Xangati and Phoenix Datacom Partner to Deliver Infrastructure Performance Management (IPM) Solutions in the UK and Ireland
As a result of partnership,Travis Perkins plc selects and implements Xangati’s award-winning solution

LONDON – September 22, 2010 – Xangati, the emerging leader in infrastructure performance management, today announced a reseller agreement with Phoenix Datacom, a leading supplier of network performance and security products and services, to sell and support its solutions in the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland. The joint collaboration – showcased publicly for the first time at the IT infrastructure conference 360°IT – both extends Xangati’s international partner base and enables Phoenix Datacom to provide its customers with an award-winning suite of both physical and virtual infrastructure management tools as they begin to deploy hybrid systems.

In addition, Travis Perkins plc – one of the largest retail suppliers to the UK’s building and construction industry – has become one of the first major customers to select and implement the Xangati solution as a result of the partnership.

“With more than 25 years of experience providing quality integration and support services for complex data networks in the UK and Ireland, Phoenix Datacom offers the highest degree of regional knowledge – combined with technology expertise – needed to deliver Xangati’s IPM solution in this market,” said Greg Dumas, Director of International Operations for Xangati. “We are pleased to bring Phoenix Datacom on board as a Xangati channel partner and to work together to expand and accelerate companies’ physical and virtual infrastructure initiatives worldwide.”

“’We are thrilled to have the guiding hand of an established industry leader to work with us as our customers require more robust infrastructure management solutions, as well as turn to virtualisation more and more for server consolidation and efficient network provisioning,” said Tony Smith, Marketing Manager for Phoenix Datacom. “Xangati’s ability to provide live, to-the-second streaming views into all network devices – including both the physical and virtual – gives our customers the ability to quickly and easily identify and resolve problem areas and carry on with their primary business.”

Xangati is the only infrastructure performance management (IPM) solution that provides performance insights across both the physical and virtual infrastructure in one pane of glass – giving IT administrators enhanced visibility that goes far beyond simple server metrics.

Travis Perkins plc Chooses Xangati Solution
Supplying more than 100,000 product lines to trade professionals and self builders, Travis Perkins plc is a leading company in the British Builders Merchanting and Home Improvement market. Travis Perkins plc has deployed Xangati’s IPM solution in a network of approximately 17,000 devices, across more than 1,250 national branches.

Although Travis Perkins plc evaluated other products for network visibility, the Xangati solution’s superior monitoring capabilities and visibility led to its purchase decision. According to Gary Phillips, Communications Manager for Travis Perkins plc, no other system they evaluated provided the features and benefits that the Xangati solution gave them.

“In order to manage any network, it is important to have a clear view of devices, applications and interfaces across the whole network in order to facilitate efficient operation of the network,” said Gary Phillips, Communications Manager for Travis Perkins plc. “Xangati provides that visibility, along with a comfort factor for the network support team. Knowing they now have a tool that is providing them with full visibility of network activity – with a recorded rollback capability and long term reporting – is giving the network support team more visibility than they had before.”

According to Phillips, since being deployed only last month, Xangati’s solution has already enabled Travis Perkins plc to avert two potentially major network problems. The first was an anti-virus server that was doing a major update to all devices during business hours, creating a network “slowdown.” The second issue was a new IP camera installation that was tying up the networking by sending large volumes of video content – again during business hours. Xangati’s solution allowed both performance issues to be immediately identified and stopped within minutes.
