Monitoring Before, During and After Migration

It’s essential that your applications perform as well in the cloud as they did on-premises. IT teams see better results when monitoring of the IT environment is a proactive part of the day-to-day operations and development. In order to successfully migrate to the cloud, you must have full visibility into the performance of your platform. Any migration process can involve complicated steps, but continuous monitoring before, during and after migration can make it a more seamless experience.

Monitoring your existing IT environment is key to right-sizing your new environment. Simply measuring cloud service availability isn’t enough. Organizations also need to measure consumption levels, the impact of cloud service access on the rest of the infrastructure, and cloud-based resources. This will help to account for the right resources throughout the migration process.

An important aspect of any monitoring tool is the ability to measure different parts of your application. This is especially important for distributed systems, which can suffer slow overall performance due to high CPU utilization prolonging computation, poor indexing strategy, or insufficient RAM. Because so many problems can arise, monitoring provides additional information to avoid the issue or to find a solution.

Our engineers understand what it takes to deliver a cloud that’s secure, reliable, fast and flexible – which explains why Connectria is consistently rated in the top 10 worldwide in public Cloud performance. And Connectria has never experienced a data center or Cloud outage, nor a loss of Cloud data. That’s a claim most of our competitors can’t make.

Connectria can monitor customer applications at the individual business transaction level, providing code-level visibility and end-to-end transaction tracing. This allows customers to improve costs and efficiency surrounding the creation, deployment and management of applications. If you are interested in migrating to the Amazon or Azure Cloud, and want more information on monitoring and managing your environment, please contact us.
