Datacenters have become central in supporting the daily activities of everybody, from individuals to large businesses. Guarantying a reliable delivery of a huge stream of data to people and organizations worldwide cannot go without making sure that every layer of the servers and applications on which everyday operations rely on are constantly and flawlessly operational. Monitoring datacenters health and performance is therefore no longer an option but a necessity.
The solution that needs to be implemented in your datacenter depends largely on your monitoring strategy. You can rely on a passive monitoring solution based on analyzing historical log data and therefore relying on the performance and health from past events or go with an active solution that can detect performance issues before they affect your business-critical
devices and applications.
Watch this short video where Christopher Pugh explains the differences, benefits and disadvantages of both solutions.
