op5 and City Cloud introducing Monitoring in the Cloud
op5 is the leading provider of monitoring software in Europe. op5 uses Open Source and their monitoring services are now available in the Cloud via City Cloud, a cloud computing service from City Network. By introducing monitoring in a new business model, customers are now able to get professional monitoring in the Cloud which is both more cost-efficient and flexible.
By providing monitoring in the cloud op5 are able to give their existing customers an external solution to monitor their web based services, regardless if they are inside or outside the cloud. This gives the customer the ability to measure and control the user experience in a specific service. City Network also benefits from the introduction of op5 Cloud Monitor. The 500 customers using City Cloud can now create servers with the sole purpose of monitoring their virtual machines directly through the service provided by op5.
- The fact that op5 introduces their external monitoring services in the cloud using City Cloud is a great acknowledgment, not only for City Cloud but also for cloud computing in general. It´s the beginning of a new era where both small and enterprise companies can benefit from the cloud and services within the cloud says Johan Christenson, Chairman at City Cloud.
