Everything about Web and Network Monitoring

Paid Monitor adds a monitoring node in Canada


MONTREAL, July 22, 2011– Paid Monitoring, the award-winning provider of the world’s first all-in-one cloud-based service that combines web site uptime, server and application monitoring, today announced the deployment of a new monitoring node in Canada.

This will provide companies whose business relies on the Web, a complete and accurate performance picture from the perspective of both Canadian and international web site visitors.

The addition of this node brings the total number of Paid Monitor monitoring nodes operating around the world to 15.  Paid Monitor’ nodes across the US, Canada, Europe, Asia, Australia and South America monitor clients’ key IT processes every 60 seconds – offering fast and frequent checks, as well as alert notifications into the health of servers, networks, applications, events, cloud storage facilities, cloud platforms, websites, transactions and other processes.

“We have been using Paid Monitor service for more than two years now,” said Louis St-Jean, IT Director of LanauWeb Media.  “It is very economical, easy to set up and start using.  Most importantly, it provides us a proactive way of detecting performance issues with the web sites we monitor, so we can provide high quality and uninterrupted service to our customers.  We are very excited about Paid Monitor adding a new node in Canada.  It shows commitment to businesses in our country, enabling us to detect and fix web site performance issues that our Canadian customers may be experiencing even more accurately and quickly.”

“The addition of a new monitoring node in Canada will enable us to expand our level of service to businesses with customers in Canada,” said Paid Monitor Founder and CEO Hovhannes Avoyan. “What really sets us apart from the competition is the frequency of monitoring. If a typical service offers monitoring “once a minute from 100 nodes”, in reality it means each node is activated every 100 minutes. In the current business environment, companies can’t afford such delays before discovering slowdowns or disruptions at a particular destination. With Paid Monitor service, customers may choose one-minute monitoring intervals from all our monitoring locations simultaneously.”

In addition to offering clients a global network of monitoring stations, Paid Monitor also enables IT managers to create their own customized monitoring locations using a small footprint agent.

“As more companies come to rely on proactive monitoring and instant notifications of IT problems, Paid Monitor is committed to continuously expanding the network of monitoring nodes and raising the service bar higher,” added Avoyan.

The new monitoring location is provided by GloboTech Communications.
