’s unique capabilities for monitoring and managing data center landscapes, including SAP HANA environments, helps ensure Lenovo customers experience maximum performance, reliability and return from their investment.”

Roi Keren, CEO of Centerity Systems said, “Being selected as a Lenovo partner reinforces the importance of Centerity’s approach to BSM and IT operational analytics. Our customers are receiving both top-line and bottom-line results, reporting reduced IT downtime, faster mean-time-to-restore (MTTR), and fewer false positives, which results in better SLA performance, increased reliability, and higher CSAT scores, all of which improves their ability to generate new business.”

 

Centerity Systems Secures $10 Million Strategic Investment by Merlin International

Investment enables joint collaboration and global distribution of secure, enterprise-class performance analytics and business services management solutions

NEWTON, Mass. & VIENNA, Va.–Centerity, the leading provider of advanced performance analytics and business services management (BSM) for complex technology environments (IT & IoT), today announced it has received $10 million in funding from Merlin International, a provider of cybersecurity solutions that enable organizations to protect their most critical business assets. Centerity intends to use the proceeds of the new investment to double its Research & Development (R&D) center and expand its sales, marketing, and distribution organizations.

Centerity’s platform is particularly well-suited for complex IT and IoT environments, especially those that manage IT for multiple organizations or that oversee a mix of on-premise, Cloud, and Edge devices. The platform enables organizations to rapidly achieve real-time, end-to-end visibility of their entire information and operational technology (IT/OT) environments, to accurately measure the service level (SLA) of each critical business service and process, and to quickly recognize and repair problems and potential problems.

Merlin’s Chairman and CEO, David Phelps, stated, “The Centerity platform is extremely well suited for the complex IT environments of today and tomorrow. With Merlin’s investment, we are confident that Centerity can not only accelerate its R&D process, but also leverage the vast sales and distribution channels that Merlin has built over the past 20 years. We see strong synergy for our product offerings, R&D collaboration and sales expansion.”

Centerity’s unique technology offers a single software platform that can collect, combine and analyze any data metric from any IT and IoT layer, and uses advanced visualization tools to present an accurate status for each business service/process. Customers report up to 80 percent cost reduction for NOC operations including redundant monitoring, faster response (MTTR), and real-time business and operational SLA dashboards for the managerial levels. The company serves hundreds of customers worldwide, including enterprise organizations, managed service providers (MSPs) and technology manufacturers (OEMs). Among those clients are Fortune 500 companies, government agencies, hardware manufacturers and more.

“The vision of Centerity is to meet the urgent need for a platform that provides end-to-end, unified performance analytics and BSM, which is reinforced by years of IT experience,” said Roi Keren, President & CEO of Centerity. “Following this investment, we will expand the capabilities of our technology, including machine learning, artificial intelligence (AI), and further automation of BSM analysis. We are delighted that Merlin International is now a partner in this effort and with its support and experience we intend to accelerate our business activities.”

The frequent changes and rapid rollout of new technologies place an extraordinary burden on organizations that must monitor and control the IT/OT environment. Without real-time measurement of critical business and operational services, these changes force many organizations into a constant state of chaos. The traditional response has been to build or buy specialized monitoring systems, often resulting in dozens of different tools. The result has been long delays to urgent problems and an inability to manage and maintain business continuity. Centerity’s unique solution enables IT organizations and managers across all departments to oversee the entire environment via a single-pane-of-glass and to efficiently manage their critical business services.

Centerity Systems Announces Support for Kubernetes

Newton, MA — October 31, 2017 — Centerity Systems Inc., the leading provider of unified IT & IoT performance analytics and business service management solutions, today announced that it supports Kubernetes, the most widely-used, open-source container management system. Centerity’s support for Kubernetes enables enterprises to safeguard the performance and service levels (SLA) of business processes and workflows that utilize application containers, which are often spread across clusters of hosts.

Enterprises that adopt the use of containers for critical business processes need the ability to identify adverse effects on the performance and reliability of those processes. Centerity’s automated topology and dependency mapping recognizes problems in other IT layers/components that may have a cause-effect impact on the container application, either upstream or downstream from the container, which is critical information for improving service levels and CSAT. Compared to traditional IT and Operations Management/ Analytics tools (ITOM/ITOA), Centerity reduces the number of false positives (false alarms) that distract system administrators resulting in more focused efforts where it matters most, at the source of the problem. One customer has estimated that Centerity has reduced MTTR by as much as 80%.

“We have a long history supporting both containers and open source software, which makes Kubernetes support a logical decision”.

Marty Pejko, COO of Centerity Systems said, “We have a long history supporting both containers and open source software, which makes Kubernetes support a logical decision. Given all the advantages of virtualization and containerization, Centerity is pleased to be the only software company to deliver performance analytics that fully support these technologies at the enterprise level. Whether containers are deployed on Converged or Hyperconverged architectures (CI/HCI), in the Cloud, on-prem, hybrid, or in a multi-tenanted environment, Centerity ensures businesses achieve the highest performance and reliability at the lowest possible cost.” Pejko continued, “Centerity’s customers regularly report reduced downtime, faster mean-time-to-repair (MTTR), and fewer no-trouble-found (NTF) and false positive service calls. As a result, these companies are experiencing better service level agreement (SLA) performance, increased quality, and higher customer satisfaction (CSAT) and net promoter scores (NPS).”

Centerity’s solutions help companies identify IT and IoT/IIoT system dependencies that act as performance bottlenecks, and to reduce the variation (increase consistency) in how performance problems are addressed. In this way Centerity, paired with Kubernetes, is a critical component of lean and six-sigma (LSS) initiatives and plays a critical role in ensuring profitability.
