uptime software Helps University Health System Use IT to Drive Better Healthcare

uptime software Provides Proactive IT Systems Management and Unprecedented Performance

TORONTO--(Marketwire - April 21, 2010) -  uptime software, inc. announced that University Health System (UHS), one of the most prestigious health care systems in the U.S., relies on up.time® to better monitor, measure and manage its IT systems. Driven by the need to proactively manage its IT environment, the company replaced its current toolset with up.time for increased performance and less maintenance at an attractive price point.

UHS wanted a systems management tool that would provide deep performance and capacity reporting, while monitoring both virtual and physical servers, including AIX, Windows, and VMware. UHS found the ability to automatically generate historical performance reports and pinpoint potential problems before they occur as huge differentiator for up.time's technology.

"Our IT environment was becoming difficult to manage as we grew and our systems management tool couldn't scale or provide deep enough reporting to satisfy our needs. With up.time, reporting is simple and scale is a non-issue. For example, we can quickly run a report or graph that identifies potential capacity issues before they happen," said David Pearson, Senior Network Engineer, University Health Systems.

Since deploying up.time, UHS has experienced the following results:

  • Literally no additional resources needed to deploy or administer up.time.
  • Yearly cost savings estimated at $15-$20K.
  • Budget justification is easier with capacity planning reports and graphs for managers.
  • Deep monitoring across multiple environments from the up.time dashboard.
  • Complete enterprise systems management at a mid-enterprise price.

"We are seeing more and more customers outgrowing their current solutions and seeking a powerful systems management solution that is truly low maintenance and able to deploy quickly, with no hassles, at a mid-enterprise price," said Alex Bewley, Chief Technology Officer of uptime software. "up.time is the perfect fit for mid-enterprises 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 licensing is leading the industry in terms of value."
