Performance clarity with Microsoft Azure

Moving infrastructure to the cloud simplifies management, but increases physical and logical distance between applications and end users. Increased latency, round-trip time (RTT) and data loss can easily occur outside the WAN or behind the Azure gateway. The necessary visibility into these new environments is impossible to get with traditional performance monitoring tools. AppNeta identifies and pinpoints the locations of performance issues in Azure, however you're using it.

Hybrid cloud

Moving parts of your application from a traditional data center to Azure increases flexibility and scalability, but reduces visibility and introduces the network as a performance dependency. AppNeta can monitor between your data center and Azure for consistent end-user experience.

SaaS apps

Enterprises are integrating SaaS application data and services into their own applications. It's crucial to have visibility into the performance of these integrated SaaS apps, now that your application is dependent on them. AppNeta provides critical performance insight for companies using SaaS, whether for end users or integration into internal apps.

Cloud bursting

Scaling to meet traffic demands is essential for large applications today. Azure makes it easy to spin up or down hundreds or thousands of hosts, but users can't see into its software-defined network (SDN). With so many hosts created when bursting, that makes for a highly dynamic network. AppNeta sees into all networks, through every step of the app delivery path, for true visibility.

You can't see network performance into Azure without AppNeta

The large number of network hops within Azure aren't visible when you don't own your infrastructure.

Get better performance data

AppNeta provides unique insight into your network, the wider internet and Azure with TruPath™ technology. Its patented analysis engine delivers granular detail on why applications are slowing down and where the bottlenecks are. For SaaS and cloud-deployed applications, AppNeta provides a unified view of the end-user experience across the actual application delivery path, even through Azure's SDN.

Go beyond device-centric or BGP metrics that fail within Azure infrastructure. Instead, AppNeta lets you see hop-by-hop where your traffic is going, in real time. Use Level 4 application-based TCP packets to analyze route changes or traffic shaping within Azure's firewall. AppNeta's deep diagnostic engine analyzes traffic to identify the root cause of application latency.

Identify regional performance differences

Supporting multiple offices, even remote ones without IT on site, has never been easier than with AppNeta. Target any Azure region by looking at application usage from the closest office. Then automate a continuous low-overhead stream of packets to identify congestion along the application delivery path. See the network as your users do, from any source location or availability zone.

Cloud migration to Azure brings huge benefits, but also a critical loss of performance visibility. Regain that visibility with AppNeta.

Now we can say ‘it’s not a network problem and here is the report that shows why’ and have full confidence. Sometimes it is a network issue. And when it is we know that it is from a bad hop, or that we’re losing packets. We can see the weak link in the chain, and get it fixed.
