Today’s virtualized data centers are opaque to traditional monitoring approaches and enterprise IT lack the tools to be able to correlate application to infrastructure performance to determine what is causing the application slowdown.
A Data Center’s infrastructure components – CPU, Memory, Network and Storage – may have their own management tools but these tools are incapable of providing visibility to the whole system or correlating that information back to a specific application’s performance. As a result, organizations lack the resources to quickly and efficiently resolve application performance issues and spend the majority of their valuable time engaged in reactive troubleshooting or inter-departmental finger pointing, rather than proactively improving application delivery.
Align Infrastructure Performance Management with Application Performance Management
There is no single tool that provides full stack visibility across applications and infrastructure layers in virtualized data centers. Without this converged visibility, infrastructure performance management team is blind to the very applications that it is tasked to support and provision. On the other hand, business objectives delivered by the applications and managed by the application performance management team are unobserved operational goals and unaligned organizational silos. Uila solves this problem by providing a unified view of application and infrastructure visibiity enabling IT Ops to quickly analyze and identify application performance factors supported by the underlying infrastructure. This results in cross organizational alignment in operations and communication.
Uila identifies application performance bottlenecks for optimization and maximizes the efficiency, performance and reliability of virtualized infrastructure. Performance trends, anomalies and underlying patterns of behavior are identified using powerful big data analytics and trending reports. All of these capabilities improve application reliability and infrastructure performance.
Network Administrators and System Administrators spend enormous amount of time and effort to either determine the root cause of application issues or rule out network/infrastructure problems when these issues occur. Rather than methodically and efficiently identifying root cause to the issue, these teams often have to engage in cumbersome and time consuming troubleshooting process with fragmented and uncorrelated information collected from their siloed tools. Uila delivers immediate root cause identification with correlated, real-time and historical performance evidence of Apps, Networks and Infrastructure information. It also reduces mean time to innocence for the infrastructure team by quickly isolating where the application reliability is root caused to compute, storage or networking components.
