Why choose Galileo for your IT infrastructure monitoring?

It’s Comprehensive

  • Monitors Your Entire Environment
    Galileo can monitor the configuration, capacity, and performance of a variety of brands of servers, storage, SAN and applications across your entire environment. Other monitoring solutions take a piecemeal approach that leaves gaps where performance issues can hide.
  • Covers Cloud, Hybrid, and On-Site IT Infrastructure
    Galileo provides a picture of the elements of your global IT environment whether on-premise, hybrid or in the cloud.

It's Easy to Use

  • Simple to Learn and Manage
    A patchwork of applications is often used to monitor IT environments. These tools along with their hardware and software create administrative work. Alternatively, enterprise-wide solutions have steep learning curves and are so complicated that it often requires a full-time administrator to manage and maintain them. On the other hand, Galileo is a SaaS solution that provides a unified vision across your whole infrastructure. It’s easier to learn and manage one cohesive tool than multiple tools, and because it’s a cloud solution, there’s no administration.
  • Visually Appealing Dashboard Provides Answers Quickly

  • Access Anytime, Anywhere

  • Tag and Group Technology for Strategic Analysis
    You can use Galileo to tag and group technology assets from any part of your IT environment, thus creating virtual environments. Learn about the requirements and performance, for example, of hardware involved in data and cloud migrations, server consolidations, capacity plans, and mergers, acquisitions, and divestitures.
  • Does Not Slow Down Your Systems
    Because many tools monitor un-selectively, they eat up capacity and slow systems down like a computer chugging through a full virus scan. Galileo works quietly in the background, selectively monitoring what’s most important.

It Provides the Data for Making Sound Decisions

  • Your Crystal Ball for Technology
    Galileo enables you to use pre-set performance thresholds (or create your own) that foretell brewing disasters, empowering you to take action to prevent business disruptions. This way, you never have to fight fires again.
  • Keeps Data For as Long as You Like
    Galileo allows you to keep your data as long as you want to. That’s important because the longer you can keep your data, the better your ability to establish performance thresholds and spot performance trends and aberrations. This enables you to foretell and avert potential disasters.
  • Provides Pure, Granular Data
    You can’t afford to have one or two statistical outliers skew your data, so Galileo provides granular data. With snapshots every five minutes, you’re able to avoid averages that threaten to misrepresent reality.
  • Offers Broad, Deep Analysis
    Many enterprise monitoring solutions go wide, but they don’t go deep. As such, they may enable you to find an issue, but not to dig deeply enough to discover and resolve the root cause. Galileo provides both broad and deep information, exactly what you need to address issues today and plan for the future.
  • Includes a Trending Feature for Easy Forecasts
    Within Galileo, you can select data from any period and apply models contained in the software to create forecasts. Use this tool to project your filesystem usage, CPU utilization and more. Galileo Predictive Analytics Dashboard
