NMS to unify monitoring of diverse infrastructure components
Nimsoft, a provider of unified monitoring offering for virtualised data centres, has entered into a joint venture with T-Systems International GmbH and Fraport AG, Germany’s airport management company, for deploying Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) to monitor its complex, high performance data centre infrastructure.
NMS enables operational services (OS), which runs the critical applications that support core operations such as flight scheduling, security, and facilities management for Frankfurt Airport and other clients, to monitor its specialised applications and systems from a single, unified console.
The airport’s data centre includes more than 800 physical and virtual servers.
This unified monitoring simplifies IT management and enables OS to respond much more rapidly to any issues that might interrupt critical services.
OS selected NMS for its ability to unify monitoring of diverse infrastructure components, ease of use and deployment, and feature set, which includes SLA reporting, customisable probes and automated alerting.
OS team coordinator of system management and tools Christian Petsch said with NMS they can consolidate data from all systems and have deeper insight into their environment and can be much more proactive about heading off potential problems, no matter how small or subtle they might appear to be.
Nimsoft CEO Gary Read said NMS meets these challenges by consolidating tools, and making it easier for service providers to monitor complex environments to meet clients’ service-level requirements, while controlling their own cost of operations.
