Monitoring your applications and environment is a key capability of Hybrid Cloud Observability and is also available in a standalone module, Server & Application Monitor (SAM). Hybrid Cloud Observability and SAM are built on the self-hosted SolarWinds Platform.

High Availability

SolarWinds High Availability (HA) provides failover protection for your SolarWinds Platform server and Additional Polling Engines to reduce data loss when your primary server goes down. If your primary server fails, HA allows your secondary server to take over all services, such as polling and alerting, with minimal downtime.

HA offers the following key features:

  • Rapid failover: Ensures monitoring and data collection continuity.
  • Instant notification and alerting: HA notifications are independent of the SolarWinds Platform alert feature, so you’ll receive alerts even if the SolarWinds Platform server is down.
  • Customizable failover rules: Configure alerts to trigger failover based on application, system, process, and service health thresholds.
  • Easy installation and configuration: HA is fully integrated into the SolarWinds Platform and is licensed per pool.

Similar to other features shared by multiple SolarWinds Platform modules, the latest information about HA is available in the SolarWinds Platform Administrator Guide.
