IBM hoists Tivoli Monitoring onto Amazon cloud

More Big Blue sky

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

After lobbing a large chunk of its database and middleware software on Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) service early this year, IBM has now hoisted its Tivoli Monitoring onto the Amazon cloud.

IBM's Tivoli Monitoring is available on EC2 as an Amazon Machine Image (AMI) running as a virtual computer, Amazon announced today. The software joins a host of IBM business kit already on EC2m, including IBM's DB2 and Informix Dynamic Server relational databases, WebSphere Portal and sMash mashup tools, and Lotus Web Content Management program.

Similar to IBM's previous offerings on EC2, the company will let companies transfer their on-site software license to run the software on the EC2 cloud.

The 32-bit IBM Tivoli Monitoring AMI is running on Linux and available for production use. The AMI comes pre-bundled with both agent-based and agent-less monitoring for Linux and Windows OS environments. The Tivoli agents monitor other AMI's a user is developing or using in production within the Amazon EC2 environment.

IBM is using its usual Processor Value Unit (PVU) utility pricing model for the cloudy software, as laid out here.

Meanwhile, the EC2 cloud continues to accumulate heaps of commercial business software that can be loaded into web slices, including Oracle 11g, MySQL Enterprise, Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise, and Ruby on Rails. ®
