(Ping! Zine) – LogicMonitor, an award-winning data center monitoring solution, has announced a strategic partnership with Zumasys, a leading provider of customized Cloud Computing solutions for small and medium sized businesses across North America.
With no capital outlay required, LogicMonitor’s hosted solution provides unparalleled monitoring, pre-emptive alerting, trending and analytics, essential for maintaining high-levels of business services across multi-vendor and service infrastructures.
On the new partnership, LogicMonitor CEO Steve Francis noted, “We’ve had the opportunity to work with Zumasys as a customer first, as they’ve been using LogicMonitor to monitor their hosting platform which runs across two data centers. They run a first-class operation with a technical staff that’s as sharp as they come. We feel extremely fortunate to have landed them as a strategic partner in serving our rapidly expanding customer base.”
Zumasys president, Paul Giobbi, notes “Our goal is to make it easy for companies to move their custom applications to the Cloud and manage their entire infrastructure and LogicMonitor helps us provide an excellent user experience. As we migrate more customers to our powerful virtual hosting platform, it’s essential that we have a monitoring solution capable of keeping up with all the change inherent in both server and desktop virtualization. LogicMonitor’s automated monitoring has proven to be one of the few systems that can do this reliably.”
Another driving factor for the Zumasys/LogicMonitor partnership was the need for unification. Giobbi adds, “We offer our customers multi-vendor solutions from a number of technology leaders including NetApp, VMware, Citrix, Cisco, and SonicWall. Having to rely on a separate monitoring solution for each aspect of the IT infrastructure creates a management nightmare, as well as cost-inefficiencies. With LogicMonitor, we give our customers the ability to monitor a broad mix of data center infrastructure from a single, affordable web-based application. That saves them a lot of time and allows them to focus on their business instead of trying to manage disparate monitoring systems.”
LogicMonitor is offered on a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) basis, which means no capital investment, no additional hardware and no maintenance. Network operations will have the ability to access dashboards, performance graphs and analytics, and receive critical alerts wherever they are via e-mail and SMS. LogicMonitor’s automated configuration and Active Discovery engine eliminate the manual configuration and ongoing maintenance required by other monitoring solutions. The system can be deployed in under an hour, giving operations staff virtually instant visibility into their entire IT estate from a single web-based portal.
