up.time 4 is a cross-platform, client-server server monitoring product. The vendor, uptime software, labels it as: 'Enterprise monitoring and planning software that just works', so we decided to see if its claim was true.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) April 3, 2007
One of the problems with technology today is that every product out there claims it's easy to use, has a lower total cost of ownership and will help IT departments do a job better. The painful truth is that most of this is nothing short of marketing 'puffery.' Marketing what? In one word, lies.
When it comes to server monitoring, capacity planning, IT systems monitoring, SLA reporting, application monitoring, and IT services monitoring, this is clearly the case. So, how can one find products that walk the talk? Look for credible, third party reviews and not the 'paid for' or 'advertorial' reviews.
David Cartwright of Techworld puts up.time to the challenge, "up.time 4 is a cross-platform, client-server server monitoring product. The vendor, uptime software, labels it as: 'Enterprise monitoring and planning software that just works', so we decided to see if its claim was true."
The answer is nothing short of surprising, given the empty promises of many vendors in this industry. Cartwright explains his findings, "up.time is, frankly, superb. It's exactly what a network manager wants, it has a vast set of capabilities and yet even a relative beginner could use it."
In conclusion, Cartwright writes:
"Pros: Ridiculously easy to use, vast range of platforms supported, addresses all the monitoring, reporting and alerting needs of the average system manager.
Cons: There aren't any.
Buying advice: If you want a piece of software to monitor your servers and the services they run, don't bother looking at any alternatives: buy this one."
