IBM's Tivoli monitoring applications are now available on Amazon Web Services. The Tivoli move highlights another addition to Amazon's stable of enterprise-class applications available on its platform.

In the last year, Amazon Web Services has done a lot to bolster its enterprise cloud computing credibility by offering a wide range of applications used regularly by IT managers. As cloud competition heats up the portfolio of applications available may be the difference that lands enterprise customers.

IBM Tivoli monitoring is now available as an Amazon virtual machine. In a blog post, Amazon said:

IBM provides self-install scripts for data collection agents, self-help guides and maintains infrastructure for delivery of Tivoli software. Because there is no hardware or software to purchase – and because the hourly price for Tivoli on EC2 includes an IBM license – it’s super easy to get data collection up and running.

Big Blue has made a bevy of applications---IBM DB2, Informix Dynamic Server, WebSphere Portal Server, Lotus Web Content Management, WebSphere sMash and Novell’s SUSE Linux---available on Amazon Web Services.
