NetApp® Cloud Insights brings observability to the BlueXP control plane. It is easy to deploy and use. Map complex infrastructures and gain X-ray vision into the performance and utilization of multivendor hybrid cloud workloads. The truth is out there—discover it now.
Modern infrastructures typically include on-premises technology from a mix of vendors and rely on multiple cloud providers. But no matter where all your servers, VMs, and storage live, they all add up to one (potentially complex) hybrid multicloud environment. The big takeaway? Your ability to see and understand the big picture and connect the dots between resources and issues is crucial to maintaining security, performance, and cost control.
Inefficiencies, wasted space, and idle resources are cloud-budget-eating zombies that commonly account for 32% of cloud spend.
The problem is that too many monitoring tools are vendor specific or lack key mapping or troubleshooting capabilities, leaving you with more blind spots than a mirrorless 18-wheeler in rush-hour traffic. Does this mean that multiple monitoring tools are the only answer in hybrid clouds? Only if you like wasting time.
Full visibility is provided into every corner of your hybrid cloud environment so that you can keep moving forward with confidence. Need an inventory of all on-premises and cloud resources and their interdependencies? You got it. Would real-time data visualization of infrastructure-wide availability, performance, and utilization be helpful for troubleshooting, keeping customers happy, and controlling costs? Enjoy the power of a unified view. Worried about setup time or challenges? Set it and forget it with easy-to-use, SaaS-based simplicity.
Even for administrators who eat complexity for breakfast, figuring out how one component impacts another in your hybrid infrastructure is a big ask. Fortunately, the machine learning employed by the observability service is virtually insatiable. It automatically builds topologies to correlate metrics. And it constantly monitors for greedy or degraded resources and resource contention—all without “screaming” at you with unnecessary alerts, thanks to easy and precise customization.
Start monitoring fast with ONTAP Essentials, a feature for all editions of Cloud Insights. It provides a set of pre-configured set of dashboards and workflows that provide detailed views into your NetApp ONTAP health, inventories, workloads, and data protection, including days-to-full predictions for storage capacity and performance. All without the need for user intervention. Start collecting storage metrics immediately.
From holding your intellectual property hostage, stealing it outright or just deleting your data, bad guys are out for your data. And regulators are waiting in the wings to levy steep fines for compliance missteps. Machine learning is used to analyze data access patterns and keep you a step ahead with:
What sounds better, a different monitoring tool for every resource, or a single tool that can see across all your on-premises and cloud-based infrastructure? Thought so. From the public cloud to the data center, Cloud Insights delivers full-stack visibility of infrastructure and applications from hundreds of collectors in one place. You get:
Think there are no good tools for dropping into Kubernetes clusters to find problems and inefficiencies? Think again. Simple views of clusters are provided, making it easier to spot and fix issues.
The thing about the hybrid multicloud is that it’s easy to deploy but hard to optimize. Especially when you consider the performance versus cost tradeoffs you have to make to meet the needs of your developers and operations teams. So how can you strike the right balance and avoid getting blindsided by unnecessarily high costs? Cloud Insights gives you a clear window into inefficiencies.
When you’re dealing with complex hybrid infrastructures, different teams naturally have lots of questions. Do I need to look at on-prem, cloud or both? Many monitoring tools require specialized training or skills, even though monitoring complex environments isn’t just one or two people's jobs—it’s everyone’s. Cloud Insights customers find that it quickly becomes their favorite go-to tool supporting both on-prem and the multicloud from the same console. With SaaS-based Cloud Insights, whether used separately or integrated into the unified BlueXP control plane, there's no software to install and maintain, updates are transparent, and virtually anyone can gain insights quickly thanks to an easy-to-use dashboard gallery.
Alerts are great… when they’re relevant. Otherwise, they quickly become distracting informational "white noise." Make sure that the alerts people receive matter, with easy customization in Cloud Insights.
