AdventNet Announces Major Release of its Web NMS MSP Edition Designed to Enhance Business Value for Managed Services Providers and Enterprises

Pleasanton, CA, June 14, 2001- AdventNet, Inc., the leading systems and network management solutions provider, today announced a major release of its pioneering Web NMS MSP Edition, the Managed Services Delivery PlatformTM, with a vastly expanded set of features designed to meet the needs of Managed Services Providers (MSPs) and enterprises.

The AdventNet Web NMS MSP Edition is a path-breaking software product specifically built to facilitate managed services. It is a scalable, high performance solution to Customer Network and Service Management. It uses a multi-tier architecture, providing for distribution of processing as needed. This allows a service provider to start small, and scale the system as the number of customers, devices and applications to be managed grows. The data collected is stored in a central relational database, with customer segmentation, allowing powerful and flexible reporting on the customer's data. Multiple databases including Oracle, MS SQL, DB2 and MySQL are supported.

"With the emergence of e-business, it has become critical to ensure availability of applications across supplier, partner and customer boundaries. In addition, with the increasing trend towards IT outsourcing, there is a new breed of companies emerging who are in the process of revolutionizing IT systems management by offering managed services. The managed services model fundamentally assumes that management has to cross network and administrative domains as well as geographically distributed resources, and focus on ensuring end-to-end availability of critical IT systems", said Dr. Sridhar Vembu, CEO of AdventNet.

Some of the powerful features in the new release include a Java client which facilitates a rich GUI environment, a very intuitive network-centric interface for user navigation, a failover strategy for the backend servers and the ability to monitor additional resources such as MS Exchange servers and Oracle servers. The new release is thus optimized for ease of use, reliability and managing an expanded set of services.

"For the MSPs to succeed, delivering on Service Level Agreements is critical. With AdventNet?s clear focus on delivering business value to our customers, we have optimized the product to enable MSPs to effectively manage and deliver on SLAs", said Vembu.
