Multicloud Infrastructure Monitoring With UnityOne

Multicloud Infrastructure Monitoring With UnityOne

Introduction 

According to a Gartner study, 92% of enterprises have a multicloud strategy. As a result, rather than becoming simpler, the amount of complexity that IT teams must deal with these days is unprecedented and can only go up. Hybrid and multicloud environments continue to grow more diverse, distributed, and dynamic.  

Business Challenges 

As organizations try to respond to spiraling complexity, they are being stifled by outdated tools and operational processes. Today, too many teams are stuck depending on many disparate monitoring tools from different vendors or loosely integrated product suites. Also, the legacy monitoring approaches haven’t kept pace with the new hybrid and multicloud infrastructure realities, leaving organizations struggling with a range of challenges. Teams must manage a demanding mix of legacy and modern applications and infrastructure. For the teams responsible for monitoring and managing service levels, these complex environments are fueling massive increases in the volume, variety, and velocity of data to be managed. I & O and IT Leaders are under more pressure than ever to deliver maximum value in their infrastructure and Technology investments to the business.
