Multi Cloud and Hybrid Cloud Monitoring
Core to Cloud to WAN edge observability for actionable insights into network and application health
The benefits of turning to a multicloud and hybridcloud infrastructures are undeniable
- reduce risk from vendor-lock in
- control costs by scheduling geography-based workloads
- enjoy the best-of-breed features from different cloud providers
- But making this choice is often easier than managing it.
Challenges Monitoring Multi-Cloud, Public and Hybrid Cloud Environments
Lack of Holistic Visibility
Many organizations rely on the free native monitoring tools that are included by their cloud vendors when they purchase the cloud. With multicloud - this means multiple, siloed monitoring tools that don’t have ability to understand how neighboring cloud services can impact each other
Limited Insights into Resource Utilization
Without reporting that can see into the entire 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
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.
Uniting Your Complex Cloud Environment
Baseline your Performance Prior to Migration
Compare service performance levels before, during, and after migration. This historical data can also be used to train algorithms to recognize and alert when network behavior deviates from that baseline, indicating performance or security concerns.
Make a plan how to handle encrypted traffic
For swift network anomaly detection across hybrid, public or multi-cloud platforms, encryption visibility is a must to prevent malware infections
Use Predictive Analytics
Advanced & Predictive Analytics enable monitoring solutions to scale for multi-cloud or public cloud environments. An NPM should collect and normalize diverse data sources, and analyze traffic from the infrastructure to the cloud. Advanced analytics are built off AI/ML techniques to ingest data at scale and make recommendations
Be able to trace entry and exit points of traffic
Visualize app path within the cloud with visual representation of entry and exit points. Your monitoring platform should allow you to follow an application’s path from on-prem to the cloud, seeing per-hop behavior.
Choose a single user-interface
Unite your cloud infrastructure with a single platform that streamlines management across multiple environments but that also allows you to split cloud visibility data into n-dimensions for targeted troubleshooting, cost /consumption, historical analysis via playback.
Know your Compliance Requirements Upfront
While many cloud providers have many certifications for meeting global compliance requirements like HIPAA, PCI, ISO 27001, DSS, FedRAMP, etc. But cloud compliance is not just the responsibility of cloud providers.Organizations are responsible for monitoring and maintaining these metrics.
Intelligent Cloud Observability
Did you know that 43% of network managers say their network operations strategies are driven by cloud initiatives? Yet often multi, hybrid, and public cloud solutions lack the level of visibility needed for NetOps and CloudOps to successfully manage the infrastructure.
Gartner predicts that 80% of enterprises will have entirely cloud-based infrastructures by 2025.
