CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

It was very good to use in small scale projects. Considering the high end projects with many instances and multi-platform architectures, it is better to test before the application is deployed. I think few of the questions can be general - who are the system users and what size is the application focussing on? How much resources are required? Will the application require any additional services?

Micro Focus SiteScope

HP sitescope is mostly used if we need infrastructure monitoring. And in most companies, we have many servers and need to monitor their health and so Sitescope is a good buy for all such scenarios. It is not very useful when we want to have dashboards and depictions based on the data from Sitescope. We can't index the logs and create regex operations from those logs like we do in other monitoring tools

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • Custom monitors with custom thresholds, timing, polling, and many other configuration options.
  • Custom ways to alert and notify. Of course you have email and text message capabilities, but SiteScope also allows for specific messages and variables within those messages to be sent out so that your alert is data filled and you can know exactly what is going on and why you received that specific alert.
  • Monitor templates for quick and rapid deployment of one's standard set of monitors. Easy ability to "copy" and "paste" monitors so there is no need to re-create from scratch.
  • Scripting. SiteScope also allows for custom scripts to be called from specific alerting triggers. This allows for HUGE and POWERFUL customization and automation through SiteScope. You can easily have scripts that "take action" on a specific alert so you don't have to!!
  • Very easy to use in my opinion. Learning curve is very short and you can master this system fairly quickly for all of the depth of customization that it offers.

Cons

CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

  • Though it is good and easy for developers, it lacks operational activities and monitoring tools.
  • It is easy to deploy WAR on AppFog with its console but sometimes it can lack on the performance and feasibility.

Micro Focus SiteScope

  • Sitescope is particularly used for infrastructure monitoring. Other kinds of monitors cannot be set using HP sitescope.
  • Sitescope cannot have graphs like splunk which is why we have splunk as well which is an additional cost for the company.
  • We can't have a direct regex operations on data inside HP sitescope. We need to have the logs placed as a single log and then do that.

Alternatives Considered

CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

Appfog was one of the requirements of our project since it was the fastest growing PAAS provider. Also it was easy to deploy an application with multiple options to choose for the development environment for our application. It was "ALL in ONE."

Micro Focus SiteScope

SiteScope can be easily deployed. It required less care feeding as it is quite stable. Compared to other products which are agent-based, HP SiteScope can monitor remotely without any issues. We selected HP Sitescope as it was easier to manage compared to the other tools which require more human resources to manage.
