LightEdge Solutions, a leading provider of colocation and cloud-based solutions, selected ScienceLogic’s hybrid IT monitoring platform to monitor both its customers’ equipment and the equipment within its data centers. Beyond providing colocation and cloud-based solutions, LightEdge acts as a trusted advisor to its clients with a team of experts certified across all of the technologies they use internally, including ScienceLogic’s platform. Further, as a certified ScienceLogic implementation partner, LightEdge will be reselling ScienceLogic’s hybrid IT monitoring platform.
ScienceLogic was chosen for:
- Multi-Tenancy: LightEdge was challenged with ensuring operational efficiency as they scaled and added more customers. The ScienceLogic platform’s highly automated, multi-tenant capabilities removed this barrier. With multiple levels of data segmentation by various profiles including by user, organization, geography and technology, the platform allowed LightEdge to view all of their customers’ environments from one platform for operational use while extending secure visibility for customers via their customer portal.
- Technology Coverage: Using and managing multiple different technologies exponentially increased the IT management complexity for LightEdge. ScienceLogic’s software dramatically simplified this task. Powered by hundreds of PowerPacks—plug-in monitoring templates covering multiple technologies which are included with the base platform for free — the ScienceLogic software provides out-of-the-box support for virtually every technology used in the datacenter and infrastructure.
- Intelligent, Adaptive Alerting: Improving problem resolution time was a key goal for LightEdge and their clients. With ScienceLogic, they benefit from automatic event correlation coupled with automatic actions — reducing the number of alerts received and time to resolution.
“After an exhaustive analysis of available monitoring technologies we decided to not only purchase and implement the ScienceLogic platform, but to also partner with ScienceLogic as a preferred implementation partner,” said Jeff Springborn, Chief Operating Officer and President, LightEdge Solutions. “The combination of ease of use, technology coverage, and built-in functions such as runbook automation and ticketing, make ScienceLogic’s platform unparalleled in the market today. We believe in the technology enough to strategically align with ScienceLogic as an implementation partner and further their expansion into the Midwest.”
