Buying Time for IT Managers: Announcing Monitis’ Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework

San Jose, CANovember 24, 2009 – Monitis, the leading provider of affordable, easy-to-use, 100% Cloud-based, network and systems monitoring solutions, today announced a another major release in its crusade to save IT managers’ time – a Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework that enables external and internal monitoring from all Cloud hosting providers.

Until today, Monitis was providing monitoring only for Amazon’s EC2 and S3 services. With the release of its Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework, Monitis can now sync to other Cloud computing providers very quickly – from Rackspace, GoGrid, Softlayer, and more. Monitis’ Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework will automate monitoring in highly dynamic cloud environments, where customers’ servers maybe added and terminated according to the load by management software or manually.

Given this dynamism, setting up end-user experience monitoring can become a tedious, resource intensive and error-prone process. Monitis’ Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework automates the configuration of external monitoring and server monitoring tools every time a new installation is called for – saving IT managers and system administrators around the world enormous time and hassle.

In addition to saving IT managers’ time, Monitis’ Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework gives users the confidence that comes from using a 3rd party tool to monitor Cloud infrastructure in an independent manner.  Even when Cloud computing providers provide some sort of monitoring, there is an inherent conflict of interest – as they are keen to show higher uptime. By providing a customized, independent audit of SLAs (service level agreements), Monitis’ Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework increases the credibility of Cloud computing providers claims, which ultimately benefits both users and the industry, as a whole.

“We are passionate about one thing: saving IT managers’ massive amounts of time. The release of our Universal Cloud Monitoring Framework does just that.” said Monitis’ Founder and CEO, Hovhannes Avoyan. “It is also the first sortie in our move to become the industry standard for monitoring from the Cloud. We are already far, far ahead of the rest of the competition, but watch this space – more exciting things are yet to come!”
