Considering network slicing in the wake of net neutrality repeal

How Network Slicing May Affect Your Network and Application Performance
April 13, 2018 by

Networking Technology, Performance Monitoring

The basic principle of net neutrality, which prohibited internet service providers from throttling speeds or intentionally blocking content, applications or websites, is no longer our reality. Now we’re left to wonder, as bandwidth-hungry applications and connected devices exponentially increase global IP traffic, set to reach 3.3 ZB per year by 2021, what will ISPs do

How and why to benchmark your public cloud

How (and Why) to Benchmark Your Public Cloud Performance
April 9, 2018 by

Cloud Computing, Performance Monitoring

Back in 2011, the average company spent just $6,300 on cloud computing. That’s a drop in the bucket for all but the smallest IT budgets. Things have changed in the intervening years. At the beginning of the decade, companies were just beginning to dip their toes into the cloud. Now they’re completely submerged. Out of

WebRTC is great for end users, but what about the network

WebRTC: Boon for End-User Experience, Burden for Networks?
April 4, 2018 by

Industry Insights, Performance Monitoring

Like just about any other technology, WebRTC has followed the hype cycle pretty closely. (Were you surprised to see a headline on this topic in 2018?)

WiFi performance is a tough nut to crack

What’s Holding Your WiFi Performance Back?
April 2, 2018 by

Networking Technology, Performance Monitoring

We have a tendency to take WiFi networks for granted. As consumers, we don’t think about the logistics of WiFi—we just want to watch Netflix without constant buffering. The same expectation carries over for employees using business applications. They don’t care what’s going on with the WiFi in the background. They just want seamless access

Doing a Cloud Computing Reality Check
March 22, 2018 by

Cloud Computing, Performance Monitoring

For at least the last couple of years, IT has been pressured to put everything into the cloud. Whether it’s new startup operating entirely in the cloud or a large, established enterprise trying to migrate, cloud computing has been positioned as the obvious evolution of IT.

AWS monitoring tools explained

AWS Monitoring Tools Explained
March 20, 2018 by

Cloud Computing, Performance Monitoring

Managing security and performance in the cloud is a tradeoff. On the one hand, your traditional applications will certainly break—they’ll be unable to monitor the data flaws that occur in the cloud, as there’s no analogue in a traditional data center. On the other hand, you’ll have undreamed-of visibility—something that no traditional data center can

Why your performance monitoring isn't working at remote locations

Why Your Performance Monitoring Isn’t Working for Remote Locations
March 14, 2018 by

Networking Technology, Performance Monitoring

Many businesses are supporting remote locations, which include any office or location that doesn’t have its own data center and connects to a company data center over a network—LAN, WAN or public internet. Scaling to these locations means that network types are expanding too. Plus, application infrastructure is becoming distributed. SaaS and cloud providers host

SD-WAN and WAN optimization are coming together

SD-WAN and WAN Optimization Aren’t Destined to be a Dynamic Duo
March 13, 2018 by

Networking Technology, Performance Monitoring

Just last summer, we published a post that discussed the differences between SD-WAN and WAN optimization. At the time, many people were simplifying the discussion and wondering if SD-WAN could replace aging WAN optimization solutions. When you break down the purposes of each technology, the two look more like a dynamic duo than a replacement

AppNeta's monitoring alerts are proactive

Move Toward Proactive Alerts for Network and Application Monitoring
February 26, 2018 by

Performance Monitoring, Product News

Too many software alerts can cause IT teams a lot of annoyance. Though they’re designed to be useful and prevent bigger problems, alerts from multiple systems can easily overload IT inboxes. We hear from customers that they want to use alerting more proactively, rather than continually just reacting to alerts that aren’t all urgent or
