Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides resizable compute capacity in the cloud. Amazon EC2 is known for its uptime, thereby making it the right candidate for running monitoring tools like MONyog. You cannot monitor something effectively, unless the monitoring system is available almost all the time.
We are happy to introduce pre-configured Amazon Machine Image (AMI) which runs MONyog on an Amazon Linux instance of EC2. Launching this AMI would create an EC2 instance and starts the trial version of MONyog. In short, with just a click of a button you get your favorite MySQL monitoring tool on a trusted platform that is available almost all the time. MONyog can monitor MySQL servers running on Amazon RDS, Amazon EC2 or any other remote machine.
Additionally, popular cloud database services like Amazon RDS cannot be monitored by agent-based monitoring tools, so if you are planning to migrate to cloud anytime soon, please consider evaluating MONyog.
We are excited about this release, and hope that you will like it. We would love to hear from you!
