My landlord just kicked me out. Let me rephrase that. My landlord just politely asked me to leave his property before my lease is up. Thanks to him, my wife and I have been packing our stuff in preparation of our move. In all honesty, my wife has been doing most of the packing. I asked her to pack up all her belongings and kitchenware and I would do the rest. Somehow, that message got lost and she packed my things too. When I needed to look for my shoes and couldn’t find them, I was upset. I reiterated how I asked her to only pack her stuff but she said I never said her that. Before I knew it, the blame game was in full effect. It was her word versus mine.
These kind of things happen in IT infrastructure management too. When you have more than one tool to monitor your environment and more than one data source for capacity planning, how do you know which one to trust? The justification for IT environments to use a variety of monitoring tools is that their current set of tools cannot provide all the visibility they need. For example, some tools are strictly for network monitoring. Others might go really deep in Windows monitoring but light on everything else. What’s worse is if there is an overlap in the metrics from each tool, so which one should you go with? Different tools will gather metrics in different ways and at different time intervals. One tool might catch a spike while another may not. It is a full time job just to consolidate data and close information gaps to make sense of it all.
Here is where up.time is different. up.time provides unified monitoring for all the silos within an IT infrastructure so you can have a true ‘single pane of glass’. You don’t have to duct tape point tools together to make a homemade Swiss army knife. up.time IS the swiss army knife and provides a unified and comprehensive view. It makes capacity planning a breeze because it provides a single data source so you don’t have to try to make sense all the differing metrics! You can eliminate the blame game (and headaches) in IT when you don’t have multiple tools telling you different things. You don’t have to go to war with the network team arguing whose data is right when you have a standard tool providing a single view of the truth. up.time is the solution that enables you to be the IT superstar.
