Homestore has selected Cendura Corp., a pioneer of Intelligent Blueprint application management systems, to audit and monitor its multifaceted real estate Web environment, according to a Cendura statement.

The technology that will be used is Cendura’s Cohesion 2.0 Application Management Suite.

Homestore operates the Web site of the National Association of Realtors, the Web site of the National Association of Home Builders and Homestores’ own RentNet and Web sites. The company’s Web environment depends on more than 1,000 servers in a distributed Microsoft environment to support application up-time and availability, according to Cendura.

Marty Frame, Homestore’s SVP of product and technology, said the company previously had dedicated a team of engineers to run scripts weekly on each server to identify and resolve configuration inconsistencies.

“During our growth over the past seven years, we have acquired many different technologies to support our sites. It is our policy to standardize our large environment to serve our market. With Cendura, we now have the confidence in knowing what we have, maintaining standard operational policies and efficiencies, and easily resolving any issues that arise–automatically,” Frame said in a Cendura statement.

Cendura CEO Pavan Nigam said the technology would help Homestore audit and monitor application components and interdependencies to improve the availability and performance of those applications and reduce operating costs.

“Homestore’s pain reflects the pandemic challenges of managing the growing and highly complex application infrastructure on which today’s Internet-based companies rely,” Nigam said.

Mountain View, Calif.-based Cendura’s other customers include VeriSign, LastMinuteTravel and PlanetAsia.
