Bigpanda vs FireHydrant: What are the differences?
What is Bigpanda? The cure for alert fatigue. Bigpanda helps you manage and respond to ops incidents faster. All your alerts: organized, assignable, trackable, snoozeable, and updated in real-time.
What is FireHydrant? A simple incident response tool. FireHydrant allows you to maintain an organized log of incidents, the events that occurred during them, and integrations to lift information to the surface that matters.
Bigpanda and FireHydrant can be categorized as "Monitoring Aggregation" tools.
Some of the features offered by Bigpanda are:
- Issue tracking for ops
- Reduce noisy alerts
- Easy collaboration
On the other hand, FireHydrant provides the following key features:
- Incidents - Tie Incidents to components and start keeping track with notes, milestones, and Slack messages. We’ll keep everything organized for when you head into your post mortem.
- Components - Have an API and a Web UI? Add them to FireHydrant as components. Organize your incidents by the components you provide in your application. You can quickly find previous incidents for them too. Components make it easy to report on which things fail the most.
- Slack - We have a deep integration with Slack that allows you to quickly create Incidents, add notes and milestones, and coordinate response. You get an incident specific channel automatically that allows you and your team to coordinate response to any incident on FireHydrant.
