CAMPBELL, Calif., Dec. 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Nimsoft today announced that Basefarm, a leading Northern European provider of operational and IT services, is deploying the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) across its infrastructure of 3,000 servers and the services and the applications running on those servers.

NMS provides a robust, flexible solution for monitoring complex Web-based services and applications. Basefarm selected NMS for its scalability, detailed reporting and customized dashboards, which enable the company to optimize the client experience and deliver a greater range of large-scale services.

Basefarm's client base spans a broad range of industries, so it must be able to effectively deliver services with high traffic and complexity -- such as portals, online publications, streaming, search engines, and e-commerce. NMS will replace the numerous open source and commercial solutions that Basefarm had been using to monitor its infrastructure.

"Prior to selecting NMS, we evaluated a number of open source alternatives as well as the Microsoft SCOM solution," said Bjart Kvarme, Basefarm CTO. "NMS demonstrated the scalability and functionality necessary to support our growing and constantly changing business."

NMS will support Basefarm's newest cloud computing services, which include Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS), Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). "NMS will be a key technology enabler as Basefarm expands its offerings to address clients' rapidly evolving cloud strategies," said Kvarme.

"Service providers like Basefarm face a dual challenge having to both successfully manage their own environments and give their clients visibility into the appropriate portion of those environments," said Gary Read, Nimsoft CEO. "NMS is uniquely able to provide this essential two-fold functionality -- while also offering the flexibility Basefarm needs as it adapts to constantly changing customer requirements."
