Paessler, the network monitoring software company, will soon release PRTG 9.2 -- the newest version of its flagship monitoring solution for SMBs and enterprise businesses. The upgrade includes a Mobile Web GUI, speedier web page loading and support for VMware vSphere 5. The new version of Paessler's PRTG monitoring solution is set to debut at Cisco Live London 2012 (Jan. 30 - Feb. 3). And when it does, Paessler says it will include over 400 improvements.

Paessler said the biggest improvement involves VMware vSphere 5 support because it addresses ESX 5, Virtual Center 5 and lets users see virtual machines (VMs) located inside of vApps. Plus, mobile browser support is enhanced. According to Paessler Founder and CEO Dirk Paessler, more and more of the company's customers are already upgrading to vSphere 5 even before Paessler releases support for it.

"They [customers] want the ability to include these systems in their monitoring to ensure system operability," Paessler said. "PRTG simply grows with their demands."

On the mobile device side, the new version of PRTG supports the following mobile platforms:
  • iOS 3.2
  • Android 2.1/Honeycomb,
  • BlackBerry 6
  • Windows Phone 7
  •  WebOS 1.4
  • Meego
  • Kindle 3
  •  Firefox Mobile
  • Opera Mobile 11
Over the next two weeks or so, we'll be interested to hear the feedback PRTG gets from Cisco Live London attendees.

It seems like Paessler has been closely monitoring the mobile device usage trend of its customers and then responding accordingly. In December 2011, the company released its iPRTG 3.0 mobile network monitoring application for all iOS devices with editing, mapping and email capabilities, among other features.
