Are you fully-equipped to monitor the performance of your applications that are running partially in the cloud? Do you have real-time insights into all the data required for precise allocation of resources? Are you tracking every single interaction taking place across silos? Given the unstoppable expansion of hybrid cloud services, IT administrators and infrastructure managers are finding it hard to monitor application performance for end-to-end availability and a positive user experience. Hybrid cloud surely comes with the advantages of easy deployment, lower costs and better scalability but the lack of visibility into end-user metrics and app performance keeps enterprises from enforcing accountability and making better decisions regarding resource allocation.
When your system administrators are unaware of impending security threats or a bottleneck that can deter the end-user experience, the efficiency levels of your enterprise can take a nosedive due to performance degradation and downtimes. The hybrid-cloud service delivery mode is most likely to penetrate over almost 50% of all organizations by the end of 2017 and at this rate, enterprises need to employ a performance monitoring tool that understands infrastructure connectivity and tracks behavior across silos to help system admins eliminate blind spots that lead to security vulnerability and performance gaps.
The Shift from Traditional Performance Monitoring To Complete Control
Accountability and control are crucial to cloud infrastructure success. When applications and data are spread across different cloud environments, it becomes extremely difficult to track every single interaction manually. While some cloud service providers offer dashboards and software solutions that track service availability and app performance, they fail to identify blind spots and performance gaps across your virtualized hybrid-cloud infrastructure. When your system administrators do not have an end-to-end view of your application performance in a service-oriented architecture, troubleshooting becomes extremely tedious and time-consuming. No IT team can trace and connect every single interaction and maintain a health check on app performance at every step.
Following are a few major reasons to help you understand why a virtualization monitoring tool has become mandatory for achieving better business outcomes:
The Need for Flexibility
The legacy approach to deploying a monitoring tool was simply installing it alongside your data center application and locking it down to the physical devices. Today your applications run on a combination of physical and virtual servers placed in both public and private cloud and they may expand as your business grows. Deploying a network-monitoring tool will help your IT team shift the focus from managing and monitoring the virtual infrastructure to optimizing capacity utilization.
To Facilitate Faster Deployments
Today applications need to be changed on a daily basis and this needs an agile approach. In order to facilitate faster and frequent deployments, it is important to have a single pane of glass visibility as the pace of change increases. Only an advanced network monitoring tool can give you second-by-second visibility into your wide-reaching virtualized hybrid-cloud infrastructure.
To Deliver a Positive Customer Experience
Today every company is focused on delighting the customer and this entails delivering a digital consumer experience. The way your applications interact with the end-user plays a vital role in giving your brand a competitive edge. The ability to manage, monitor and measure the performance of your applications is a prerequisite to delivering a positive customer experience.
All of these factors need continuous monitoring of performance across datacenters, irrespective of where the components are stacked – on-premise or on the cloud. Legacy tools and traditional monitoring techniques are not equipped with the ability to deliver end-to-end visibility into vast virtual infrastructures.
Taking Advantage of Complete Visibility for Enhanced Accountability and Reduced Risk
Achieving optimum performance is only possible with a robust and reliable performance monitoring solution that guarantees:
- Instant insights into the transactions flowing through your virtual infrastructure
- Reduced troubleshooting time by identifying the root cause in real time
- Optimization of app performance and resource allocation
