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. Where Shakespeare used to say: “To be or not to be,” it is now “disrupt, or be disrupted.”

StackState Top-Ranked by EMA in Full Stack Monitoring Category

Posted by Erik Driehuis on Jul 4, 2017 9:19:10 PM

 

UTRECHT - Jun 27, 2017 - StackState, the world's first Algorithmic IT Operations (AIOps) platform, has been selected by Enterprise Management Associates (EMA) as an "EMA Top Three" vendor in the category for Full Stack Monitoring.

 

StackState earned this industry recognition as part of EMA's new research report on "Ten Priorities for Hybrid Cloud, Containers and DevOps in 2017," authored by Torsten Volk, EMA Managing Research Director. “Enterprise Management Associates research shows that operational complexity, the lack of a unified monitoring solution, and insufficient staff skills are the key bottlenecks of container adoption in 2017. The magic behind StackState is its ability to attack all three bottlenecks by keeping track of every aspect of an application, from the Rack-level all the way up to the application, server and business process layer, even for external services," said Torsten.

Capture your entire IT stack in one data model

Posted by Lodewijk Bogaards on May 24, 2017 6:16:40 PM

On October 16th of 1843 a mathematician called William Rowan Hamilton crossed a bridge in Dublin when all of a sudden he was struck with the solution to a problem he had been working on for many years.
He became so enthusiastic that he cut his famous equation for a new type of number he called a quaternion into the stone of the bridge: "i^2=j^2=k^2=ijk=-1." Quaternions, among other things, make rotating objects through arbitrary orientations in a 3D space possible. We have Hamilton to thank for making it possible to safely land on the moon. In fact we have Hamilton to thank for making our WebGL powered 3D engine work at StackState.
 
At times, the ability to get an insight of such complexity seems to me to require a superhuman amount of genius. Yet I recognize that Hamilton, that day on the bridge, had simply arrived at a critical point after a long and arduous journey. The end of one stage of the journey and the beginning of another. Once given enough background information on what Hamilton was exploring mentally, the equation that marks the completion of that stage of the journey, though still highly impressive, is not beyond human capability.
