Why Network Load Balancer Monitoring is Critical

Your networks are the highways that enable data transfers and cloud-based collaboration. Like highways connect people to physical locations, networks connect people to applications and databases. As you would look up the fastest route between two physical locations, your workforce members need the fastest connectivity between two digital locations. Network load balancers enable you to prevent and identify digital “traffic jams” by redistributing incoming network requests across your servers.

Business Intelligence and Log management - Opportunities and challenges

Business intelligence (BI) is all about making sense of huge amounts of data to extract meaningful and actionable insights out of it. Log management tools such as Graylog, instead, are the perfect solution to streamline data collection and analysis, so it’s easy to understand how these two technologies can make sense when they’re coupled together.
