Monitis: Android OS Smartphone 'Technology of Choice'

“This app is our latest tool in our mission to help busy sysadmins monitor just about any part of their IT infrastructure – anytime and from anywhere,” said Monitis Founder and CEO, Hovhannes Avoyan, according to THN News, referring to its new Android (News - Alert) monitoring application.

“We’re dedicated to making IT pros’ jobs easier in every way, and our new Android monitoring application offers yet a greater level of convenience,” added Avoyan.

For many, Monitis officials say, the Android operating system is becoming the smartphone technology of choice. Citing Nielsen Company figures, in the six months leading up to August 2010, Android was the top platform in the U.S., reflecting 32 percent of new purchases, followed by the iPhone (News - Alert) and the BlackBerry platform, both about 25 percent of new purchases.

Monitis’ new application gives IT managers around the world who are using an Android device “instant access to important data as well as up-to-the-minute reporting from Monitis’s market-leading suite of monitoring tools,” company officials say, explaining that with Monitis’ new, downloadable Android application, “IT managers and system administrators can access their Monitis data, take a snapshot of all recent checks, and see the details of each of the various monitoring tools within the Monitis suite.”

About a year ago, TMCnet reported that Monitis announced a “major upgrade” to its premium service, which included enterprise-grade SNMP network monitoring.

Monitis has long offered a free SNMP monitoring product called MonitorSNMP. But with this upgrade, Monitis integrated all of MonitorSNMP's features plus a host of new and more advanced features into its premium Monitis service.

According to company officials at the time, this new release closed “a major gap in delivering a true, all-in-one monitoring product that unites application performance management with back-end server, Cloud infrastructure, network monitoring, and network management to deliver a consolidated picture of a system's health and performance.”
