8 Reasons the Enterprise Needs More Visibility into the Cloud

  • 8 Reasons the Enterprise Needs More Visibility into the Cloud-

    Ensure Global Availability

    Global companies need reachability and availability on a global scale. Enterprises need to ensure that the end-user experience is equal no matter where or when a customer accesses a website, app or content. It's important to ask yourself: Can my services be seen from the internet and are my partners able to connect with my services?

    Enterprises need to understand the constant state of the global internet not only in their largest markets, but in regions with fewer assets or customers. A company's brand is based on a predictable, consistent experience, and this needs to translate via online and mobile. Sure-fire ways to ensure global availability include distributing hosting on multiple cloud vendor sites, using secondary DNS, and implementing tools that monitor your global network to determine load levels.

A massive migration to the cloud has been underway for the better part of the past decade, but the number of enterprises with hybrid configurations may be reaching a tipping point. 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. And it's clear from Dyn's proprietary research that every company in the Fortune 100 has a cloud asset. 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.
