uptime software continues FREE updates with new service pack
uptime is continuing to delight its enterprise customers with the latest free update for ‘up.time 4.’ uptime software, a software company since 1993, develops powerful enterprise server monitoring and capacity planning software that helps increase the value of IT while drastically cutting Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for IT departments.

"We want to set the bar high with our product and customer support, and made the strategic decision that once a customer purchases up.time with support, all downstream service packs and future releases of the product are absolutely FREE. We want up.time customers to be customers for life," said Nick Johnson, Director of Marketing, uptime software.

The newest release, SP4, will provide highly valued features for up.time customers, with a focus on consolidation and virtualization, including:

  • VMware ESX 3: New and improved profiling, monitoring, and reporting for VMware ESX 3 – Virtual Infrastructure.
  • VMware ESX 3: System alerting based on instances exceeding CPU, memory, % Ready, or disk busy for VMware ESX 3 – Virtual Infrastructure.
  • VMware ESX 3: The ability to perform workload profiling across an ESX farm, helping you find the ‘busy’ levels of an instance is as it migrates between systems, including information on the total compute capacity of your ESX environment
  • AIX LPARs: Enhanced support for AIX LPARs. Use your HMC to inventory all managed LPARs and perform workload profiling of your LPARs within the physical pSeries systems. Graph your micro-partitioned CPU usage against entitlements to determine which LPARs are consuming too many resources.
  • New Custom Alerting: New alerting formats allow you to send pager, email, or SMS-based alerts with specialized information about the services that need attention.

up.time is an enterprise-class server performance and availability monitoring solution for virtualized and physical servers that seamlessly works across platforms (Linux, Solaris, AIX, Windows, Novell), across applications (WebSphere, WebLogic, Exchange, SAP, etc), and across databases (SQL Server, Sybase, Oracle, etc). It's more affordable than most software maker's heavy, multi-component programs and is enabled through a friendly web browser interface, providing secure access at anytime and from anywhere.
