In a move that disrupts the rapidly growing worldwide IT management market for emerging enterprises and departmental/line-of-business customers, CA Technologies today announced the availability of CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap'"a free, feature-rich version of its acclaimed CA Nimsoft Monitor solution.
"Until today, under-resourced customers faced an unacceptable choice between non-integrated 'point' monitoring tools, technically challenging open-source code, and conventional enterprise-class technology that cost too much and took too long to implement,' said
CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap addresses the needs of emerging enterprises'"which lack the resources of their large corporate counterparts, but are no less dependent on the health of their IT environments. It also gives large enterprise IT organizations and departmental IT service teams the unique opportunity to adopt next-generation management technology without cost or unnecessary risk'"allowing them to more aggressively drive down operational costs and better safeguard service delivery as their IT environments become increasingly dynamic.
"Historically, there has been a fairly significant disconnect between the low appetite of emerging enterprises for management overhead and the high cost/complexity of the tools they required to adequately safeguard their critical IT services,' said
Reaction from beta testers of CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap has been positive.
"CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap offers the perfect combination of rich functionality and extreme ease of deployment,' said
"CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap was quick to set up and even easier to use," said
The initial release of CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap supports English, Simplified Chinese, Japanese, Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese. It is built on the same code base as CA Nimsoft Monitor release 7. CA Technologies plans to synchronize future releases of both products, which will continue to retain the same code base.
CA Technologies has created a community support site, CA Snap Central, that is open to everyone, including CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap customers. The site includes a community discussion board, free documentation, a knowledge base, instructional videos and a forum for sharing ideas for future releases.
A free download of CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap is available here. The product is also available from CA Technologies partners.
