Monitis S3 Monitoring Debuts

We at Monitis have another new product to talk about that will make it easier for companies to compute on the cloud.

In August we launched Monitis S3 Monitoring, based on Amazon S3 (Simple Storage Service) monitoring technology. This new ability lets customers independently monitor their S3 usage and storage. And it notifies them when they reach prescribed thresholds.

With Monitis S3 Monitoring, we’re providing customers with greater access and control over the cloud infrastructure.

This all is based on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) approach, and is the latest product line-up in Monitis’s user-friendly, cost-effective systems (Monitis already provides EC2 monitoring). This gives Monitis the ability to show the users graphical displays illustrating the number of objects in each virtual folder or bucket, their total size, and the number of virtual folders, among other things. Users can set notification rules for each metric that we monitor. If you’re a customer, you can choose to be notified by Twitter, instant messaging, SMS, and/or email when any threshold is reached.

“On-demand cloud computing is at high-demand now, and the need for cloud monitoring is urgent,” said Hovhannes Avoyan, CEO of Monitis. “Our mission is to meet this need, and we provide tools that are fast, easy and affordable.”

Users who sign up for Monitis, receive access to Monitis Cloud, which is a web-centric on-demand software that does not require any downloads. This is a service beneficial to IT managers, as well as businesses ranging from small to enterprise-level.

A Little about S3

The S3 is an online storage service offered by Amazon’s Web Services division. Amazon S3 uses a simple web interface to provide unlimited data storage.

S3 was the first web service Amazon offered to the public, first in the U.S. in 2006 and then in Europe in 2007. There are an estimated 52 billion objects stored on Amazon S3 as of March 2009. S3 also includes image and web hosting and a back-up for its storage.
