Utrecht, Netherlands, 2008/09/23 - In order to meet customer demand, WatchMouse is proud to announce the expansion of its global infrastructure with another eight monitoring stations being deployed over the past two months.
The new stations are in: India, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, South Africa, Switzerland and the USA. WatchMouse now offers 25 monitoring stations in major European and North American cities, with a further 10 stations spread across Africa, the Middle East, South America and Oceania.
WatchMouse's extensive infrastructure provides the means to accurately monitor sites and web applications from the perspective of users based in different global locations. Such multi-point monitoring is imperative as site performance varies greatly depending on the location of the user (e.g. customers in the USA might quickly access a site, while for users in Germany, the same site has errors or a long load time). WatchMouse CTO, Mark Pors explains that "Even if your site works well from your headquarters, customers may still have trouble reaching it from different external locations. As a slow or faulty site can frustrate users, damage the reputation of a company and result in lost sales, it is essential to monitor from more than one point."
As the vast majority of businesses are aware of the need for global performance monitoring, WatchMouse was surprised to find global performance issues on the sites of some major international organizations, including the social networking site. In recent research WatchMouse found that social sites performs well in the USA but showed serious user issues from many other locations.
WatchMouse’s market leading infrastructure can help international organizations identify performance issues. Equally, WatchMouse supports clients who require performance monitoring within a particular region by allowing monitoring to be restricted to a sub-set of monitoring stations. This feature is useful for companies that only trade within a large country (e.g. USA) or region (e.g. Europe) but still require comprehensive monitoring within their area of operation.
WatchMouse (watchmouse.com) provides global performance monitoring to thousands of customers in over 70 countries. In addition to a market leading infrastructure, WatchMouse offers automated alerting and an advanced user interface for complete self-management of all monitoring features and subscription details.
