Anyone who is tasked with assuring quality application delivery across today’s globally distributed, virtualized network and computing infrastructures will tell you that it’s difficult to understand which of the many interconnected pieces is to blame when applications degrade.  It’s often a needle-in-the-haystack problem.  On December 9, 2008, that problem may have gotten a little easier to tackle with ExtraHop Network’s introduction of the ExtraHop Application Delivery Assurance System.  The new company is taking new aim on leveraging the deep and rich information available by monitoring network packets and focusing on what stories that data can tell across the delivery stack but especially within the application layer, where much of the action takes place.  Founded by technologists who blazed a similar trail in application-layer network switching, the ExtraHop solution is appliance-based and requires virtually no configuration, so it can be deployed easily and can quickly bridge the operational information and knowledge gap that commonly exists between network and applications operations teams.
