  • Information: You can follow the status of your infrastructure in real time thanks to our secure Extranet. You can also track the performance of your platform based on your KPIs.
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)
