uptime software released its latest update to up.time 7, a unified IT dashboard for watching over servers, applications, networks, and IT services.

up.time delivers multi-platform and easy-to-deploy monitoring, alerting and reporting for performance, availability and capacity management across the enterprise datacenter.

To create an effective IT management process, tooling must collect and share data across applications in exactly the format needed, without requiring administrators to spend hundreds of hours on integration services. Performance, availability and capacity management and monitoring is one piece of the IT puzzle, so it’s essential to use tools that can easily integrate with the rest of your IT and business applications. up.time’s new open RESTful API makes it easy to integrate data from up.time, including inventory and availability metrics, into any application in the enterprise.

New capabilities include:

- Display availability data in a way that makes sense to the business. Easily extract the current status of all elements and monitors along with detailed listings of availability information. Build dynamic topology maps that help IT understand the impact and root cause of any outage. Create dynamic topology ‘trees’ that allow administrators to view the status of the entire IT environment at the highest level and quickly drill down to the source of an outage in just a few clicks.

- See and respond to issues from a cell phone or tablet. up.time’s mobile interface, built using the new up.time API, allows users to quickly review any outage or performance issues and respond from the comfort of a mobile device.

- Easily create IT dashboard views that make sense to management. The up.time drag and drop dashboard builder (using the up.time API) can use any background image and will display the status of key infrastructure components or applications over top. World maps can show the status of your datacenters, images inside the datacenter can show key server status, IT service images and flows can display the health of each component, and much more. Customize dashboards with images to show your datacenters, servers, applications, networks and IT services in the way that makes the most sense for your IT department.

- An enterprise ready and easy to use API. Code in any language with the up.time RESTful API, which can be securely accessed directly from a web browser. No additional setup required, end users can access the up.time API using their normal credentials and will only gain access to the elements and features they would normally have access to via the up.time web interface. Each call to the API is authenticated and secured using SSL encryption.

- Integrate with other tools, applications and data. Easily move data in and out of up.time to integrate with other IT systems. Pull data into ticketing systems or corporate dashboards. Combine data from two up.time installations for a global view or easily combine up.time data with other any applications' data.

- New 64-bit Monitoring. A 100% improvement in up.time's speed and performance. up.time now utilizes a 64-bit monitoring stack, giving an incredible boost to out-of-the-box performance and providing near limitless monitoring scalability.

- Easier Administration. Enhanced auto-discovery speeds up deployment and administration time. Faster network discovery, faster bulk addition of elements and a new wizard based discovery process cut the auto-discovery time by over 50%.

"Meeting the needs of IT managers and system administrators in mid and large enterprise IT environments is what we focus on at uptime software. Continually adding new capabilities that make managing and administrating complex IT environments easier, and more cost effective, for our customers is paramount. This latest update of up.time brings high value, customizable dashboards to our customer base,” explains Alex Bewley, CTO of uptime software. “In addition, integrating with corporate dashboards, service desk, ticketing or other business or IT applications is a snap."
