It is an excellent incidence response and alerting service that is both straightforward and powerful and will make sure that every member of your team is on the same page regarding IT infrastructure status.
PagerDuty is for anyone who needs to escalate alerts. PagerDuty is excellent for organizations where there are one or more monitoring systems that need to be consolidated into a single escalation system (e.g., Pingdom for system availability and Nagios for specific sub-checks). PagerDuty also excels at scheduling on-call staff on a daily, weekly or other basis. Override tools are also provided so that if Frank is out for a few days, Keith can be scheduled without breaking the rotation. In some certain personal environments, PagerDuty would escalate a set of monitoring systems in a uniform manner and notify of issues. In work environment, it would be an excellent tool to handle alerts for level 3 support teams where Systems, Network and possibly Management teams would each have an escalation path to which some alerts would go directly, and others would be initiated after an investigation by Level 1/2 technical staff.
PagerDuty is an agile incident management system designed and developed by former Amazon engineers who used their experience and expertise to build a system that seamlessly integrates with IT Ops and Dev Ops monitoring stacks to help enhance operational reliability and agility. PagerDuty enriches and aggregates events and then correlates them, turning those events into actionable alerts. The system then accelerates and smoothens the incident management lifecycle by reducing noise and resolution times. PagerDuty is a very popular tool, mainly because it is an alerting application that is simple, user-friendly and integrates well with other business systems and applications. The system is implemented in lots of countries and has scheduling that enables for follow-the-sun ops teams to thrive.
PagerDuty is an alarm aggregation and dispatching service for system administrators and support teams. It collects alerts from your monitoring tools, gives you an overall view of all of your monitoring alarms, and alerts an on-duty engineer if there's a problem.
