ManageEngine Shatters Price/Performance Barriers in Data Center and Private Cloud Monitoring
OpManager monitors 1 Million Interfaces for Less than $1 Million with Industry’s Most Cost-Efficiently Scalable Network Management Platform

Dubai, UAE, June 23, 2013 — ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the next version of OpManager, its network performance management and data center monitoring software. Available today in beta, the new OpManager introduces the industry’s most cost-efficiently scalable network management platform to monitor one million interfaces from a single standalone server — for less than $1 million. The move shatters long-standing price/performance barriers in data center and private cloud monitoring, delivering carrier-grade scalability at commodity prices.
IT organizations in large enterprises and data centers face a tough decision when it comes to network monitoring. They can spend millions of dollars on a solution that scales to handle up to one million interfaces in a single management console. Meanwhile, IT teams that can’t afford to spend millions on network monitoring can opt for less expensive solutions that don’t scale quite as elegantly. To monitor one million interfaces, these teams are stuck with multiple management consoles and countless polling engines. One way or another, IT teams pay a big price for large-scale network monitoring.
“The new OpManager is breaking new ground in network monitoring,” said Dev Anand, director of product management at ManageEngine. “No other vendor is offering truly affordable, carrier-grade scalability. The Big 4 can scale with a single console, but users pay a huge premium for that privilege. Every other vendor just comes up short — except for us. With OpManager, we’re bringing network management scalability to the masses.”
OpManager: Cost Effective, Carrier Grade
ManageEngine designed OpManager to make life easier for enterprise and data center admins. With just one advanced scalability engine, the new OpManager can support one million interfaces to let admins expand their monitoring dynamically to suit their proliferating IT. ManageEngine has further streamlined the OpManager solution by minimizing the learning curve and shrinking deployment time to minutes — without assistance.
Anand said, “We listened to our customers closely and studied the market carefully in developing the new OpManager. We didn’t want to introduce the implementation, training costs, and complexities that accompany the Big 4 solutions. And we didn’t want to overwhelm admins with the additional hardware, software and maintenance burden that are typically found in less expensive solutions. OpManager blends scalability and affordability to hit the network monitoring sweet spot.”
