Migrating apps, data, and workloads to the cloud has allowed organizations to focus resources on agility, flexibility, and innovation—while avoiding capital expenditure. Compute, storage, middleware, or entire stacks can be provisioned on-demand without the hassle of managing the delivery infrastructure. Unsurprisingly fully 96% of companies are using the cloud today and 81% have a multi-cloud strategy. But giving up dedicated data centers and moving to multi-tenant environments comes with its own risks and pitfalls.
Did it work? Not only is application visibility necessary for bookending performance before and after a migration, the ability to accurately assess and map your application environment and dependencies can help avert future risk while still in the planning phase.
The modern app environment is in a risky state of constant flux. With frequent release schedules and transient cloud/container resources, high definition monitoring and profiling is necessary for proactively identifying and addressing issues before they impact end users.
In a multi-cloud world of composable microservices-based applications, container orchestration platforms, and a multitude of data sources and tools, Cloud/DevOps teams need to simplify monitoring and reduce administrative overhead across the cloud-native ecosystem.
Validate and communicate success by comparing end user experience before and after the migration to show improvements in service. Assess usage profiles and track adoption to determine the most important candidates for migration.
Identify unusual performance behavior and optimize apps before, during and after your cloud migration. Be proactive with comprehensive app profiling during dev/test and automated anomaly detection in production. Quickly resolve issues well before business is impacted.
Accurately map complex dependencies and get full visibility into transactions running on modern cloud and app infrastructure, including Docker, Kubernetes, Pivotal, Red Hat OpenShift, OpenStack, Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure.
IT is often responsible for the performance of business apps they don’t control, such as O365, Skype for Business, and Microsoft Teams. Get the end user and app visibility you need to track usage and adoption, isolate issues to the app, network, or user device, and hold third party SaaS vendors accountable to SLAs based on the performance your users actually experience.
Aternity was used to benchmark pre-migration performance for comparison against the new multi-cloud infrastructure. In conjunction with the EUEM solution, the APM solution has been a “lifeline” that isolates back-end performance issues to an application tier or a hardware deficiency.
