Enabling Multi-cloud Monitoring
Enterprises are adopting multi-cloud strategies to reduce vendor lock-in and access best of breed services from cloud providers like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure, IBM Cloud and Alibaba Cloud. The proliferation of modular application architectures has resulted in a complex matrix of inter-service communication across infrastructures and networks that enterprises do not own or control. Much of this communication traverses the Internet, which has evolved into a mission-critical transport for enterprises.
Traditional monitoring tools that rely on packet capture, flow, SNMP and log data flatline outside the perimeter of an enterprise and can’t provide insight into connectivity to, from and within public cloud services, thereby creating a visibility blind spot in multi-cloud deployments. Provider-specific cloud monitoring tools and software can’t help you understand connectivity from users and communications across multi-cloud deployments. This lack of visibility puts enterprises at risk of delivering poor digital experiences that adversely impact revenue, brand reputation and employee productivity.
