At Kano/Apps we make apps that serve hundreds of thousands of players worldwide. Both up-time and performance is top priority for us and our players. We rely on Webcron across all our apps including our most recent Kano Games to alert us of potential performance issues and service disruptions before our players do! We were sold on the flexibility, ease of use, reliability and cost. Great support is just an additional reason to use Webcron, they have always been quick to respond and very helpful!
ScheduleOnce is an online appointment scheduling application that serves tens of thousands of customers worldwide. The performance and uptime of our systems are of crucial importance and since people all over the globe rely on our availability, we cannot afford even a the slightest downtime. We have been monitoring our servers with a number of other systems and were not happy with their usability and pricing and we decided to search for a new solution. We evaluated a number of vendors but they were either too expensive or not professional enough to rely on. When we found Webcron.org and saw the pricing model we immediately liked it - We pay for what we use and don't need to fit ourselves into an expensive plan. When we signed up and saw how easy and clear things were we were even more delighted. We setup some monitors in a number of minutes, setup SMS notifications and it all worked like a charm. We are really glad we found Webcron!
In our complex banking infrastructure, we urgently needed a flexible, easy to use monitoring solution for one of our web applications. No setup problems, immediate implementation all at an annual cost below € 60... Webcron even allowed us to detect short downtime periods overlooked by our hosting partner !
I am very satisfied with the service as of now... Just one feature request is that you should allow to set a timezone by group or by task in case of Cron too.
I am happy with the webcron account. I use it to post tweets at http://twitter.com/bhadragiriyar. I'd be using the service lightly (two cron invocations per week) and just bought credits for 3 euros. The 1 euro default amount was useful to try out the service, Thanks!
Many other services exist that do the same job. You just work better. You can not beat the detail and cost point provided by Webcron.
