Monitis Gets Religion! Becomes the First Monitoring Dashboard to Convert from Flash to Open-Source HTML5

Press release

San Jose, CA – June 23, 2010 – Monitis, the leading provider of the world’s first Cloud-based network and application monitoring suite, today announced another revolutionary advance in its technology. Monitis will be the first monitoring dashboard provider to switch from Flash to open-source HTML5 when displaying dynamic content in its web-based dashboard.  This switch makes Monitis’ interactive dashboard faster and more universally compatible.

Given increasing concern surrounding the problems with Flash (battery drain, not open-source, and security vulnerabilities), Monitis was already sensitive to the issue. When results from a recent user survey showed that Monitis users want faster-loading, non-flash charts, Monitis realized that the time had come to make the switch.

As a SaaS provider of IT management, Monitis has always been committed to making its interface as fast and user-friendly as possible. The dashboard is instantly deployable, making getting up and running simple. Ajax pop-ups allow users to perform management tasks quickly without loading multiple web pages.  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 jQuery.

Said CEO Hovhannes Avoyan, “Liberating IT manager’s time. That is our single-minded focus. Our move to open-source HTML5 is solely about this. While the move saves our users’ time by loading faster in the short-run, HTML5 will also save them time in the long-run by being open-source and more secure than Flash. That we are the first to move to HTML5, well, that’s just par for the course for us.”

    Great news. As we have banned flash from company computers for security reasons this is a big plus for monitis.

  • We are a software and web development company from Bangalore, India. We use Monitis for keeping track of the websites we maintain. We hope movement to HTML5 will be much more efficient than the flash based charts!!
