Performance precision with Google Cloud Platform
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 Google Cloud ingress. Traditional performance monitoring tools can't capture the visibility needed in today's cloud environments. AppNeta identifies and pinpoints the locations of performance issues in Google Cloud, however you're using cloud services.
Moving parts of your application from a traditional data center to Google Cloud increases flexibility and scalability, but reduces visibility and introduces the network as a performance dependency. AppNeta can monitor between your data center and Google Cloud Platform for consistent end-user experience.
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 offers critical performance insight for companies using SaaS, whether for end users or internal application integration.
Scaling to meet traffic demands is essential for large applications today. Google Cloud 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, the result is a highly dynamic network. AppNeta sees into all networks, through every step of the app delivery path for true visibility.
The large number of network hops within Google aren't visible when you don't own your infrastructure.
