Press Release - Announcing nandView
August 4, 2009 @ 3:00pm

Syracuse, New York - August 4th, 2009: nand.net internet services, a central New York consultancy, proudly announces the initial release of nandView, an open source network and systems monitoring suite.

nandView is a free, multi-platform solution, designed for small to midsize networks. Written from the ground up to be easy to use and easy to configure, administrators will get powerful features without the headaches of other complicated network management systems. There is no need to learn shell scripting, programming or write SQL commands with nandView.

"This is an example of how the recession is encouraging open source development," says program designer Mike DeMaria. After getting laid off from a software development firm, Mike decided that creating an open source project would be a good training experience. "The best part is that overworked IT administrators get an easy to use product without the hassle of seeking purchase approval."

Major product features include:
* Agentless, zero footprint polling that works with virtually any IP enabled system.
* Web interface for configuration and maintenance.
* Protocol verification, which ensures that web, FTP, mail and DNS servers are operating correctly, in addition to TCP and UDP port checks
* Multiuser logins with role based access controls
* Email notifications with support for on-call/off-call time restrictions
* Includes historical reports and statistics, powered by a MySQL database
* Context sensitive online help system with extensive, professionally written documentation
* Source code included, allowing for custom modifications and redistribution

The suite is currently available for download at nandview.com and is officially supported on Linux, FreeBSD, and Microsoft Windows. Also available at nandview.com is a five minute online video demonstration, product documentation and development blog.
