Cloud Monitoring

Much like local servers, your cloud-based data centre should be monitored to ensure services and applications critical to your enterprise are being delivered in accordance with your SLA. The cloud is often an environment where you pay only for what you use, so it’s best to keep an eye on what you’re using. Usage monitoring and service quality metrics are available from PaaS providers to help you maintain control over your costs, usage and any problems encountered.
