Provider of Unified Monitoring, Nimsoft, has unveiled a new partner Programme incorporating managed, hosted, cloud and SaaS providers, as well as ISVs, in support the its Unified Monitoring initiative announced last month.

Nimsoft claims it is “redefining the IT monitoring solutions market” by providing the enterprise with a unified view of both internal and external IT resources, with Unified Monitoring Alliance partners offering the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) with their own product and service enhancements and extensions.

The firm says the programme allows Nimsoft’s current service provider customers with a formal way to publicise their use of Nimsoft in the services that they deliver to end customers. Partners fall into three categories: service providers, solution partners, and technology development partners.

Service Provider Partners deliver managed, hosted, cloud-based, and other related services that are monitored using NMS. Charter members include Alvaka, Atrion, BSG, CDW HMS, Data Electronics, ENKI, FusionStorm, Ingram Micro Inc, Seismic Division, IT Authorities, Longview, MicroMenders, PHNS, NetEnrich, Rackspace Hosting, and Thomas Duryea.

ISVs and SaaS providers (Solution Partners) extend the Nimsoft solution by providing complementary IT service management solutions and capabilities such as net-flow traffic capture, service desk, and IT infrastructure library configuration management databases. Members include Acentix, Attention Soft, AutoTask, BigFix, ConnectWise, geoXMF, Plixer, Sanfir, Service-Now, Sensatronics, Shavlik, Stratavia, VaultLogix, and Wendia.

Meanwhile, Technology Development Partners build data collection probes to extend the types of objects NMS monitors, from non-standard databases to ERP applications to geo-location-based devices, and more. Utilising the Nimsoft Unified Monitoring solutions and APIs, these partners create probes that are then resold to Nimsoft customers. Partners include InTeliNet and Agentil.

“Tomorrow’s business applications will reside on infrastructure from the internal datacentre to the cloud. Managing this requires cooperation among partners to deliver enterprises complete solutions across their internal and external assets,” says Nimsoft president and CEO Gary Read.

“The alliance not only expands opportunities for growth and collaborative innovation for our partners, but also effectively increases the breadth and depth of the systems monitoring and management solutions that Nimsoft offers to its customers. We expect the ability to co-market complementary third-party solutions and promote service providers that are powered by Nimsoft will accelerate the growth of our global ecosystem to multiple billions of dollars over the next two to three years.”

“Many enterprises need the ability to seamlessly monitor their cloud servers alongside their dedicated servers,” adds Emil Sayegh, general manager, Rackspace Cloud. “The Nimsoft Monitoring Solution, now listed on Rackspace Cloud Tools, enables this and allows customers to understand the performance and availability of business applications that live in datacenters, the Rackspace Cloud, and hybrids of the two.”
