Top 3 gotchas in AWS, and how network observability helps you avoid them As you transition apps and services to the cloud, whether fully public or hybrid, the networking component quickly gets complicated. Your team not only has to manage on-premises networking, but also cloud networks now - which requires a different approach to handle things like VPCs and connectivity back to on-prem environments and other clouds. Poor performance and high costs can quickly hinder cloud projects from being successful.

Organizations are adopting cloud in a big way. Some went whole hog right away, but most took a hybrid approach for security, compliance, or just to move more cautiously. No matter the reason, hybrid clouds can leave network pros a little, well, foggy. No longer can you see, fix, and run your network across your data center, private clouds, public clouds, and SaaS. Ai ai ai! Never fear! Read this short white paper on how to achieve network observability nirvana in your hybrid cloud.
