Monitis, the leading provider of the world's greenest, all-in-one, hosted network and application monitoring suite, today announced The Academic Plan - a comprehensive, all-you-can-eat (or unlimited) package and pricing model for schools, colleges, and universities.
The new Academic Plan offers everything found in the traditional Monitis suite of tools, but also includes unlimited monitoring. So academic institutions, be they schools, colleges, or universities select one of 3 possible packages - Small, Medium or Large based on the number of servers they need monitored, and nothing else. It's that simple.
Starting from just $248 per month, the Academic Plan, is a perfect offer for schools with even the tightest of budgets, as all added-value services are free - the number of parameters to monitor, the number of network devices, and even alerts including Live Voice and SMS alerts. As a result, educational institutions have the luxury of employing a single monitoring solution instead of the standard current mix of multiple open-source software solutions (e.g. Nagios, Zabbix, Zenos, Cacti), commercial software solutions (like Solarwinds, Whatsup Gold), and external end-user experience monitoring services (like Gomez, Keynote).
Given that Monitis operates on a SaaS model and is based in the Cloud, IT managers throughout Academia can avoid the cost, stress, hassles, and limitations of using traditional software-based monitoring tools. With Monitis there are no upfront license fees, no updates to manage, and no servers to maintain. Getting set-up and running with the complete suite takes only 5 minutes, and as Monitis offers the Industry's most reliable notification system, users can rest easy knowing that they'll be notified even if their system or network is completely down.
But in addition to all of the professional advantages Monitis offers, it is also the greenest monitoring solution available today. Because schools, colleges, and universities that use Monitis don't have to buy and operate their own monitoring servers, they save massively on electricity bills and minimize their carbon footprint. Indeed, with the average server's electricity bills running approximately US $1,050/year, academic institutions save more money on electricity bills than they will spend on Monitis' services. The savings increase even more dramatically when the cost of acquiring and maintaining the server are included, as well.
Said Monitis' Founder and CEO, Hovhannes Avoyan, "For schools, colleges, and universities around the world, Monitis' Academic Pricing plan is a no-brainer. Take the world's leading-edge monitoring technology, wrap it in a pricing plan with a TCO that's even lower than open-source systems like Nagios or Cacti, and then factor in the carbon footprint reductions, and Monitis has an offer for Academia that is truly unbeatable.” See more at http://portal.monitis.com/index.php/monitis-for-education
