AMS consider offering failover/fallback aaS

Adam van Vliet (Chief Information Security Officer) 2 years ago in Service / Plugins updated by Matthew Davis (Engineering Manager) 6 months ago 2

As we're capturing information on the health of systems it seems like a good value add would be to allow those services to be "failed over" using that information.

Consider Azure Traffic Manager, it has some crossover with what we're doing. Could its External Endpoints monitoring do the job? I.e. we host an endpoint that Azure Traffic Manager calls into to check the health of the underlying service? Or do we develop out some additional functionality that responds to DNS requests and do the failover ourselves?

UNIFYMonitor has roadmapped functionality to call webhooks on alert triggers. These webhooks could be used with correctly configured alerts, to trigger a background process for failover - leaving it up to customer or service delivery to ensure this meets requirements.


Currently no business requirements to offer the failover solution as a direct service sell under UNIFYMonitor.

GOOD, I'M SATISFIED

Happy with this. I wouldn't expect something like this unless we had our own business driver for it. Thanks.
