CloudStats.me – Easy Server and Website Monitoring from the Cloud
CloudStats is a cloud based server and website monitoring platform that makes it really easy for you to monitor any server or website. The platform supports servers of all types (for example, cloud, vps, dedicated servers) and most operating systems (like Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS and Windows).
While we already posted an article about CloudStats before, since then the platform has been completely re-designed and became a Microsoft BizPark startup. CloudStats is now using Microsoft Azure platform that allows it to perform server and website checks from all 15 global locations that Microsoft Azure has.
Furthermore, CloudStats has attracted government funding that now allows it to quickly expand and quickly add new features to the platform. The flexibility of a rather small team means that if you require some additional features that are not present in the platform CloudStats can develop and add to the system rather easily.
One of the main advantages of the platform – is that you can monitor any servers from one place. For example, if you got several servers at different hosting providers and don’t have an efficient server monitoring platform, CloudStats can collect statistics from all of your servers and notify you if something happens on your network. This ensures that you don’t spend much time monitoring your servers and focus on your projects instead.
