l SOLUTION BRIEF l E N T E R P R I S E Visibility Without Borders Starts with NETSCOUT Smart Data Solutions for Hybrid Cloud Monitoring In today's digital world, enterprise organizations turn to Amazon Web Services (AWS) to meet users' demands for a fast, seamless, and secure digital experience. AWS uses secure storage, powerful compute, and integrated data analytics to support a new breed of distributed, connected applications, helping businesses cut time to market and improve customer satisfaction. To reap the full benefits of AWS in a hybrid cloud world, companies need to optimize application performance and security. Existing tools can't fill the huge monitoring gap as they are domain specific and unable to deliver seamless, uniform visibility and common situational awareness among the different IT teams. What's more, these tools generate loads of uncorrelated data that obscure and bury performance and security insights that's needed to compete at a breakneck pace. Enterprises running application workloads through hybrid cloud environments, including AWS, need visibility that does not begin and end at each physical boundary – in short, Visibility without Borders. NETSCOUT ® solutions deliver actionable visibility to mitigate service performance issues, threats, and vulnerabilities. NETSCOUT has tools and technologies that make it possible to reduce Mean Time to Knowledge (MTTK), increase Continuous Delivery/ Continuous Integration (CD/CI) velocity, and control service performance and security in IT infrastructures comprised of data centers, co-locations and clouds. Solution Overview NETSCOUT uses the industry's most scalable, lightweight distributed architecture to generate Smart Data. Through continuous monitoring and by capturing all wire data (traffic flows) traversing the hybrid cloud environment - performing simultaneous deep-packet inspection and real-time analysis - NETSCOUT generates Smart Data at its point of collection. You also gain a centralized view into the performance characteristics of all infrastructure and application components and their dependencies across geographically dispersed data centers and cloud environments. With valuable and timely intelligence into application performance and security, you can proactively find and fix errors, latencies, and threats before they become service delivery problems. NETSCOUT solutions let you migrate workloads to AWS with confidence, providing a foundation for common situational awareness for NetOps, SecOps and other IT groups by monitoring a variety of availability, reliability, responsiveness and threat metrics - making them easily accessible in real time to the right team members with custom views relevant to their function. Actionable visibility from NETSCOUT allows you to take full advantage of AWS capabilities. NETSCOUT Solutions Allow Enterprise IT Teams To: • Accelerate deployments of services into AWS while assuring business continuity. • Achieve end-user experience objectives and swift issue resolution for application services with Smart Data and smart analytics from NETSCOUT. • Empower collaboration between enterprises and AWS as they work together to achieve business goals. • Quick time to value with easy to deploy and easy to manage approach of services available on AWS Marketplace.
