IBM has unveiled an online service available through a monthly subscription, which allows IT managers to manage their data centres using Tivoli systems management in the cloud.
The Tivoli Live Monitoring Services aims to provide a service to help IT staff identify and address potential outages and bottlenecks that threaten application availability before impacting end-users' notice. IBM said that when the service detects a potential problem - such as running out of resource capacity - it automatically alerts IT operations and displays the relevant information in a dashboard to help analyse and correct the issue.
It provides users with access to pre-configured and dedicated instances of IBM Tivoli Monitoring 6.2.1, IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Microsoft Applications 6.2 and IBM Tivoli Composite Application Manager for Applications 6.2.
IBM said the service supports up to 500 monitored resources such as operating systems, applications and devices.
