Company Achieves Over 100% Bookings Growth as Cloud Adoption Drives Need for Network Intelligence SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 28, 2017) - ThousandEyes, the Network Intelligence company that delivers visibility into every network, today shared results that reveal strong growth in bookings in both domestic and international markets, and continued expansion of product capabilities, locations and executive team leadership. Enterprises' increasing reliance on the Internet as a primary foundation of business fueled 100% year-over-year growth in bookings in both domestic and international markets and drove the addition of marquee customers across financial services, retail and leading technology companies. As cloud adoption reaches new heights, the Internet has become the new corporate backbone, rendering traditional network monitoring approaches increasingly ineffective. Traditional monitoring approaches rely on traffic capture, and provide a narrow view of the network, highlighting problems when it's too late. ThousandEyes enables organizations to gain an immediate understanding of experience from every user to every cloud application as well as providing critical insights for strategically planning and migrating services to the cloud over time. "With the surge in cloud adoption, we've seen a rapid growth in enterprises turning to ThousandEyes to categorically understand experience from every user to every application," said Mohit Lad, ThousandEyes CEO and co-founder. "ThousandEyes has innovated an approach based on an unmatched distribution of smart agents across the Internet, enterprise, all the way to the end user. ThousandEyes gathers and analyzes the massive volumes of 'Network Intelligence' data from these vantage points, enabling organizations to solve even the most obscure performance problems in minutes. By using ThousandEyes in the planning and testing phases of cloud adoption, customers can also strategically identify and fix underlying problems before production deployment of the application -- something not possible before." Recent Gartner reports have noted the adoption of cloud and SaaS services crossing an inflection point with their role in the daily operations of businesses. One report predicts that "By 2021, more than half of global enterprises already using cloud today will adopt an all-in cloud strategy" (Gartner Inc., Predicts 2017: Cloud Computing Enters Its Second Decade, David Mitchell Smith, et al., December 2, 2016). ThousandEyes recorded over 100% year-over-year bookings growth in both domestic and international markets, adding 18 Fortune 500 customers, and now counts five of the top five SaaS companies and four of the top six US Banks as customers. This includes a doubling of customers in the technology, financial services and media and gaming verticals as well as continued expansion into the healthcare and manufacturing verticals. Notable customers include 1-800-Contacts, Qualys, Collective Health, Comcast Corp., TBWA Worldwide, Wageworks, Luminex, DHI Group Inc., Craigslist, Creative Artists Agency, Conde Nast Publications Inc., Quantcast, Pitney Bowes, Cloudflare, Hi-Rez Studios, Shutterfly, Ellie Mae, and lululemon. In order to meet the growing demand for Network Intelligence and meet the needs of an expanding base of customers, ThousandEyes has expanded business operations, including a new sales office in Austin, TX, a second engineering office in London, as well as continuing to double the team in the San Francisco headquarters. ThousandEyes, also made several notable executive appointments to help lead teams and areas that are strategic for long term growth. These executives include Victoria Abeling, director of corporate sales, Prabha Krishna, vice president of people operations, and Ashwin Kedia, vice president of business development. ThousandEyes held ThousandEyes Connect events in San Francisco and New York City, featuring presentations from leading companies, such as AIM Speciality Health, Cisco, Hi-Rez Studios, Microsoft, Nasdaq, Quantcast, RichRelevance, ServiceNow, Unilever, Verisign and Zendesk. ThousandEyes Connect is a live event where network engineers and web performance practitioners share their experiences tackling tough performance challenges. "The launch of Endpoint Agent, easier deployments of Enterprise Agents, and the continued expansion of our Cloud Agent locations has enabled us to build a truly unique global dataset that consolidates performance measurements and metadata from thousands of distinct vantage points from all across the Internet, into the enterprise, and to the endpoint," said Ricardo Oliveira, ThousandEyes CTO and co-founder. "This enables us to innovate in really profound and interesting ways, such as delivering Internet Outage Detection as part of our vision for Collective Intelligence. The ability to provide actionable insights into complex Internet-centric networks has made ThousandEyes a necessary ingredient for the modern enterprise, and we look forward to continuing to deliver on our vision for Network Intelligence." Industry Recognition In the past year, ThousandEyes earned recognition and accolades from industry press and analyst firms. A Gartner report mentioned ThousandEyes as a representative vendor for Collective Intelligence Benchmarking (Gartner Inc., Innovation Insight for Collective Intelligence Benchmarking, Vivek Bhalla and Will Cappelli, September 26, 2016). Analyst firm IDC included ThousandEyes as an "IDC Innovator for Cloud-Managed Network Monitoring" within the enterprise network management market. CRN included ThousandEyes on its 2016 list of top "Emerging Vendors" in July. And in a December article, Business Insider counted ThousandEyes as one of "51 enterprise startups to bet your career on in 2017." ThousandEyes is a Network Intelligence platform that delivers visibility into every network an organization relies on, enabling them to optimize and improve application delivery, end-user experience and ongoing infrastructure investments. Leading companies such as Equinix, ServiceNow and Twitter, as well as eBay and other members of the Fortune 500, use ThousandEyes to improve performance and availability of their business-critical applications. ThousandEyes is backed by Sequoia Capital, Sutter Hill Ventures, Tenaya Capital and GV (formerly Google Ventures), and has headquarters in San Francisco, CA.

IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering | Year: 2013

Research into developing effective computer aided techniques for planning software projects is important and challenging for software engineering. Different from projects in other fields, software projects are people-intensive activities and their related resources are mainly human resources. Thus, an adequate model for software project planning has to deal with not only the problem of project task scheduling but also the problem of human resource allocation. But as both of these two problems are difficult, existing models either suffer from a very large search space or have to restrict the flexibility of human resource allocation to simplify the model. To develop a flexible and effective model for software project planning, this paper develops a novel approach with an event-based scheduler (EBS) and an ant colony optimization (ACO) algorithm. The proposed approach represents a plan by a task list and a planned employee allocation matrix. In this way, both the issues of task scheduling and employee allocation can be taken into account. In the EBS, the beginning time of the project, the time when resources are released from finished tasks, and the time when employees join or leave the project are regarded as events. The basic idea of the EBS is to adjust the allocation of employees at events and keep the allocation unchanged at nonevents. With this strategy, the proposed method enables the modeling of resource conflict and task preemption and preserves the flexibility in human resource allocation. To solve the planning problem, an ACO algorithm is further designed. Experimental results on 83 instances demonstrate that the proposed method is very promising. © 2013 IEEE.

In this paper we survey computational models for Grid scheduling problems and their resolution using heuristic and meta-heuristic approaches. Scheduling problems are at the heart of any Grid-like computational system. Different types of scheduling based on different criteria, such as static versus dynamic environment, multi-objectivity, adaptivity, etc., are identified. Then, heuristic and meta-heuristic methods for scheduling in Grids are presented. The paper reveals the complexity of the scheduling problem in Computational Grids when compared to scheduling in classical parallel and distributed systems and shows the usefulness of heuristic and meta-heuristic approaches for the design of efficient Grid schedulers. We also discuss on requirements for a modular Grid scheduling and its integration with Grid architecture. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Infoblox Inc. (NYSE:BLOX), the network control company that provides Actionable Network Intelligence, today announced the latest release of its software (NIOS 8.0) for DNS, DHCP and IP Address Management (DDI) to automatically scale according to the needs of the network. NIOS 8.0 provides organizations with “elastic scaling” capability – a way to add or reduce DDI capacity on-demand for a network. Infoblox is also adding new appliances to its product line that offer more than 50 percent performance improvements over the current appliances to help customers seamlessly expand their networks - without impacting their DNS and DHCP performance. Given that business environments are dynamic and fast-paced, enterprises need the agility to transform their networks around new digital business models. This makes the ability to dynamically scale IT services an imperative. Yet the reality is that many legacy network solutions fail to provide the flexibility and visibility needed by organizations to meet their constantly evolving business needs. With Infoblox NIOS 8.0 software, enterprises can utilize the increased performance with flexible scaling across diverse and hybrid cloud infrastructures to seamlessly expand their network and run additional security services without compromising on the control and security of their network.  Additionally, new subscription pricing models announced today help provide the flexibility required by customers to choose the consumption model that best suits their business needs. “The addition of elastic scaling and high performance appliances is a major milestone as it marks the first time any DDI vendor has provided this capability combined in a multi-cloud, multi-platform solution,” said Scott Fulton, executive vice president of products at Infoblox. “With today’s launch, we can provide our customers with the flexibility they need to readily integrate with other systems and improve performance and automation across today’s hybrid environments. These capabilities combined with license mobility and subscription-based pricing options help enable our customers to adjust to ever-changing business needs that require a robust underlying next-generation network.” In addition to offering flexible scale and performance, Infoblox has also introduced substantial enhancements to its DNS Traffic Control solution to improve employee productivity and application response times by leveraging intelligent load balancing capabilities that automatically direct application traffic to the optimal server and/or data center. “The ability to simplify our DNS load balancing operations with Infoblox DNS Traffic Control was a big factor in our choice of vendor,” said Jason Seager, network solutions manager, The Hershey Company. “Infoblox is the only DDI vendor we've seen that integrates DNS and GSLB functions making it simple to manage with little operational overhead.” Pricing and Availability Infoblox NIOS 8.0 software and the new Infoblox appliances are available now worldwide. The new Infoblox appliances can be added to the existing Infoblox GridsTM or used to deploy a new Infoblox GridsTM. Infoblox customers can upgrade their Infoblox GridsTM to the new NIOS 8.0 software.
