IT infrastructure monitoring company Anturis has released the beta version of its next-generation IT infrastructure monitoring and troubleshooting software. The company, which launched last month, was founded on the premise that the current market only offers solutions that are either enterprise grade, complex and prohibitively expensive, or open source and do-it-yourself.
The startup was co-founded by Parallels Founder and Chairman of the Board Serguei Beloussov, who claims that Anturis “breaks the mold” by delivering an IT infrastructure monitoring and troubleshooting service that includes all the features a small or medium-sized business (SMB) needs, with a level of simplicity that is designed for easy set up and use.
“Today small and medium sized businesses are experiencing growing IT complexity, and we all know that if your network or online site is down you’re dead,” Beloussov said in a statement. “However, many SMBs do not have dedicated teams to deal with this growing complexity. Anturis simply offers the solution that doesn’t require an IT department.”
Typically, IT infrastructure monitoring has been offered in two packages: one that is bloated with features and expensive, or one that is open-source with a great need for fine-tuning and customizing, according to Sergey Nevstruev, CEO of Anturis.
“Ultimately both options become costly to businesses either in terms of money or staff time,” Nevstruev said. “Anturis is the long awaited third option. Anturis is for the hundreds of thousands of small to medium sized businesses around the world that need a comprehensive always-on IT infrastructure monitoring solution that is also simple to start-up and manage.”
Anturis touted the following features of its IT infrastructure monitoring and troubleshooting product:
While the company appears to offer a solid service, the company might be better served to focus its sales pitch on the merits of what it offers instead of using arguments that scare off customers from using open source.
Anturis is in beta and currently free for the first six months of use. Anturis customers include SmartNut, MightyCall and Britax.
