Private & Public Cloud Monitoring
Manage Dynamic Resources—Private Clouds, Public Clouds, and Hybrids of Both—in Real Time
In an IT world increasingly lived in the cloud, ScienceLogic’s monitoring and management capabilities span physical, virtual, and cloud-based infrastructure, both public and private, seamlessly, regardless of location. For the cloud service provider needing to manage the granularity of individualized customer accounts or the enterprise utilizing both public and private cloud services, ScienceLogic’s “hyper cloud” capabilities give you the “instant,” “intelligent,” and “integrated” monitoring and management capabilities you need in a single multi-tenant solution. Within the same console, ScienceLogic provides clear views into all system resources, whether in public, private, or hybrid cloud environments.
Integration with cloud provider APIs allows you to monitor your SaaS applications, perform Web content checks, and monitor the performance and availability of important Web applications hosted on the public cloud. You can also deploy a ScienceLogic virtual collector within your cloud security zone for more detailed application metrics. A single platform equipped with trouble ticketing, in-depth dashboards, and reporting capabilities manages all your IT assets independent of location or type. For IaaS, ScienceLogic uses the public cloud providers’ native APIs for real-time views of performance and resources data through dashboards from cloud service providers, such as Amazon Web Services, Cloudkick, Rackspace, GoGrid, Terremark. Reporting capabilities include cloud-computing cost estimates to help you stay on budget.
With automated provisioning and secure customer access in a highly resilient and scalable design, ScienceLogic’s public and private cloud monitoring software monitors all your infrastructure resources simultaneously, including SaaS, multi-tiered services, and virtualized and physical elements in public, private, or hybrid cloud environments.
