The NETSCOUT/Google Cloud Partnership

Google Cloud

Enterprise organizations are accelerating their digital transformation with Google Cloud Platform (GCP) to achieve revenue and customer satisfaction goals. Whether migrating applications using lift and shift, refactoring existing applications, or developing new apps with microservices, managing the business in the hybrid cloud and GCP relies heavily on an enterprise’s ability to quickly address service performance and security problems as they occur by eliminating visibility "blind spots" in the hybrid cloud.

GCP has become a natural part of how organizations operate and require NETSCOUT end-to-end visibility across the cloud, on-premises data centers, and colos to assure business continuity, service quality, and security. NETSCOUT solutions deliver “Visibility Without Borders,” providing actionable insights to mitigate network and application performance issues, threats, and vulnerabilities.

User Experience

NETSCOUT application performance management for GCP allows enterprises to fully understand the issues affecting the performance and security of their digital services, so they can get ahead of any problems and ensure a positive business outcome.

NETSCOUT uses the industry’s most scalable, lightweight distributed architecture to generate smart data from packet data. Smart data is enriched with multiple data sources to deliver consistent, precise visibility across all aspects of any environment, improving analytics efficacy and enabling the automation that IT and DevSecOps teams need. NETSCOUT supports Google Cloud-native features, such as Google Cloud Packet Mirroring. Google Cloud Packet Mirroring lets you acquire packet data from multiple application workloads and mirror it to a vSTREAM® instance’s monitor port for advanced service performance and security assurance through NETSCOUT’s nGeniusONE® solution. This approach complements NETSCOUT’s virtual agent that offers software-based instrumentation of application workloads.
