I am interested in what monitoring and alerting options are available in vCloud Express. I am thinking of automating scaling and such. Also, how do these options compare with what's available in eCloud?
In vCloud Express many customers use third party monitoring and alerting tools that are either installed in their environment or subscribed to as a service. Within the Enterprise Cloud interface you have the ability to create monitors for load balanced internet services. A detailed description of this can be reviewed in the Enterprise Cloud Support portal: support.theenterprisecloud.com/.../default.asp. For other monitoring and alerting activities; customers utilize third party tools in much the same way as vCloud Express.
