High availability has never been so popular than in the recent times. Businesses demand continuously available systems. Incorrect configurations to infrastructure / vulnerable software versions could potentially lead to a system outage or a security vulnerability. Remediation efforts were manual and reactive. IVT - a home grown solution validates & reports Infrastructure deviations in real-time. It helps achieve high availability and performance goals like uptime, reduced mean time to recover, software and configuration hygiene.
Why a homegrown tool?
Adding a new data collection system.
