Mutiny Limited was founded at the very end of 2000 as a spin-off from Manchester University's "Manchester Computing" laboratory. The focus of the business is to develop and bring to market software that comprises the "Mutiny Critical Services Monitoring Appliance" and associated products. The company spent its first year based at Manchester University before successfully securing venture-capital funding at the end of 2001. The offices moved to London, and the company embarked on a three-year joint venture with Toshiba Systems, which led to Mutiny supplying software to power the "Toshiba Network Monitor". Following Toshiba's major restructuring in 2004, Mutiny began to provide network-monitoring systems through the IT reseller channel and directly to end-users in the UK and Germany. Today's business model revolves around four product offerings, including Solo Appliances and a "White Label" core technology integration for other IT management platforms.
Mutiny can scale to over 16,000 devices per minute with over 200,000 elements/sensors from a single appliance with little to no impact on the network!
Mutiny Integrates directly into ServiceNow® for a central view of processes and services.
Mutiny has an extensive API for integration into your workflow systems.
Users can publish mutiny views in Teams and other in-house platforms.
No other platform comes close in terms of ease of use, rapid deployment and performance.
Mutiny can be set up, configured and be monitoring your network in less than a day! Staff can fully access it via the Web-based HTTPS front-end, allowing you to monitor your entire estate remotely from any device or location with a current Web browser.
Ease of Use
Mutiny has been designed from the outset to be simple to use. The user interface is based around Web Standards and is comprehensive yet intuitive to use. The monitored estate is viewed in customisable views and dashboards that provide controlled access to the data in any format required: device-based, map-based, rack-based, service-based, customer-based, table-based, event-based etc.
When adding devices, a sophisticated automatic discovery process identifies the type and classification of each device found so that the correctly monitored properties are added. Therefore no further configuration is required, and the monitoring will start immediately. All that is needed is SNMP access to the device.
Mutiny can also detect the Layer 3 topology of the network or sub-network and automatically create a root-cause tree that can quickly identify service failures and minimise Alerts.
When identifying problems, Mutiny uses Transient-Event Suppression to minimise the number of false alarms and ensure that Alerts are sent to the operators and contacts who need to see them.
Mutiny is licensed on a per monitored-device basis, regardless of the number of monitored properties on that device. This method of licencing is much simpler for planning and resourcing than a per-property based method.
Mutiny offers a variety of flexible licensing schemes. For example, for managed-service providers, Mutiny operates an audit-based system whereby the customer only pays for the Mutiny licences that are actually in use. This licencing method allows the service provider to grow and scale their customer base dynamically without pre-purchasing large numbers upfront.
