Boundary Launches AWS Monitoring Service
Boundary this week launched a monitoring service that provides organizations with details about their Amazon Web Services (AWS) resources. The Mountain View, California-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) and cloud application monitoring platform company said its new monitoring service, announced at re:Invent 2014 in Las Vegas, enables users to monitor their AWS cloud and hybrid environments.
Boundary’s AWS monitoring service “is a simple and easy-to-use service for collecting, analyzing, graphing and alerting on any and all AWS CloudWatch metrics,” according to Boundary.
The AWS monitoring service features:
- Alerting capabilities
- CloudWatch metrics correlation
- Dashboard sharing capabilities
- Interactive zooming on dashboards
- Standard CloudWatch data retention for 30 days
- The capability to synchronize time control across all dashboard metrics
Boundary said the AWS monitoring service requires no configuration or software and enables users to view all of their application monitoring data in one set of dashboards.
Boundary launches “free forever” promotion
Boundary said it will give any customer who signs up for its AWS monitoring service during re:Invent week up to 10 million CloudWatch metrics points per day, free forever.
“We are thrilled to be chosen to launch our new service at [re:Invent],” Boundary CEO Gary Read wrote in a blog post. “And with our free offer for AWS re:Invent week, we will deliver … amazing value across [customers’] AWS and hybrid application environments. We are excited to offer this as a way to thank the community for its continued support.”
The SaaS and cloud application monitoring platform company also is providing 10 meters at no charge for AWS monitoring service users who want to get data at 1-second intervals or are looking at non-AWS applications or resources.
Boundary said additional meters can be purchased for as little as $8 per month.
