CAMPBELL, Calif., July 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nimsoft, a business unit of CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA), today announced it has launched a new partner program that significantly expands the breadth of training and professional services available to customers. Additionally, the company announced the continued, rapid expansion of its services, solutions, and market adoption -- for both traditional data center deployments and cloud environments.
New Placement Center Program Yields Extended Service Coverage
Through the new Nimsoft Placement Center program, the company has dramatically expanded its services coverage. The Placement Center is a program that matches Nimsoft customers with service providers who have the in-depth, hands-on expertise needed to deliver product training and professional services, including implementation services, new probe development, and product customization. One third of all Nimsoft services are being provided by these partners -- including dakoServ, Enki, IntelliNet Corporation (Cleveland, OH) and Mibtree -- and new partners are continually joining the program.
Penetration in Cloud Services
The unparalleled capabilities of the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) include its scalability, ease of use, and support for dynamic virtualized environments. This unique package has led to broad adoption of the solution, not only with enterprises adopting cloud services, but also with cloud service providers seeking to optimize the performance and availability of their infrastructures. Leading cloud service providers including GreenQloud, OpSource and SoftLayer, have recently selected and deployed NMS.
Enhanced Solution Offerings
In recent weeks, Nimsoft has delivered a host of new features and capabilities to its Unified Monitoring Architecture including:
- Expanded cloud coverage – NMS and Nimsoft On Demand now can monitor Microsoft Office Azure cloud deployments.
- Remote access through SSL –Nimsoft customers can set up SSL tunnels to remotely access servers and desktops; MSPs can remotely monitor and control a client's servers, without a VPN connection.
- XML parsing – Customers can now aggregate data from a number of XML documents for monitoring critical status information, which can be used to trigger alarms and alerts.
- Expanded auditing – NMS and Nimsoft On Demand now feature expanded capabilities for tracking additions and changes to the monitoring infrastructure performed by users and the solution itself, so organizations can better report and monitor activities.
Compatibility and Industry Engagement
Nimsoft has also augmented its existing infrastructure coverage with expanded monitoring capabilities for high-availability cluster servers, Exchange servers, Cisco Unified Communications, Microsoft Office Communications Server, VMware, and more. In addition, through the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance (NUMA), Nimsoft has expanded its monitoring coverage, both in the data center and in the cloud. New NUMA members include Tooblue Technologies, Pineapp Canada and Diamond Informatics GmbH.
Expanded Market Adoption
Through its leading offerings and unparalleled customer focus, Nimsoft continues to enjoy strong demand and new customer wins.
