GroundWork Partners with Quru to Expand its Unified Monitoring Solutions Business in the UK

London, UK, 18 March 2014 - GroundWork, the leading Unified Monitoring solution for IT operations management, virtualisation and cloud monitoring, today announced a strategic partnership with the open source technology integrator Quru to help expand its presence in the UK market.

Under this partnership, GroundWork will leverage Quru's strong expertise in developing and deploying integrated IT solutions as well as the synergies resulting from their joint partnership with Red Hat, a global open source solutions provider.

"We are really excited about working with GroundWork to help them grow their business in the UK", said Roland Whitehead, CEO at Quru.

"GroundWork's Unified Monitoring technology is fully compatible with our expertise in using open solutions and fills an important slot in our portfolio of system management tools, enabling our customers to optimise systems performance and cut down IT costs. Moreover, our common understanding of Red Hat's technology, which is embedded in GroundWork's unified monitoring platform, will create useful synergies in terms of delivering additional implementation and integration services to our clients", he added.

Traditional approaches for managing complex and heavily virtualised IT environments are often costly and rarely provide in-depth detail and visibility into IT systems and applications. GroundWork's technology offers an effective solution to these challenges by enabling integrated monitoring of all IT environments, including cloud, virtualisation, network, application, server and storage data.

"We see an increased demand for unified monitoring solutions in the UK and the partnership with Quru will enable us to cater to this market and strengthen our footprint in the region. Quru has a proven track record of working with large enterprises to deliver scalable, integrated IT solutions and we believe that their IT expertise perfectly complements our business and technology strengths", said Dave Lilly, CEO at GroundWork.

"We've developed a successful relationship with both GroundWork and Quru over the past four years and are confident that this new partnership will result in great synergies between the two companies. This will enable them to successfully cater to the growing needs for advanced unified monitoring solutions in the UK market", commented Simon Williams, head of Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) EMEA at Red Hat.

GroundWork's Unified Monitoring solutions will be available for UK customers with immediate effect.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
Providing secure, mobile access to sensitive data sets is a critical element in realizing the full potential of cloud computing. However, large data caches remain inaccessible to edge devices for reasons of security, size, format or limited viewing capabilities.
