Holy Moly! Monitis Mobile Converts From Static Images to Open-Source HTML5

San Jose, CA – July 26, 2010 – Having already been the first monitoring dashboard provider to switch from Flash to open-source HTML5, Monitis, the leading provider of the world’s first Cloud-based network and application monitoring suite, today announced another revolutionary advance in its technology. Now Monitis Mobile(available at m.monitis.com) will also switch from static images to HTML5, enabling phones running on iPhone OS, Android, and Symbian to run open-source HTML5-based charts instead of the Google charts as images that Monitis Mobile had previously used.

Given increasing concern surrounding the problems with Flash (battery drain, not open-source, and security vulnerabilities), Monitis was the first monitoring provider to preemptively replace Flash with open-source HTML5 on its core product. Hence, the move to open-source HTML5 on Monitis Mobile was only a matter of time.

With the new open-source HTML5 charts will load much faster and contain more interactive features. These new charts will be based on open-source Flot, a pure Javascript plotting library for iQuery.

Said CEO Hovhannes Avoyan, “We’ve done it again. With the advent of open-source HTML5-based Monitis Mobile, we’ve once more changed the game in the category. No other monitoring company is innovating as quickly as Monitis at the moment. We are indeed the ones to watch.”

  • You can read this before posted annoying statement “..the problems with Flash (battery drain, not open-source, and security vulnerabilities)..”


    I don’t fight against HTML5 , but you should do respect to all flashers around the world .. you know what happen if there’s no Flash ? There will be no Video Streaming etc .. nuff said :)

  • Thank you for the great tool – we´re looking for an new server-uptime tool, think it will be monitis!

  • Does the site degrade to Static images gracefully if HTML5 is not supported? For example IE or Opera 10 on WM 6.5? You should be testing for support of HTML5 and displaying the appropriate format. I applaud the switch, I just want to make sure that something that used to work in all mobile browsers, still does.

  • The datagrids are still rendered using Flash though right? Think you’re jumping the gun just a little on the “imminent” abandonment of Flash for HTML5. Nice that it now works on an iPhone and iPad I suppose, but the real question is why wouldn’t these devices support Flash when other similarly spec’d one’s can…
