E-learning helps individuals cut through global boundaries and access world-class education right from their desks and at their own time and pace. Universitas 21 Global is a premier online graduate school that offers globally recognized graduate programs for working professionals and busy executives. For Universitas 21 Global to offer a rich online experience to their students, presently from more than 45 countries, they wanted a network that is reliable to the maximum extent possible.

"Much of our primary business activities happen through the web including student registration, orientation, counseling, and online classes. We are in the business of higher education for busy executives who travel around the world, and hence our uptime is extremely important to us. With students from various time zones across 45 countries accessing our services, we simply cannot afford any unscheduled downtimes as it would surely affect someone in some part of the world," said Mr. Paul Chan, IT Manager at Universitas 21 Global.

Universitas 21 Global chose OpManager after a rigorous evaluation process. "We have hundreds of servers hosted in two state-of-the-art data centers with critical applications running on them. They need to be monitored for CPU, memory utilization, and general failure if any. OpManager automatically discovers all these devices, and consolidates everything we need to know about the health of our data centers in one single dashboard. The GUI is easy to navigate and understand. I am glad to say that OpManager is one of the best operations monitoring software that I have used, relative to the competitive price it has tagged itself with," added Mr. Chan

"OpManager represents a new breed of Enterprise Management solutions from ManageEngine. With exciting new offerings covering the entire IT spectrum from Desktop to the WAN, ManageEngine clearly offers a superior value proposition to IT managers around the world," said Girish Mathrubootham, Product Manager - ManageEngine Enterprise Solutions, AdventNet Inc.
