Managed services platform provider Nimsoft Inc. has announced the formation of a new Unified Monitoring Alliance. The channel program, now with 31 charter members, is an association made up of managed, hosted and cloud-based solution provider participants. Members are supplied a listing in Nimsoft’s directory, along with co-marketing materials. Customers can use the alliance to investigate different partners and benchmark their offerings.
The alliance was created around Nimsoft’s recently debuted Unified Monitoring Initiative, which enables users to monitor and assess their IT infrastructure in its entirety, including not only data center resources, but also those based in the cloud.
Partners are charged a $1,000 program fee each year. Nimsoft is waiving fees for the first two years of membership for those partners that join by the end of 2009.
