Data Center Power Monitoring Company Announces Partnership with Loggly
LogicMonitor, a provider of SaaS (News - Alert)-based data center monitoring, and Loggly, a cloud-based log management company, announced a partnership between their respective companies for monitoring applications and infrastructure.
Their partnership is expected to benefit system administrators, app developers, and management from the most complete picture available of operations — covering performance, availability and log management — in a fraction of the setup time, and with no infrastructure to own or maintain.
LogicMonitor, according to company officials, is one of the few monitoring services delivered from the cloud that watches over the health of network, servers, applications, and storage, and notifies engineers of performance issues.
Before impacting the business, these services are capable of monitoring the entire data center infrastructure from a single pane, making it easier for engineers to pinpoint the cause of performance issues.
“LogicMonitor and Loggly each provide different, yet complimentary pieces of the puzzle that are required by operations teams to better understand and make decisions about their applications and infrastructure,” said Steve Francis, founder and CEO of LogicMonitor, in a statement. “Since we’re both one of the only ones delivering monitoring services from the cloud, a partnership made good sense.”
The main benefit of Loggly’s cloud-based log management service is that it enables application developers and operations engineers to store, search, analyze, archive and alert on their logs with a minimal amount of setup and maintenance.
Besides simplifying application debugging, troubleshooting and alerting, Loggly’s service provides customized application capabilities via a rich set of APIs.
“With LogicMonitor and Loggly’s operations management platforms, devops teams can become lean, mean and highly responsive when it comes to debugging, troubleshooting and alerting on their applications,” said Kord Campbell, founder and CEO, Loggly.
“Together we will be arming organizations with real time data for operational and business intelligence. We’re thrilled to be teaming up with fellow operational visionaries like LogicMonitor,” Campbell added.
Recently, Modius and LogicMonitor announced a technology partnership to develop advanced monitoring capabilities for power and cooling infrastructure, allowing data center managers to generate a unified view of IT performance and energy consumption across their entire data center.

As the need to balance current and future IT requirements against resource consumption becomes more urgent, the data center industry increasingly views capacity planning as a way of achieving a critical component to planning a new build or retrofit. Data center capacity planning can be a complex undertaking with far-reaching strategic and operational implications. DCD Intelligence has therefore compiled this White Paper in order to share some industry insights and lessons on the practical steps that are needed to develop a successful power and capacity planning strategy.[Read More]
Server Technology had the recent opportunity, along with other partner companies, to participate in discussions across the globe with data center IT and facility managers as part of a road show seminar: Data Center Energy and Operational Efficiency.[Read More]
The demand for more power in the computer cabinet has led many data centers to upgrade to three phase power distribution. Proper three phase power distribution has traditionally meant dividing up power up into multiple branches within the rack PDU (Power Distribution Unit). In this paper we will explore the advantages of a new, less common approach to PDU design by means of alternating each phase on a per-receptacle basis instead of a per branch basis.[Read More]
Increasing powering and cooling demands within the data center have been the topics of choice for Data Center (DC) and Facility Managers for several years now. Increased power demands are a result of the need for more compute power and higher density devices have resulted. These high density installations include stacks and stacks of servers and the trend of implementing blade servers within these server "farms." Cooling problems are a direct result of the increased power demands based on the simple fact that more power increases the demand for cooling.[Read More]
