Organisations using multiple cloud environments now have the ability to measure and visualise app and network-layer performance metrics on a cloud-to-cloud, internet-to-cloud and inter-region basis.
With the release of its Network Intelligence service, ThousandEyes says organisations will be able to monitor cloud-based applications and services using any combination of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azureand Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
“Companies gain immediate and comprehensive visibility into every service delivery path in a multi-cloud environment, allowing them to overcome the complex operational challenges of multi-cloud deployments, accelerate cloud adoption and deliver superior digital experiences,” claims the firm.
ThousandEyes says the platform includes pre-provisioned and easy-to-deploy IaaS vantage points, including 15 AWS regions, 15 GCP regions and 30 Azure regions, as well as agent-to-agent tests between cloud agents. It says this provides the ability for IT teams to measure inter-region, hybrid and inter-cloud performance, map network paths and monitor connectivity between a combination of on-premises and cloud data centres.
Nick Kephart, senior director of product management at ThousandEyes, believes that without visibility into every path that applications and services travel across on the internet, enterprises are putting “blind faith” in the complex chain of service providers involved in delivering their services.
“They’re actively risking their end user experience and its impact on revenue, brand reputation and employee productivity, and this issue is only compounded in a multi-cloud environment,” says Kephart.
