Monitoring Website for Uptime
When we develop a website for our organization, we showcase it and present it to the audience as a 24x7 staff. It keeps telling about our organization across the world and continuously round the clock without any stop. Our routine offices have closures in our night time but websites do not unless there is a scheduled maintenance.
Even these downtimes are very significant in case where our website has real mission critical business to do. Under these circumstances, we can have mirroring of the website in geographically different locations and as well monitoring of the website from different places and alert us.
I came across a few monitoring websites and a couple of products that help us in our monitoring mission, which I would like to share with the readers. While I was in my previous organization, working as a module lead for a typical onsite-offshore project, I learnt about a few hosted web applications that help us in monitoring and alerting us.
