Xangati Extends Cloud Service Assurance Analytics and Performance Control to AWS, Azure and Docker

Grazed from Xangati

Xangati today announced three new data-source compute extensions to its best-in-class service assurance analytics and performance control platform - the only live, cross-silo intelligence and IT efficiency solution engineered for hybrid-cloud infrastructures. With support for Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Docker, Xangati's virtual appliance software will correlate real-time data across on-premise virtualisation, containers and public clouds to enable self-healing optimisation.

Hybrid-cloud infrastructures are designed to accommodate multiple applications, a shared or converged physical layer and a software-defined layer, all of which expose the dynamic data centre to higher risk of unpredictable performance problems and resource inefficiency. But conventional infrastructure monitoring solutions are silo-specific and application unaware, while application performance management (APM) solutions alone are inadequate as they are largely infrastructure unaware.
