Nimsoft has introduced a new online diagnostic tool that enables clients to quickly assess their readiness for monitoring cloud environments, and also announced support for Cisco® Unified Computing System (UCS), Cisco’s next-generation automated blade-server system infrastructure.

The IT Monitoring Cloud Readiness Self Assessment tool helps IT teams gauge their current cloud monitoring capabilities and challenges, so they can make well-informed decisions about how to optimally manage their planned cloud environments. After taking a brief online survey, users receive a customized report that quantifies their technical readiness, organizational preparedness and IT/business alignment. Based on these results, the tool provides best-practices guidance about how an organization can safeguard the success of its cloud initiatives with effective monitoring.

Support for Cisco UCS and other Cloud Requirements
Nimsoft has also added comprehensive monitoring support for Cisco UCS to the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS). Cisco UCS is designed for dynamic, scalable and highly virtualized data centers and cloud environments. NMS adapts to the flexibility inherent in Cisco UCS, discovering changes in physical elements (fans, power supplies, servers, etc.) and then applying monitoring through the use of service profiles that facilitates the configuration and deployment of the solution. NMS also monitors Cisco UCS components within a single, common framework with other cloud and traditional data center resources, including network, storage, virtualization, web applications and more.
