(Nasdaq:ACPW) is utilizing TriActive Systems Manager to optimize management of Active Power’s IT infrastructure. Active Power’s IT team supports over 150 personal computers and servers in a high-growth environment.
“Today’s IT challenges for mid-sized companies demand a viable enterprise in terms of computer and network systems management,” said Glyn Meek, TriActive’s CEO and president. “Active Power wanted an IT solution that could integrate well with current system applications while providing the highest level of support to its infrastructure.”
TriActive delivers full-range enterprise systems management to mid-sized IT organizations using the MSP subscription model. TriActive Systems Manager integrates and automates routine systems management functions for PCs, servers, networks and the web, focusing on simplicity, affordability and rapid benefit.
Active Power first began evaluating the TriActive service in August 2000. Having completed a successful IPO recently, the company needed scalable, stable IT solutions to enable its critical business functions to operate and grow effectively with the corporate expansion.
“Active Power’s infrastructure is rapidly growing and to keep it stable is the ultimate requirement.” Ken Dillman, Active Power’s IT manager adds, “Balancing the IT team between infrastructure issues and allocating resources to develop mission-critical business solutions led to the decision to deploy TriActive System Manager.”
