“As Ubuntu Server Edition sees more and more adoption at the core of the enterprise and business datacenter, the tools to monitor and manage these systems become critical”
“GroundWork is the most economical solution for enterprise-class external monitoring that we've found,” said Philip Martin, Director of Client Services at SymbioSystems. “It provides us with an as-our-customers-see-it view of our services along with historical data and customizable reports, all at a fraction of the price of specialized external monitoring vendors and a fraction of the deployment time of any other solution we tested. Even better, since GroundWork is built on an open platform, it can grow with us, without additional license fees or other hassles you would normally expect from vendors.”
“The release of 6.0 in September had a huge impact on our customer-base. Because of its popularity among new and current customers, the feedback we received drove all of the functionality improvements for 6.1,” said Simon Bennett, Sr. Director of Product Management for GWOS. “In this version, you will find both improvements in usability and performance, as well as, continued integration and support of leading open source operating systems like Ubuntu Server.”
“As Ubuntu Server Edition sees more and more adoption at the core of the enterprise and business datacenter, the tools to monitor and manage these systems become critical,” says Steve George, VP Sales and Product Management, Corporate Services at Canonical. “GWOS’ support for our current release and our Long Term Support release gives Ubuntu users a great choice of technically-leading tools at low cost to make their deployment even easier to monitor and manage.”
The new GroundWork Monitor Enterprise 6.1 includes improvements to the GWOS platform for customers with heterogeneous, complex IT environments. Pricing is not affected by the new release, Enterprise QuickStart remains available for $49 USD per year.
