With more businesses taking a multi-cloud approach, Kentik announced a new tool to gain insights into public and private cloud deployments. Kentik's Hybrid Map gives NetOps teams a single, unified view into the topology of their traffic flows, network performance and device health between multi-clouds, on premise and internet infrastructures.
Using Hybrid Maps with the Kentik Network Intelligence Platform enables NetOps teams to gain immediate insights into their hybrid network deployments in order to find and fix issues at a faster rate.
According to a recent report by Kentik, 58% of the business professionals in a survey reported using more than one of the three biggest cloud service providers, which are comprised of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.
The Kentik Network Intelligence Platform provides integration with flow data from public clouds, host-level instrumentation, virtual network appliances, and incorporates container orchestration metadata.
With the addition of Hybrid Map, Kentik blends the infrastructure views to provide a more holistic level of understanding about networks. Kentik said Hybrid Map increases the ability to visually interact with the network while still preserving the underlying query, analytics and anomaly detection capabilities of Kentik.
"Breaking the boundaries of the traditional data center often means broken network monitoring. For network professionals running hybrid infrastructures, Kentik offers the only solution that paints a complete picture of this new reality from container to cloud," said Christoph Pfister, chief product officer of Kentik, in a statement. "Organizations struggle to visualize their hybrid environments, especially when they incorporate container networking overlays. With the new Hybrid Map from Kentik, network teams can finally have that picture on their screen, with complete visibility into real-time and historical health, performance, and traffic data."
