WatchMyDC is an agentless solution that does not require that you install something on each resource within your infrastructure. Simply install a WatchMyDC Collector, in each location of your infrastructure. The Collector will then monitor the resources within your infrastructure using standard monitoring protocols.
WatchMyDC is a cloud-based monitoring solution. All of the data collected by your WatchMyDC Collector is consolidated in a WatchMyDC data center, and this data is accessible from anywhere with an internet connection.
Hybrid Monitoring Solution
WatchMyDC is a hybrid monitoring solution—it can monitor every aspect of your infrastructure, no matter how dispersed or complex it is, whether it’s on-premise, in a CoLocation, in the cloud, or any combination of these.
Most importantly, WatchMyDC allows IT teams to delegate control of their infrastructure to their infrastructure itself. The platform allows out-of-the-box playbooks and allows users to create any number of custom playbooks enabling enterprises to automate their infrastructures and reduce configuration and troubleshooting timelines.
This is incredibly useful in scenarios where enterprises may be reluctant to eliminate their existing infrastructure investments and can instead utilize WatchMyDC to introduce interoperability between vendors. Such scenarios may include failovers in the event of downtime and other situations involving configuration changes.
