Public School System: Systems and Network Monitoring Infrastructure

Business Need: Enable a public school system to actively monitor the status of their geographically diverse computing infrastructure.

Solution: A large US county school system faced a requirement for comprehensive systems and network monitoring as part of a larger modernization initiative. The client originally planned to go with a branded, expensive commercial solution from a large vendor. During the course of the project, the County decided to re-evaluate their options. Sine Nomine Associates presented Nagios, an open source (and thus, lower-cost) monitoring alternative. The County ultimately decided to forgo the expensive commercial solution in favor of Nagios. Sine Nomine Associates fully designed and implemented the system-wide Nagios monitoring infrastructure, which allows the County to have real time visibility into their hundreds of locations' computing environments.
