Uptime Software announced Tuesday cloud services monitoring and physical and virtual resource monitoring for its up.time offering.

The management console program, plus agent programs that reside on servers provided by the Toronto-based software company can monitor cloud, virtual and physical resources in a single view.

"You connect the local management console and the cloud-based one together, and have a complete view of your datacenter and cloud from the up.time dashboard," said Alex Bewley, CTO, Uptime Software. "Using up.time, companies can now easily monitor, measure and manage cloud resources as well as physical and virtual stacks including applications, services and physical infrastructure like servers and network devices. This includes companies at any stage of cloud implementation, whether they are already running public clouds or just starting out."

Jean-Pierre Garbani, vice president and principal analyst, Forrester Research, commented, "IT is now fundamentally service oriented, and a service may span multiple platforms. It is necessary to provide service quality that the technological silos of IT be broken and replaced by cooperation. This is what a common view provides: a tool to facilitate this cooperation. Uptime Software is probably one of the few that are offering this capability today, although other companies working on application performance management are getting there quickly. None of them, however, provides the price/value ratio that Uptime provides today."

"With services like Amazon EC2, and infrastructure-as-a-service, ITR infrastructure is getting more complicated," said Bewley.

According to the company, "up.time can monitor services, monitor applications, monitor servers and monitor platforms from a unified dashboard, even across multiple datacenters." Physical resources that up.time can monitor Windows, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, Linux and Novell NetWare servers across one or many datacenters for all applications, services and infrastructure at every layer. It can monitor many virtual resources including VMware, Microsoft Hyper-V and Citrix Xen.
