Site24x7, the cloud-based performance monitoring solution for DevOps and IT Operations, has recently announced the introduction of its AI-powered Microsoft Azure monitoring as well as its chatbot integration with Microsoft Teams.
Site24x7 Azure monitoring enables IT teams to manage over 100+ Azure products using Azure Insights API in near real-time thus making it valuable for IT teams to gain actionable alerts, bring down resolution time, and gain visibility into their hybrid clouds. With the introduction of Site24x7 chatbot for Microsoft Teams, DevOps and application owners will be able to get the health status of critical applications in their familiar workplace chat room.
The extensions in the Azure marketplace make it easy for IT teams to get in-depth visibility into processes and services running in Windows and Linux VMs; the APM Insight .NET extension helps in application performance management of .NET applications in addition to Java, PHP and newly launched Node.js.
Many organisations are adopting a hybrid cloud environment, creating the need to monitor a growing mix of both on-premises and multiple cloud infrastructures. The global hybrid cloud market overall, is expected to grow from $44.60 billion in 2018 to $97.64 billion by 2023, according to B2B research company MarketsandMarkets.
“With digital transformation picking pace, DevOps teams are happy embracing public cloud for new workloads, but it comes with a few inevitable challenges such as getting end-to-end visibility, performance degradation and managing user experience of business critical applications,” said Srinivasa Raghavan, product manager, Site24x7.com. “With AI-driven monitoring and IT automation, the issues across private, public and hybrid environments helps IT teams to bring down mean time to repair incidents, thus improving productivity.”
