Had a great trip to Montreal to meet with the Development and R&D people for Coradiant. This product has been great for us, there is some learning curve to using the product effectively, but there is no shortage of uses for their excellent products. They are always thinking ahead, and we are trying more and more to leverage their technology for monitoring, troubleshooting, and analytics. I met with some of the product folks, support people, and development leads. Really good talent making great tools. Keep up the good work.
Opsware has been very helpful to us with the NAS product. Its been doing everything we need and then some. The reporting is excellent as well. We are going to present the solution soon to the rest of network engineering and architecture.
Alterpoint was supposed to start over a week ago, but they had to push it off due to concerns they were having with the deal. I think their product is excellent, and I'd like to get it in the hands of the folks who use these tools day to day and get an honest opinion of it.
Alterpoint has a great reputation, and I'm looking forward to evaluating the solution.
