Cloudkick, a Y Combinator-incubated startup that offers a free server management system to businesses, has hit a few milestones today. The startup is now managing 1,000,000 servers around the world.

Cloudkick provides detailed graphs on the health of your servers, and tools to categorize and keep information about what each server is doing. Cloudkick’s dashboard allows you to easily add or remove servers from Rackspace Cloud, Amazon EC2, Linode, GoGrid, Slicehost, RimuHosting, and VPS.NET and then monitor an unlimited amount of instances. You can see all the servers in one place, and color-code and label each server.

Cloudkick will check whether servers are alive and functioning and then alert you, via email, if servers go down. Cloudkick also provides data on bandwith and other metrics on servers in easy to use graphs and tables, allowing you a visual snapshot of server activity. You can also access servers straight from web and can run commands through your web browser remotely, which is handy when you are trying to manage servers from another computer

The company says that thousands of active users are relying on Cloudkick every day. CloudKick has paying customers (The company introduced a freemium model in January) in 15 different countries, including Airbnb, SimpleGeo, National Instruments and Vimeo.

This is pretty impressive for the bootstrapped company that only launched a year ago. I’d expect big things for CloudKick in the future.
