IBM said Tuesday Tivoli Live Monitoring Services, a Big Blue cloud computer offering designed to better monitor infrastructure, is now available.

The Tivoli effort will reside on Big Blue's cloud platform. Tivoli Live Monitoring will monitor the health of data resources, operating systems, virtualized services and all software.

Tivoli Monitoring Services will ping IT managers before outages become big problems. IBM can also automate analysis and corrective measures so a system can heal itself under certain conditions. In a nutshell, IBM is looking to monitoring as a service.

Features include:

  • The service will support monitoring of up to 500 resources;
  • Instances of Tivoli Monitoring Services will be dedicated and preconfigured;
  • Monitoring will be agent-less, distributed and offer historical reporting;
  • Supported operating systems include Linux, AIX, HP-UX and Microsoft Windows;
  • There's a monthly charge and an on-boarding fee, but no software licensing.

IBM has been actively bolstering its Tivoli cloud portfolio. Earlier this month IBM took Tivoli to Amazon Web Services. In November, IBM previewed Tivoli as a service for the mid-market. Red Monk's Michael Cote also has an analysis worth a read.
