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 on GCP relies heavily on an enterprise’s ability to quickly address performance problems as they occur and that includes eliminating hybrid cloud visibility "blind-spots."

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.
