LogicMonitor, provider of SaaS-based IT infrastructure monitoring for physical, cloud, and hybrid environments, has partnered with cloud management vendor RightScale Inc. to provide a comprehensive, automated monitoring solution for managed public, private, and multi-cloud/hybrid cloud deployments, spanning their premises-based infrastructure.
RightScale’s automated multi-cloud management gives users the ability to work with any cloud vendors and technologies, such as Rackspace, Amazon EC2, Eucalyptus, Windows Azure or Google Compute Engine. “When you have the technology residing through you RightScale environment, and you also use other environments, you can use LogicMonitor to pull all of that data from all of those technologies and systems that are deployed, and view it through one managed portal through LogicMonitor,” Kevin McGibben, CEO of LogicMonitor, tells 5 Minute Briefing. Users can initiate cloud-ready servers in minutes using pre-configured ServerTemplates, as well as use automated scripts known as RightScripts for fine tuning cloud their cloud servers.
LogicMonitor’s partnership with RightScale provides users with the ability to instantly and automatically add new servers into the LogicMonitor portal as they come online. “When you add a new service or device within your RightScale environment, and you associate it your LogicMonitor, it automatically goes into monitoring, so there’s nothing to configure. It’s a completely automated experience,” explains McGibben. Users can then monitor, manage alerts, and view dashboard and reporting for a new server alongside the entire IT infrastructure in one window.
