Application Monitoring Solutions
End-to-end performance monitoring on cloud services, applications and networks assures the shortest resolution times. Because this level of visibility is the only way IT-OPS and DevOps teams can determine which bits-and-pieces are contributing to the delays users are experiencing.
We have selected solutions with the best price/performance while maintaining ease-of-use and fast deployment; either based on subscriptions or a product sell.
Having visibility on network patterns combined with machine learning are more than welcome to assure application and data integrity.
However, at times you need access to the network packets that triggered an alert by any of the IDS, IPS and SIEM solutions.
Complementary, network forensic solutions help you by automating the packet capturing and analyses; including the network packets before the alert was triggered!
One of the key elements in having visibility on the best possible user experience is production readiness testing for the most important business applications. This is because the business expects the same quality-of-service for all applications across all sites; regardless the type of client and network connection.
Our cost effective test solutions help you to get visibility on which applications and networks behave as expected for any workload.
Application Visibility Services
Data center and cloud migrations require a significant amount of preparation; including:
- What is the user experience before and after the migration?
- What are the application dependencies?
- What are the network volumes for both the LAN and the WAN?
Once an application is migrated, the validation starts. If not as expected, figuring out the root-cause as quickly as possible is important to assure the migration is completed within time and budget!
Having visibility on the performance of applications and networks can be a real challenge with multiple technology partners and different cloud providers:
- What applications are consuming the available bandwidth?
- Where are the users coming from?
- How is the network handling all this traffic?
- What sites/users are suffering and with which applications?
With our health-check we are able to answer these questions quickly!
In general, trainings cover the capabilities of a specific solution. However learning how to read the outcome and translate that into improvements is rarely covered:
- How to identify application and network issues?
- How to analyze these issues?
- How to determine the (potential) root cause?
- What could help to improve things?
The installation and configuration of an NPM/APM solution can be quick and easy, as you know what to look for.
Based on our extensive experience, regions and IP subnets can actually be an excellent way for a jump start in the things you are trying to achieve!
Let us know what you are looking for and we will outline our approach as we speak!
