Powerful Cloud Monitoring Capabilities From up.time

uptime software Enables Customers to Monitor Next-Generation IT Infrastructure; Provides Superior Cloud Monitoring for Any Stage of Cloud Implementation

TORONTO--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Today, uptime software, Inc. announced powerful cloud monitoring capabilities to its award-winning up.time solution. With up.time, organizations can easily monitor, measure and manage cloud, virtual and physical stacks, including applications, services and infrastructure across one or multiple datacenters. up.time offers a single console that makes monitoring intuitive across all environments -- from Amazon EC2 to VMware to Windows to UNIX. Companies at any stage of cloud implementation -- whether they are already running public clouds or just starting out -- can quickly and affordably gain control over their datacenter and the cloud.

"Our customers deal with the current monitoring challenges presented by hybrid virtual and physical environments, and tell us they are ready to leverage the cloud. up.time is the hybrid monitoring solution for mid-enterprises, as it deeply covers all three environments," said Alex Bewley, CTO of up.time software. "Any company with a cloud initiative can 'weatherproof' their IT infrastructure with up.time. The new capabilities extend the IT opportunities of our customers at no extra cost to them, which underscores the value up.time brings to organizations seeking to exploit the advantages of the cloud."

In today's complex IT environments, effective management and monitoring tools must understand the new virtual/physical/cloud hybrid environment and how it affects application performance. up.time helps over-burdened IT staff by triggering automated actions to deal with changing workloads in order to keep up with capacity demands. up.time customers benefit with the newfound ability to:

  • Determine what to migrate into the cloud first by quickly identifying candidates for the cloud with detailed and relevant historical performance metrics that profile workloads in physical and virtual environments.
  • Easily monitor and manage physical, virtual, cloud and outsourced assets from a single console. up.time takes into account cloud monitoring (Amazon EC2), virtual server monitoring (VMware) and physical server monitoring (Windows, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, Linux, and Novell NetWare) across one or many datacenters for all applications, services and infrastructure at every layer.
  • Isolate problems quickly with intelligent, customizable alerting that automatically eliminate false alerts and help end recurring outages.
  • One of the most affordable hybrid monitoring (virtual, physical, cloud) solutions on the market today.

"I could never justify buying even one more server based on the TCO we see with the Amazon cloud. The cost of our IT has dropped dramatically and a key part of this transition from physical to cloud was our ability to monitor and manage our remaining physical infrastructure (remotely) and our new cloud services and applications from a single dashboard. We chose up.time to scale with us as we grow." -- Advanced Innovations Inc.

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 one or many datacenters with a single tool, up.time addresses the complex needs and challenges that many companies struggle with today.
