As the worldwide IT management market for emerging enterprises and line-of-business customers continues to rapidly expand, CA Technologies has released CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap to aid costumers in achieving enterprise-class visibility.
CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap us a free, feature-rich version of the acclaimed CA Nimsoft Monitor solution that promotes resource-constrained customers' visibility of their business-critical IT services.
Unlike existing freeware, freemiums, time-limited trials, open-source tools or mid-market commercial products, CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap can be up and running in as little as an hour, rather than requiring extensive setup and configuration. It aims to provide robust performance and availability monitoring capabilities for network resources, physical and virtual servers, storage, databases and more in a single, fully-integrated solution.
"Until today, under-resourced customers faced an unacceptable choice between non-integrated 'point' monitoring tools, technically challenging open-source code, and conventional enterprise-class technology that cost too much and took too long to implement," said John Smith, GM, infrastructure management, CA Technologies. "With CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap, these customers finally have a solution that genuinely meets their specific needs."
CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap addresses the needs of emerging enterprises, which lack the resources of their large corporate counterparts, but are no less dependent on the health of their IT environments.
It also gives large enterprise IT organisations and departmental IT service teams the unique opportunity to adopt next-generation management technology without cost or unnecessary risk -- allowing them to more aggressively drive down operational costs and better safeguard service delivery as their IT environments become increasingly dynamic.
CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap provides dashboards, alarms and guided workflows to help users quickly pinpoint and resolve issues along with built-in "tips and tricks" and best practices that flatten users' learning curves and speed time-to-value.
"Historically, there has been a fairly significant disconnect between the low appetite of emerging enterprises for management overhead and the high cost/complexity of the tools they required to adequately safeguard their critical IT services," said Jim Frey, VP of research, EMA. "CA Technologies is clearly attempting to address this market disconnect with both CA Nimsoft Monitor and its new introductory 'Snap' version."
