Better Management for Small Business IT

Remote monitoring and managed services software vendor Level Platform has launched its Managed Workplace software for HP's StorageWorks X500 Data Vault Series.

The product allows small businesses with between 10 and 100 computers to manage their IT environment more easily.

The company says that IT environments have become increasingly complex due to rising security threats, unified communications and the introduction of cloud computing.

Tom Joyce, the marketing vice president for HP's StorageWorks division, said: "The HP StorageWorks X500 Data Vault and Level Platforms software provide them with cost-efficient solutions to backup critical data ensuring their systems are there when they need them."

Solutions providers will be able to provide remote monitoring of IT environments for small business clients, including their desktop PCs, laptops and printers, ensuring that every system is running correctly.

HP claims that one in every six small businesses experience downtime each year, resulting in breakdown of operations and increasing maintenance costs.
