Nimsoft Inc. enhanced this week monitoring capabilities for Network Appliance Inc. (NetApp) resources, enabling enterprises and service providers to optimize the performance and availability of their critical data center assets, while driving down operational costs and maximizing service levels.

Through its multi-tenant monitoring of NetApp storage, Nimsoft Monitor allows customers to readily integrate management of these resources into both cloud and non-cloud environments.

Nimsoft provides integrated, modern IT management solutions for large number of enterprise and service provider customers globally, including 1&1, CDW, SoftLayer, SunGard Availability Services, Sur La Table, TriNet, and Virgin America. The company’s Nimsoft Unified Manager helps organizations monitor and manage IT services in increasingly complex business environments. Nimsoft products integrate with existing solutions at any point from the data center to the cloud, and are available on a pay-as-you-go basis.

“B2net has more than 1.5PB of mission critical client data under management,” said Jason Clark, managing director at B2net, a NetApp reseller and partner. “The scale of this environment and the number of vital business services that rely on our NetApp platforms meant we needed a monitoring platform that could give us a single unified view for managing the performance of our clients highly complex and performance-intensive computing infrastructure. We closely collaborated with Nimsoft on its support for NetApp platforms. Nimsoft Monitor now makes it even easier for our administrators to get the timely, intuitive, and comprehensive information they need to track and optimize NetApp performance.”

Nimsoft Monitor for NetApp provides administrators with comprehensive and detailed performance metrics to track and improve performance, including detailed monitoring of file systems, data movers, storage devices, physical enclosures, and network connections. The solution’s automated discovery, monitoring and reporting deliver exceptional administrative efficiency.

“Intelligent storage environments like NetApp represent the future of IT infrastructure,” said Chris O’Malley, Nimsoft CEO. “To get maximum business value from their investments in these sophisticated infrastructure solutions, customers need equally sophisticated monitoring capabilities—which is exactly what Nimsoft delivers.”

Nimsoft Monitor is a component of Nimsoft Unified Manager, a multi-tenant IT Management-as-a-Service solution that combines infrastructure monitoring and ready-to-use ITIL-based service management.
