8 Reasons the Enterprise Needs More Visibility into the Cloud

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

    Scale with Confidence

    As enterprises continue to migrate more assets to the cloud, shift assets by need or by region and manage assets based on cost and performance, it becomes imperative to have a toolkit that gives insights and control into the public internet. Using an advanced DNS-based traffic management solution with geo-location or an internet performance management tool can provide insight and control so that scaling is done intelligently to maximize performance and optimize spend.

    Finally, the shift many clients are undertaking by replacing private vrf MPLS WANs with Public IPSEC WANs is occurring, but how do you deploy it with confidence? Simply performing traceroutes over a short time does not truly indicate or predict if you can scale in a public WAN. Using performance management tools to manage these decisions prior to contract signature and to optimize your network post-implementation allows clients to maximize efficiency, which is critical when departing off a private MPLS network with fast LSPs.

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.
