Continuous discovery for the continuous win
Far from a one-and-done scenario, intelligent discovery is about creating continuous visibility that paves the road for greater security, availability, and performance—and doing it all with costs in mind. Effective monitoring tools enable you to recognize trends in the virtual environment and to plan for growth.
Step one of discovery is canvassing your environment—uncovering everything you have across your data centers and cloud, turning over every rock to find shadow IT, and orphaned resources. The key is setting up your environments for continuous discovery. Tagging and consistent taxonomies are essential to any monitoring strategy, as is the ability to create a variety of dashboards that offer the right person the right overview to make (the right) decisions, answer big questions, and generate reports.
Automated monitoring tools built into your data fabric help you meet the challenges of a burgeoning hybrid ecosystem by drastically cutting down the number of control planes used to monitor and manage your infrastructure.
Continuous discovery delivers insights into your infrastructure that you didn't think that you could get from the data itself. And the best part? You don't need a baker’s dozen of control panels to do it.
