Monitis Adds Monitoring Locations in Japan

Monitis, the award-winning provider of the world’s first all-in-one monitoring cloudware, today announced the deployment of two new monitoring nodes in Japan.

San Jose, CA, April 24, 2011 --( The monitoring stations are located in Tokyo – safe from the devastation of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Northeastern Japan.

This brings to 15 the total number of Monitis monitoring nodes operating around the world. Monitis’s stations across the U.S., Europe, Asia, Australia and Central America monitor clients’ key IT processes every 60 seconds – offering fast and frequent checks simultaneously (and alert notifications, if necessary) into the health of servers, networks, applications, events, cloud storage facilities, cloud platforms, websites, transactions and other processes.

“We were very careful in establishing our new monitoring nodes in Japan because we realize how sensitive conditions in the country are now,” said Monitis Founder and CEO Hovhannes Avoyan. “Our primary goal is to expand the services to our customers who are providing applications to their clients in Japan, and as part of that goal, we wanted to ensure that we have enough fault tolerance by running the Japan checkpoint from more than one location.

Elsewhere in Asia, Monitis also has two monitoring checkpoints – in Singapore and China.

“Our frequency of monitoring sets us apart from the competition, which typically only monitors once a minute from a single location, not from all nodes simultaneously,” added Avoyan. “That means you could sign up with a monitoring service that offers 100 nodes, but in reality that only means each one is activated once every 100 minutes. That’s just too much time to let go by before discovering your site traffic or speed is slow in a particular destination.”

With Monitis’s service, customers may choose one-minute monitoring intervals from all its monitoring locations simultaneously – providing a truly global and up-to-the-minute picture of website, server and network performance.

In addition to offering clients a global network of monitoring stations, Monitis also enables IT managers to create their own customized monitoring locations using a small footprint agent.

“As more companies come to rely on comprehensive monitoring and instant notifications of IT problems, Monitis will continue to expand our network of monitoring nodes and keep raising the service bar higher,” added Avoyan. You can try it now for free.
