Nimsoft Introduces Alliance Program to Support Industry's First Unified Monitoring Solution

FusionStorm, Ingram Micro, and Rackspace Hosting Among 30+ Service Providers and ISVs to Join the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance to Provide Complete Visibility Into IT Infrastructure From the Datacenter to the Cloud

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - November 10, 2009) - Nimsoft, the first provider of Unified Monitoring™ solutions, today announced the launch of the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance as well as its charter members. 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 announced last month. Nimsoft Unified Monitoring is redefining the IT monitoring solutions market by providing today's enterprise with a total, unified view of both internal and external IT resources. Alliance members contribute to the Unified Monitoring technology ecosystem -- now estimated to be over $500 million globally -- by enhancing the Nimsoft solution through product and service enhancements and extensions.

Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance partners fall into three categories: service providers, solution partners, and technology development partners:

-- Service Provider Partners -- Members of this group deliver managed, hosted, cloud-based, and other related services that are monitored using the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS). Charter members include Alvaka, Atrion, BSG, CDW HMS, Data Electronics, ENKI, FusionStorm, Ingram Micro Inc, Seismic Division, IT Authorities, Longview, MicroMenders, PHNS, NetEnrich, Rackspace Hosting, and Thomas Duryea.

-- Solution Partners -- These ISVs and SaaS providers extend the Nimsoft solution by providing complementary IT service management solutions and capabilities such as net-flow traffic capture, service desk, and IT infrastructure library configuration management databases. Charter members include Acentix, Attention Soft, AutoTask, BigFix, ConnectWise, geoXMF, Plixer, Sanfir, Service-Now, Sensatronics, Shavlik, Stratavia, VaultLogix, and Wendia.

-- Technology Development Partners -- These partners are building data collection probes to extend the myriad of types of objects NMS monitors, from non-standard databases to ERP applications to geo-location-based devices, and more. Utilizing the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring solutions and APIs, these partners create probes that are then resold to Nimsoft customers. Charter members include InTeliNet and Agentil.

Unified Monitoring Alliance partners gain access to a growing and vibrant Nimsoft customer ecosystem -- Nimsoft Unified Monitoring solutions are currently used directly or through partners in over 10,000 end-user environments. Alliance partners gain access to co-marketing materials and services, including a listing in the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring solutions directory hosted on the Nimsoft website at

"We are excited to announce the launch of the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance as a part of our vision to define a new class of IT monitoring solutions. Tomorrow's business applications will reside on infrastructure from the internal datacenter to the cloud. Managing this requires cooperation among partners to deliver enterprises complete solutions across their internal and external assets," said Nimsoft President and CEO Gary Read. "The alliance not only expands opportunities for growth and collaborative innovation for our partners, but also effectively increases the breadth and depth of the systems monitoring and management solutions that Nimsoft offers to its customers. We expect the ability to co-market complementary third-party solutions and promote service providers that are powered by Nimsoft will accelerate the growth of our global ecosystem to multi-billions of dollars over the next two to three years."

"InTeliNet is pleased to join the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring Alliance," stated Lars Soraas, Chief Technology Officer, InTeliNet. "We look forward to working with Nimsoft to create tightly integrated and complementary solutions to address customers' communications and network management needs."

"Many enterprises need the ability to seamlessly monitor their cloud servers alongside their dedicated servers," said Emil Sayegh, General Manager, Rackspace Cloud. "The Nimsoft Monitoring Solution, now listed on Rackspace Cloud Tools, enables this and allows customers to understand the performance and availability of business applications that live in datacenters, the Rackspace Cloud and hybrids of the two."
