COLUMBIA, Md., July 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Circonus, the leading-edge, cloud-ready SaaS performance monitoring solution today announced the availability of host-based pricing. The new pricing structure is more cost-effective and allows for easier expenditure planning with newly implemented, choose-and-use service tiers. At the same time, Circonus has made domestic U.S. and Canadian SMS alerts free for clients, so that they can receive one, simple bill each month.
These pricing changes come on the heels of numerous product enhancements in recent months, including:
Configurable Dashboards—clients now have a central area from which both IT and business users can get unprecedented visibility into their complete enterprise. These dashboards can be modified to suit the preferences of the user.
Data Overlays—Now users can easily look at how today's data compares to that of yesterday, last week or last year—and run statistical regressions to plan for the future.
Native Windows Network Agent—Users can pull all of the metrics they can dream up from their Microsoft environment.
Logarithmic Graph Axes—Users can set Y Axes to Linear or LogbaseX.
Collectd Support—for customers using Network Agents
Pre-defined PostgreSQL—queries that can be customized to suit users' needs
Circonus believes in being highly responsive to client needs, delivering these and other enhancements based upon demand from clients at the forefront of their industries. "You spoke and we listened," said Theo Schlossnagle, founder of Circonus.
Organizations today are increasingly dependent upon distributed IT, cloud-computing, virtualization and SaaS technologies; and must monitor the performance of applications and infrastructure for layered technologies, interrelated and co-dependent elements and multiple locations. At the same time, finance, marketing and other business divisions are becoming more aware of how IT affects the health of their units. There is an information gap between IT and business, because of the lack of adequate integration between disparate tools. Total cost-of-ownership can sky-rocket when businesses attempt to tie everything together, and management and updating of various tools becomes cumbersome as the business, IT and network environment evolve.
Circonus gives organizations a cohesive view of how IT affects business. It fills the gap between business and IT by translating, monitoring and trending data for business leaders into a business intelligence system capable of graphing, trending and reporting, as well as performing fault detection and alerting.
