Chicago, Illinois – (The Hosting News) – January 5, 2007 – Dedicated server and colocation service management firm, FastServers.Net, has developed a fully integrated bandwidth monitoring and notification tool, designed to allow customers to determine bandwidth allocation upgrade needs, based on Bandwidth Alert System responses.
The Bandwidth Alert System wil be provided at no extra charge to FastServers.Net customers and is available on all servers. Customers set bandwidth limitations prior to being notified by the advanced, yet simple to use Bandwidth Alert System.
Aaron Phillips, Vice President of Marketing at FastServers.Net elaborated, ”Bandwidth Alert System is a ‘first of its kind’ in the managed dedicated server industry. Now, customers have a way to monitor their bandwidth usage without the hassles of logging in and checking MRTG or RTG reports manually. The new system enables customers to ‘set-and-forget’ while our network power server closely monitors their bandwidth usage. Customers are then alerted via email to any address they choose; providing ultimate peace of mind with the bandwidth monitoring and notification utility.”
Customers with servers requiring both low and high bandwidth hosting, are anticipated to benefit from the Bandwidth Alert System. Server bandwidth usage monitoring is now easier and planning bandwidth allocation can be done quickly. Prior to the release of Bandwidth Alert System, customers were responsible for monitoring bandwidth usage, thus creating an environment where any overage came at a surprise costing the customer unplanned expenses and time spent dealing with the oversight.
The system can be setup in ten seconds or less and is designed to save customers time and money, therefore, increasing awareness of all bandwidth usage on one or all of their servers. Notifications are sent to any email address specified in the Bandwidth Alert System and can be changed in real-time. In addition, Bandwidth Alert System reports are generated and sent at 1AM CST daily. If the specified bandwidth threshold is reached, a friendly email with further instructions on how to upgrade bandwidth allocation is sent to the specified contact.
Mr. Aaron added, ”There is no need to read or try and interpret complicated bandwidth usage reports as Bandwidth Alert System provides the necessary information needed in order to help customers make better, more informed decisions when planning for increased bandwidth usage. This type of communication with our customers makes it easy for us to cater to their exact needs, budget and overall experience with FastServers.Net.”
