    SANTA BARBARA, CA--(Marketwired - August 20, 2013) - LogicMonitor, the leading cloud-based IT infrastructure performance monitoring solution, today announced new IT automation capabilities along with key monitoring integrations with Puppet Labs' technologies and Atlassian HipChat to further enhance its platform for use by Software Development and IT Operations teams. The new features and integrations are to be unveiled in conjunction with the firm's sponsorship of PuppetConf 2013.

    LogicMonitor's latest integrations are with Puppet Labs, the leading provider of IT automation software, and Atlassian's HipChat, a private chat service for companies and teams. Integration with Puppet Labs allows users of both products to configure, deploy and manage their performance monitoring directly from Puppet Labs' popular configuration management tool. Integration with Atlassian's HipChat allows LogicMonitor users to instantly send application and infrastructure performance and availability alerts to specified chat rooms.

    Together, the new features and integrations are part of LogicMonitor's ongoing objective to provide complete automation to IT infrastructure performance monitoring.

    A new product feature unveiled this week, dubbed "OpsNotes," allows LogicMonitor users to annotate performance graphs with customized notes, flags, and tags to expedite troubleshooting and otherwise keep track of application deployment changes. The user-defined and searchable OpsNotes can be used for application deployment events such as benchmarking the time of an application release, allowing Development and Ops teams to easily identify events resulting from changes in the deployed application infrastructure.

    "LogicMonitor's OpsNotes is a great addition to an already powerful performance monitoring platform," says Steve Francis, Founder & Chief Product Officer at LogicMonitor. "Instead of wasting time trying to figure out which issue impacted performance of an app release, the specific cause is immediately apparent via an OpsNote in LogicMonitor. We built LogicMonitor to help teams automate the tuning and performance of their infrastructure. The DevOps notion of 'configure, deploy, monitor' fits well with LogicMonitor's DNA. We look forward to showing Puppet Labs users how to use our platform to automate their monitoring."

    NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - August 20, 2013) - Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced that Marine Harvest, the world's largest producer of farmed salmon, has selected Infor M3, Infor Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) and Infor Supply Chain Planning for its global operations. The applications will be deployed in a phased roll out, with the final site expected to go live in April 2014, with the goal of helping Marine Harvest drive growth by improving demand visibility. They will also help Marine Harvest secure optimized pricing for its produce, while accelerating current traceability capabilities.

    News points

    • Marine Harvest is the world's largest producer of farmed salmon with more than 10,000 employees across 23 countries.
    • With production and farming facilities in Norway, Scotland, Ireland, Canada and Chile, Marine Harvest ships approximately 70 percent of its product to retailers with the remaining 30 percent sent for further processing. These destinations span Asia, Europe and the U.S.
    • With facilities across three continents, Marine Harvest has begun a complete business process reengineering project designed to move away from a decentralized, regional structure to a global business template. Through integrating Infor M3 with Infor Supply Chain Planning, Marine Harvest hopes to improve visibility into future demand from 3-6 weeks to up to three years.
    • Combined with Infor Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP) this improvement in visibility will not only help Marine Harvest to better meet demand but also help to protect its revenue by reducing over production and resulting subsequent price reductions to sell excess stock.
    • Infor M3 and Infor Supply Chain Planning will also help reduce the time taken to answer traceability queries.

    Infor Quote
    "As a microvertical, aquaculture is growing at a phenomenal rate," explained Mike Edgett, Director of Industry Marketing, Process Manufacturing, Infor. "It is among the fastest growing animal food production sectors and accounts for more than half of the fishing industry. This is good news because if current consumption patterns continue, we will need another 23 million tons of fish to satisfy demand by 2030."

    "As such, aquaculture demands not only industry-specific functionality but also strong support for growth. Infor M3, supported by other applications such as Infor Supply Chain Planning, delivers not only the support for industry-specific processes but also the scope for scalability, enabling companies such as Marine Harvest to develop competitive advantages that help drive growth."

    SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 20, 2013) - Riverbed Technology (NASDAQ: RVBD), the application performance company, today announced a significant milestone in the integration of the Riverbed Cascade and OPNET product families with the introduction of its single appliance with integrated application aware network performance management (aaNPM) and application performance management (APM). This top-of-the-line solution provides end-to-end performance management from deep dive packet and network analysis through application transactions and end user experience (EUE). With this release, customers now have a single solution to help maximize the performance, availability, and productivity of their critical applications.

    Included in this announcement is Shark module for AppResponse Xpert®, bringing network intelligence to application performance, and the AppResponse Xpert integration with Profiler appliance and Pilot software, bringing application insights into overall performance management. In addition, Riverbed is introducing the new, AppResponse Xpert 6000 appliance for demanding, high-performance application infrastructures. Together, these new capabilities overcome the challenges in delivering consistent and reliable application performance as enterprises virtualize their data centers, consolidate branch offices, and support more mobile end users.

