For large enterprises, monitoring of their on-premise infrastructure is a key requirement. On-premise monitoring allows you to monitor assets that are internal to your organization. With on-premise monitoring you can look at the overall health status of your infrastructure hardware and applications running on them. On-Premise monitoring provides higher reliability and uptime guarantee of your infrastructure assets. There is less downtime of your assets and hence higher business continuity and productivity.
Benefits of On Premise Monitoring :
- Monitoring Framework Ownership
- Increased Security
- Customization as Per Business Needs
On-Premise Servers and Systems Monitoring :
On-Premise Server Monitoring provides insights into the reliability of the server hardware such as Uptime, CPU, Memory and Storage. Server monitoring is an essential tool in determining functional and performance failures in the infrastructure assets.
On-Premise Database Monitoring :
Database monitoring on a proactive basis is necessary to ensure that databases are available for supporting business processes and functions. Database monitoring also provides performance analysis and trends which in turn can be used for fine tuning the database architecture and queries, thereby optimizing the database for your business requirements.
On-Premise Network Monitoring :
On-Premise Network availability and network performance are two critical parameters that determine the successful utilization of any network – be it a LAN, MAN or WAN network. Disruptions in the network affect business productivity adversely and can bring regular operations to a standstill. Network monitoring provides pro-active information about network performance bottlenecks and source of network disruption.
On-Premise Storage Monitoring :
A reliable storage solution in your network ensures anytime availability of business critical data. Storage monitoring for SAN, NAS and RAID storage devices ensures that your storage solution are performing at the highest levels. Storage monitoring reduces downtime of storage devices and hence improves availability of business data.
On-Premise Applications Monitoring :
Applications Monitoring provides insight into resource usage, application availability and critical process usage for different Windows, Linux and other open source operating systems based applications. Applications Monitoring is essential for mission critical applications that cannot afford to have even a few minutes of downtime. With Application Monitoring, you can prevent application failures before they occur and ensure smooth operations.
Cloud Monitoring :
Cloud Monitoring for any cloud infrastructure such as Amazon or Rackspace gives information about resource utilization and performance in the cloud. While cloud infrastructure is expected to have higher reliability than on-premise infrastructure, quite often resource utilization and performance metrics are not well understood in the cloud. Cloud monitoring provides insight into exact resource usage and performance metrics that can be used for optimizing the cloud infrastructure.
Virtual Infrastructure Monitoring :
Virtual Infrastructure based on common hypervisors such as ESX, Xen or Hyper-V provides flexibility to the infrastructure deployment and provides increased reliability against hardware failures. Monitoring virtual machines and related infrastructure gives information around resource usage such as memory, processor and storage.
Understanding Productivity Bottlenecks :
One of the primary goals of monitoring is to proactively identify performance bottlenecks throughout your infrastructure. Using network monitoring, you will know why your network seems to be running slow. With database monitoring, you can fine tune the database and optimize for your business needs. Applications monitoring allows you to predict failures in mission critical applications. Storage monitoring tells you when a storage device needs to be upgraded. Monitoring improves productivity for your entire IT assets.
Escalation and Remediation :
In addition to identifying productivity bottlenecks, the monitoring solutions also provides alerts and notifications to business owners. If need, issues are escalated to business owners on a priority basis such that remediation can be done immediately. Business owners can also use automated remediation procedures to expedite resolution and thereby help maintain better business continuity.
