We can’t imagine our lives without our smartphones. Think of a thing you need to do, there is an app for that, as the saying goes. Shopping, groceries, taxis, banking, payments, fun, movies, learning—our lives are now being played out on this little chit of a device!
Here’s a question for IT heads: How about data center infrastructure monitoring?
“Alerts come as SMSs, or on email, which I can access on phone. For the rest, I use my laptop.”
If that’s your answer, it isn’t terribly smart.
No doubt, SMS and email alerts keep you abreast of the latest issues with your infrastructure. But are they enough?
Infrastructure updates now need to be at your fingertips, not as SMSs, but as apps, displaying graphs real-time metrics and trends. It should be as easy as using your favorite chat app. And far more meaningful.
When you sign up with Progression for monitoring of your on-premise infrastructure or any Managed Cloud service from Progression, you get access to Progression Infra-Vu, our monitoring tool. This means browser access to the dashboard, and mobile access to web interface. Most importantly it means you get an app for your mobile (Windows, iOS and Android).
Any IT head or CIO who has used our app has simply been wowed by the immense utility factor this delivers to them. It is the same wow factor many CIOs have experienced when they see the level of detailed monitoring displayed on our NOC’s video wall. The difference is that we have been able to translate that video wall detail and granularity into your mobile screen.
Let’s take a look at why CIOs are impressed by our monitoring capabilities. Not only can you view live data but also see historical data. You can get a trend analysis of various parameters.
You get to view uptime, utilization of resources, data transfer, disk usage activity, sensors activity, and more. Here’s a partial list of what you can see:

Why does Progression give you access to so much detail? Because if your business critical applications are running at our data center, you need to know exactly what is happening. Not a scaled or watered down or pumped up version of what is happening. So while our NOC team sees and acts on alerts, you also get to know the instances as they happen and learn about action being taken. This means you can take the right decisions every time, to ensure availability, while our team executes. In other words, you have total visibility and control on how your availability issues must be handled.
In this day of near total availability requirements, should you settle for anything less?
