Multi-Cloud Monitoring

The ongoing digitalization of various processes leads to a further increase of complexity and heterogenity of IT infrastructures. One key element here are private and public cloud solutions, e.g. VMware, OpenStack, CloudStack, or Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, AWS, and Office 365. Multi-cloud monitoring offered by StableNet helps you to keep an overview of your infrastructure and underlying network.

StableNet® offers holistic multi-cloud monitoring across different vendors and providers – all KPIs in one place seamlessly combined with the well-known unified network and services management.

What cloud management with StableNet® looks like

Think outside the box and adapt multi-cloud monitoring to your specific use cases – three selected examples are provided below.

Multi-Cloud Monitoring Example 1: Office 365 Monitoring

Office 365 Monitoring

This customer dashboard offers an example for Office 365 monitoring. It helps to get a quick overview of processing times and other KPIs for various typical tasks in Office applications, such as Calendar, Contact, Mail, and OneDrive.

Multi-Cloud Monitoring Example 2: AWS Monitoring

AWS Monitoring

In this example, we show a StableNet® WeatherMap with an overview on various AWS KPIs, links between sites, etc. – Among others, StableNet® is measuring CPU Utilization, Disk Read/Write Speeds, and Network In&Out.

Multi-Cloud Monitoring Example 3: Unified SDN, NFV & Cloud Monitoring

Unified SDN, NFV & Cloud

This dashboard shows multi-cloud monitoring integrated in a larger overall context. Public and private clouds (VMware, OpenStack, and AWS) combined with SDN (ONOS, OpenDaylight, OpenFlow) as well as legacy infrastructure.

Benefits of holistic multi-cloud monitoring

Going beyond single data points, monitoring complex processes

Better server monitoring information

StableNet® can be configured on demand to measure all necessary information that is most important at a given point of time, starting from simple “black box” service
availability tests to inside “white box” KPI measurements and SLA compliance checks. Depending on the importance of a given service, parameters can either be measured continuously or on demand in case of first indications of a service level decrease.

Improved, distributed monitoring efficiency

StableNet®‘s very good scalability and the use of distributed StableNet® agents allows to significantly increase the number of reference measurements and the number of monitoring locations. Furthermore, existing “classical” network monitoring information and the new cloud measurements can be correlated to further increase the monitoring efficiency. Altogether, this can increase the possibility to detect and localize problem root causes.

Increased objectivity of KPI measurements

The increase of the number of objective, technically conducted measurements that are independent of any human apprehension increases the objectivity of any quality level estimations. Having access to a continuous source of measurement data from various locations and with a high number of reference values, helps to much better estimate how severe a customer complaint actually has to be treated.

Better anticipation of upcoming problems

The interruption-free availability of measurement information helps to analyze current trends and to recognize early warnings in case of slight quality decreases. This way, instead of conducting urgent actions under high time pressure in case of outages, administrators can anticipate approaching problems and solve many of the problem’s causes before any problem actually appears (and/or is recognized by the customers).

 All technologies under an umbrella

One consolidated view on next-generation and legacy network and services

Multi-Cloud Monitoring with StableNet®

Moving into a multi-cloud with public and private infrastructure parts is becoming a ‘must’ for most companies. Usually business-critical application will be kept in-house whereas standard application will be shifted to the public cloud. Therefore, a vast majority of companies are running a ’hybrid’ cloud strategy.

StableNet® is the perfect solution to put these new technologies under an umbrella together with legacy IT systems in order to ensure business continuity.

Interesting Background Facts about Multi-Cloud Monitoring

Want to know why StableNet® makes the difference?

74% of network managers say they have at least one network monitoring or management tool that has failed to address their public cloud requirements.

45% of them say the public cloud support implemented by their network management tool vendor is too expensive to implement.
