The IT landscape is changing rapidly and cloud services are becoming critical to business operations. However, transitioning to and supporting cloud services can present major road blocks to successful network management. AppNeta was a featured sponsor of the recent Cloud Fair 2012 conference last week in Seattle, WA. The conference covered a range of timely cloud topics including cost-savings, security best practices, infrastructure management and performance management of critical cloud applications and services. Along with AppNeta, sponsors included Google, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, Rackspace, Box and SunGard Availability Services.
Cloud users and providers from across industries stopped by the AppNeta booth to discuss strategies for assuring the performance of cloud services. Unlimited visibility into third party networks is absolutely critical to cloud service providers as well as users. Key performance metrics such as latency, loss, jitter and bandwidth utilization, paired with the ability to pinpoint the issues in highly distributed networks, gives users and providers the data necessary to assure performance. Hosted cloud providers, like Terremark, SunGard Availability Services or Amazon Web Services, can automatically generate reports to present to customers to show SLA compliance. Cloud users need to proactively monitor their cloud services to make sure their critical applications are being delivered as promised.
