Site24x7 offers a cloud-based all-in-one monitoring solution that includes website, server, network, application performance, and real user monitoring under one roof. Though PRTG pioneers in network monitoring, it trails behind in monitoring the rest. Site24x7 is an inherent SaaS product built on the concrete base of Zoho with the experience and knowledge pool of ManageEngine OpManager. PRTG is on-premises and new to the on-demand era as it is just beta in cloud-based monitoring. We compare the features of Site24x7 with that of PRTG's on-premises'.

Network and server monitoring - Though PRTG holds the market in line for network and server monitoring, the overall package of Site24x7 is pitch-perfect in catering what exactly a customer needs. Besides, Site24x7 has an user-friendly approach.

All-in-one monitoring solution - A simple to use solution that gives a complete view of the performance and availability of your entire IT infrastructure. Be it physical, virtual, or cloud infrastructure, web or mobile, intranet or internet applications, Site24x7 can monitor them all. In a single portal, you get to monitor the availability and performance of your website, server, network, VMs, applications and much more. PRTG is yet to provide full-fledged monitoring of website, application performance, and real user monitoring.

Multiple geographic locations - With over 70+ monitoring locations worldwide, Site24x7 allows you to choose your proximal servers. Monitor URLs over the internet, intranet, and 3G/4G networks and perform synthetic transaction monitoring from various ISP networks and ensure that customers can transact on your website without interruption. PRTG monitors just from where it is installed.

Future-proof service - With a strong cloud base and born from ManageEngine's IT expertise, Site24x7 is future-proof, unlike other on-premises software. While PRTG is just beta, Site24x7 has a stronger foothold in cloud-based monitoring.

No compromise on scalability - Our comprehensive product portfolio is built to support teams and organizations of all sizes. Site24x7 can scale up to 100,000+ servers/websites. This gives no room for compromise on monitoring, even when you add more infrastructure, customers, and businesses. PRTG, on the other hand, restricts to a minimal number of sensors per probe, hence making scalability a question.

Superior Reporting - With Site24x7, you can gather performance data of the monitored resources and generate numerous reports, which can be viewed along a custom-defined hourly, weekly, monthly, or yearly basis. Obtain exhaustive reports, which will assist you to identify the trends over a stipulated period. Though PRTG also provides reports on regular and demanded bases, they are not as full scale as Site24x7's.

Flexible add-ons - Site24x7's licensing model provides flexible add-ons option. You can also purchase multiple units of the add-ons as your need demand and switch between plans if required. With PRTG, you cannot pay organically as you grow. You can pay only in bunches. You pay an annual sum of $6,150 for 2500 sensors, and your next least choice is only at $10,500.00 for 5000 sensors.

Offbeat pricing - What you pay Site24x7 is far lesser than what any other competitor charges. PRTG on-premises charges $1,600 for 500 sensors. On the other hand, Site24x7 charges $449 for 500 monitors. A sensor is the basic monitoring element of PRTG (e.g. the traffic of a switch port) while Site24x7 monitor is a broader term referring to a web application, server etc. PRTG on-demand charges $249 per month for 1000 sensors. We charge $9 per month for five servers/websites, 25 network interfaces and more. So, why wait? Sign up for Site24x7!