    According to a new Forrester Consulting study commissioned in August 2013 by Riverbed, "Forrester's Ideal Tool Set for Application Performance Management for Better Business Performance," 52 percent of the IT operations surveyed waste more than 20 percent of their operational resources to track and correct problems. On top of the business productivity loss and the damage to the brand, IT productivity also suffers from this state of affairs, as resources are called from their normal work to perform unplanned and unscheduled tasks.

    AppResponse Xpert with the Shark module combines end-user experience, application transaction analysis, and deep network intelligence in a single, unified appliance for streamlined monitoring and troubleshooting of performance issues across application tiers, global networks, and diverse user devices. Giving IT operations teams visibility into areas where issues may occur helps them identify and diagnose situations quickly to minimize application downtime.

    "As a longtime Riverbed Cascade customer, we are excited about the ability to now weave OPNET AppResponse Xpert into Cascade Profiler," said John DeBella, infrastructure architect at Teradyne, Inc. "Teradyne customers and employees depend on our network and applications to quickly solve some of the toughest testing challenges in the electronics industry today -- our customers can't afford delayed or sluggish network and application performance. With the combination of AppResponse Xpert and Shark module, we're adding end-user experience and transaction monitoring to the deep network capabilities we're used to with Cascade Shark. A single appliance that provides such broad capabilities for application performance management is a game changer for us."

    "The worlds of APM and NPM must come together if IT organizations are going to be successful in making the transition to application-centric operations," said Jim Frey, vice president at Enterprise Management Associates. "With this announcement, Riverbed shows it is on track following the OPNET acquisition to deliver solid, integrated products that make APM/NPM convergence a reality."

    Cascade Shark Module for OPNET AppResponse Xpert
    In addition to the existing stand alone Cascade Shark solution, the optional Cascade Shark module for AppResponse Xpert adds the rich network intelligence Cascade Shark provides to supplement the existing end-user experience monitoring and transaction analysis provided by AppResponse Xpert. Adding the Cascade Shark module creates a single, unified appliance that combines end-user experience, application transaction analysis, and deep network intelligence and eliminates the need to deploy multiple appliances in the same location. In addition, the Cascade Shark module accelerates network troubleshooting with streamlined workflows and deeper network insight.

    OPNET AppResponse Xpert Integration with Cascade Profiler and Cascade Pilot
    With this announcement, AppResponse Xpert can send data to Cascade Profiler. This data, combined with data received from Cascade Gateways, Cascade Shark appliances and virtual software, and Riverbed Steelhead® appliances, provides end-to-end visibility and enables global monitoring and troubleshooting. This now enables the Cascade Profiler's enterprise-wide performance management interface and workflow to integrate directly into and with AppResponse Xpert.

    Additionally, Cascade Pilot software is unified and integrated with AppResponse Xpert and AppTransaction Xpert to streamline troubleshooting and help the flow of data between the two products. Packet analysis software, Cascade Pilot enables users to quickly analyze multi-terabyte packet recordings on remote AppResponse Xpert appliances (in addition to Cascade Shark appliances and virtual software, and Riverbed Steelhead products) without transferring large packet capture files across the network. It also streamlines the process of opening large packet files in AppTransaction Xpert.

    OPNET AppResponse Xpert 6000 Appliance
    The AppResponse Xpert 6000 appliance provides the storage and high-speed analysis needed to keep up with higher speed networks and to retain packet data longer. The AppResponse Xpert 6000 is an appliance that processes and writes to disk at up to 2x10Gbps line rates and provides 48TB of packet storage, expandable to 264TB.

    More than 22,000 organizations worldwide depend on Riverbed to understand, optimize and consolidate their IT infrastructure, through solutions that overcome performance issues caused by distance, distributed computing, and ever increasing amounts of data. As IT organizations embark on strategic initiatives to virtualize, consolidate and migrate workloads into cloud environments, users are moved farther from their data. Slow applications, slow file transfers and inefficient websites can negatively impact the performance and success of these initiatives. Riverbed transforms IT performance by providing solutions spanning WAN optimization, storage delivery, application-aware network performance management, application performance management, application delivery controllers, web content optimization (WCO), and cloud data protection. By providing the broadest portfolio of performance solutions that deliver anywhere, any-application optimization, Riverbed enables organizations to increase productivity and efficiency, while enhancing business resilience and controlling costs.

As part of the expansion, xAd is partnering with India-based mobile ad company Audianz to help extend its platform and location targeting capabilities, including geo-precision and geo-conquesting, to brands and agencies in India.

    PANAMA CITY, FL--(Marketwired - August 20, 2013) - iSirona, a provider of simplified solutions for medical device integration, today announced it has been named to the Inc. 500 list of fastest-growing private companies in America. This is the second year in a row iSirona has earned a spot on the magazine's elite list.

