If it isn't strategic or core to your business, don't be afraid to consider outsourcing it.
I haven't even begun to dig into the API yet, but I've been happy with the ease of setup and how simple it is to create, update, and complete an outage or disruption report.
Thanks for the solving this problem, guys!
Right now the meta page is hosted on Heroku so I wouldn't use if for anything that's on EC2 for example.
Not being skeptical, just wondering what people think... I've had ideas similar to this, but am still trying to figure out the threshold for payment on things that companies fully need but can justify building internally.
It's a matter of priorities. I can spend the time to build and maintain a tool like this or I could spend that time improving our service for our customers. Paying someone else to manage this for us is a complete no-brainer regardless of the size of our customer base.
This kind of comment is a gross simplification of a market, and just shows that you haven't really thought about it much at all.
This is the perfect thing to pay someone else to run for you. I'd gladly pay $50/mo for it.
Edit: really like the service - considering using it for our status page
Plus, I really like the Series T Financing idea (see footer link).
PS: are you able to survive your customers problems (if things like EC2/EBS goes down again?)
I do like how easy it is to access pricing though.
There is also something going on with the testimonials on a 1080p screen, unless it is supposed to be spaced like:
where the blank boxes are white space.
