By CIOReview | Tuesday, May 13, 2014

ORCHARD PARK, NY: GSX Solutions, a provider of proactive, consolidated monitoring and reporting of enterprise collaboration environments, including Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint, announced the release of GSX Monitor & Analyzer v10.6 which has the ability to track mail availability and performance across hybrid environments, including Exchange 2007 to 2013, Microsoft 365, and IBM Domino.

The new GSX Monitor & Analyzer feature enables administrators to track availability and performance during migrations from earlier versions of Exchange, from Exchange to Office 365, or Domino to Exchange; compare cloud with on-premise performance, compare internal with external routing with or without attachments, check for problems with Exchange online in hybrid cloud environments, check availability and performance of links to BlackBerry environments.

According to Antoine Leboyer, CEO, GSX Solutions, “Cloud is everywhere and our mission is to support our customers with tools that reduce the risk of a migration, giving them a control of what’s happening in their environment, even if hosted in the public cloud. The monitoring of mail routing is key to manage hybrid environments and initiating communications to Exchange 2013 and Office 365.”

The company also released the enhanced GSX Management Pack for SCOM. The enhancements include features when GSX sends a “back-up” alert, the alert will be automatically closed in SCOM dashboard. Administrators will no longer have to check manually, and all alerts visible are always relevant. Alerts are now better sorted in the dashboard, depending on their level of importance (information, warning and critical).

GSX is now seen and managed directly from the SCOM “Active Alert View,” together with other SCOM alerts. Administrators receive only the alerts that matter to their messaging environments. Misleading alerts for uses with multiple mobile devices are prevented.
