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?

If you are looking to take your page speed optimization to the next level, Pingdom is a great tool. It is very valuable at helping to identify issues, benchmark your pefromance and check to see the results of your optimization efforts. If you aren't using other uptime alert and server monitoring tools, those features will be very beneficial

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.

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • An easy way to update a mass group of alerts instead of one-by-one edits
  • Our less IT-oriented teams sometimes have a hard time understanding what the alerts mean, but that is a user education issue we should probably address ourselves to better explain purposes of alerts.

Recently added features have made Pingdom less intuitive for our requirements. While Pingdom has a broad offering and remains a good value, it is becoming more than we need. Our customer base is becoming more and more global and Pingdom still lacks Asia-Pacific monitoring, which we will need within a year.

Usability is good. Portability is also good. I am able to place this on various VMs in the DC and use that to help determine what areas to concentrate on. It also helps to find issues prior to a window that I can identify as not being part of the work to be performed and that the customer needs to address.

Have always had very fast, smart, and professional help from the support teams. They have always quickly resolved my issues and helped me get the right sized package of services to meet our current business needs. Overall the support has been some of the best I get from SaaS software.

Alternatives Considered

CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

Primarily because it used to have a good free tier earlier, which it does not anymore. It's simple, and things are available to use. Compared to it's competitors, it does has less features, but that kind of acts in its favor. That adds to the simplicity, and ease of use for a new user.

The detailed reporting and website uptime monitoring is something other tools don't provide. You don't want to get a call from a client or customer that your site is down, or lose sales if it brings in sales to you.You get recommendations on how to enhance the page performance, breakdown of content type for the page, requests by domain, file requests, everything

Return on Investment

CenturyLink Cloud Application Manager

  • Our project was deployed with good efficiency and easily accessible.
  • The platform was much recommeded across the groups and peers.

SolarWinds Pingdom

  • Excellent site monitoring allowing us to take necessary steps instantly to address outage or downtimes, thus keeping steady up time for our website customers
  • Detailed enough to get reasons of outages, which then lets us liaise with 3rd parties if necessary and to even get compensations in the event of missing SLAs
  • Negative: we still need to rely on our technical team to understand the reports from Pingdom
