Avoid Cloudy Days
The Cloud Gives You Agility, Flexibility, and Scale, But Also Requires You to Give Up Control Over the Physical Infrastructure
Make sure your cloud solutions provide you with a comprehensive set of tools to guide through your digital transformation journey. While migration to the cloud can be very beneficial if done right, it can be expensive and painful if done wrong. Get the facts you need before you make the leap.
When You Need Cloud Visibility
Purpose-Built Solutions Deliver ROI.
As you deploy your cloud solutions, you will need cloud visibility to optimize performance and ensure security. As part of your implementation, a best practice is to add visibility components. However, one hidden trap is that some of the service providers may offer “free” visibility components. While this may sound enticing, the old adage “you get what you pay for” applies. You don’t want to find out later (when you have a performance problem or security incident) that your visibility solution didn’t deliver you the right information so you “missed things.”
Don’t Become Blinded by the Cloud
Monitor Your Whole (Hybrid) IT Network.
Modern enterprise IT networks are shifting from physical on-premises to both private and public cloud networks. As IT makes this operational shift, packet-level visibility must be maintained for hybrid (on-premises + cloud) architectures. Packet data is required from every part of your enterprise to all of your security and monitoring tools to ensure optimum network performance and prevent blind spots.
Use Active Monitoring to
Test the Performance of Your Cloud Solution.
One of the biggest complaints from IT departments that have made the leap to the cloud is around network performance. The solution is to perform real-time testing of your network to validate both network and application performance whenever you need to.
Avoid Cloudy Conditions…
Visibility in Hybrid Networks Can Provide the Key to
…validating the performance of your network as you migrate from an on-premises architecture to a cloud. This allows you to anticipate potential problems within your cloud network before you actually applications. Another interesting use case is to use active monitoring to validate that your provider is delivering upon their SLA. While your vendor may always say they are delivering upon the specified SLA, it’s always good to get an independent validation. For whatever solution you choose, you’ll want a solution that allows you to test all types of architectures – public, private and hybrid cloud solutions.
