Microsoft System Center Global Service Monitor
Achieve a 360-degree view of the health of web applications by extending application monitoring capabilities beyond your organization’s network boundary.
Monitor application performance from points of presence around the world
With the growth of Software-as-a-Service and web applications, existing techniques fall short in monitoring and identifying external factors that can negatively impact these applications. System Center Global Service Monitor is a cloud service that extends the application monitoring capabilities in System Center 2012 beyond your organization’s network boundary. Global Service Monitor uses Microsoft Azure points of presence to help give you a true reflection of an end-users’ experience of a web application.
System Center Global Service Monitor uses Microsoft Azure points of presence across the globe, monitored alongside existing data found within the familiar System Center 2012 Operations Manager console to report on availability, performance, and function of web applications.
