The Perfect Fit for Mid-Enterprise Systems Management: uptime software's New Release of up.time

Mid-Enterprise Companies Are Finding up.time Is Ideal as Their IT Systems Management Tool

TORONTO--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) -  Today, up.time software, Inc. released a new version of its extremely popular up.time product, which has over 700 customers in 32 countries. up.time is an 'all in one tool' for simplifying the management and monitoring of virtual, physical and cloud environments for mid-enterprise companies. Created to give mid-enterprise IT departments the ability to conduct deep monitoring for services, applications, servers and platforms across multiple datacenters with a single tool, this new version addresses the complex needs and challenges that many companies struggle with today.

Mid-enterprises are swamped by the complexity of IT environments that include applications and infrastructure spanning virtual, physical and cloud platforms. While there are expensive solutions available to large enterprises, there is little on the market for mid-sized enterprises, which face the very same challenges. These companies require deep IT systems management that's fast to deploy, easy to use and fits within tight budgets.

"More than 90 percent of our new customers are mid-enterprise. We know firsthand that these companies are not looking for a low-end product. They want a powerful systems management solution that is truly low maintenance, able to deploy quickly, and also affordable at a mid-enterprise price," said Alex Bewley, CTO of up.time software. "up.time is the perfect fit for mid-size companies that want deep monitoring of virtual and physical environments with a single tool but have constrained IT staff and budgets. Our simple per-physical-server pricing is leading the industry in terms of value."

Mount Sinai Hospital learned firsthand the benefits that up.time brings to IT. Over time, the hospital's IT environment had become overly complex while the demand to simplify technologies and operations in a cost-effective way had actually increased, explained Prateek Dwivedi, VP and CIO at Mount Sinai Hospital.

"With the help of tools like up.time's deep systems management and server monitoring, the hospital now has a single view across all our virtual and physical infrastructure and applications -- this has been a significant time management improvement for our clinical teams," Dwivedi said.

The new release of up.time includes:

Deep monitoring for mid-enterprises

  • Easy to understand per-physical-server pricing with no tiers or add-ons.
  • Very deep metrics, at the service, application and system resource levels without the complexity of "enterprise" tools.
  • Download and install in less than 15 minutes, and full deployment in as little as one day.
  • No external resources required to deploy and very low maintenance.
  • Deep 'Netflow' monitoring.

Simple management of virtual, physical and cloud environments with a single tool

  • Solve key virtualization challenges including identifying virtualization candidates, ensuring end-user performance and optimizing VM density.
  • Monitor a wide range of platforms including Windows, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, Linux and VMware.
  • Monitor thousands of servers across multiple data centers with 'single pane of glass' visibility into performance and availability.
  • Experiment with public cloud, as up.time monitors Amazon EC2.

Ensure service levels with proactive issue avoidance and automated healing
