Leveraging LiveNX for Effective Cloud Migrations
Many organizations are migrating their on-premises applications to the cloud today, and many more will continue to do so over the next few years. Unfortunately, cloud infrastructure and specialized point solutions do not provide the level of network and application visibility that architects and engineers on both the cloud and network sides need in order to be successful with these transitions.
The good news is that LiveNX now offers new cloud monitoring capabilities that can bridge these visibility gaps through flow to packet conversion for true application performance visibility in the public cloud. With the addition of these new capabilities, LiveNX now represents the industry’s only unified solution for complete visibility from the network to cloud and can be used for effective cloud migration initiatives.
Cloud migrations can vary greatly, depending on your company’s needs and objectives. In many cases, organizations struggle with these initiatives due to a lack of understanding when it comes to pre- and post-migration KPIs and an inability to accurately measure historical baselines and changes over time. Whether you’re migrating limited portions of your system such as a few specific databases or servers, or an entire application stack or data center, LiveNX provides the granular insight you need to make a smooth transition.
The solution provides end-to-end insight from on-premises environments into the public cloud and visibility into VPC traffic and the cloud services running through them. Say, for instance, you’re migrating an application from your core network to the cloud. In this case, you need to have a deep understanding of the application’s current state before doing anything and you must be able to confirm that everything works as intended post-migration.
LiveNX can enable you with application and service visibility that measures bandwidth usage and performance baselines pre-deployment (while the application is still on-premises) and leverages topology visualizations to identify application paths to help plan the migration effectively. It can then provide validation for bandwidth and performance levels once the transition to the public cloud is complete, and help you conduct ongoing measurement of current performance against historical trends via streamlined reports.
If you’re in the process of planning a cloud migration or think you might be in the near future, LiveNX’s new cloud monitoring capabilities can provide the end-to-end visibility you need.
