Site24x7, the cloud infrastructure monitoring service from ManageEngine, has launched 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.
Site24x7 On-Premise Monitor is immediately available for Site24x7 Enterprise account holders only and is included in the price of their subscription.
Company officials said that the move takes the convenience and cost-effectiveness of Site24x7’s cloud-based monitoring and brings those advantages behind the company firewall.
“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, in a statement.
Mathew said that 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.
According to company officials, 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.
On-Premise Monitor also features secure automatic updates, stateless safety, extensive internal resource support, multi-channel notifications and global monitoring capabilities.
Earlier in April, Site24x7 had announced immediate support for WHMCS, the all-in-one billing and client management platform from WHMCS Ltd. The move lets web hosting and domain registration companies, IT services resellers, and MSPs use their existing WHMCS platform to quickly and conveniently resell Site24x7 services to their customers. WHMCS is one of the most popular billing and support solutions used by web hosts, developers and domain registration companies around the world. However, when these companies wanted to add Site24x7 services for resale in their own service portfolios — prior to the WHMCS integration — they had to maintain a separate billing and client management procedure to support the Site24x7 reseller program.
