For many companies, preparing for a digital future means adopting next-gen infrastructures such as multi-cloud environments. In fact, a recent study found that 53 percent of respondents consider hybrid and multi-cloud deployments to be their preferred data center architecture. However, such a change entails some foundational shifts in both deploying and supporting applications.
The VMware NSX environment is a key element here, as it allows organizations to consistently and securely automate application and network deployment across the virtualized infrastructure. NSX is truly game-changing, providing simplified management, micro-segmentation security, provisioning agility, and improved data center economics. By providing accelerated service velocity, enhanced security, and rapid disaster recovery, this advanced environment delivers on the promise of successful data center transformation.
Solving Fragmented Visibility
One of the biggest obstacles to multicloud success lies in the lack of visibility into application dependencies and end-user experience across different environments. Unfortunately, most businesses rely on a grab-bag of application and network performance monitoring tools that use fragmented, low-resolution data. This, in turn, creates blind spots, making it difficult for IT organizations to precisely identify the root cause of a performance issue. Instead, business and technology teams, along with key providers, find themselves pointing fingers at each other..
What is truly needed to get the job done—and minimize end-user impact—is a service assurance solution that eliminates such gaps and blind spots, providing end-to-end visibility that can scale across VMware ESX, NSX, and SD-WAN deployments, including multi-cloud environments.
A platform approach
Effectively managing risk and building next-gen platforms for digital transformation requires companies to apply an equally innovative strategy for application performance monitoring and troubleshooting. For this, you need an advanced visibility and troubleshooting analytics platform that provides continuous, unified, reliable data to identify potential risks and performance status of applications and workloads, regardless of whether they reside on physical servers, software, or public-cloud instances.
