How to improve visibility in mature virtual environments and the cloud

The best monitoring tool is the one you love. Radically reduce troubleshooting and downtime by bringing everything into context.

We’re the company that set the standard for enterprise-grade integration for IT monitoring. We believe that data is dimensional, not flat, and health and performance metrics must include their relationship to other components in the IT stack to truly provide insights. We deliver this Dimensional Data using the industry’s first IT monitoring integration service (MIaaS), BindPlane.

Dramatically reduce downtime when you eliminate data gaps and silos. Only Blue Medora can deliver a relationship-aware stream of metrics and logs in real time:

  • Easy to start: One integration solves all your problems. Integrate hundreds of operational data sources into a self-maintaining connection.
  • Easy to maintain: Always current integrations with supported updates; no development needed.
  • Real results: Of those who fully deployed Dimensional Data, one in five saw more than $1m/year in savings and one in two saw more than $100k in savings.

We know monitoring. We live integration.
