SunGard Builds Cloud Offering Around Nimsoft Monitoring Solution


NMS enables high availability and insight into cloud services while reducing costs through automation and rapid scalability

Campbell, Calif. ––Nimsoft today announced that SunGard has selected the Nimsoft Monitoring System (NMS) as the underlying platform for its new cloud services offering, giving its clients high availability and rapid elasticity, while providing true automation that simplifies service management.

NMS addresses many of the challenges of deploying public and private clouds with unique features like status and usage monitoring, trending, detailed reporting, SLA tracking, and integration with a comprehensive environment that continuously monitors both the physical and virtual infrastructure. Deployed with a reliable, highly scalable, architecture that optimizes system resources or network bandwidth, NMS provides streamlined configuration and deployment, extensive APIs for integration to existing tools and cloud-compatible business models.

“Our customers rely on us to provide highly available services to support their mission critical applications,” said Rob Walters, vice president of product management at SunGard. “Nimsoft intuitive APIs enable us to provide comprehensive, proactive managed services and allow us to deploy customized monitoring policies on the fly. By incorporating NMS in our cloud offering, we can give clients real-time insight into what’s happening in their IT environments, while proactively mitigating potential problems and delivering higher availability of business-critical services.”

With NMS as the basis for its new cloud offering, SunGard can reduce the risk of setting high service expectations while knowing these optimized service levels can be tracked on behalf of the client and visualized in client- facing service dashboards.

“Nimsoft continues to develop targeted solutions for service providers eager to tap into the market potential of the cloud,” said Gary Read, Nimsoft CEO. “NMS delivers features, such as programmable APIs, that service providers need to deliver reliable, highly available cloud services―while empowering them to drive down costs with automation and economies of scale.”
