What is cloud-based network monitoring?

Every sysadmin needs a reliable network monitoring tool. Traditionally installed on an in-house server, a network monitoring tool monitors every aspect of local and distributed networks, including bandwidth, hardware, and the CPU usage of virtual machines. A cloud-based network monitoring tool, on the other hand, runs in the cloud. As a result, it does not need to be hosted by a dedicated in-house server.

A cloud-based monitoring tool such as PRTG Hosted Monitor boasts all the same features as an in-house tool. What’s more, cloud-based tools are usually more flexible, less expensive, and easier to use.

PRTG Hosted Monitor at a glance:

  • A comprehensive monitoring solution for your entire IT infrastructure, hosted and managed by Paessler
  • Automatic updates and availability checks
  • Quick and easy setup, no special hardware required
  • Monthly or annual subscription based on the number of sensors

“When we evaluate new third-party services for our company, we pay special attention to cloud-compatibility. We want to be as independent as possible from an on-premise infrastructure. We would like to have as few points of failure as possible, which is why PRTG Hosted Monitor was just the right product for us. A departure from technical responsibility, a reduction of costs, focusing on core competencies, vulnerability through 3rd party... just to name a few keywords.”

Dario, Infrastructure Support Engineer at GCA Altium AG

2. What's the difference between PRTG Hosted Monitor and PRTG Network Monitor?

PRTG Hosted Monitor is offered as a service by Paessler and runs in the cloud. You don't need a PRTG core server installation inside your network because we take over the hosting for you.

With PRTG Network Monitor, you integrate the PRTG core server directly into your network. Please see the following table for the most important differences:

3. How does PRTG Hosted Monitor collect data?

With PRTG Hosted Monitor, you can instantly start to monitor all servers, services, or devices that are publicly available via the internet. If you'd like to monitor targets in your LAN that aren't available over the internet, you can install a remote probe in your network. The remote probe collects the monitoring data from your internal network and connects back to your PRTG Hosted Monitor instance in the cloud, where all monitoring data is available in one place. The remote probe monitors all devices from your network using the sensors you have configured. You can connect as many remote probes as you'd like to make multiple LANs available that may be separated by firewalls, or to use packet sniffing on computers in your LAN. For more details on remote probes and an easy installation guide, please refer to the PRTG Manual.

4. How is my monitoring affected when my internet connection is down?

The remote probe continues its monitoring and stores the results. Once the internet connection is re-established, cached data is sent to PRTG Hosted Monitor and written to the database. For details, see the PRTG manual on remote probes. Of course, without an internet connection, you will not be able to reach the user interface of PRTG Hosted Monitor.
