Decisions about Pingometer and updown.io

We needed a monitoring tool to track application uptime, response time and provide a public status page.

After looking at several options including the big ones like Pingdom and Pingometer, we went with updown.io. Their pricing model allowed us to pay for exactly what we needed (number of endpoints and frequency) without selling us anything we weren't going to use.

Their interface is easy to use, service has been rock solid and their public status pages look great.
