Nimsoft Selected by Ingram Micro Seismic for Use in Larger, More Complex IT Infrastructures

Nimsoft Monitoring Solution Chosen by World's Largest IT Distributor to Support Managed Service Providers Selling to Mid and Large Enterprises

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - August 31, 2009) - Nimsoft, the "Big 4" alternative for IT performance and availability monitoring solutions, today announced that Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM) will be featuring the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) in its Seismic managed services offering, equipping medium and large VARs and MSPs with the robust monitoring capabilities they need to grow their businesses.

Seismic is a comprehensive managed service portfolio that includes all the infrastructure and capabilities that VARs need to deliver proactive remote monitoring, managed security, business continuity services and the like to clients. With Seismic, VARs can introduce or expand managed services, quickly, conveniently, and cost effectively. Seismic provides a unique business advantage to channel partners, enabling them to earn higher margins, deliver enhanced value to clients, and build a collaborative and profitable managed services practice.

"Ingram Micro's Seismic offerings represent a promising opportunity for companies that are delivering managed services or looking to become managed service providers," said Dennis Callaghan, enterprise software analyst at The 451 Group. "With Seismic, the barrier for entry into adding or enhancing the managed services model is reduced. The addition of Nimsoft to this program will provide new options for VARs and MSPs as they seek to scale their businesses."

Under the new alliance, Ingram Micro North America will bring NMS to market. The new offering, called Seismic Enterprise Monitoring powered by Nimsoft, is now available to Ingram Micro channel partners in the U.S. and Canada. With NMS, customers can proactively monitor applications, servers, databases, and networks. In addition, customers will be able to use Nimsoft's Service Delivery Portal (SDP) as their key customer visualization platform.

"Nimsoft solutions are rapidly emerging as the de facto standard for successful MSPs that are looking to speed their growth," explained Gary Read, president and CEO of Nimsoft. "Many MSP customers have recently standardized on Nimsoft, which now has over 250 MSPs customers world wide, and this new alliance will further fuel expansion in this market. We're excited to be a part of the Seismic offering, and are already seeing tremendous interest from Ingram Micro's existing VAR and MSP partners who are actively selling into the mid-market and enterprise."

Highly robust remote monitoring capabilities are a critical requirement, both for MSPs that have a large collection of smaller customers, and for MSPs looking to serve the larger, more complex environments of mid-market organizations and enterprises. These larger organizations typically have large, heterogeneous environments that are relied on for an array of business critical services and have adopted such emerging technologies as virtualization, unified messaging, and cloud computing. Ingram Micro selected the Nimsoft solution specifically for their strengths in serving these demanding environments.

"Many of our Seismic partners are looking for a complementary availability monitoring and alerting solution that would allow them to scale their services and remotely monitor both physical and virtual network infrastructures with ease and efficiency," explained Justin Crotty, vice president, services, Ingram Micro North America. "With the new Seismic Enterprise Monitoring powered by Nimsoft, our partners are able to extend their value and services to mid-size and large enterprise clients without compromising profitability and performance."
