SIOS Technology Corp., has announced the availability of SIOS AppKeeper to the North American market. Claimed to be the industry’s first out-of-the-box solution to automatically respond to service outages on Amazon EC2 instances, SIOS AppKeeper protects applications from service interruptions and downtime while eliminating the need for costly and time-consuming manual intervention. SIOS AppKeeper is immediately available with a free 14-day trial for end-users and channel partners.
Organizations adopting public cloud infrastructures are using application performance monitoring tools (APM) to alert their DevOps teams when performance changes occur, pinpointing the origin of any issue to facilitate manual remediation, but often bury users in hard-to-manage alert storms. SIOS AppKeeper not only identifies and sends notifications for failures from an intuitive dashboard, it will also automatically attempt to restart failed services or reboot the instance – addressing 85 percent of application service failures. It can be used alone or with an APM tool.
SIOS AppKeeper was first introduced in the Japanese market in early 2017 by sister company Japan-based SIOS Technology, Inc. and today is used by end-users, managed service providers (MSPs) and systems integrators (SIs) across the APJ region to monitor and remediate AWS EC2 instance issues.
“In line with SIOS Technology, Inc.’s strategy of taking solutions successfully introduced in one market to larger, global markets, we are launching SIOS AppKeeper in the North American market,” said Nobuo Kita, Chairman, President and CEO, SIOS Technology.
According to data from SIOS’ existing customers and partners in Japan, the average customer with only three AWS EC2 instances experienced AWS EC2 instance downtime at least once a month. With SIOS AppKeeper, they were able to reduce their downtime by 90 percent, allowing IT personnel to focus on higher-value tasks and improving service level agreements (SLAs).
