Awards and recognitions

Site24x7 is a SaaS-based, all-in-one monitoring product that is easy to get started, maintain and monitor. With almost zero cost to get started, Site24x7 is very intuitive and also quick. Site24x7 provides out-of-the-box infrastructure monitoring and digital experience monitoring as a part of its all-in-one portfolio.

On the other hand, Pandora FMS is an installed on-premises software that needs a dedicated OS, database server, and physical resources to get started. Though promoted as an all-in-one platform, Pandora doesn't provide full-blown application performance monitoring, real user monitoring, end-user monitoring, and log management.

Why Choose Site24x7?

  • Fully SaaS

    Site24x7 is fully software-as-a-service-based whereas Pandora FMS's SaaS offering is a hosted MSP product by their partners.

  • Scale as you grow

    Site24x7 can scale with your growing infrastructure. Pricing starts at $9 for 10 servers or websites and provides multiple packs and add-ons to fit your organization's size.

  • Simple pricing

    Site24x7's pricing is simpler because you don't have to worry much about the number of agents you use. Agentless options are also available.

This is what some of our customers have to say:

Site24x7's rich feature set has always surprised us, especially the custom dashboard and reports that we get using Site24x7 has helped us in identifying critical performance issues and address them before our teams are notified. Their friendly assistance during sessions and openness to feature requests makes us feel Site24x7 has been the best choice for all our monitoring requirements.

Chandresh Dedhia

Head – Information Technology, Ascent Wellness And Pharma Solutions Pvt Ltd

Site24x7 AppLogs is so critical for us, and we have so many different things that we need to draw that data into a single pane of glass for. Support from Site24x7 has been impeccable. I know when I submit something, I’ll receive a response. In one instance, I suggested a capability that would help us, spoke with the Site24x7 support team, they agreed, and it became a mainstream feature for all Site24x7 users two weeks later.

Jamie MacFarland

Director of System Administration/Security, Tire Profiles LLC

We use Site24x7 to alert us to slow servers as well as outages of the server. We are aware of server issues before the client is aware of it – which is invaluable to building a strong client relationship. I have not seen anything else that gives us the breadth of monitoring points that we need. Site24x7 gives us great insight.

Rick Pearson

Director at The Ripe Group

Site24x7 gives us deep visibility into critical performance parameters of our resources and helps us stay on top of issues. The all-in-one dashboard gives us one console visibility without the need of shifting to multiple monitoring devices to get complete insights. Ease of use and affordable pricing are factors that impressed me about Site24x7.
