Cloud Monitoring is an easy and fast to deploy. You can scale as you go and it's highly available: everything is designed to be redundant, monitored and available (difficult to achieve with on premise setup)
We could summarize the advantages of a Cloud solution rather than a on premise solution:
We work a lot with SaaS editors: Cenareo, Scoop.it, Sierra Wireless, showcase sites: Les Pepites Tech, edge-computing offers, and many other companies.
The servers are hosted on AWS, in Paris region (probes are located in Frankfort, Ohio and Singapore). AWS is a one of the world leader of the Cloud market and is recognized for strong security process in their Datacenters.
Bleemeo propose a REST API. This API is used by our web interface and the mobile application. You can browser the API on https://api.bleemeo.com/v1/.
Bleemeo agent is written in GO and code is Open Source under the Apache license. Sources are available on our github https://github.com/bleemeo/glouton. Feel free to read, audit and even contribute to the code source.
Bleemeo charge a usage-based per server connected per month. Our pricing and plans are available on our website at https://bleemeo.com/pricing/. Our billing granularity is per hour, it means that every hour your server is connected, usage will be billed. If you only connect two hours a month (on an elastic infrastructure for example), you will only be billed for two hours.
The Enterprise plan allows prices to be adjusted according to needs: data retention, frequency of data return.
No, right now we only have the Cloud offer available.

Switching to our Cloud offer let you benefit from the usual SaaS offers: no infrastructure to setup and maintain, no software deployment to do and maintain. No internal competencies or time needed. We propose a calculator to let you compare the prices of hosting your own monitoring and using our Cloud offer.
Every machine is considered as a server: physical and virtual server. For each server monitored, you will have an in details view of the server internals. It makes sense to deploy an agent on a physical host hosting virtual machines as you may want metrics and internal details of physical and virtual machines. You don't need to deploy an agent for every container, agent should be deployed at the host level.
In summary: you need to deploy an agent for each Operating System kernel.
Nothing more simple! Make your signup here: https://bleemeo.com/trial/ and follow the steps to deploy your first agent. You should be up and running in 30 seconds: you will have all of your Dashboards created automatically 😉.
Data is stored on our hosting partner (Amazon Web Services) Paris region. AWS is known for having strong security requirements in term of physical Data Centers and network access.
We made the choice to let our users control the updates. But rest assured, we will send you a little email when the agent is to be updated.
