Get Network Visibility Across Your AWS Deployments

The Amazon Web Services (AWS) ecosystem provides an elastic and scalable platform for deploying applications in the AWS cloud. While Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) has simplified the process of migrating workloads to the cloud and promoted the adoption of microservices, it has also changed the dynamics of service delivery and web service monitoring. 

Application performance is dependent on multiple factors in AWS environments, such as latency across availability zones (AZs), availability of S3 buckets, API interactions and DNS resolution. And what about end-user experience? When you don’t control the underlying infrastructure or the connectivity into your services, how can you ensure consistent application performance?

The Cloud-sized Hole in Your Monitoring Stack

Traditional monitoring software practices like SNMP, packet analysis, flow and logs (syslog etc.) work great for an on-premises data center, but they 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 AWS metrics and VPC performance, but it lacks the perspective of end-user experience and doesn’t cover the interconnectivity between AWS networks in different regions that host multi-tiered applications. AWS CloudWatch also doesn’t provide visibility into Internet connectivity to external SaaS services. This creates a visibility blind spot outside of your corporate perimeter, which demands a new monitoring solution for AWS resources.

Monitoring a hybrid infrastructure consisting of internal computing resources and external ones, such as AWS resources, often involves increased complexity. Successful hybrid infrastructure monitoring should have visibility into Internet network connectivity to troubleshoot not only the availability of AWS resources but the performance of the Internet path to get there.

Active Monitoring for Cloud Ecosystems

ThousandEyes uses active monitoring techniques to collect critical performance metrics and visualize delivery paths from your users to the AWS data centers. You can use our AWS application monitoring to view availability, usage and response times correlated with intra-region, inter-region and inter-service network packet loss and latencies and identify performance issues within your cloud or hybrid-cloud environments. Unlike other AWS monitoring tools, ThousandEyes uncovers hidden dependencies across AWS network services like EC2 and S3 to minimize operational risks. You can also monitor and validate availability of external API engines and integrations, perform AWS uptime monitoring, AWS server monitoring, and track other services delivered via the Internet that your AWS-hosted applications rely on.
