Perth, Western Australia (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
On Thursday 21st of February 2013, Pablo Rodriguez Pina, co-founder and co-director of the Perth (Western Australia) based software development company announced the company will be defaulting to AlwaysUp to manage the running of standard Microsoft Windows Applications as Windows 2008 Server Services.
Microsoft Windows applications that are not designed to be run as a windows service are sometimes deployed to server environments such Windows 2008 Server and are expected to run automatically in the background regardless of whether a user is logged in or not.
There are a number of tools both free and commercial that can help in achieving this goal such as NSSM, Microsoft SrvAny.exe and AlwaysUp.
Pablo Rodriguez explained the reasons for choosing AlwaysUp: “We needed to sync the contents of a Google Drive account on a Windows 2008 Server Folder, google drive sync clients such as the official Google Drive Client, InSync or SyncDocs are designed to have desktop interaction and to run only when a user is logged in. With AlwaysUp, we can run any of these applications as a windows 2008 Server Service.”
AlwaysUp provides a number of features that facilitate the installation and maintenance of the installed services such as:
- Being able to run the applications in the current session or different sessions
- Automatically restart the applications
- Report on applications memory and CPU usage
- Monitor the state of the applications from a different machine through a web browser
- Schedule daily application activity reports by email
- Send event notification emails such as a given application having to be restarted.
