Best Free and Open Source Alternatives to Atlassian Statuspage

Last Updated on April 30, 2022

Atlassian Corporation Plc is a software company founded in 2002 that develops products for software developers, project managers and other software development teams. It employs over 7,000 people and is headquartered in Sydney, Australia.

Atlassian’s range of proprietary software includes software for collaboration, development, and issue tracking software for teams. Atlassian dominates several markets where it still has intense competition.

Broadly speaking, they offer software in three large buckets: These are software development tools; help desk software, or IT service management; and workflow management software. When you think of Atlassian, think project management and collaboration tools.

Many of their programs use a number of open source components. And their GitHub repositories hold lots of open source code. But their main range of software is published under a proprietary license. This series looks at free and open source alternatives to Atlassian’s products.

Atlassian Statuspage Atlassian Statuspage brings companies and customers together during downtime with incident communication.

Statuspage is proprietary software. What are the best free and open source alternatives?

1. Cachet

Cachet is our favorite open source status page system.

It’s easy to install, offers a powerful JSON API (with pagination, searching, sort/ordering), and two-factor authentication.

This PHP system needs an HTTP server, a relational database (MySQL, PostgreSQL or SQLite) and Composer (a dependency manager for PHP).

2. Upptime

Upptime is a GitHub-powered uptime monitor and status page. It provides a configurable uptime monitor.

Upptime doesn’t require a server as it’s all powered by GitHub. You can also run a self-hosted GitHub or GitLab Runner with your own resources. GitLab [Runner] also runs tasks on cron schedules.

3. Statping-ng

Statping-ng is a server to monitor your web applications and all other HTTP, TCP, UDP, ICMP and gRPC services.

One of the many virtues of open source software is that when development stalls, there’s the possibility of budding developers will fork the project continuing on with the work. Statping-ng is forked from the original Statping project.
