Microsoft Gold Partner Infront Delivers BridgeWays Cross-Platform System Center Solutions in North America

New BridgeWays partner brings training and consulting expertise to centralized cross platform monitoring of business critical applications on Windows, Linux, and Unix.

New York, NY, October 29, 2009 --( BridgeWays, a division of Xandros Inc., today announced an agreement with Infront Consulting Group to deliver cross-platform management packs, training, and consulting services to Microsoft Systems Center customers in North America with mixed software and hardware environments.

Infront, a Microsoft Gold Partner, will employ BridgeWays management packs to extend single-console System Center management to VMware ESX, Oracle Database, MySQL, Postgres, IBM DB2, JBoss, IBM WebSphere, Tomcat, Oracle WebLogic, Apache HTTP, BlackBerry Enterprise Server, Sendmail, and Postfix servers on Windows, Linux, and Unix platforms. Infront will also provide comprehensive training and support for BridgeWays solutions.

“BridgeWays management packs enable us to extend our unified support and training for our many System Center customers running critical open source and commercial services on Windows, Linux, and Unix,” said Rory McCaw, a Principal Consultant and Operations Manager MVP at Infront. “Our initial trials of BridgeWays Management Packs really impressed us with the depth and relevance of the information they deliver, and their ability to point System Center Operations Managers administrators to a clear remedial path. This will enable our customers to focus on BridgeWays implementation and configuration, without getting bogged down interpreting the overwhelming volume of often irrelevant alerts that they experience with other systems.”

“The management of multiple systems is a complex undertaking with variations and nuances from organization to organization, and the practical knowledge that Infront brings to bear will be invaluable to the success of our BridgeWays program,” said Andreas Typaldos, CEO of Xandros. “As a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner with deep expertise in the full spectrum of Operations Manager 2007 implementation and training, Infront delivers the practical experience users need to fully realize the potential savings and efficiencies of cross-platform consolidation.”
