Businesses’ critical infrastructure systems represent the lifeblood of most organizations – without robust access and use of these technological assets to support important, daily operations, the company risks damage to its reputation and customer relationships – or worse. In this environment, any downtime is simply unacceptable, and executive and IT leaders must ensure that they have the most visibility into their infrastructure performance.
Thankfully, Galileo Performance Explorer has joined forces with Zabbix real-time monitoring to provide ideally paired solutions.
Two schools of thought: Proactive and reactive
When it comes to IT infrastructure, there have been two leading strategies to monitor critical environments:
Proactively, wherein any issues are identified and ideally addressed before they become large-scale, performance robbing problems, or
Reactively, where real-time alerts enable IT teams to confront and tackle issues as they emerge.
Today, businesses must have both kinds of capabilities in place, and there’s no better way to achieve this than with best-in-class technology solutions.
Galileo and Zabbix: The best of both worlds
