Chennai, India – March 4, 2015: ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today launched EC2 Manager. Available immediately, the free Android app allows IT admins in SMBs and large enterprises to monitor the health and performance of EC2 instances remotely.
The mobile app enables admins to perform the EC2 management tasks on the go. They can also monitor the performance of EC2 cloud instances on Amazon and receive alerts on the health of EC2 resources.
The EC2 Manager dashboard displays the monitored instances by region, enabling the admin to drill down to an instance quickly. The EC2 instance dashboard provides a snapshot of its status and health. Information on CPU utilization, network I/O, and disk read/write performance helps admins easily assessthe EC2 instance performance from the comfort of their workstations. Admins can also view the details of EBS volumes including its capacity and state.
“Proactive management is key to ensuring good health and performance of any resource on a network,” said Vidya Vasu, Head of the ManageEngine Community and Free Tools. “When it comes to managing EC2 instances, admins will find instant access to alarms quite handy. Threshold-based alarms usually give admins time to turn things around. Being equipped with a mobile utility cuts down the turn around time because the admin is able to act on the fault immediately.”
ManageEngine also has a free desktop tool for EC2 management that monitors unlimited EC2 instances. The mobile app provides the additional advantage of allowing admins to manage the remote instances even when they are on the move.
