Here at Opsview, we’re a different kind of software company. So, to know us better, let us tell you a story.
Once upon a time ... Jake only had to worry about IT services delivered on bare-metal servers in his server room. Nobody upstairs understood what he did, they just knew they couldn’t live without him. Jake filled his days racking up servers and kicking ass on Call of Duty. He was secure in his realm. Life was good.
But then one day Jake’s boss hired Emile.
Emile didn’t want to sit in the basement with Jake and his COD buddies. He sat upstairs and spent all his time talking about GitHub, AWS, containers and OpenStack. It wasn’t long before Emile started building new enterprise applications with complex, microservices-based architectures that Jake didn’t fully understand.
Even worse, Emile was deploying these apps into the cloud without Jake’s help. Jake realized something had to be done. He couldn’t keep up with the pace of change Emile and his growing team were placing on the business or understand the risks associated with the new systems they were creating.
In a caffeine induced panic, Jake realized it wasn’t just about racking servers anymore. He had to evolve, too. He looked into how he could increase efficiency in his own datacenter and came upon configuration and management tools that allowed him to deploy new, modern services, rapidly.
Things were getting better, but Jake and Emile now had software spread across multiple locations and different infrastructures. Jake needed a monitoring product that could help him understand how the performance of Emile's new apps impacted staff and customers. He jumped onto Google and started searching. Within seconds Jake found Opsview Monitor.
First released in 2004, Opsview Monitor has evolved into a cloud-scale IT monitoring platform that enables Jake to make faster, smarter decisions to deliver improved service levels and greater DevOps efficiencies.
As Jake's hybrid IT environment has grown, Opsview Monitor has scaled with it. He particularly loves the way it integrates tightly with Service-Now and automatically monitors hosts as that are deployed with Ansible or Puppet. Whenever Jake runs into any problems, he knows he can get expert help from Opsview's always helpful customer support team. More than any other IT vendor, Opsview really seems to care about his success.
Within weeks of deploying Opsview Monitor, Jake and Emile started swapping brewing tips and planning their next trip to DockerCon. Life is different, but it's good again ;)
