Container adoption continues to grow as organizations look to transition from virtual machines to microservices-based architectures, known for their increased efficiency, portability, and scalability. But while containers afford an additional layer of security through their ability to isolate applications, a containerized environment is still susceptible to malicious attacks between containers or the within the shared resources of the underlying host.
Download this eBook to learn how you can develop a stronger security strategy for your AWS container deployments, from start to finish. Key takeaways include:
• Planning for maximum portability
• Setting permissions for users and system resources
• Creating an action plan based on log monitoring and IDS data

Highly complex IT environment with multi-tier application architectures delivering apps and services, detecting and diagnosing code level performance problems can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. While it may be plain to the end user that there is a problem, understanding where that problem originates and exactly what is causing it is difficult, and time consuming. Riverbed OPNET AppInternals Xpert addresses this challenge by combining end-user experience, transaction tracing, and application component monitoring for deep end-to-end application visibility. This latest release facilitates bi-directional workflows between operations and application development to expedite problem resolution. Register to read the full report.
VoIP’s extreme sensitivity to delay and packet loss compared to other network applications
such as web and e-mail services, presents a real challenge. A basic understanding of VoIP traffic
and of the quality metrics provided by VoIP monitoring tools will help keep your network
running smoothly. Follow our 10 VoIP best practices to ensure quality service for your network.
As enterprises become more distributed and migrate applications to the cloud, they will need to diversify
their network performance management solutions. In particular, the network operations team will need to
complement its packet-based monitoring tools with active test monitoring solutions to enhance visibility into
the cloud and help enterprises scale monitoring gracefully and cost-effectively.

OpenShift-Kubernetes offers an excellent automated application deployment
framework for container-based workloads. Services such as traffic management
(load balancing within a cluster and across clusters/regions), service discovery,
monitoring/analytics, and security are a critical component of an application
deployment framework. Enterprises require a scalable, battle-tested, and robust
services fabric to deploy business-critical workloads in production environments.
This whitepaper provides an overview of the requirements for such application
services and explains how Avi Networks provides a proven services fabric to
deploy container based workloads in production environments using OpenShift-
Lured by opportunities to speed innovation, reduce costs and enhance agility, many business executives are opting to move their organization’s applications into public cloud environments. Whether or not organizations realize these advantages to the fullest extent possible will in part be dictated by the monitoring capabilities in place. This paper offers a detailed look at the monitoring challenges cloud environments can pose, and it examines the key approaches = organizations need to take to foster maximum service levels, efficiency and agility in the cloud.
In today’s application economy, market success is increasingly being defined by an organization’s ability to deliver multi-channel applications that provide an exceptional and differentiated customer experience. To deliver the service levels required, IT teams need to move to establish proactive IT monitoring approaches. This white paper offers an overview of the key requirements that must be met for IT teams to establish effective proactive monitoring capabilities.
IDC's research shows that, worldwide, over 70% of enterprise cloud users currently rely on multiple clouds (public and/or private) to support a wide range of applications and workloads. Efficient management of these resources depends on IT operations and DevOps teams having access to consistent, accurate infrastructure performance monitoring data and reporting that span the full set of on-premise cloud infrastructure and public cloud IaaS services. CA Technologies recently announced new capabilities for CA Unified Infrastructure Management (CA UIM) that allow the product to more fully address the monitoring needs of complex multicloud infrastructure as part of delivering on CA's vision to fully enable the agile DevOps in the application economy.
Welcome to the very first edition of Modern Monitoring, a collection of articles and insights designed to help IT operations and DevOps professionals deliver more resilient, supportable and high-performance IT services.
It’s perhaps a sign of the times that monitoring as a discipline is receiving much more attention within the biz tech community. And deservedly so. The new distributed application architectures being built, together with the dizzying pace of software delivery, demand new approaches in what’s traditionally been perceived as a “keeping the lights on” IT practice.
Of course, there’s no better way to consider monitoring than to draw parallels with other practices in related fields. It’s why we’ve included a couple of pieces with a distinct aeronautical flavor that discuss importance of instrumentation and contextual awareness.
This infographic looks at Software Engineers who do awesome ops, ensuring millions of users having super-fast and reliable service from today’s massively complex systems!
We look at the key skills and tools required in Modern monitoring and analytics:
-Full Stack Visibility
-Data- Driven Insights
Put your SRE Teams in the Driver's Seat with a new model for application monitoring.
