RDX's monitoring specialists thoroughly evaluate the vendor's monitoring instrumentation to design and implement a monitoring strategy that meets each customer's unique needs. RDX has customized SolarWinds, an industry-leading monitoring architecture, to monitor most cloud architectures.

Gain Visibility Across All Cloud Platforms

RDX's monitoring architecture has been customized to provide complete visibility into IaaS, DBaaS, multi-cloud and hybrid cloud environments. Each cloud environment requires a unique monitoring implementation to ensure that critical cloud applications are highly available and high performance.

Cloud cost monitoring

Cloud Cost Reduction

One of the top monitoring priorities for all cloud systems is overall resource utilization. Customers are renting their environments from the cloud vendor and those rental fees are based on resource consumption. In addition to monitoring system availability, performance and workload executions, RDX will also monitor cloud resource utilization for cost evaluations.   RDX administrators and monitoring specialists work together to provide ongoing cost reduction recommendations.

Around-the-Clock Monitoring Support

RDX's monitoring service comes complete with a 100% onshore operations center that is staffed 24/7 with personnel whose sole focus is monitoring your critical cloud systems and taking proactive actions to mitigate and/or prevent problems to ensure the highest availability and performance possible.
