Opsmatic Expands Live-State Monitoring To Larger Enterprises

On-prem and single sign-on provide a single source of truth for large teams

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - June 23, 2015) - Opsmatic Inc., a company with a focus on creating tools to improve the effectiveness of development and operations teams, announced today the expansion of its live-state monitoring service to include Enterprise and On-Premises Editions. Opsmatic officially came out of stealth last month and continues to deliver on the promise of supporting the needs of DevOps teams, whether in the cloud or inside a corporate firewall.

The Opsmatic live-state monitoring service is the only solution that provides a precise, real-time picture of the detailed configuration and changes that affect an enterprise's computing infrastructure. The new offerings include all the features of the Professional Edition (announced last month), with the addition of a single sign-on and dedicated support in the Enterprise and On-Premises Editions. The On-Premises Edition is designed for customers with isolated infrastructure who require an internally deployed solution, while leveraging the same real-time visibility to quickly troubleshoot problems and reduce costly downtime.

Opsmatic services are delivered through a purpose-built, intelligent data platform which enables customers to easily integrate events from other services for greater context (PagerDuty, Nagios, Zabbix), incorporate their own custom event data (deployment events, backups, etc.); and extend their live state host data to include custom configuration and state data from their own services to provide deeper, more complete insight. Alerts can also be posted to Slack, HipChat, DataDog and PagerDuty, to better support team collaboration and communication.

"Our new single sign-on capability gives the entire technical team access to a central source of truth, reducing the number of configuration-related issues while increasing team velocity," said Jim Stoneham, CEO, Opsmatic. "Our customers have said that incident triage that used to take them hours now takes minutes."

Opsmatic live-state monitoring features include:

Real-time insight
The Opsmatic service monitors the state of every host in real-time, providing a current and accurate picture of the configuration, as well as an instantaneous feed of any changes happening to that host. Any variation, or "drift" in configuration across host groups is also immediately visible to enable teams to fix minor issues before they escalate into downtime events, saving hours of detective work and remediation.

Infrastructure search and Assertions
Live-state inventory data can be instantly searched to find vulnerable packages, to identify every version of an open-source package that is deployed, or find hosts that are running a specific service. Specific policies ("Assertions") can be easily defined and run against live-state data to enforce dependencies, verify configuration, or instantly identify potential issues. Customers can also add internal service configuration and other types of data with a simple inject utility to provide deeper service-level checks.

Configuration management monitoring
Deep integrations with popular Configuration Management tools from Chef, Puppet, Ansible, SaltStack, as well as Docker, enable tracking and reporting of automation runs, file integrity monitoring, and detailed visibility into the key host attributes set by each run. In addition, Opsmatic reaches beyond the policies deployed through the CM tool to track the entire host and report on changes made outside automation runs.

Intelligent alerts
Using Assertions and saved searches, Opsmatic gives teams control over alert noise and the fatigue it can cause, enabling them to focus on the changes or conditions that really matter. Any alert can be classified by host or host group, and can be fed into specific chat channels (Slack, HipChat), or emailed to the right person on team to investigate the issue.

Robust Software-as-a-Service
The Professional and Enterprise Editions are delivered as cloud-based services, supporting any cloud infrastructure, datacenter, or hybrid environment across a range of OS platforms. The services are hosted in a hardened data center with SAS 70 Type II and SSAE 16 certifications and 24x7 monitoring.

Availability
Opsmatic Enterprise Edition is sold as a monthly subscription, with billing based on usage: $7 per host, per month, based on the peak number of hosts being monitored each month. The Opsmatic On-Premises Edition is sold as a yearly contract by quote at sales@opsmatic.com.

The company offers an unlimited-use, 30-day free trial of Opsmatic Professional that is available at www.opsmatic.com/signup. No credit card is required for the free trial. General inquiries should be directed to support@opsmatic.com.
