For example, we had an application slowdown. It looked like the slowdown was storage. However, it was a malformed SQL query that no one realized was pulling data from the storage location that also housed the application. Cloud Insights saved us hours of downtime and frustration. Cloud Insights pinpointed which system was hogging resources. What makes Cloud Insights special is the way it looks at the data collected from the data sources. The insights it provides into the flow of data; sheds new light on how things work in your environment.

I believe Pandora FMS is a solution that adapts to any type of scenario; it's useful for small businesses as well as large organizations. It more than meets the need to have a comprehensive monitoring system capable of sending alerts instantly and consulting historical data, logs, and trends. Additionally, for small businesses, the free version will be more than sufficient in most cases. And for those who do not want to deploy the service on-premise, there is an option for MaaS (Monitoring as a Service).

  • It has a free version with limitations, and another paid version. The commercial one has a quite high cost.

For a while, we were using Zabbix to monitor our Kubernetes applications and microservices on our infrastructure in more than one public cloud platform. Cloud Insights has much better visualized dashboards. In addition, despite such a large number of quality features, it's still priced competitively.

We considered Pandora FMS to be the solution that offered more features at a lower cost. We were particularly interested in the abundance of options available in Pandora FMS's free version and the ability to monitor practically anything in an extremely heterogeneous environment like ours. We also considered Pandora FMS for its management capabilities and the possibilities offered by its web interface.

Once you install the acquisition unit and start collecting data, you can immediately begin using it. It is very self-explanatory and helpful. I could have used Cloud Insights without working with the NetApp Cloud Insights support team. I am glad I engaged them though. They helped me carry Cloud Insights to a new level and it fast-tracked the process that would have taken me time to complete.

  • It is a tool with an appropriate cost that allows to have results in a very limited time.
  • Having a health dashboard and alerts of important business in the company is an important differential with any other monitoring solution on the market.
  • Monitoring can be adjusted to the business, considering service SLAs and adjusting the platform according to the needs of each department of the company.
