Network Documentation

Network diagrams simplified

Traditional network management tools do a good job of collecting network data but have a poor way of visualizing the relationship of IT to the business and people. They have a limited feature set for visualizing data and are vendor specific. Traditional drawing tools are customizable, but rely heavily on tedious manual work.

Graphical Networks’ netTerrain Logical combines the best of both worlds. Organizations can take their existing information and embed it in graphical, hierarchical diagrams that can be queried, drilled into, and distributed among the audience with granular security. All from one central visual web-portal. Organizations can now easily understand the relationships of assets and locate root causes quickly. IT resources are optimized and mapped to the business and mean-time-to-repair is reduced.
