As long devices have been connected by networks, people have recognized the need for some sort of network management and monitoring technology.

In this snip, we'll go over how to set up an AWS EC2 instance in WhatsUp Gold 2018. Once we've got our host set up, we'll then create a simple monitor to be notified when the EC2 instance is stopped.
The idea for server virtualization technology was originally conceived as a means to reduce costs through software consolidation. Looking back it seems like a pretty obvious solution, but at the time this was revelatory. Instead of running each individual workload on a separate physical server, unused hardware capacity was now able to be used to run a number of workloads at the same time as virtual machines.
When your business is growing so is your network. Even when business isn’t booming (thanks economy) your business’ infrastructure can be evolving too. What you need is a software tool that’s able to manage these network configuration changes for you.
Your entire IT infrastructure has to be constantly reviewed in order to ensure the health of your virtual environment. Here are some best practices you can use to ensure that your virtual environment remains stable and reliable.
You can think of device roles as a template for the way that your network monitoring tool interacts with a device, ie. the configurations and monitors that it applies to the device.
CompTIA A+ certification gives you a basic foundation in networking, software and PC hardware. Server+ certification helps you dig deeper into those concepts as they relate to the server. The latter credential tells shops you have what it takes to be a server technician, server support specialist, server administrator or storage administrator.
Here's to you, sysadmins, and all that you do. Thanks for all of the troubleshooting, the config fixes, and the reboots. May your networks always be connected, may your servers always be up and may DNS errors never find you.
