The Internet is increasingly complex and routinely experiences outages, instabilities, and attacks. While cloud providers, CDNs, and acceleration services may claim to be always available, that doesn’t mean that they’re “always reachable.” In fact, they are almost certainly experiencing a constant rate of low-level failure that is largely outside of your control yet is still impacting your users. But what Internet performance management tools are available to help you obtain visibility and shorten the mean time to innocence? What’s going on right now in the CDN, cloud, and Internet transit performance space?
Phil Stanhope and Nicolas Brousse explore why enterprises need to arm themselves with the right tools to detect and remediate problems and protect their Internet-connected assets.
