Google Operations (formerly Stackdriver) is a monitoring service that provides IT teams with performance data about applications and virtual machines running on the Google Cloud Platform and Amazon Web Services public cloud.

What can Zenduty do for Google Operations users?

With Stackdriver’s Integration, Zenduty sends new Stackdriver alerts to the right team and notifies them based on on-call schedules via email, text messages (SMS), phone calls(Voice), Slack, Microsoft Teams and iOS & Android push notifications, and escalates alerts until the alert is acknowledged or closed. Zenduty provides your NOC, SRE and application engineers with detailed context around the Stackdriver alert along with playbooks and a complete incident command framework to triage, remediate and resolve incidents with speed.

Whenever Stackdriver triggers an alert based on a predefined condition, Zenduty will create an incident. When that condition goes back to normal levels, Zenduty will auto-resolve the incident.

You can also use Alert Rules to custom route specific Stackdriver alerts to specific users, teams or escalation policies, write suppression rules, auto add notes, responders and incident tasks.
