Opsview has grown rapidly within the managed service provider and financial services space; key strategic verticals for Canonical

Opsview, the open source network and application monitoring vendor, today announced it has teamed up with Canonical, the Ubuntu service provider, to help drive the enterprise adoption of Opsview Enterprise with Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Server Edition. Opsview has grown rapidly within the managed service provider and financial services space; key strategic verticals for Canonical.

The global alliance provides access to Opsview from within Canonical's partner repository. Ubuntu Server Edition is now the Linux platform of choice for Opsview Enterprise edition.

John Pugh, Canonical's Software Partner Manager said: "Canonical selects its partners on the basis of complementary capabilities to deliver Linux-based solutions. We are seeing a growing demand for enterprise-grade open source solutions especially within the managed service provider and financial industries, making the appointment of Opsview as an Ubuntu partner a perfect fit for Canonical."

Tom Callway, Marketing Manager at Opsview commented: "Many of our clients are already deploying Opsview on Ubuntu Server Edition. The decision to formalise our relationship with Canonical came after the launch of Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud, a cloud platform for private organisations based on Ubuntu Server Edition and Eucalyptus technology.

"We see the future of enterprise IT monitoring covering physical, virtualised and hybrid cloud environments. Our global alliance with Canonical extends the availability of Opsview to their large existing customer base and offers a powerful monitoring solution for those new customers embracing the Ubuntu Enterprise Cloud.”
