CAMPBELL, Calif., Oct. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Nimsoft today announced that L7 Solutions (L7), an Australia-based infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) provider, has deployed Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) to provide valued-added monitoring of critical systems, including Vblock Infrastructure Packages.

NMS enables L7 to provide clients with comprehensive performance monitoring and capacity planning as well as customized reporting for constituencies ranging from front-line IT staff to upper management. These capabilities allow L7 to differentiate its offerings with enhanced, consolidated visibility into infrastructure health, thereby helping to ensure performance levels and increase customer satisfaction.

L7 offers consulting, integration and managed services to companies of all sizes. NMS provides insight into critical systems and applications, presenting key information in a clear, concise way via customized reporting and real-time dashboards. L7 can present a high-level aggregate view of critical information for upper management or more detailed views for technical audiences.

"NMS is a much simpler and more practical management solution than anything else we compared in the market, and it delivers the automation we need to fulfill the demanding requirements of clients with geographically-dispersed networks," said Glenn McAtee, general manager of managed services at L7. "NMS also plays a central role in our go-to-market strategy, since it enables us to differentiate ourselves with added value in an extremely competitive market."

NMS Supports L7's IaaS Strategy with Vblock Monitoring

L7 will also use NMS to support the deployment of Vblock infrastructure packages to customers as it rolls out its cloud computing initiatives. Vblock Infrastructure Packages are integrated cloud solutions packages from the Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) coalition-a collaboration of Cisco, EMC and VMware. NMS provides complete monitoring for Vblocks, either as an on premise or on-demand (SaaS) offering.

"With our delivery of the first complete monitoring solution for private cloud Vblock Infrastructure Packages, Nimsoft extends the industry leadership of our unified monitoring architecture-especially when it comes to the needs of forward-thinking IaaS providers like L7," said Gary Read, Nimsoft CEO. "Monitoring all aspects of Vblock cloud environments holistically, rather than looking at individual parameters for each component, enables service providers to address potential issues before they impact critical services dramatically optimizing agility and driving down costs."

In addition to deploying NMS across customer infrastructures, L7 is using NMS internally to help deliver consistent, reliable business operations.

"We're focused on offering cloud services and have a number of Vblock deals in process," said McAtee. "The combination of Vblock and NMS will be instrumental in helping us both improve internal operational efficiencies and deliver the highest quality of service to our clients."
