Monitoring with More is a 2021 Necessity

One of the best ways to squeeze maximum value from available resources is to adopt a new approach to infrastructure management.

Park Place revolutionized 24/7 hardware monitoring with ParkView. Now we’re back with more.

Significant uncertainty remains about the coming year. Most experts predict IT budgets will be constrained in 2021, which puts CIOs, IT directors, and the boots-on-the-ground folks in data centers and remote locations in a difficult position.

Countless IT organizations need to rebound from a tough 2020, rationalize and streamline infrastructure, and reboot strategic projects that may have stalled during the pandemic. But budget realities could intervene—these efforts will be derailed if “keeping the lights on” concerns cost too much.

One of the best ways to squeeze maximum value from available resources is to adopt a new approach to infrastructure management. That’s the promise of Park Place’s rapidly expanding ParkView product suite and the DMSO (Discover, Monitor, Support, and Optimize) category our company is now leading.

Eyes on Everything with ParkView

IT equipment is a cornerstone of the data center, remote locations, lab environments, edge facilities, and more. Park Place revolutionized hardware monitoring with our original ParkView solution. ParkView Proactive Hardware Monitoring won awards for providing a new level of transparency into storage, server, and networking gear.

Clients who tried this system eagerly reported back that it was a game-changer, saving them time and money because they no longer had to perform manual check-ups on their equipment. They also loved the automated fault detection, triage, and ticketing features that took “support management” entirely off their plates.

Park Place has always recognized the need for a more comprehensive solution that provides support for OS issues with physical, virtual, and cloud servers, and  the network that ties everything together.

We tried to tell you, we were on it. We’ve been working hard on a ParkView suite that meets a full range of needs. You can start with ParkView Discovery, as we discussed here, to identify assets and automatically catalog product details and generate topology maps. From there, it’s a matter of monitoring all parts of the digital infrastructure with:

  • ParkView Hardware Monitoring, the first OEM-agnostic equipment monitoring solution ever
  • ParkView Server Monitoring to keep watch over Linux, Windows, and VM operating systems and notify you only when events merit attention
  • ParkView Network Analytics to provide smart network monitoring, plus powerful management capabilities
  • ParkView Server Management, a solution for monitoring and remediating Windows, Linux, and VMware operating systems issues.

Combine the current family of ParkView products and you have unparalleled transparency with the ease of a service that is managed and delivered by Park Place, enabling your staff to focus on growth initiatives.. And because everything is integrated, it’s all available through a single provider, while providing you will total visibility via the Park Place portal. ParkView helps bring an end to the disparate  discovery and monitoring toolsets most organizations struggle with, and that’s a welcome relief.

Declutter Your Management Toolkit

DMSO brings IT order out of today’s chaos. Powerful monitoring and support solutions work in concert to alleviate the fatigue that comes with the deluge of alerts your staff may be experiencing with existing tools, providing  a far less stressful oversight of the entire IT environment. Think of ParkView as your ticket to Zen infrastructure management, simpler and less cluttered than the disparate systems you’re probably relying on.

What will you do with the extra focus you gain with ParkView monitoring products? I’m sure you’ll think of something. Just contact us to get started whenever you’re ready.
