EMC buys Watch4net with eye on cloud services

After seven years of partnering with Montreal-based Watch4net, EMC this week bought the software company to bolster its IT infrastructure management capabilities.

Watch4net describes its APG software as “a carrier-class performance management application that provides real-time, historical and projected visibility into the performance of the network, data centers and cloud infrastructures.”

EMC resold Watch4net software, and the software is already integrated into the EMC IT Operations Intelligence (ITOI) Suite. ITOI provides availability management, correlation and root-cause analysis for storage, networks and compute resources. Watch4net merges performance metrics from ITOI into custom reports and provides ITOI with alert information when performance thresholds are exceeded.

The acquisition gives EMC greater control over Watch4net’s intellectual property. Watch4net CEO Michel Foix and most of the company’s 70 employees will join EMC as part of its Infrastructure Management Group. EMC considers an expansion of its infrastructure management software a key part of its move to provide cloud services.
