Optimize Performance

Any business that generates revenues online is a global business and needs to consider the tools available to make the internet a competitive advantage. Knowing the real-time state of your public internet performance is critical in the highly competitive global business environment. Where are the internet latency issues? What is global availability and reachability like? How is the real-world performance of end users? Understanding your connections – through insights and having controls to improve performance — is the only way to optimize performance and mitigate risks in your network.

IDC research suggests that by the end of 2016, more than 65 percent of IT enterprises will have adopted a hybrid cloud configuration and spending on infrastructure for cloud environments will reach $38.2 billion.

Hybrid cloud environments reduce costs, increase flexibility and scalability and greatly improve network performance. But IT executives need the right tools to monitor and control their cloud infrastructure to maximize these positive impacts and mitigate security threats.

In this slideshow, Gary Sloper, vice president of global solutions engineering at Dyn, has identified eight reasons for the enterprise to improve visibility and control into their global internet and cloud assets.
