for Hybrid and Multi-Cloud Operations
Advanced visibility from the core to the cloud delivers actionable insights into network and application performance
LiveAction cloud monitoring uses LiveNX as the centerpiece to deliver:
- A familiar interface so NetOps is productive in the cloud quickly
- Cloud application performance data where none exists
- The best cloud operation flow data for alerting and troubleshooting
- Root-cause analysis for cloud operations based on packet data (with LiveWire)
Challenges of Monitoring in Cloud Environments
Lack of Holistic Visibility
Many organizations rely on the native monitoring tools offered by cloud vendors. These multiple, siloed tools don’t allow your NetOps teams to understand how cloud impacts overall network performance, creating blind spots and limiting troubleshooting.
Limited Insights into Resources
Without reporting that sees into the entire cloud environment, organizations run the risk of buying unneeded capacity or worse, underestimating the network’s need. Without historical performance data, it’s difficult to anticipate future capacity needs.
New Security Considerations
With cloud operations, privileged credentials must now be managed across multiple environments and policies for data governance across cloud environments must be established to protect data from risk. This can create nightmares for SecOps teams.
Cloud Network & Application Visibility
Gain deep visibility into traffic, application usage, and performance across your cloud infrastructure. Using the familiar LiveNX platform as the control center, LiveAction enables application-aware NetFlow visibility where traditional visibility gaps may exist with legacy or evolving vendor landscapes.
Support Day 2 Operations in the Cloud
LiveAction supports day two operations – monitoring, network troubleshooting, and application behavior – for cloud, hybrid, and multi-cloud operations. Get a hop-by-hop analysis of application paths for KPIs like application and path latency, utilization, packet loss, and more.
Cost and Consumption Analysis
LiveAction lets admins slice and dice cloud visibility data into n-dimensions for troubleshooting, cost and consumption analysis, and historical analysis via playback capability. With LiveNX, you can measure cloud applications and services performance, and baseline utilization over time, for capacity planning and cost optimization.
Whether migrating a few specific databases or servers or an entire application stack or datacenter, you’ll need a clear understanding of pre-and post-migration KPIs. LiveAction measures historical baselines and changes over time, so your team knows what good, and bad, performance looks like.
Security Incident Response
With LiveNX, you have clear and deep visibility into accepted and rejected traffic in your cloud operations. Once an intrusion is detected, LiveNX records the activity – the network packets – to determine both the fingerprint and the extent of the breach so you can respond quickly and confidently.
Any Cloud Provider
LiveAction is designed from the ground up to be vendor-agnostic, supporting networking devices from just about any provider. This flexibility extends to the cloud, with support for AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, and other cloud services providers, so you can host cloud operations where it makes sense.
Gartner predicts that 80% of enterprises will have entirely cloud-based infrastructures by 2025.
According to Forrester, 94% of US companies are cloud adopters, with 75% using multiple public clouds.
