Windows 2019 Server Downtime Alert

Posted 3 weeks ago
Only freelancers located in the U.S. may apply. U.S. located freelancers only

We have a Windows Server 2019 instance running on Azure, to which I connect with via RDP, and there are periodic windows updates that area automatically installed (or a random crash) that results in the server being offline until I fully log in again, and I have no idea that the server is down unless I keep checking.

I'm looking to have an app developed that sends a ping or something, such that if the ping isn't occurring, I get a text (or I suppose an email) alert, so I know to go log into the server.

Please let me what you think and how long you think it'll take to build it.

For security purposes, id want to it be built on your own test environment, and we can install together when it's complete.  Thanks!
