Nimsoft has introduced Nimsoft Monitor for vCloud, an advanced solution for monitoring and optimizing the performance of VMware vCloud environments.

The highly dynamic nature of vCloud environments presents a substantial challenge to conventional IT monitoring tools, since resources are constantly being added, deleted and moved across both the on-premise data center and remote IaaS or PaaS clouds.

Nimsoft Monitor for vCloud meets this challenge by monitoring all of the physical and virtual systems and network resources that support any given application or service—regardless of their location. It provides the coverage, insights and automation administrators need to practically and efficiently monitor dynamic vCloud Director systems, along with their underlying cloud services and infrastructure.

At customizable intervals, Nimsoft Monitor for vCloud can also collect capacity and performance data from multiple vCloud Director instances—whether they are on-premise, running at a service provider or both.

“To safeguard the performance of critical applications running in vCloud environments, customers need unified, uninterrupted visibility into the entire infrastructure stack—regardless of what just moved where,” said Chris O’Malley, Nimsoft CEO. “Nimsoft Monitor automatically and cost-effectively provides this continuous visibility, so technical staffs can remain in control of even the most dynamic hybrid clouds.”

Nimsoft Monitor for vCloud provides:

* Automated discovery, deployment, configuration, and data aggregation for resources managed by vCloud Director.

* Powerful templates for creating policies that can be applied to specific resource groups.

* Correlated monitoring of resources supporting specific applications and services―including virtual machines and virtual LANs.

* Intuitive multi-tenant views of performance, availability, utilization, and other key monitoring data.

Nimsoft has been delivering monitoring solutions for VMware environments since 2007. Nimsoft Monitor for vCloud builds on this expertise to give customers the capabilities they need to manage the end-to-end performance and availability of critical applications and services and their underlying physical and network infrastructure.
