Understand Network Monitoring Solutions

X-ray goggles or a telescope; network monitoring in the age of SDN and the Cloud.



The technology landscape constantly changes, and your network monitoring strategy needs to change with it. Two recent developments are pulling in opposite directions: SDN offers unprecedented visibility into your network, while moving to the Cloud may reduce the visibility you’re accustomed to. Either way, you need to adapt.

Your Challenge

  • Maximize performance regardless of your situation. Whether it’s taking advantage of new visibility or dealing with the disadvantages of lost visibility, you want to squeeze every ounce of performance from your network that you can.
  • Don’t just sit on the data that an SDN can give you. Take advantage of the new visibility by optimizing network traffic, diagnosing problems more easily, and using automation to respond more quickly to failures.
  • Your applications might have gone to the Cloud. Your responsibilities didn’t go with it. Cloud providers might be the ones delivering the service, but you still have a duty to ensure expected levels of performance.

Our Solution

Our program helps you:

  • Identify how to use enhanced visibility from SDN to enhanced network performance.
  • Measure the quality of your cloud provider’s performance and hold them to their service level agreements.
  • Coordinate different network monitoring practices if you have hybrid on-premises/cloud infrastructure.
  • Determine whether or not you need to purchase a network monitoring solution.
