Boosting performance with network monitoring solutions

Technological advances and emerging networking concepts are constantly shaping our IT infrastructure. Networks are no longer limited to traditional networking constraints such as its static nature, but are continually evolving to improve efficiency by spanning across wired, wireless, virtual, and hybrid IT environments. This IT evolution drives organizations to advance digitally and support computational requirements to meet their business objectives.


Proactively Monitor VPN Performance for the Hybrid Workforce

A Virtual Private Network, or VPN, allows remote employees to create a secure connection to the corporate network for accessing resources. These connections essentially tunnel from a computer or mobile device through a VPN server, often through the public Internet. VPN technology has been around since the mid-1990s, but its usage is now going mainstream due to Covid.


AWS EC2 Service Discovery with HAProxy

AWS Auto Scaling groups are a powerful tool for creating scaling plans for your application. They let you dynamically create a group of EC2 instances that will maintain a consistent and predictable level of service. HAProxy’s Data Plane API adds a cloud-native method known as Service Discovery to add or remove these instances within a backend in your proxy as scaling events occur. In this article, we’ll take a look at the steps used to integrate this functionality into your workflow.

SAN Performance Monitoring

A Storage Area Network (SAN) is a specialized, high-speed network that provides block-level network access to storage. SANs are typically composed of hosts, switches, storage elements, and storage devices that are interconnected using a variety of technologies, topologies, and protocols. Each computer on the network can access storage on the SAN as if they are local disks connected directly to the computer.


Troubleshoot faster with process-level app and network data

When responding to an incident, you need to quickly find the scope of the issue so you know which teams to notify and which parts of your system to investigate next—before your end users are affected. But as multiple processes use resources on each of your hosts, and interact in unexpected ways, it can be difficult to know exactly what is causing an issue—especially if those processes are running off-the-shelf software.


5 things you can do to improve your customer support (part 2)

From my previous blog, I’m going to continue the list of five things you can do to improve your technical service delivery to your customers (if you didn’t read the last post, you can catch up on what you missed here (link)). In the following three points, I focus on the role automation can play.

The Race to MEC-anize the Mobile Network

Mobile network operators (MNOs) continue to show confidence in the potential of Multi-Access Edge Compute (MEC) and a more open 5G network. At the same time, they face new challenges working in an open ecosystem. MNOs are uniquely positioned to deliver on the full promise of edge computing with end-to-end applications, public cloud infrastructure and hybrid network deployments. In this webinar, you will learn how MNOs can maximize network investments and unlock new revenue streams by leveraging a combination of analytics, orchestration and MEC applications.
