Ping! Monitis Launches a Free, Web-Based Remote Ping

San Jose, CA October 26, 2009 — Monitis, the leading provider of 100% Cloud-based network and systems monitoring solutions, today added a free, web-based remote ping to its suite of services. Monitis’ free, web-based remote ping allows users to check the availability of a server or website from multiple locations worldwide.

Monitis’ new TCP remote ping service will allow web administrators to perform instant availability checks from multiple locations. It will also allow users to embed the ping component into their blog or site.

One of the most useful and reliable network debugging tools, the remote ping can be used to perform several Internet network diagnostic tests: to see if a user can reach a public server, to determine how long it takes to bounce a packet off of another site, and to probe either a domain name or an IP address. It is the best way to uncover network problems.

This announcement comes a week after Monitis announced the addition of free network calculators. Monitis, in addition to its complete, Cloud-based, all-in-one suite of monitoring tools that are sold on a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, is also known for its numerous and popular free tools, including the famous monitoring portal Mon.itor.Us, MonitorSNMP, and Monitis Links-Checker.

Hovhannes Ayovan, Monitis’ Founder and CEO, commented, “At Monitis, we are totally focused on saving IT managers masses of time. It’s what we are all about. Our new free, web-based remote ping is just one in a number of seemingly small new tools that can make a big difference for IT teams when problems pop-up unexpectedly.”
