Status Page


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

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.


Update Statuspage using the new Uptrends integration

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.

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.


Here's the Top Tool Your IT Department Didn't Know They Needed

COVID-19 has impacted every single aspect of our lives as we knew them. Almost overnight, businesses had to create an entirely new working environment, parents had to become teachers and essential workers become the real heroes. As time goes on, more and more businesses are transitioning to 100% remote workforces.


The Importance of Communicating Scheduled Maintenance to End-Users

Often, outages are planned. In fact, in most organizations, outages are typically not caused by something going wrong, but because some kind of IT operation requires your team to take a system temporarily offline. Communicating scheduled maintenance is just as important, if not more important than alerting users to unplanned outages.
