Sensu launched its latest cloud and infrastructure monitoring solution for managed service providers (MSPs), offering MSPs a new way to monitor dynamic workloads and various infrastructures for their multiple customers.

It is estimated that by 2020, more than 50 percent of companies will have transitioned to container technology as compared to less than 20 percent in 2017. Sensu can handle ephemeral container and virtual cloud workloads, keeping up with constantly changing infrastructure.

“Traditional monitoring solutions for MSPs are often unable to keep up with businesses’ IT requirements,” said Caleb Hailey, CEO and co-founder, Sensu. “MSPs need tools that can meet the heterogeneous cloud and legacy monitoring demands of their various customers as they migrate to container and microservices-based infrastructure. Sensu’s multi-cloud monitoring solution offers MSPs the flexibility they need to support their customers across their various (and often multi-generational) infrastructures.”

Using Sensu’s subscription-based technology, the latest cloud monitoring solution now offers MSPs a multi-tenant solution for dynamic container and kubernetes workloads. Sensu’s solution also offers:

- Multi-tenancy built on Kubernetes-style namespaces, popular with IT environments using containers and DevOps

- Customizable templating that allows the MSPs to build consistent, repeatable, and automated workflows for their customers

- Ability to specify different policies for each customer centrally and send alerts directly to the customer’s preferred communications platform to take action

- Flexibility and ability for application developers to bake in alerting escalation for use by container orchestration systems

- Communication and interfacing directly with existing professional services automation platforms for timely resolution using Sensu’s open API

- Centralized distribution for monitoring, allowing users to update and push monitoring and osquery type tests to tens of thousands of servers
