A status page system is software that lets you communicate incidents, schedule maintenance and downtimes with your customers.
A status page can be public or private. Public stage pages engender customer trust and demonstrate the reliability of a platform. Private status pages are useful to communicate incidents with internal stakeholders.
Status page systems offer control over how to communicate an incident on the status page. Good systems let you notify customers and stakeholders in real time reducing the volume of customer support queries.
There are many status page systems available for Linux. We recommend our favorites captured in a legendary LinuxLinks chart. We only showcase free and open source software here.
