ThinkHuge makes the move from Paessler PRTG to Checkmk
Secure and reliable data centers are essential
ThinkHuge is an expert in digital innovation in the forex industry. The company runs a wide range of platforms to support traders with educational information and virtual platform services such as Virtual Private Servers (VPS). To ensure 100% uptime, redundancy, and low latency, the IT team has built their own private cloud environment. The necessary hardware resources are hosted in 12 data centers around the globe at multiple locations in Asia, Europe, and the USA. To ensure customer satisfaction and a good user experience, ThinkHuge needs to monitor all of its IT assets.
All members of the IT team have access to the monitoring and see the current status of an issue. Thanks to Checkmk, everyone is on the same page and has a full understanding of the situation.
Checkmk monitors hosts such as servers, switches, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and other devices found in a data center. Because ThinkHuge relies on several vendors in different countries, the monitoring has to support a wide range of systems. The IT teams appreciates that Checkmk on the one hand supports many systems out-of-the-box, but also has an open core. In the case of a system without an official monitoring plug-in, the IT team can simply write their own integration with relatively little effort. ThinkHuge is pleased that they chose Checkmk. When the infrastructure grows or changes, the IT team is able to adapt the monitoring with just a few minutes work.
ThinkHuge does not need to manage multiple tools for monitoring, but can use Checkmk as a single-source-of-truth. The monitoring keeps an eye on all systems and provides comprehensive, detailed information. The IT team can see issues and anomalies at an early stage and take action before these can affect the customers’ user experience.
