Recently we had to set up server monitoring via SMS for our Dedicated Server. We were hoping there would be a free service so did a fair bit of research into this. As it turns out we didn't find a free service, but we did find much information which we have compiled and we hope will save other people much time. Here is a list of Companies that offers server monitoring with SMS alerts. This is particularly useful if you have a server or web hosting business and wish to keep track of your uptime and downtime.
Recently I have been developing a SMS application for a customer in Rockhampton and have spent significant time researching SMS Gateways for my customer in attempting to select the most appropriate one for his application. Many great SMS Gateways don’t suitably work in Australia, which is dissapointing. We have ended up selecting Tropo – www.tropo.com
