CAMPBELL, Calif., Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Nimsoft, a CA Technologies company, today announced that GreenQloud has selected the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) to provide clients with 24x7 visibility into its unique, carbon-neutral compute cloud. As an integrated component of GreenQloud's Truly Green™ Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) offering, NMS will deliver comprehensive, intuitive monitoring of clients' critical applications, systems and network resources via customized portals.
GreenQloud's Truly Green service takes advantage of Iceland's hydro and geothermal energy sources—as well as its cool climate—to drastically reduce carbon emissions associated with powering and cooling IT infrastructures. This enables clients to reduce IT-related energy costs and get relief from the growing tax burdens now being levied for carbon emissions.
By implementing NMS, GreenQloud will be able to combine its powerful "Green IT" value proposition with state-of-the-art cloud resource monitoring.
"Clients are very interested in becoming more environmentally responsible when it comes to IT, but they certainly don't want to achieve that responsibility at the cost of service quality or peace of mind," said Eirikur Hrafnsson, CEO and co-founder of GreenQloud. "With Nimsoft, we are complementing our best-of-the-best energy model with best-of-the-best monitoring capabilities."
NMS integrates seamlessly with the Truly Green cloud and supports GreenQloud's pay-per-use pricing model. NMS also enables GreenQloud to offer clients a flexible set of monitoring options ranging from a baseline package to a variety of premium add-ons.
"It is very rewarding to have NMS recognized by an industry leader like GreenQloud as the top solution for providing IaaS clients with secure, adaptable visibility into their pay-per-use cloud resources," said Gary Read, Nimsoft CEO. "We are particularly excited about the opportunity to support a partner that is tackling the very critical and timely issue of Green IT."
Headquartered in Iceland, GreenQloud is Truly Green™ because it is 100% powered by renewable geothermal and hydropower energy. Being Truly Green means that GreenQloud doesn't need to compromise in computing power and will always strive to use the best hardware available. GreenQloud is also uniquely situated right between Europe and North America and can deliver hosting and storage for both markets from one place due to the multiple high speed fiber connections to Iceland.
