Nodinite has been designed around a set of services that we call the 'Core Services'. We ship these as a single zip file for use with the Nodinite Install and Update Tool, a normal update usually takes < 60 seconds to run. You can skip versions since the releases are cumulative.

We ship Nodinite Core Services as 1 single zip file to make it easy for you to keep up with our pace as we release new features all the time

Nodinite can run on everything from a small footprint for small enterprises and scales for very large environments for the largest companies there are. Nodinite uses enterprise features from Microsoft to scale to meet your specific demands. We have customers running everything on a single virtual machine using SQL Express in Microsoft Azure Cloud for like 10€ a month. We also have other customers that run on dedicated setups with multiple web front ends, app servers and database servers, key for performance all boils down to disk IO.

With Nodinite; you can scale up and scale out as much as you need (can afford), and there is virtually no technical limitation.

Managed Services

Partners are our best friends, and Nodinite is theirs. Our partners can have multiple customers hosted on a single instance of Nodinite wherever they find it best to run, this is typically in AWS, or Azure or they provide hosting in-house. Nodinite connects to the Monitoring Agents wherever they are with very little configuration and low costs. From the shared Nodinite instance the support and maintenance team can keep their promised SLA because they know what to do using the built-in knowledgebase, and they get aware through alerts with custom metadata, they even got access to resources being monitored anywhere and at any time, and to top this off, Nodinite offers a plethora of remote commands that can solve typical problems. Solving problems and providing professional services for system integration solutions has never been easier!
