Enterprise Network Monitoring

Transitiv Technologies' network monitoring solution includes the same enterprise level features as expensive proprietary solutions, whilst providing flexibility and agility through the use of Open Source software components and open APIs. Our solution gives customers the power to monitor their rapidly evolving virtualised and container based IT infrastructure, without having to worry about arbitrary restrictions or limitations.

Transitiv Technologies have extensive experience in the design, implementation, customisation and support of enterprise grade network monitoring systems based completely on Open Source software. Our experience has shown that we can deliver a tailored solution to our customers with a total cost of ownership approaching one quarter of that incurred with an "off the shelf" proprietary solution such as HP Openview or Solarwinds Orion. Many commercial vendors license their software based on the number of devices to be monitored; our solutions have no such restrictions - you are free to monitor as many devices as required.

Transitiv have designed, implemented and supported monitoring solutions for large networks containing hardware from a wide variety of vendors including Cisco, Juniper, HP, Dell and F5. We also have extensive experience in monitoring a wide variety of open source and proprietary operating systems and applications, from Windows to Linux, IBM MQ to Oracle, LAMP web application stacks to Java JMX and all sorts of other applications. We are also able to develop custom monitoring plugins to meet your needs.

Our experience has shown that there is no such thing as a "one size fits all" monitoring solution. Thanks to the flexibility and agility inherent in the use of Open Source software, a solution can be tailored to precisely meet the needs of you and your business. We also understand that requirements evolve over time, so our support contracts have been designed with this in mind.
