ManageCat is a cloud management and monitoring platform to manage, monitor, control and provision of the cloud based software infrastructures.
Currently in the SaaS market, lots of SaaS monitoring products exist but they only provides metric monitoring. None of them supports the Control(like start, stop, restart etc. of manageable resources) and Management parts (resource configuration remotely, provisioning of new resources). ManageCat is a very unique in this regard especially with SaaS based platform model.
Recently we have launced industry first management and monitoring cloud platform for Apache Web Servers. In 5 minutes, you can start to manage, monitor and control your Apache Web Servers.
