Microsoft made its first official acquisition announcement of 2010 on October 6, when company officials said they had bought long-time Microsoft partner and application-performance-monitoring vendor AviCode, a Baltimore-based private company recognized as a leader in .NET app performance monitoring. AVIcode will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Microsoft, with the software being delivered through System Center product family.
"AVIcode has developed solutions that deliver these enhanced scenarios--all integrated with SCOM. We've been using AVIcode solution in conjunction with Operations Manager in our datacenters on services such as XBOX Live for a number of years," stated Brad.
