Midrange Performance Group

‘Performance’ has been our Middle Name for 23 Years

Share |

Midrange Performance Group (MPG), founded in 1990 shortly after the announcement of the AS/400* server, started life as a performance consultancy, early on sharpening its focus as a software developer for the platform’s performance reporting and developing AutoTech, a performance software as a service for the AS/400. This eventually became the foundation for IBM’s service offering Performance Management for Power Systems*. As the company grew and evolved, MPG became an IBM Business Partner, providing customers with AS/400 solutions, usually including the company’s flagship software product, Performance Navigator*, a Windows* technology-based software solution providing performance reporting, capacity planning and modeling, and problem determination functions. PerfNav, as it is known, has become the software of choice among IBM Business Partners worldwide for capacity planning and presales support for the IBM Power Systems platform. Always responding to customer and partner feedback, MPG launched Power Navigator in 2005, a solution for AIX* and Linux* servers; and more recently, PureFlex* and PowerLinux* servers. The Navigator Family* of products supports virtualization and all the complexities of PowerVM* technology and configuration. MPG’s solutions help IT drive resource utilization that has made Power Systems servers famous as efficient data center workhorses. Server consolidation, including workloads from IBM i, AIX, Linux and even competing platforms is also supported under MPG’s What-If capacity planning function. The exclusive What-If functionality also supports the modeling and complex internal disk configurations for IBM i and provides all the disk metrics to model external disk configurations for any operating system.

Together, the Navigator Family supports more than 1,000 customers worldwide. MPG also supports more than 120 IBM hardware resellers globally, with our software engaged in more than 2,000 capacity plans per year.

MPG—a true IBM partner, as solid as the Rockies we hail from.
