IT Monitoring without headache or cost

By: Centrastage  11-11-2011

There are literally hundreds of IT monitoring tools out there on the market. They all pretty much offer the same headline benefits – proactive monitoring of your environment, so you know what has gone wrong where, or what is about to go wrong. Understandably, this is a good thing if you do IT support. Reduced downtime, increased security etc etc. We won’t bore you with the sales pitch, we’ll take it that you are aware of the benefits of monitoring.

CentraStage monitoring enables you to monitor every device across your IT estate, regardless of location. Even better, you can set CentraStage to apply auto-fixes to common alerts, so stuff gets fixed without you having to lift a finger.

Servers, PCs, laptops, tablets (coming soon!), all are covered, and you don’t need to be Einstein to set it up and get going. Crucially you can gain visibility of your entire IT environment at a cost that doesn’t break the bank, plus if you have a quirky monitoring requirement that sits outside of the norm, you can quickly and easily create your own custom monitors. If you can’t, we’ll do it for you.
