N-able Technologies, a provider of remote monitoring and management (RMM) automation software for managed service providers (MSPs) and IT departments, announced the general availability of N-central 8.1, its next-generation managed services technology platform.

Now available worldwide, the new N-central 8.1 RMM automation platform offers VMware remote monitoring and delivers new Scheduled Task improvements along with automated warranty expiration monitoring. Technicians "on the go" will also appreciate the new N-central mobile app now supporting the Android mobile platform.

These features are all designed to ensure a clear line of sight into the network and drive further business success and improved productivity for MSPs, IT administrators and their customers.

Highlights of N-central's new capabilities for VMware include monitoring of the key hardware components of ESX and ESXi servers, such as power supplies, fans and RAID-related hardware, as well as in-depth profiling of the performance of an ESX/ESXi server's disk sub-system. Together, these features give N-central administrators the opportunity to quickly identify and address both hardware and performance issues before they affect those users hosted on a company's virtual infrastructure.

The new N-central 8.1 platform also introduces Android device support, which is accessible by downloading the N-central mobile app from the Android Market. The N-central mobile application, first introduced for Apple mobile devices in May, makes viewing active issues and job status pages from an Android-based mobile device fast and convenient. It also gives MSPs and IT administrators the ability to acknowledge alerts and view devices, and review the details of a particular service.

Additional scheduling options now available in N-central 8.1 deliver greater flexibility and new ways for MSPs and IT administrators to improve network performance and customer satisfaction. Scheduled Tasks can now be configured to run multiple times in one day, on the last day of each month, on an interval basis or only during specific months, with many other new and useful scheduling configurations also available.
