A Corporate Status Page: Your IT Department's 'Must Have' Tool in 2021

If 2020 taught us anything, it is that a corporate Status Page is an IT ‘must have.’ With this one solution, IT leaders are able to address new challenges of remote work teams, as well as traditional issues — like high IT support costs, employee productivity, stakeholder transparency and IT team efficiency. 2020 was a year marked by the ‘virtualization’ of nearly every aspect of life.

Hosted Public Status Pages - a Must-Have for Every SaaS

Status pages have come a long way since their inception. They’re much more than just simple indicators. These days, they’ve become a critical aspect for companies embracing transparency. If you don’t want to be flooded with emails and phone calls from concerned customers during scheduled downtime, you must give public status pages a thought.

Now in Beta: SLA Monitor by StatusGator

StatusGator has been monitoring hundreds of status pages for more than 5 years. During this time, we’ve collected millions of data points about the status of the cloud: What went down, how long it was down, messages about why, and more. As StatusGator grows, we’re working on ways to incorporate this archival data into StatusGator for various uses. One common use: holding vendors accountable to Service Level Agreements. Introducing: SLA Monitor by StatusGator.

Building and Using a 2020 Status Page with Uptime.com

A hosted status page gives you the peace of mind that users can always answer one simple question: is it up or down. Hosted status pages work because they offer third-party confirmation your services are up. If your site goes down, the third party is likely not down and you can use them to refer to your status. Status pages are your personal 24 hour news cycle. Regardless of if you’re up or down, customer service fields fewer support tickets, and users praise your transparency.

Atlassian, the maker of Opsgenie (We have an integration for Opsgenie too!), also offers Statuspage. Statuspage is a communication tool that allows users to view the current and recent past status of a website, API, or web application. In addition to a hosted status notification page, Statuspage also sends out messages to users to keep them informed about your site’s availability. Now Uptrends can automatically send updates to Statuspage using the new integration.

University's IT Teams Struggle as Fall 2020 Semester Kicks Off

COVID-19 has left colleges and universities scrambling to come up with alternative plans for the 2020 fall semester. Some are opting for 100% online learning while others are taking more of a hybrid approach with a combination of in person and online classes. While schools face an abundance of change this academic year, it’s not just the faculty and students that need to adapt but also the entire IT infrastructure for which the school is run.

5 Biggest Outages of Q2 2020

Anything bad that can happen — will happen. This old adage applies 100% to the technology industry, where crashes and outages are far more common than the sales and marketing teams would want us to think. However, DevOps engineers that deal with infrastructure know how hard it is to ensure everything works as intended all of the time — and to configure monitoring that actually keeps track of a system’s health and helps prevent crashes and downtime.
