Spurred by the benefits offered by rapid, cost-effective application deployment, companies are increasingly migrating applications and other workloads to cloud environments. However, in order to get the most from cloud, companies must also build an effective performance management strategy that works across multicloud and hybrid cloud environments. In fact, a recent IDC Cloud Pulse survey found that “performance monitoring and analytics” is the most important management capability in such cases. This means that companies must have end-to-end visibility into all services, applications, infrastructure, and associated interdependencies before, during and after workload migration.
Let’s look at VMware Cloud on AWS in the context of performance monitoring and service assurance. VMware Cloud on AWS is an on-demand service that lets companies modernize infrastructure using existing tools and skill sets. It obviates the need for complex application conversions, refactoring, or re-architecture. But successful migration also requires IT organization to have the right depth of visibility into workload performance and service levels in order to proactively identify and quickly solve problems. That’s where NETSCOUT’s partnership with VMWare adds particular value.
As one leading financial service company discovered, NETSCOUT’s performance monitoring and service assurance solution eliminates blind spots and provides a consolidated view from a single pane of glass that scales across VMware Cloud on AWS, hybrid cloud environments, and legacy infrastructure. Learn how that organization’s IT team gained much needed visibility into applications running on its complex hybrid cloud infrastructure, including proactively monitoring and troubleshooting application performance in VMware Cloud on AWS.
