Stay focused on your priorities. We take the lead in handling disruptions and downtime in the data center using hardware monitoring. Once a fault is detected, a ticket is immediately opened for you, followed by a call from your engineer to discuss the service plan. You no longer need to stop what you’re doing to report a service issue.

You can always count on monitoring alerts, automated ticketing and the right parts to increase service speed and uptime in your data center.

Monitoring FAQs

Find answers to common questions about ExpressConnect Monitoring. To explore how automation and hardware monitoring improve your data center maintenance, please contact us to learn more.

How does Monitoring work?
Using the built-in monitoring that is part of your server, storage and network equipment, ExpressConnect Monitoring immediately detects the hardware issue, opens a ticket for you, adds related service diagnostics and notifies our service team. Within 30 minutes, your engineer calls to discuss plans for your service.
How secure is ExpressConnect Monitoring?
Data center security is always top of mind and is included in the design of ExpressConnect Monitoring. Our system is
based on a security hardened version of Linux that is patched and maintained by Service Express. ExpressConnect Monitoring is NIST compliant and we monitor for security alerts and have locked down any unnecessary ports and applications to eliminate ports exposed to incoming internet traffic.
How will Monitoring be implemented within my data center?
In order for our service engineers to install ExpressConnect Monitoring, we will need remote access to your equipment and an environment to deploy the virtual appliance. Once deployed, technical support will complete configuration and testing remotely. Any system monitored by ExpressConnect will simply add its IP address as an SNMP destination. It typically takes 10 minutes per system for configuration.

For a physical install, the onsite appliance takes approximately 2 hours to deploy and then another 10 minutes per each system.
