VisualGov, Linxter partner to combine Microsoft UC with cloud computing

Integrates monitoring app with Microsoft Office Communication Server 2007 using Linxter’s in-the-cloud middleware

By CBR Staff Writer

VisualGov and Linxter has entered into a partnership to combine Microsoft’s Office Communications Server (OCS) with a cloud app running on Windows Azure. Utilising Linxter’s in-the-cloud middleware, VisualGov has integrated a monitoring application with Microsoft Office Communication Server 2007, enabling the system to place phone calls or send instant messages.

According to Linxter, the monitoring application, which was developed by Linxter keeps tabs on computer servers and alerts IT staff when certain conditions arise, such as low disk space or a system outage.

The server statuses are registered in the cloud where a VisualGov’s routine uses OCS to automatically notify staff through the proper medium. Text messages are sent for critical problems, while the text-to-speech capability is used to call someone when the problem becomes serious, the company said.

Keith Kabza, CTO of VisualGov Solutions, said “Server monitoring represents just one of many applications that could benefit from combining OCS Presence with instant messaging or traditional phone calls.”

Like Keith, I also look forward to seeing more applications benefit from the combination of Microsoft Office Communication Server and the cloud.”
