Microsoft Gives Nod to VIAcode for Developing AWS Management Pack for Amazon

Company Receives Recognition for its Role in Microsoft Blog and in Trade Press


West Hartford, CT, July 8, 2013... VIAcode Consulting, a rapidly growing software development company that serves major software vendors and Fortune 1000 companies, was recently touted by Microsoft for its role in developing the AWS Management Pack (MP) for Amazon. The MP project, a collaborative effort between Microsoft and Amazon to benefit their joint enterprise customers, was implemented by VIAcode.

The Systems Center Operations Manager (SCOM) Management Pack for Amazon Web Services (AWS) allows organizations running their Microsoft-based workloads at AWS to monitor their AWS resources directly in the Operations Manager console. According to a blog post by Travis Wright at Microsoft, “We enlisted the fantastic development team at VIAcode, a key SI partner to develop the MP for AWS.”

Mr. Wright elaborates that one of the unique features of the SCOM Management Pack is that it is "the first MP of its kind to separate the computer (Operating System) from the AWS Instance (Virtual Machine)."

"VIAcode is delighted to receive Microsoft recognition for our groundbreaking development work on this AWS Management Pack said Peter Buchanan, CEO. “Over the years, we have created a host of Management Packs for Operations Manager that contain templates and self-service features that help IT managers apply proper maintenance and service practices to their products, achieve ITIL and MSF compliance, and create a uniform product experience for all end users."

Management Packs enable hardware and software makers to make their products manageable in real-time inside of Microsoft Systems Center. According to Mr. Wright, the AWS Management Pack illustrates the ability for System Center to extend the "rich monitoring, alerting and reporting foundation to manage any application, from any location in any cloud."
