Many have referred to the Internet of Things (IoT) as the “third wave” of the internet evolution. Consumers can’t help but notice the increasing array of connected devices coming online, ranging from washing machines and refrigerators to personal fitness trackers and automobiles, and even intelligent machines imbedded into our clothing, that are popping up everywhere. What many consumers may not realize is that industry is also getting on board in a big way with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

Since the beginning we’ve focused on monitoring performance, tuning our monitoring engine and our data storage technology to eek out the best gains possible, allowing you to monitor more systems with fewer resources. It’s those efforts that have helped us to deploy massive installs monitoring thousands of systems from a single FrameFlow installation.
Today we’re happy to show you how, in v2017.1, we’ve achieved some pretty massive improvements. Let’s take a look.
At FrameFlow, we fully understand the importance monitoring all the various IT systems that are critical to your business operations including: servers, routers, switches, HVAC systems, temperature sensors, back-up power supplies and virtually any type of device with an IP address, to ensure they are indeed performing as required. Our cutting edge, but easy to use and fully customizable monitoring software scales to continually scan 10s of 1000s of IT systems, with over 85 different monitoring types to cover all requirements.
Here’s the rundown on some of the special features that make FrameFlow standout.
