Avada Software: The One-Stop-Solution for Holistic Middleware Management

Most middleware management solutions available in the market entail complicated deployments depending on the nuances of the middleware environment. Cloud environments further exacerbate the challenges and bring forth complications around visibility, solution ownership, and compliance. Not to mention public clouds oftentimes do not entertain running proprietary codes within their environment. Rarely do middleware management solutions encompass every aspect of middleware management. For instance, there are monitors out there that don't do administration and vice versa, and few provide secure visibility and persona/permission-based access into the middleware environment and operations.

This is where Avada Software differs.

Avada Software offers a holistic platform/ OS-agnostic, cloud-native, single-interface middleware management portal, Infrared360®, which scales thousands of endpoints, and offers complete administration, monitoring, testing, auditing, and statistical reporting for enterprise middleware environments. "Avada Software materialized 16 years ago from its founders' 'frustrations' from the limitations of middleware management products that were available in the market. We realized there were other companies facing similar challenges, and this led us to develop Infrared360®, a cost-effective solution that requires no deployment, and can be up and running within an hour," says Pete D'Agosta, Co- Founder and Chief Product Manager, Avada Software.

Infrared360® does real-time monitoring of middleware environments, as opposed to other solutions that merely write to logs and then monitor the logs. This enables the solution to proactively alert users regarding impending issues and eliminates the issue of delayed alerts. Powered by True Real- Time™ monitoring, the solution allows IT teams to proactively monitor and manage enterprise messaging applications (IBM MQ, IBM IIB/ACE, Apache Kafka, and AMQ), application servers like (Websphere, Tomcat-Server, and JBoss), appliances (MQ Appliance, DataPower), and web services (REST, URL, and SOAP). It provides end-to-end visibility and full administration of your environment no matter where it’s deployed – containers, cloud, hybrid, multi-cloud, anywhere.

The solution is also powered by the novel Trusted-Spaces™ feature that enables limited, role-based access to data, secure middleware management, and, more-importantly, user self-service and delegated administration.
"Unlike our competitors, we enable customers to look at information differently. Instead of the old fishbowl way of looking into data and managing operations, we enable different business units to select what they want to see and set the permissions they want to give their users within an environment. This saves thousands of hours for middleware and operations teams when it comes to researching incident causation.” Plus, Trusted Spaces™ aligns with other native security features, such as two-factor authentication, agentless design, complete user audit trails, and security certificate management for IBM MQ, to allow clients fully secure transactional middleware operations.

What's more, the company's customer onboarding model also works as smoothly as the solution. The procedure begins with the company's onboarding team reviewing the client's IT environment and understanding their objectives. They chalk out a plan and, upon mutual agreement, register the client to the customer portal. The portal allows the customer to download the solution and install it in minutes. After successful installation, the company conducts training sessions to familiarize the client Admins and Users with the solution, especially with the latest Trusted-Spaces™ technology.

To date, Avada Software's Infrared360® has remained a premier, simple alternative to the otherwise complex middleware management systems available in the market. "With Infrared360®, refining businesses in terms of time, cost of ownership, and productivity is much easier," adds D'Agosta. Furthermore, the solution is capable of real-time monitoring of the microservices environments.


Most customers consider Avada Software the gold standard for monitoring their environments

For the road ahead, Avada Software is focused on steadily expanding its customer base and becoming the ultimate go-to partner for middleware management and monitoring. "Most customers consider Avada Software the gold standard for monitoring their environments. In view of that, we will continue to scale capabilities as more and more endpoints make their way to the cloud. We always take our dialogues with customers seriously and based on their feedback, we add functions to the product at a deep technical level to make it more efficient than it already is," concludes D'Agosta.
