Cloud Computing vs Traditional IT Infrastructure: Choosing the Right IT Model for Your Business

In recent years, the adoption of cloud computing has skyrocketed as more and more businesses realize the benefits of this modern IT solution. With its unparalleled reliability, scalability, and cost-effectiveness, cloud computing has become the go-to choice for many organizations. According to recent estimates, around 90% of businesses are already using some form of cloud computing, and this number is only set to rise in the coming years.


Automatically Create Incidents from Alerts with Alert Routing

Shouldn’t your alerts be doing more of the work for you? A noisy channel with every alert from hundreds of monitors and microservices is a chaotic place to actually find the incidents that are impacting your customers. And it still requires a heck of a lot of human intervention. We think it’s time for something better. Today we’re releasing Alert Routing: the next phase of worry-free automation from FireHydrant.


On-Call Management

On-call management is a process for managing after-hours support. Cloud on-call scheduling tools allow self-service and mobile access. Multi-channel communications (email, SMS, phone, mobile push notifications and chat) ensure that the alert gets through. AlertOps sends rich alerts, so the on- Call support engineer has all the information they need to know.


Alert Escalation

An alert escalation can be triggered when the primary support engineer does not respond to or acknowledge an alert within the escalation policy time limit. Keeping managers and stakeholders informed during an incident can help improve confidence in the support team. Once an escalation policy has been established, alert escalations can be automated to ensure consistency.

The result is that networks are now far more capable than ever before, and are able to augment their capabilities by leveraging other technologies to their highest and best use.
