Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) automatically monitors key servers and warns you about potential problems with network availability, performance, virus attacks, and security before they disrupt your business. Progent's MOM-based service programs range from simple network monitoring to a 24x7 solution that includes Help Desk services and onsite support.

Microsoft Operations ManagerMicrosoft Operations Manager (MOM) is a next-generation network management software platform that monitors the availability, performance, and security of your information system by proactively identifying problems and trends occurring on key servers across your entire network.

MOM operates by automatically scanning event logs from critical servers, then filtering, consolidating and analyzing these system events based on an extensive built-in knowledge base. When MOM detects a problem or potentially dangerous trend, it can execute special remedial scripts or generate alarms to notify appropriate service personnel. For example, MOM could automatically isolate an infected server to prevent the spread of a detected virus. MOM also produces trend reports so you can track the health of your information network and make sure that problem alerts have been satisfactorily resolved.

A key to MOM's power is its incorporation of standards-based Management Packs for specific application and infrastructure servers. Available from Microsoft as well as from a growing number of third-party vendors, Management Packs contain pre-built processing rules that can react to events, thresholds and alerts monitored by MOM. Management Packs can also give IT staff expert advice on how to handle specific problems by automatically extracting relevant articles from the Microsoft Knowledge Base.

Small businesses in the San Francisco Bay Area and the California Central Valley can now enjoy all the benefits of Microsoft Operations Manager — including maximum network availability, performance and security — without having to become instant experts in this exciting new network management technology. Progent's affordably priced outsourcing service programs based on Microsoft Operations Manager range from simple network monitoring and reporting to a 24x7 solution that includes Help Desk services, application hosting and onsite support.

Key features of Level 3 service include:

  • All the features of Level 2 services

  • Progent's support staff will be equipped to fix problems on-site or remotely without the involvement of your IT staff
