GSX Releases New Monitor & Analyzer

Latest v10 release extends consolidated reach to Lotus Notes Traveler, IBM Quickr, IBM Sametime 8.5, Microsoft Exchange 2010

GSX Solutions (www.gsx.com), a provider of proactive, consolidated monitoring, reporting of enterprise messaging and collaboration environments, including Lotus Notes, Microsoft Exchange, and Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES), has announced the general availability of the GSX Monitor & Analyzer v10. The new release comes with expanded features, plus support for Lotus Traveler, IBM Quickr, IBM Sametime 8.5, Microsoft Exchange 2010, and Microsoft SharePoint servers. The v10 release provides a new modular install for selected server types and components, a revamped user interface, simplified server settings, and new reports to track mail forwarding.

"The Flex-based GSX Analyzer has been improved again, permitting more customization on reports.  For those that don't know, Analyzer will take all the statistics from Monitor, output them on a very pretty, flexible  web-based UI, or email you statistics in a customizable PDF on a set  schedule.  If you are an administrator, you want this," commented Paul Mooney, Senior Technical Architect and Lotus Specialist.

"Our tests showed GSX Monitor v10 to be the perfect solution for proactive monitoring in the cloud," said Olivier Constant of Darest. "If all of your messaging and collaboration services are in the cloud, there is no other way to know of a problem until it occurs - with GSX v10 you will know it beforehand. When there are issues with security and visibility, that's a perfect situation for v10. Even if your servers are outside the firewall, you'll know the exact status of every server in the cloud."

"GSX v10 enabled our team to take proactive, real-time control of our 24 Blackberry, Domino, and Traveler servers with 3,225 users," said Sander Zwart, Managing Consultant at ilionx ICS. "It is very easy to set up, and gives us a complete overview of all our customers in a single dashboard. We just have to configure it once, and then service level reports are automatically delivered to customer mailboxes each month."

"GSX Monitor & Analyzer is already the most widely used consolidated management tool for mixed collaboration infrastructures. It could oversee environments such as Microsoft Exchange 2007, Lotus Domino and Blackberry Enterprise Server," said Antoine Leboyer, CEO of GSX. "This new version extends our capabilities to modern collaboration environments as we add new platforms which are the basis for modern collaboration platforms: Microsoft Exchange 2010 and Microsoft SharePoint as well as Lotus Notes Traveller, IBM Quickr and IBM Sametime 8.5. All its features were driven by close involvement with our customers and partners base worldwide."

New GSX v10 Monitoring support includes:

  • IBM Traveler service availability, alerts, and device synchronization
  • IBM Quickr service availability, tracking, authentication and place monitoring
  • IBM Sametime 8.5 services, meetings, and DB2 and Websphere components
  • Microsoft SharePoint availability, usage, services, sites, users, and synchronization
  • Microsoft Exchange 2010 DAG & DB store availability and performance, and CAS availability
  • BES 5 High Availability failover & secondary server alerts, and manual failback reminders
