To give you some insight into our bracket match-ups, here is a quick breakdown of each Opsview monitoring solution and why it is in the running to win 'Opsview Madness':

Network Monitoring

Understanding how switches, routers, firewalls and load balancers interact with your business systems is vital when managing dynamic workloads and allocating resources. Opsview's network monitoring software allows you to easily compile data from a variety of devices and applications to give you a complete view of your physical, virtual and cloud network infrastructures in a 'single pane of glass'.

Server Monitoring

Most modern datacenters contain multiple operating systems and the complexity of server layouts continues to increase with the rise of virtualization and the cloud. In order to properly adapt to inevitable changes that will occur within your environment, being able to utilize a single and flexible server monitoring solution becomes even more important.  With native network, virtualization, enterprise application and cloud support, Opsview offers a wide range of coverage for your infrastructure and gets rid of the need to implement several server monitoring tools.  

Cloud Monitoring 

The rising popularity of cloud computing has added new elements into becoming a successful enterprise IT organization. If the cloud is your new home for business-critical applications,  IT admins need the same amount of insight into their cloud-based systems as the rest of their infrastructure. Opsview's cloud monitoring tools and accompanying capabilities coupled with complete coverage for physical and virtual systems delivers a 360° view of your entire infrastructure in real-time. 

SQL Monitoring

It is always beneficial when a monitoring solution can deliver powerful SQL server monitoring without the complexity or expense of proprietary software. Opsview's SQL server monitoring tools have been designed from the ground up to give you valuable insight and reporting on the health of your IT. The free version of our SQL server activity monitor, Opsview Monitor Atom, offers quality performance and is completely customizable. 

You should have all the information you need to select your preferred monitoring capability for the chance to win 'Opsview Madness'. The winner will be selected on Tuesday, so be sure to follow us for updates!
