Why Google Cloud monitoring is important

With Google Cloud monitoring, you can get a comprehensive view of your applications, virtual environment, and storage on Google Cloud to optimize costs, gain actionable insights, improve performance & ensure security.


Optimize costs & save money

Monitor your cloud footprint and keep track of your cloud resource usage to optimize costs. If monitoring shows, for example, that your Google Cloud virtual servers run at full capacity only during business hours, you can provide for more resources during that time but reduce them to a minimum in off-hours and thus save a lot of money.

Improve cloud application performance

Always know how your Google Cloud-based applications are performing. Find out if they’re working optimally or if there are latency issues that need your attention. Improve performance, for example, by adding more resources – and if this no longer makes a difference, you can take a closer look at historical data logs and find out where there might be more optimization potential.

Increase cloud infrastructure security

Google Cloud monitoring can help you keep a close eye on your applications, firewall logs, gateways, APIs, and more so that you can stay on top of DDoS attacks, attempts of malicious access, and anomalies, and thus strengthen the security of your cloud infrastructure. What’s more: by analyzing data that leaves the network, you can protect yourself from data loss and minimize the aftermath of a potential data breach.

Make cloud management easy

As cloud-based infrastructures expand, effectively managing them does not only take a lot of time, but also gets more and more complex. With Google Cloud monitoring, you usually benefit from visualization options like structured dashboards and graphs as well as comprehensive alerting that makes managing your cloud environment easier and simpler.


3 reasons why PRTG is the Google Cloud monitoring tool of your choice

Custom thresholds & alerting

Define custom warning and error thresholds in PRTG that suit your Google Cloud infrastructure monitoring needs best. As soon as collected metrics exceed or fall below a defined threshold, PRTG not only alerts you visually using a clear traffic lights system but also sends you custom notifications using, for example, SMS, email, or push notification.

Great visualization options

PRTG offers various visualization options such as charts, graphs, network maps, or dashboards. This way, you always have all important monitoring data on hand, including the availability of the Google Cloud Platform stack and resource usage. What’s more: with our easy-to-use drag-and-drop map editor, you can easily create your own dashboards from scratch.

Cost-effective pricing

Google offers native monitoring capabilities that can, however, be tricky to set up and tend to get pricey as you start to scale. In comparison, our PRTG Google Cloud monitoring solution is not just cost effective but also very easy to set up and use. You can also choose between different user interfaces, for example, smartphone apps for monitoring on the go – at no extra cost.


PRTG makes your job easier

Our monitoring software frees you to focus on other tasks by promptly notifying you of potential issues.
