    To choose Managed Application Outsourcing is to choose:

What does a Managed Application Outsourcing service include?

  1. Monitoring (Zabbix tool):
    • Liberty level: Monitoring, know the physical or virtual server status (“up” or “down”) and check certain network ports.
    • PRIME level: Standard monitoring, a Zabbix monitoring tool agent is installed on your server. Like a probe, it takes accurate readings, checks the status of system resources (RAM, CPU, disk, network, etc.) and services (https, web, search, bdd, etc.).
    • Business and First level: Advanced monitoring, custom probes are installed on your platform, they check the availability but also the quality of your resources (Eg response time of a server). For example, on a web platform we check the response time of a home page. These measures are recorded and compared to identify service impairments. Beyond a certain threshold alerts are sent, and human intervention is necessary. These interventions may be provided for in a book of procedures.
  2. Backup/ restoring:
    • Liberty and Prime level: Available as an option
    • Business and First level: Included, a backup must be externalised (different from a Snapshot), it includes a copy of all the resources needed for restoring (system + databases).
  3. System Management: There are 2 levels of system management available at Ikoula.
    • Section A: actions to maintain the availability of services according to a procedure book
    • Section B: defines the human time necessary for the daily management of FP (security update, software)
