Site24x7 Service Debuts Internal Network Monitor at Interop 2013

May 09, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Site24x7, a cloud infrastructure monitoring service from ManageEngine, announced the launch of the On-Premise Monitor, the new feature that extends Site24x7 to include availability and performance monitoring of websites, web servers, custom portals and other IT resources inside users' private networks.

According to a release, the move takes the convenience and cost-effectiveness of Site24x7's cloud-based monitoring and brings those advantages behind the company firewall.

ManageEngine is demonstrating Site24x7, and exhibiting the rest of its portfolio, in booth 1367 at Interop 2013 being held May 6-10, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The company is also demonstrating major upgrades that were announced for ADSelfService Plus, the IT self-service software; Applications Manager, the on-premise application monitoring solution; and OpManager, the data center and network monitoring software.

"Today's workforce uses both Internet and intranet applications to get work done. Traditional approaches to monitoring these apps, however, just gives companies more work to do, investing in more hardware and software as well as more IT staff to manage it all," said Gibu Mathew, director of product management, Site24x7. "The On-Premise Monitor complements Site24x7's global monitoring network of servers with a software component that users download and install in their internal networks to monitor mission-critical resources along with Internet-facing websites." Highlights of Site24x7 On-Premise Monitor The On-Premise Monitor is stateless, cloud-friendly and light-weight software that is compatible with both Windows and Linux machines. It collects data related to uptime, response time, throughput and other performance metrics and pushes that data to the Site24x7 central server. Users can then view the status of their internal network resources in the Site24x7 web client.

As described by the company, the features include: -Automatic, cloud-friendly updates - On-Premise Monitor automatically initiates one-way, HTTPS connections to Site24x7 servers to update itself. For security, the monitor does not support connections initiated by Site24x7.

-Stateless safety - On-Premise Monitor does not store user data in the locally-deployed software. Instead, data is stored in Site24x7 servers, so users can initiate monitor shut down, uninstall and other processes without fear of losing data.

-Internal resource support - On-Premise Monitor facilitates monitoring of intranet portals, ERP systems, payroll applications, ping network devices, application servers, database servers and a host of other custom applications.

-Multi-channel notifications - On-Premise Monitor can issue instant notifications about downtime or performance issues via SMS/call, email and/or Twitter.

-Global monitoring capabilities - Combined with the On-Premise Monitor, Site24x7 can now monitor users' Internet-facing services from 40+ locations across the world as well as monitor their intranet services. On-Premise Monitor can also be used to monitor Internet and intranet services running on the Amazon cloud.

Site24x7 On-Premise Monitor is immediately available for Site24x7 Enterprise account holders only and is included in the price of their subscription.

ManageEngine delivers real-time IT management tools.
