Network Monitoring For Amazon Web Services

Application-aware network monitoring for your AWS deployments.

Network Visibility Across Your AWS Network Deployments

Amazon Web Services provides an elastic and scalable platform for deploying applications in the cloud. While IaaS has simplified the process of migrating workloads to the cloud and promoted a micro-services architecture, it has changed dynamics of service delivery and monitoring. Application performance is dependent on multiple factors such as latency across AZ's, availability of S3 buckets, API interactions and DNS resolution. What about end-user experience? When you don't control the underlying infrastructure or the connectivity into your AWS network services, how can you guarantee performance?

Traditional monitoring practices like SNMP, packet analysis and syslog work great for an on-prem data center, but flatline in a public-cloud environment like AWS where there is limited visibility and ability to instrument. AWS Cloudwatch, for AWS cloud monitoring, can provide insights into VPC performance but it lacks the perspective of end-user experience or the interconnectivity between different AWS networks in different regions that host multi-tiered applications. We call this a visibility blindspot. Solutions you have typically relied don't address the visibility blindspot, so we came up with our unique solution.

ThousandEyes uses active monitoring techniques to collect critical performance metrics and visualize delivery paths from your users all the way into the AWS data centers. You can see application response times correlated with intra-region and inter-region latencies and identify performance bottlenecks within your cloud environment. You can also validate availability of API engines and other services your AWS-hosted application relies on. Uncover hidden dependencies across AWS network services like EC2 and S3 to minimize operational risks.

Take advantage of our global network of Cloud Agents located in 175+ locations and within 15 AWS regions and understand end-user performance of your applications. With Enterprise Agents located within your VPCs, monitor regional service dependencies, troubleshoot hybrid architecture snags and visualize bidirectional network paths. The cloud might be murky, but don't let it fog your cloud migration strategies.
