The growing demand for multi-cloud monitoring and Site24x7's featured releases: 2021

Cloud monitoring recap 2021

Catalyzed by the pandemic, 2020 and 2021 witnessed an exponential growth in digital transformation and cloud computing. According to Forbes, this growth is expected to continue in 2022. Site24x7 added more integrations and features to its cloud monitoring portfolio to keep up with the business trends and enterprise demands.

Let's dive deep into Site24x7's cloud monitoring releases in 2021 and shed some light on what you can expect from us in 2022.

First of all, we would like to announce that Site24x7 is now an AWS Lambda Ready Partner. With this partnership, we will be able to publish blogs on the AWS Partner Network to which we welcome our customers to contribute.

What's new in Site24x7?

You're probably familiar with the Site24x7 Guidance Report, which provides recommendations to optimize costs and manage resource utilization for your AWS services. We now provide over 185 recommendations for all AWS services (called monitors in Site24x7) with over 50 best practices added across more than 10 AWS services in 2021.

On top of this are the instance type recommendations that help you identify a better instance category based on your instance usage. Over 10 instance type recommendations are now available for six AWS services including Amazon EC2, RDS, and MQ.

Another major release is the support for AWS service quotas, which allows you to track your usage and raise requests to update your quota limits right from the Site24x7 console for services like Amazon EC2 and Route53.

With Azure monitoring, we introduced forecasting for Azure Virtual Machines (VMs), App Service, App Service Plan, and SQL Database to predict the future performance of these services. We also released an update with the configuration profiles for Azure.

More emphasis on serverless instances

We released the Lambda Extension general availability version along with AWS that can push logs directly from the Lambda function to your monitoring tool, like Site24x7, so that you don't have to depend on Amazon CloudWatch.
