What do you and all of your friends have in common? Perhaps you all liked the latest action film or Android release. Here at CloudPhysics, we like to think and talk about uptime. When working with tier 1 applications, mission critical systems, online commerce engines, or any other highly available service (e.g. five 9's), uptime is what you work hard to achieve.
Today we're releasing our Uptime Benchmark card. This card not only allows you to know which of your hosts or Virtual Machines have the highest uptime, it also lets you anonymously compare your maximum uptime position against all others' hosts and VMs in the CloudPhysics community. View your position relative to everyone else, see hosts and VMs grouped in six month ranges, and also a list of your top 10 results. Finally, easily switch between host and VM views with a click.
You can also view your VMs or hosts in a distribution view; grouped every six months. Easily view which cohort contains the most VMs and hosts.
Lastly we also provide a look at which of your VMs or hosts has the highest uptime. This list shows your top 10 results. Remember that you can share this or any card with team members for reporting using the SHARE feature. Try it today!
Finally, keep in mind that while thinking about uptime, planned downtime for patches, security updates and ESX updates are also very important. These tasks should not be ignored in favor of longer uptime values.
