Latest Update of Paessler AG’s Award-Winning, Easy-to-Use Solution Delivers Faster Performance, Greater Efficiency in Deployment and Maintenance

Los Angeles, CA and Nuremberg, Germany (February 1st, 2011)- Paessler AG, the innovative network monitoring solutions specialist, today announced the launch of PRTG v8.2, the latest version of its award-winning network monitoring solution, now with optimized performance to speed network monitoring tasks, particularly in larger installations.

PRTG v8.2 offers a new turbo-charged database system for access to log files, ToDo lists and Toplists up to 300 times faster than previous versions. Where other monitoring solutions use off-the-shelf databases to store data, the well-proven PRTG database format is specifically designed by Paessler for storage of network monitoring data and now used throughout all databases to make network monitoring and data analysis faster and easier for administrators.

"PRTG has earned numerous industry accolades for combining robust functionality with an easy-to-use and reliable system that eliminates the guesswork and uncertainty of most other solutions," said Paessler U.S. General Manager Ken Sanofsky. "This latest release delivers even greater efficiency that can free up precious IT admin staff time, allowing them to focus on tasks that drive greater business value to the organization."

The improved performance in PRTG v8.2 is enhanced with upgraded auto-discovery, now including template support for almost all sensor types, with predefined sensor settings to speed discovery and setup of new devices in the monitored environment. The addition of three new sensor types enables monitoring of DHCP servers, VMware ESX(i) discs via SSH and traffic flow over jFlow-capable devices. With the addition of jFlow, together with PRTG's existing NetFlow and sFlow sensors, the software is now able to monitor bandwidth usage on most common Juniper, Cisco and HP hardware. Ping and port sensors have also been optimized to better meet customer needs.

Paessler's flagship PRTG Network Monitor has been widely recognized by IT trade publications and experts around the world for its ease of use, flexibility and scalability, as well as its affordably priced all-inclusive feature set. PRTG offers the broadest functionality in a single license of any other product on the market with all-in-one pricing and no surprise add-ons.
