uptime software Improves Patient Care for Leading Healthcare Organizations

Significant Adoption by the Healthcare Industry Validates the Need for Deep Performance Monitoring; up.time Cures IT Headaches

TORONTO--(Marketwire - January 27, 2011) - uptime software, Inc., the leader in system performance and availability software for midmarket and enterprise organizations, today announced steady growth into the healthcare industry with numerous customer wins in 2010. Improving patient care by offering deep insight into the performance of critical applications and systems, uptime software has seen strong healthcare customer adoption for its award-winning up.time systems management software that provides support for datacenters operating in physical, virtual and cloud environments.

The healthcare industry is under pressure to reduce costs and adhere to government regulations, yet maintain the highest level of service quality -- all with limited budgets. up.time allows healthcare organizations to streamline and optimize system performance, leading to organizational cost savings and freeing up IT administrators to focus less on "keeping the lights on" and more on improving patient care.

"System downtime or underperforming applications are not acceptable, especially in the healthcare industry," said Alex Bewley, CTO of uptime software. "As with many industries today, IT departments in the healthcare sector have fewer resources and smaller teams, yet system environments are growing more complex. up.time offers innovative performance monitoring technology that manages all types of infrastructures but with the ease-of-use praised by resource-strapped IT departments."

St. Luke's Hospital in Ohio needed a more proficient way to monitor, measure and manage its large heterogeneous IT environment consisting of both physical and virtual servers. The IT team first looked at a large enterprise-focused suite of software tools that proved too costly and time-intensive to manage.

"We brought in up.time to manage our entire system infrastructure -- one tool, that could do the work of an entire software suite, and for much less of the cost," said Rob Wise, lead infrastructure administrator of St. Luke's Hospital. "We monitor all of our server processes with up.time, including Web servers, databases and crucial interfaces to ensure the flow of critical data (like e-records) across all of our systems. up.time is intuitive, highly affordable and quick to deploy and made overall IT server management significantly easier. From day one, up.time performed exactly what we needed it to do."

In addition to St. Luke's Hospital, other recent uptime software healthcare customer wins include Mount Sinai Hospital, Kalispell Regional Medical Center and Crescent Healthcare, to name a few. 

up.time is complete IT systems management software that simplifies the performance and availability management of infrastructure, applications and services across physical, virtual and cloud platforms. Proven with more than 850 customers in 32 countries, up.time offers the depth that large, heterogeneous infrastructures require, yet is easy and affordable enough for mid-enterprise companies.
