Welcome to the very first edition of Modern Monitoring, a collection of articles and insights designed to help IT operations and DevOps professionals deliver more resilient, supportable and high-performance IT services.
It’s perhaps a sign of the times that monitoring as a discipline is receiving much more attention within the biz tech community. And deservedly so. The new distributed application architectures being built, together with the dizzying pace of software delivery, demand new approaches in what’s traditionally been perceived as a “keeping the lights on” IT practice.
Of course, there’s no better way to consider monitoring than to draw parallels with other practices in related fields. It’s why we’ve included a couple of pieces with a distinct aeronautical flavor that discuss importance of instrumentation and contextual awareness.
Do you have an effective cloud governance plan? This whitepaper guides you through best practices for ensuring your applications and data can safely move between clouds - whether they are private, public or hybrid.

L'identité est une composante essentielle de la croissance numérique. Les entreprises et les organisations ne peuvent tirer pleinement parti des technologies mobiles, du cloud ou de l'Internet des objets (IdO, ou IoT en anglais) sans une stratégie d'identités évolutive et reproductible. Sans une telle stratégie, elles ne disposent d'aucun moyen d'identifier leurs clients et d'interagir avec eux de quelque manière que ce soit, par le biais d'un ordinateur portable, d'un mobile, d'une tablette, d'une voiture connectée, d'un objet connecté à porter (« wearable »), d'un appareil domotique ou de la toute dernière innovation en termes de connectivité. Ce guide a été conçu pour vous aider à comprendre les éléments fondamentaux de l'identité client et la manière dont elle peut vous aider à communiquer avec vos clients.
Founded in 1997, Benchmark Senior Living is the largest senior living provider in New England. The community in Shelton, Connecticut is just a short drive from the Connecticut coastline—the Split Rock community is home to about 50 assisted living and memory care residents. In addition to being a LEED-certified facility, Split Rock also exemplifies Benchmark Senior Living’s goal to leverage technology to enrich the lives of residents. To that end, the facility incorporates a range of communication technologies to promote engagement with family and the community.
Read this case study to learn about how Benchmark Senior Living selected an integrated solution from STANLEY Healthcare and STANLEY Security encompassing emergency call from portable pendants and fixed call points, wander management, environmental monitoring and access control to improve resident's lives.
Patient falls were the largest category of adverse events reported at Barnes- Jewish Hospital. Progress in meeting targets for reducing falls and fall injury rates had been static despite multiple efforts. One component of the hospital’s Fall Reduction Program was a portable bed exit alarm system—a Bed-Check Classic-Check® control unit (CU) with Sensormat® pressure sensitive mat— widely used throughout the hospital. Due to high demand by staff, the CU was often not available, resulting in delayed care delivery and staff dissatisfaction. Loss or damage due to handoff between staff and the central service department resulted in additional resources and costs.
Read this case study to learn how Barnes-Jewish Hospital implemented Bed-Check® Fall Management Solution as a part of their Fall Reduction Program, resulting in decreased fall injury rates and improved staff satisfaction.

As high-density IT equipment becomes the new normal, the amount of heat generated continues to grow substantially – as does the challenge of efficiently cooling data centers. Traditional perimeter and/or raised floor computer room air conditioning systems increasingly struggle to remove concentrated heat loads. In many small to mid-size data centers, implementing close-coupled cooling solutions can be a highly effective and efficient strategy for supplementing cooling capacity. Located in or near server racks, close-coupled air conditioning units focus cooling where it is needed most without lowering the temperature of the entire data center. In addition, these modular solutions make it easy to reconfigure cooling to handle new equipment or eliminate hot spots. As a result, using close-coupled portable, rack-mounted or row-based air conditioning units tailored to your specific data center needs can boost cooling efficiency and add valuable flexibility.
From startups to established companies, containers help meet the demands of a modern digital business –supporting massively scalable, portable and fast to deploy apps.
Engineered for the Modern Applications, Built by Modern Teams. Yes, it’s complex. And yes, there is much to consider. Start here for a quick overview of the essentials of container monitoring.
In time, containers will be the means by which all workloads are deployed on server platforms. It makes too much sense. Constructing fake machines around virtual workloads, just to make them portable across servers, was not the architecturally rational thing to do. It was the expedient thing to do, because cloud platforms had not yet evolved to where they needed to be.
This book presents a snapshot of the emerging approaches to container monitoring and distributed systems management that engineers and their customers are building together.

Companies rely on knowledge assets, such as product formulas and customer databases. VPNs and network monitors can protect proprietary information from outsiders; but, they won't do much to prevent access by internal users. With the popularity of wireless networks, USB drives and other portable devices, it's all too easy for insiders to leak key data. This white paper explains how Trend Micro LeakProof 3.0 protects sensitive data at rest, in use, and in motion.

Virtualization continues to lead a sea change for enterprise-scale data centers and cloud environments, delivering well-established benefits such as cost savings, reduced physical space and power requirements, simpler and more flexible testing environments, faster server provisioning, and improved return on investment. Yet for many organizations, one of virtualization’s greatest benefits is only now being realized in the form of highly portable and flexible virtual images. Natural extensions of virtualization technology, virtual images help organizations achieve even greater efficiencies and cost savings.
