Vunetrix v-Cloud Network Monitoring

Author: Ethan Ace, Published on Jul 09, 2012

Network monitoring systems have seen limited adoption in security, generally priced within reach of only large-scale enterprise deployments. Additionally, VMSs now provide many of the features found in these higher-end systems, making dedicated monitoring software unnecessary. Now, software provider Vunetrix has announced a hosted version of their monitoring platform, called v-Cloud which aims to make network more affordable for smaller systems. In this note, we overview this offering, its pricing structure and how it competes against VMS alerting functions and Vunetrix's current offering.
