Reston, Virginia – May 8, 2013 – Today ScienceLogic announced it has been chosen as a Best of Interop winner for the Management & Monitoring award category, recognizing ScienceLogic’s innovation and technological advancements in IT infrastructure management for public, private, and hybrid clouds.
“The entire company is overjoyed that ScienceLogic was selected for this prestigious Best of Interop award,” said Dave Link, CEO of ScienceLogic. “This year has already brought significant accolades including being named ‘Best Network Monitoring System on Earth’ by the InfoWorld Test Center. Winning Best of Interop provides independent third party validation that our Smart IT software is highly differentiated in the marketplace. Our intelligent design is meeting the challenges of modern IT when it comes to data center and hybrid cloud management. As the Interop judges concluded, ScienceLogic is pretty much the network/virtualization/cloud management equivalent of Batman’s amazing utility belt, offering practically any customizable tool you need when you need it.”
ScienceLogic is showcasing the latest enhancements for its Smart IT software at Interop Las Vegas. The event runs through Thursday, May 9th allowing attendees to visit booth #2133 and the InteropNet Network Operations Center to see ScienceLogic in action. In addition to being selected as a Best of Interop winner for the second time, ScienceLogic was also selected to manage the InteropNet NOC for the fifth time. InteropNet is the largest temporary network in the world and requires ScienceLogic, the most advanced, comprehensive, multivendor management platform, to operate flawlessly for the duration of the Interop event in order to deliver the demanding service levels the show and its participants require.
The Best of Interop Judging Committee, comprised of 16 award-winning IT editors and analysts, reviewed nearly 150 entries and selected winners based on the products with a significant technical impact with the most potential of advancing the business technology market.
“The Best of Interop Awards showcases IT vendors pushing the boundaries of technology,” said Andrew Conry-Murray, editor of Network Computing. “ScienceLogic and each category winner demonstrates a commitment to innovation and has a compelling offering deserving of recognition.”

ScienceLogic begins with agentless auto-discovery that’s capable of rapidly assimilating a huge array of vendor APIs, which allows it to build a detailed and extremely customizable map of your network environment. From there, an administrator can get anything from a 100,000 ft view to the granularity necessary to drill down to specific devices within the infrastructure.
What’s even more interesting is ScienceLogic’s ability to build reports and visualizations based on a wide variety of contexts – from small, local-office performance monitoring to global-scale carrier issues. It provides a large library of commonly-needed templates, as well as ability to craft custom HTML5 dashboards suitable for framing using your favorite tablet or smart-phone. But the big kicker that ScienceLogic introduced this year for version 7.3 is the ability to visualize your resources within the cloud.
One of the key weaknesses of the cloud today is the lack of a common API, something that would dramatically simplify the integration of cloud services and provide the degree of freedom of choice that cloud advocates initially promised.
Well, just like with our friends in the hardware community, it seems that standardizing APIs for the cloud is still like herding cats, which leaves a vacuum for a company like ScienceLogic to fill. And fill it they do, with new capabilities that now extend to public services like AWS; as well as to hybrid and private cloud applications. It also provides support for converged compute stacks like Cisco UCS, VCE Vblock, and Flexpod; not to mention granular visibility all the way down to the hypervisor and VM level for virtualized workloads. ScienceLogic is pretty much the network administrator’s equivalent of Batman’s amazing utility belt, offering practically any customizable tool you need when you need it. You can see ScienceLogic in operation for yourself in the InteropNet NOC on the expo floor at Interop Las Vegas. – Steven Hill
