Woodland Hills, CA, United States, 2010/11/05 - Metron-Athene is pleased to announce its participation in the upcoming Gartner 29th Annual Data Center Conference, taking place December 6 - 9 at Caesars Palace Las Vegas.
Metron-Athene has a number of on-site activities at this summit, including a demonstration of its Athene enterprise-wide Cloud, Virtual and Physical Capacity Management solution at the Solution Provider Showcase.
Clients will also be in attendance at the Metron-Athene booth in the Solution Provider Showcase so you can find out what the ‘real deal’ is with Athene Capacity Management software and services.
A number of Metron-Athene's senior company executives will be available for pre-arranged Face to Face Sponsor Meetings, to discuss Metron, its strategy and how it helps Companies to meet their goals for initiatives such as Cloud Computing, virtualization and green IT.
Andrew Smith, Chief Sales and Marketing Officer of Metron-Athene commented ‘We are pleased to be participating in the Gartner Conference. As a leading capacity management specialist for over 25 years we are in agreement with all leading Analysts in the industry that effective Capacity Management is a process whose time has come. The complexity and uncertainties that are coming with Cloud, the need to minimize costs now but still migrate to an environment that will support your business in the upturn, means that effective capacity management of current resources and capacity planning of future needs will be critical. Metron’s unique combination of experience, services and software makes us the best partner to maximize a Company’s return on investment in virtualization, smooth their transition to the Cloud and optimize their Green IT savings.’
Earlier this year Metron-Athene announced a partnership with Correlsense, the market leader in Business Transaction Management. The combination of Correlsense SharePath and Metron Athene provides a complete Capacity Management solution that allows organizations to understand the performance of both their core system and critical services. By combining business forecast information with infrastructure performance metrics IT organizations can predict whether they have sufficient capacity to meet the needs of the business at both the component and service levels.
Andrew Smith, for Metron-Athene continued: ‘Combining Sharepath’s business transaction management views of complex applications spanning multiple processing points with Athene’s cross-platform modeling capabilities takes capacity planning from a resource level in ITIL terms to a service-wide view. Users can now plan their future infrastructure requirements from a business rather than purely technical perspective.’
The focus of the conference this year is on how to fund and support your 2011 new business initiatives with savvy cost optimization strategies and Capacity Management is a hot topic in helping you achieve this.
