The Need for Monitoring
Your business has a lot of moving parts. Web Servers are directing customer traffic, Applications are processing orders, and Databases are storing critical information. When each of these parts functions smoothly, your business operates exactly as intended.
That’s the goal anyway. An important part of maintaining a reliable infrastructure requires the detection of issues before they become a problem. A good monitoring solution provides priceless data, logging, and visualization of, not just your individual systems, but your entire infrastructure. A successful monitoring solution allows your business to be proactive instead of simply reactive.
