Expanded Cloud Offerings Set Solid Foundation for Future
CA WORLD, LAS VEGAS, May 17 /CNW/ - Nimsoft, a business unit of CA Technologies (NASDAQ: CA), today announced several significant enterprise and service provider customer wins and the introduction of several exciting new products-including Nimsoft On Demand, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) version of the company's flagship monitoring solution.
"Our strategy for cloud computing is clearly paying near-term dividends in terms of sales and partnerships-while also providing us with a strong foundation for capitalizing on the market's enormous long-term potential," said Gary Read, senior vice president and general manager of the Nimsoft business unit at CA Technologies. "Now, with the CA Technologies acquisition complete, we'll be able to bring even more resources to bear in maximizing this potential."
Following is more information about some of the recent accomplishments:
- Rackspace standardizes on Nimsoft. Rackspace, one of the global
leaders in hosting and cloud computing and a long-standing Nimsoft
customer, has standardized on Nimsoft across its operations, both to
offer enhanced infrastructure and application solutions to its managed
hosting customers, and to monitor its internal IT and cloud
infrastructures. The Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) will be deployed
across more than 60,000 Microsoft Windows and Linux systems.
- Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance membership continues rapid
growth. In the past several months, nine more partners joined the Nimsoft
Unified Monitoring Alliance, bringing the total to 45. The alliance is
composed of leading managed and hosted service providers, cloud and SaaS
providers, and ISV development partners that support the Nimsoft Unified
Monitoring initiative through product and service enhancements and
extensions. New members of the alliance include Bacula Systems, Beachhead
Solutions, Mibtree, Mobile Armor, SOASTA, and The Corvid Group.
- Nimsoft On Demand unveiled. Nimsoft On Demand, a Software as a
Service (SaaS) Unified Monitoring(TM) solution, delivers the robust
capabilities and benefits of IT monitoring as an on-demand solution. With
Nimsoft On Demand, emerging enterprises and service providers can
maintain visibility into their business-critical IT infrastructure-
including both their internal assets and those in the cloud-without
having to purchase, administer, or deploy monitoring hardware and
software on their own premises. New customers have already signed up for
this service, including SyCom Technologies and American Integration.
- Seven new products delivered. In addition to Nimsoft on Demand,
Nimsoft unveiled several other important new products, including Unified
Monitoring Portal, a Web 2.0 portal that provides an intuitive, online
view of monitoring data; Power Monitor, which enables users to monitor
datacenter power efficiency and UPS status through a single dashboard;
googleAppEngine and googleApps, for monitoring the domain performance of
Google Apps and the status of the Google AppEngine application;
ocs_monitor, for monitoring Microsoft Office Communications Server; and
RCA and Topology Manager, which offers advanced root cause analysis,
automated network topology creation, and active status maps.
- 26 new customer wins. In recent months, Nimsoft recorded deals with
such marquis enterprise brands as Sur La Table and Best Western Hotels.
In addition, the company added many new service provider customers,
including Interactive E-Solutions, L7 Solutions, NetGain Information
Systems, SyCom Technologies, and QTS, the second largest owner of data
center space in the U.S.
