Companies that have invested in multi-cloud deployments can now comprehensively view the health, performance, usage and spend of all public cloud investments, including Google Cloud Platform (GCP), in a single view using LogicMonitor’s enhanced LM Cloud solution.
LogicMonitor, the leading SaaS-based performance monitoring platform for enterprise IT and Managed Service Providers, just launched expanded capabilities to LM Cloud to support Google Cloud Platform. GCP joins Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure as cloud platform technologies supported by LogicMonitor’s hybrid monitoring platform.
“Enterprise workloads are moving to the cloud, and more than half now use more than one type of public cloud service. Using multiple cloud providers can significantly decrease risk and costs while increasing security and autonomy,” said Steve Francis, Founder and Chief Evangelist at LogicMonitor. “Evolving our multi-cloud monitoring to include GCP gives companies the single-pane-of-glass view that enables them to optimize technical performance and financial management of their cloud resources.”
Multi-Cloud Deployments Demand a Tailored Market Solution
“LogicMonitor developed LM Cloud in 2018 to help customers with data in multiple clouds. Previously, these users were forced to monitor each of their cloud environments individually or pick a monitoring tool with limited multi-cloud support,” stated Sarah Terry, Senior Product Manager.
“The need for a unified view across resources and services increases in multi-cloud environments. LM Cloud’s unified view with comprehensive cloud performance and availability monitoring eliminates downtime for multi-cloud deployments.”
The Technology Behind LM Cloud
The difference in cloud implementations goes beyond physical infrastructure components as cloud providers vary in characteristics, functionality, pricing models and policies. By supporting the unique needs of each cloud platform, LM Cloud makes managing multi-cloud environments easier:
- Automation: LM Cloud auto-discovers all cloud resources across providers and automatically monitors the data. The platform produces dashboards based on cloud management best practices to visualize the overall health of the cloud environments.
- Comprehensive Metrics: LM Cloud goes beyond simple cloud provider metrics by monitoring application and operating system-level metrics. Pre-configured alert thresholds ensure that meaningful alerts are generated from the onset.
- Optimization: In addition to performance, LM Cloud monitors cloud provider service availability and cloud spend so that users can control costs across multiple cloud providers.
GCP monitoring is available now with all LogicMonitor LM Cloud licenses.
