    do you have any idea what you are talking about? this post clearly shows you have no idea on infrastructure management and monitoring. articles like this brings down the value of cloud avenue blog. i am sorry.

    I think this is a fair review, and up.time covers server and application monitoring across many platforms (AIX, Solaris, HPUX, Windows, Linux, VMware, Novell, etc). I think your point is that up.time should grow to cover more in the ‘cloud’ and I agree.

    For Cloud, up.time can already fully monitor Amazon EC2 and end-user transactions for SaaS applications. up.time plans to support performance and capacity monitoring of more cloud platforms and applications soon.

    Additionally, up.time just announced a new product that focus on monitoring real-time cloud cost and capacity management in Amazon EC2. Currently uptimeCloud is accepting beta users. http://www.uptimecloud.com
