ThousandEyes Scans Multi-Cloud Performance

In the cloud, as with real estate, location is paramount. Applications need to be located near their users to ensure fast responsiveness, whether the users are people or devices on the Internet of Things.

ThousandEyes is looking to help enterprises find the best cloud real estate with the introduction of Network Intelligence, launched Thursday. The service enables enterprises to monitor application performance on Amazon Web Services Inc. , Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud at particular locations. Enterprises can then decide the best cloud platform and geographic region to locate performance-sensitive applications, Ameet Naik, ThousandEyes technical marketing manager, tells Light Reading.

"All the traditional monitoring services do a great job within your own walls," Naik says. Network Intelligence goes beyond those walls into multiple public clouds.

ThousandEyes has software agents located in public cloud data centers in 160 cities around the world. The company can also put agents inside an enterprise's own environment to monitor private cloud applications. Public cloud coverage includes all major cloud regions: 15 each for AWS and Google, and 25 for Azure.

About the Author(s)

Mitch Wagner

Executive Editor, Light Reading

San Diego-based Mitch Wagner is many things. As well as being "our guy" on the West Coast (of the US, not Scotland, or anywhere else with indifferent meteorological conditions), he's a husband (to his wife), dissatisfied Democrat, American (so he could be President some day), nonobservant Jew, and science fiction fan. Not necessarily in that order.

He's also one half of a special duo, along with Minnie, who is the co-habitor of the West Coast Bureau and Light Reading's primary chewer of sticks, though she is not the only one on the team who regularly munches on bark.

Wagner, whose previous positions include Editor-in-Chief at Internet Evolution and Executive Editor at InformationWeek, will be responsible for tracking and reporting on developments in Silicon Valley and other US West Coast hotspots of communications technology innovation.

Beats: Software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), IP networking, and colored foods (such as 'green rice').
