Well suited when server monitoring, not well suited for non system administrators. Need to have server knowledge to get full understanding of product.

Pulse is great for people that want a cloud hosted platform for monitoring time series data. You can post as many metrics as often as you want into Pulse. Pulse is also great for basic alerting functionality.
