Net App Cloud Insights is a hybrid monitoring service capable of monitoring not only on-prem servers but also Azure and AWS installations. Performance monitors are easy to configure, and notifications channels are configured with just a few clicks. SIGNL4 ensures that all on duty members receive, acknowledge and resolve critical alerts, all from their smartphones. With persistent notifications and escalation chains there will never be a critical alert that goes unattended. SIGNL4 also offers ad-hoc collaboration between team members for each alert, so Subject Matter Experts can be looped in to help resolve issues.

HOW TO INTEGRATE
In our example we are using Net App Cloud Insights to monitor the performance of Azure Virtual Machines. The on-duty team members will be alerted via Push, SMS and Voice from the email generated within Cloud Insights.
SIGNL4 is a mobile alert notification app for powerful alerting, alert management and mobile assignment of work items. Get the app at https://www.signl4.com

First, we need to make sure the alerts are notified to the SIGNL4 team.
From the Left Navigation Panel, select ADMIN and choose Notifications.
SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section. Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.
