Configuration management

Configuration management software enables automated scaling, rapid configuration of new Cloud Servers, and many other features used to automate the management of your environment.

Monitoring can alert administrators to issues as soon as they occur, typically before they become apparent to your end-users, and provide clues as to what is causing the issue.

SpinUp strongly recommends at the very least a ping check to the Cloud Server or Cloud Servers in your environment.

We recommend the following monitoring services, each one takes a slightly different approach to monitoring your environment.
