CA Technologies announced that 5,000 customers including SMBs, Fortune 1000 companies and IT service providers in 147 countries have downloaded the free CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap solution in 100 days.
In a statement, CA Technologies said these customers are finding CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap to be a compelling solution for proactively monitoring their servers, networks, storage, data bases and applications to ensure reliable delivery of critical IT service to end-users and customers.
For instance, Indmar Marine Engines, a manufacturer of gasoline-powered, inboard marine engines, is using CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap as its primary IT monitoring tool—replacing Spiceworks.
“CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap was a breeze to install and immediately gave us insight into issues that we hadn’t noticed with Spiceworks that could have caused us significant business disruption,” said Kris Kirby, IT manager, Indmar Marine Engines. “We find the dashboards in CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap more usable than what we had to work with in Spiceworks, with fewer false positives and more monitoring configuration options.”
CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap is a feature-rich version of CA Technologies CA Nimsoft Monitor solution and shares the same code base. It is free for up to 30 monitored devices each with unlimited monitors—not a limited time-trial.
Meanwhile, CA Technologies introduced a new version of CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap that provides monitoring for a range of IT resources—including Citrix CloudPlatform and VMware vCloud—and a free mobile app that allows IT staff to keep an eye on the health of their infrastructure from both iOS and Android devices.
Users of CA Nimsoft Monitor Snap who need to manage more than 30 devices can easily upgrade to the paid-license version of CA Nimsoft Monitor, which has been enhanced with new alarm management features, IPv6 support, additional languages and more.
