Stadtwerke Speyer GmbH is a utility provider based in the town of Speyer, just outside Heidelberg. With over 30,000 customers and 250 staff, the company has always maintained a large, complex IT infrastructure to support the delivery of gas, electricity and water within the Rhineland-Palatinate region.
Since 1971, Stadtwerke Schwäbisch Hall has been trading as a limited liability company with the sole shareholder being the city of Schwäbisch Hall. The community owned power company provides electricity, natural gas, heat and water for the city and adjacent communities. Looking for a scalable monitoring solution to monitor their entire IT infrastructure Stadtwerke Schwäbisch Hall tried out Nagios, the free version of Opsview and Icinga. However, none of these tools could completely fulfil their requirement profile.
