Benefits of Publishing a Service Health Dashboard

If your organization is a solution provider, you understand that downtime can reduce customer confidence and impair your reputation. Hopefully, you can keep downtime to a minimum, but if you do have service outages, it's imperative that you provide your users with access to real-time status updates.

Knowing your own service status is the first step and there are plenty of excellent monitoring tools like munin, statsd, graphite, and services like Pingdom, New Relic and others that can assist with your internal service status tracking.

30suns completes the monitoring and reporting loop by providing your users with a centralized service health dashboard similar to the status pages that many professional platform and service providers publish, e.g., Amazon Web Services, Google Apps and Windows Azure.

Publishing a service heath dashboard will improve communication with your users and can even result in fewer support requests during outages.

30suns hosted service heath dashboard includes additional benefits such as:

  • Full-stack incident reporting, including Current Status, Status History and Scheduled Maintenance
  • Account-level and Service-specific RSS Feeds
  • WordPress plugin makes it easy to publish your dashboard directly from your WordPress site.
  • Simple RESTful API lets you integrate easily with your existing monitoring environment
  • No Risk - enjoy a free trial with no long-term contracts and pay-as-you-go pricing starting at just $7/mo
