Posted by Joey Compeer on Feb 7, 2018 3:27:38 PM

 

I don't have to tell you that modern IT infrastructures are typically very complex with a combination of physical, virtual and cloud components.

On top of that, enterprises invest in a variety of application monitoring tools (e.g. Dynatrace, AppDynamics and New Relic), data lakes (e.g. Splunk and Elastic) and infrastructure monitoring tools (e.g. Nagios and Zabbix) to manage and monitor their services across on-premise and cloud environments.

AIOps for Microsoft Azure Environments

Posted by Wytze Hazenberg on Dec 13, 2017 4:30:07 PM


As you might already know, StackState shines when it comes to providing a unified view of your Information Technology (IT) landscape. The last couple of years we have seen several businesses transition parts of their IT infrastructure to the cloud. However, only parts of the entire IT infrastructure are migrated to the cloud due to various reasons. Obtaining an overview of your entire infrastructure might be
 challenging when dealing with multiple tools, especially when introducing a whole new platform. Microsoft Azure is one cloud provider that is available today. This blog post focuses on leveraging Azure as a topology and telemetry source for StackState.

Posted by Lodewijk Bogaards on Nov 27, 2017 5:09:34 PM

How to monitor NGINX with StackState

Posted by Mark Bakker on Jul 6, 2017 5:14:00 PM

 

In today’s world, we see a growing need to modernize traditional applications from a monolith structure into a more microservices-oriented architecture. Containerization technologies bring a lot of advantages, such as auto-scaling, speeding up the frequency of deployments, etc. However, at the same time, managing the complete IT stack is even more critical. With more than 80 integrations with popular DevOps tools and technologies, StackState enables you to monitor NGINX in context with the rest of your IT stack.

 

Application availability and performance are key for business survival. IT is not “back office” anymore, but an essential part of gaining competitive advantage and a key instrument to neutralize aggressive disruptors in the marketplace.
