CloudStatus Opens Up Cloud Performance Metrics

Parascale Raises $11.37 Million For Cloud Storage

At the O’Reilly Velocity conference today, Hyperic will announce and launch their new cloud service monitoring and logging service CloudStatus.com. CloudStatus is a free and publicly available website that allows developers and users of cloud services such as Amazon S3 and EC2 to monitor the performance and uptime (or downtime) of services. Initially five services from Amazon will be monitored, such as the S3 storage service, the EC2 computing service, SimpleDB and payments.

Hyperic are well known and established as developers and providers of an enterprise server monitoring solution used by companies such as CNet, Mosso, Hi5, Microsoft and others. Their monitoring systems are used in co-location centers to monitor, manage and report on performance issues. Hyperic have used the same technology foundation to develop the monitoring that powers CloudStatus.com.

Hyperic plan to support numerous web services in the future, such as Salesforce.com, the Google App Engine and Mosso. Currently those services usually publish simple feedback to users, such as a simple available/unavailable status signal or a simple report (such as the Amazon status page). CloudStatus digs a lot deeper and measures detailed performance metrics such as throughput performance, response times and overall availability for periods of up to a few months.

For application developers or designers looking to use one of these web services, CloudStatus would be an invaluable tool as part of any evaluation in selecting the right cloud platform to use. We have previously reported on Techcrunch many occasions where CloudServices such as S3 or App Engine have been unavailable, as the repurcussions for developers and applications using the services can often be severe.

    Hopefully they know they need to get permission to do this for Salesforce. From section 2 of the SFDC Terms of Service:

    “In addition, you may not access the Service for purposes of monitoring its availability, performance or functionality, or for any other benchmarking or competitive purposes.”

    botchagalupe,

    First you learn how fix your copy-paste error. Were you in so hurry to post your link here and in so many other places (to create hype of your own). I bet you were eager to earn few extra bucks with google ads. What crap are you talking about on your blog?

    To me this seems like there is a huge potential here. This is just a beta and it shows lot of promise. Amazon fix you SQS and SimpleDB, it clearly shows its unusable. SimpleDB and EC2 on the other side seems to be performing very well.

    I am hoping that more vendors will jump to provide such service, cloud is the future. Google and Microsoft have been planning/spending on this since last 5-6 years and they won’t stop until they squeeze every buck out of it.
