Javier Soltero just launched CloudStatus during his Hyperic sponsor session today at Velocity. CloudStatus is a public health dashboard for web services like Amazon’s EC2/S3, and Google’s App Engine.
Javier called to tell me about this last week after I declared that “Service Monitoring Dashboards are mandatory”. This comes right after Amazon and Google had visible outages, and couldn’t have happened at a better time. I’m really excited to see this idea take off, as it’s something that is critical to the broad adoption of web services and cloud computing.
