PR Newswire -- July 27, 2010

CAMPBELL, Calif., July 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Nimsoft, a business unit of CA Technologies (Nasdaq: CA), today announced new "see as you go--pay as you go" capabilities of its industry-leading, unified monitoring solutions that enable service providers to bring elastic IT offerings to market.

Available as part of the Nimsoft Monitoring Solution (NMS) and Nimsoft On Demand offerings, the extended feature set includes real-time usage metering, elastic portlets and unified service dashboards. Service providers and IT staffs can now automatically create and deliver monitoring data and alerts that expand and contract with cloud and virtualized service delivery, while tracking and archiving usage in real time for auditing and billing purposes.

"Nimsoft is well-known for its flexible, scalable approach to monitoring internal and external cloud services," said Albert Lee, senior analyst, Enterprise Management Associates. "These real-time usage metering capabilities and customized dashboards look to be a practical development for IT administrators to monitor and manage infrastructure and services, in line with the continued growth of the 'pay as you go' model we are seeing increasingly embraced across the industry."

Elastic IT services are highly appealing to customers who want their costs to dynamically align with their actual utilization. These new Nimsoft capabilities simplify the real-time monitoring and management of infrastructures that service providers use to deliver elastic IT services--enabling them to automate the presentation of monitoring dashboards to clients and flexibly bill for their monitoring services.

"Our ISV partners are extending their on-premise enterprise application products to include on-demand SaaS ones," said Marty Gauvin, CEO and president of Virtual Ark, an international managed services company. "With these new features, Nimsoft On Demand allows us to adjust monitoring services depending on our clients' dynamic needs. This enables us to align our costs closely to revenues from end users buying the SaaS solutions we provide through our ISV partners, thereby significantly reducing both the risk and cost of delivering an on-demand SaaS version of their traditional enterprise applications. The enhanced Nimsoft solution will help us continue to provide premiere service levels and improve both our top and bottom lines."
