Netmon Cloud Server Monitoring

Netmon Server monitoring allows you to monitor your servers at certain intervals to notify and invoke DNS failover based on your rules. Test your servers using almost any protocol including HTTP/S, POP3, IMAP, SSH, PING, SIP Options, Jabber and many others

  • Adjustable monitoring interval from every 10 seconds to every hour
  • Monitor from many locations – up to 7 locations across the globe
  • 19+ different methods/protocols to test your servers/apps
  • Load Balance & Failover server pools based on latency or downtime
  • Setup multiple notification and failover rules
  • Detailed Stats and Monitoring logs

“This service provided us with valuable insight on our VOIP network and allowed us to failover to backup servers when a primary had high latency or stopped responding. It’s been rock solid and has helped us move towards 99.999% availability”

VoIPLy Customer Case Study  

See why VoIPLy selected CloudfloorDNS over Hardware Load Balancers like F5 and others.   They added speed and resilience to their VOIP Platform by switching to the CloudfloorDNS Anycast DNS platform.  They gained over 600% in core DNS speeds resulting in faster, more reliable apps, websites and VOIP services.   Less latency means better call quality and VOIP Failover adds an additional layer of redundancy [Read the Case Study]

Fastest, Closest server

Delivery higher VOIP call quality and reliability by combining our GEO DNS Director and VOIP Failover.   GEO DNS Director automatically detects your end-user location and quickly routes them to the fastest, closest server. Use with Cisco Spark, Cisco Expressway, or most other VOIP & UC platforms.  Get even more control with Geo-targeting for direct specific regions or individual countries and quickly send them to regional servers or load balancing pools.  VOIP Failover tests your SIP protocol on each server and will pull them out of load balancing pools automatically and add them back in when they come back up

  • The ultimate in traffic control for your VOIP, UC & UCaaS
  • GEO SRV DNS Records offer smart DNS routing
  • Tests SIP Options protocol on TCP. UDP or TLS for availability or latency
  • Geo-Locate, Load Balance & Failover server pools
  • Works with CNAMES & compatible with all UCaaS & Cloud Providers

Load Balancing & Failover

Load Balancing & Failover

Combining our DNS Load Balancing along with DNS Failover provides you the latest in internet traffic control.   Highly scalable and reliable this combination of services allow you to load balance traffic among server pools while constantly monitoring your individual servers for latency or downtime. When a server falls below your custom set latency threshold, it’s removed from the server pool automatically and re-added when it comes back up!

“The VOIP Options failover by Cloudfloor offers us a quick and effective way of monitoring our VOIP Services and failing over based on a set latency threshold or on server failure.  Not only are we notified almost instantly, but the DNS Failover pulls the offending server out of the load balancing pool and adds it back in automatically when it comes back up.  This low cost and effective service helps us provide a higher quality of service to our clients”


VOIP Innovations

VOIP Innovations is a wholesale VOIP carrier that has selected CloudfloorDNS VOIP Options Failover to add a higher level of reliability and call quality to their services.  By actively monitoring their VOIP server platform using VOIP Options monitoring on port 5060, VOIP Innovations operations can quickly be notified of downtime and/or latency on any one of their individual servers and instantly failover to a backup.  Failover can also be initiated manually for any maintenance windows and will automatically failback when individual servers come back up or if performance increases to a custom threshold