    Compiled by Inc. magazine, the 2013 Inc. 500 rankings are based on a company's percentage of revenue growth from 2009 through 2012. Overall, iSirona ranked number 201 on the list, with a three-year revenue growth of 2,092 percent. Additionally, the company was named the 14th fastest-growing private company in the healthcare category.

    "It's an incredible honor to be named to America's most prestigious entrepreneurial list for two years running," says iSirona CEO Dave Dyell. "Our continued and explosive growth can be attributed to our unique, software-based approach to medical device integration -- and to the growing number of hospitals and health systems that recognize the value our solution brings to the healthcare industry."

    Because private companies are not required by law to disclose their financial information, reporting on private companies is more difficult than public companies. The Inc. 500 list is important because it provides the most comprehensive look at the private companies driving the U.S. economy.

    About iSirona
    iSirona helps clinicians make more informed decisions about patients by providing an easy to use approach to medical device integration. Using iSirona's software solution, hospitals can connect virtually any medical device to their CIS, providing clinicians with faster access to more accurate patient information. iSirona was ranked "One of America's Most Promising Companies" in 2013 by Forbes magazine, as the fifth fastest-growing private company in U.S. healthcare in 2012 by Inc. magazine, and as the #1 device integration provider for both 2011 and 2012 in the Best in KLAS awards.

    SUNNYVALE, CA--(Marketwired - August 20, 2013) - Juniper Networks (NYSE: JNPR), the industry leader in network innovation, today announced that Columbus Networks, a leading undersea fiber optic network provider, has upgraded its network core with the Juniper Networks® T4000 Core Routers. Enhancing its existing Juniper Networks T1600 core routing infrastructure, the T4000 provides the scalability and flexibility necessary to meet rapidly expanding bandwidth requirements for hosted services and multimedia applications, including mobile, video, cloud and research. The upgrade simultaneously extends the investment protection of the T Series platform.

    Columbus Networks, with its joint venture partner CWC Wholesale Solutions, operates the largest subsea multi-ring fiber-optic network across the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico and United States, with more than 26,000 miles of subsea fiber. This platform allows for superior reliability and scalability of international wholesale capacity bandwidth services, corporate data applications, and data center hosting to telecommunications companies and Internet service providers (ISPs) across 42 countries. Staying ahead of the performance curve, Columbus Networks needed a disruption-free upgrade path for its core routing infrastructure to deliver massive performance gains, advanced routing functionality and predictive control over ongoing operational costs.

    News Highlights

    • Improving Core Network Performance and Density - A true multiservice core router, the T4000 system delivers a reliable, high-performance and flexible architecture to carry a wide breadth of services over a common IP/MPLS infrastructure. With nearly four terabits of line rate throughput in a half-rack chassis, the T4000 allows Columbus Networks to double the capacity in its core network to aid the rapid increase in Internet traffic thanks to over-the-top video and cloud-based services, which are projected to triple in four years. At 240 Gbps/slot, the T4000 is optimized for transport and service provider backbone networks.

    • Disruption Free Migration Path - The T4000 routers continue Juniper Networks' history of delivering high performance and network simplicity by enabling Columbus Networks to take its existing T1600 and upgrade to the T4000 with zero downtime and no service disruption. This hitless in-service software and hardware upgrade allows Columbus Networks to maintain business continuity for its customers while also removing the complexity from the upgrade process.

    • Extending Investment Protection and Scalability - Juniper's core solutions deliver exceptional investment protection with line cards that are compatible between all T Series routers. This minimizes upgrade costs for Columbus Networks and delivers a customizable pay-as-you-grow model. Columbus Networks can scale a single T4000 from a four Tbps chassis to a multichassis configuration with the TX Matrix Plus, which supports up to 16 Tbps. This provides the additional capacity necessary to stay ahead of the mobile bandwidth growth curve.

    Supporting Quotes

    • "Our priority is to exceed customer expectations as our network continues to experience continuous growth. As we evolve the Columbus IP network and realize the capabilities of the T4000, Juniper has been a critical technology partner enabling us to reduce our operational expenditures while also increasing our performance, reliability and efficiency."
      - Paolo Autore, engineering manager, Columbus Networks

    • "Now in its second year of production, the T4000 routers deliver the performance that service providers need to ensure network scalability, launch new services and enhance performance. The T4000 provides Columbus Networks with unmatched investment protection and will free up more time for it to continue expanding its business."
      - Paul Obsitnik, vice president, product marketing, Platform Systems Division, Juniper Networks

Since opening our federal practice in January of this year, this win solidifies our commitment to the federal market and will provide a foundation to expand our presence in the Washington DC area."

    Natoma Technologies will provide comprehensive oversight and support for all aspects of ePM with assistance from Runding Corporation, a technology consulting firm focused on integrating and implementing complex design and construction management solutions, and an expert in Meridian Proliance Software, the COTS foundation ePM is built on.
