SUPPORTED VENDORS AND SYSTEMS:
What does SaaS monitoring involve?
What is an SaaS monitoring tool?
PRTG Hosted Monitor is a so-called SaaS monitoring tool. The complete solution for monitoring infrastructures is offered by Paessler as a service. This allows you to use the monitoring solution PRTG Hosted Monitor as a cloud-based deployment and SaaS service. PRTG Hosted Monitor runs on AWS servers in the region of your choice (including Europe) in the cloud.
Cloud computing: SaaS, IaaS and PaaS
SaaS (Software as a Service) is a term from cloud computing. Alongside IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) and PaaS (Platform as a Service), it is one of the deployment models that are used online and billed on a subscription basis according to demand.
What is Monitoring as a Service (MaaS)?
SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS can be grouped under Monitoring as a Service. Monitoring software such as PRTG Hosted Monitor that is hosted in the cloud is also referred to as an MaaS solution. The MaaS concept ranges from monitoring network performance to systems and applications.
The advantages of PRTG Hosted Monitor
SaaS solutions have many advantages over on-premises software. You can therefore benefit from PRTG Hosted Monitor (the cloud-based monitoring solution) in several ways:
You save costs
To use PRTG Hosted Monitor, you do not have to make any initial investments. Paessler takes care of the hosting. This means that you don't need a dedicated server or a PRTG installation in your network. This not only saves costs: you also don't need any additional floor space for servers in your company. Because you simply access PRTG Hosted Monitor via the web browser.
PRTG Hosted Monitor is ready to use
out of the box
PRTG Hosted Monitor is intuitive and easy to use. Your employees don't need any special expertise. The initial setup is wizard based and done in minutes. Your network is visualized in clear real-time dashboards. Alarm thresholds and custom notifications are quick and easy to configure. All of this reduces administrative overhead. This way, you can concentrate on what's important: monitoring your IT infrastructure.
You have no maintenance effort
You do not have to worry about updates and backups because Paessler takes care of these. As soon as a new software version of PRTG Hosted Monitor is available, your hosted instance is automatically updated to the latest version. This means that you are always using the latest software version, which includes new features and bug fixes. Paessler also performs regular backups to secure your configuration and data for you. This makes maintaining PRTG stress-free, because you don't have to hire an IT employee to do it.
Available around the clock
Paessler ensures that its hosted monitoring solution is highly available. As PRTG Hosted Monitor is hosted on highly available AWS servers, you are not affected by monitoring outages should your own servers fail to function. For you, this not only eliminates the maintenance effort. PRTG is also always up and running and there are no time gaps in your monitoring. This ensures that you don't miss any errors and are able to fix problems in time before systems fail. High availability is especially relevant if you are contractually obligated to high availability rates.
You have full cost control
Choose a pricing plan that works best for your infrastructure size. There are no long-term contracts and no license costs, but flexible subscriptions. The smallest pricing plan covers up to 500 aspects of your devices (for about 50 devices), which means that you can create up to 500 so-called sensors. You can choose from additional plans for up to 1,000, 2,500, 5,000, or 10,000 sensors for integration into your monitoring. This way, you never pay more than necessary.
You can switch to a different pricing plan on a monthly basis if the number of your devices increases or decreases and you therefore need more or fewer sensors. Depending on your preference, you can be billed monthly or annually. In this way, your liquidity is preserved and you remain financially flexible at all times.
You have many customization options
Customize dashboards the way you need them. Dashboards and maps clearly display devices, connections, and their status. Easily create custom dashboards yourself using the drag-and-drop editor, add visual elements (for example sensor status icons, data tables, charts, etc.), and publish them for others to see.
Adjust the alarm function individually according to your needs. Define at which threshold you want to be notified and how. You can even specify the schedule based on which PRTG Hosted Monitor issues an alarm. For example, you can reduce the number of notifications for less urgent errors at night.
Alerts help you identify problems in time so that you can proactively take countermeasures. Otherwise, you may be at risk of lost revenue and financial damage. Choose who should be notified and how from various notification methods.
“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.”
