Nimsoft has released a set of multi-tenant Unified Monitoring tools for its Vblock private cloud infrastructure, designed to provide increased flexibility when building, hosting and managing cloud resources.
The key addition to the Unified Monitoring service is the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS), which can carry out event correlation, automated recovery actions and full service level agreement reporting, the firm said.
NMS performs root-cause analysis so that problems can be detected anywhere across the Vblock stack, according to Nimsoft, allowing customers to take action quickly and prevent problems with proactive monitoring.
The software can also help to optimise Vblock resource allocation by automatically telling administrators when resources are being underused, as well as alerting to excessive use of network, CPU and disk capacity.
The multi-tenant architecture means that NMS customers can also transfer monitoring of Vblock environments to different areas without disruption or loss of data, the firm claimed.
Chris O'Connell, director of product marketing at Nimsoft, told V3.co.uk that half of Nimsoft's customers are service providers building platforms that need to be managed.
"The private cloud is [becoming] critical. Amazon has changed the game and every interface should be [user friendly] like that," he said.
"The Vblock allows an enterprise to enable a private cloud quickly. The addition of these management capabilities allows customers to look at the performance of the Vblock and traditional databases, helping to migrate workloads to the cloud."
Vblock-based private clouds offer a considerable competitive advantages over traditional means, as they are cost-efficient and responsive, and provide a reliable IT environment, according to Nimsoft chief executive Gary Read.
Pricing has yet to be confirmed, but Nimsoft said that NMS will be offered on a subscription basis.
