GAIN A BIRD'S-EYE VIEW OF YOUR SDN ENVIRONMENT
KNOW APP PERFORMANCE TO AUGMENT EXPERIENCE
REDUCE COSTS TO MANAGE SDN WITH NICHE SKILLS
Take control of your software-defined network, monitor remote work and offices, implement changes faster, cheaper, and with expert guidance. Deliver consistent performance that maps back to business goals by correlating network metrics, visualizing flow topology, and optimizing end-user experience.
ENHANCE SDN AND SD-WAN
Netenrich monitors your network’s and application’s performance and collects data for administrators to review and catch issues quickly. Automatically identify incident patterns and instantly alert the appropriate personnel.
KNOW YOUR APPLICATIONS
Gain end-to-end visibility into application flow topology and monitor packet loss, jitters, and latency issues impacting performance. Understand the behavior of your high-priority applications for faster root-cause analysis.
LOW PERFORMANCE DUE TO POOR VISIBILITY
Software-defined networks are managed independently by proprietary, internal, purpose-built firmware – leading to fragile operations where changes require large amounts of time and costs. Limited monitoring capabilities for software-defined network management and lack of vendor-agnostic monitoring skills lead to blind spots.
- With software-defined wide area networks (SD-WAN), all network flows and paths don’t need to go through a central data center.
- Guaranteeing wide area network performance proves more challenging across Remote Office and Branch Office (ROBO) networks and distributed workforces.
- It is easier to add another path to the public internet to solve ROBO performance issues than it is to troubleshoot problems.
- Software-defined network management covers software-based traffic analysis, centralized control, global views of the network, and dynamic updating of forwarding rules, making it easier to detect and react to distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.
Enable SDN monitoring
Software-defined management may split application workloads across virtual machines that can be moved across the data center, or spun up and down. Netenrich lets you dig deeper into device behavior with granular insights and uncover performance blind spots.
Automate data analysis across ROBO, reducing time, expense, and complexities of investigating blind spots manually throughout your distributed offices.
Collect and view performance data on a single screen to identify issues before they affect remote workers.
Leverage vendor-agnostic custom scripts to monitor device resources and performance.
Configure devices smartly
Manual configurations are time-consuming and costly. Predefined configuration templates automate slow and repetitive tasks and mask complexity by eliminating the need to go into specifics. By simply selecting target elements, the template automatically applies the appropriate configurations.
Accurately configure edge devices with specific templates and scripts using API calls.
Reduce manual and centralized configuration efforts with automated management of devices and service workflows.
Automatically spot missing patches and avoid invalid deployment using a template-based change approval process.
Reduce significant costs
Software-defined network monitoring requires niche network skills — both dynamic and multi-vendor agnostic— that are difficult and expensive to acquire. Netenrich’s network engineers are software fluent and apply automation to help enterprises navigate the software-defined world.
Solve problems within the network before or after they arise with expert skills and dedicated troubleshooting recommendations.
Make superior purchase decisions related to hardware with our vendor-aware engineers.
Minimize the cost of security breaches in your software-defined environment with expert-guided reports on blind spots and recommendations for deploying and maintaining firewalls.
INFERIOR APPLICATION EXPERIENCE
The inability to efficiently route traffic between links to optimize bandwidth, cost, and performance for applications leads to poor quality of experience (QoE). Netenrich helps you know the bandwidth consumption of your applications, view the topology, and maintain app performance.
- Software-defined network gives managers end-to-end visibility over individual application flows.
- Network virtualization uses application-aware routing capabilities and utilizes any available transport (dynamic path selection) to maintain SLAs.
- Addition of new applications, with or without the permission of IT, creates an unpredictable application environment.
- Gain better awareness by layering components and providing a central point for orchestrating network and application performance.
Network engineers grapple with a lack of visibility into how much bandwidth specific applications consume and how well they are performing. Our monitoring solutions put context to packet loss, jitters, and latency metrics by combining them with application path analysis.
Help your team view both tunnels and the applications using these tunnels to determine performance issues and correlate them with business-critical apps.
Enhance predictive and capacity monitoring like packet loss, jitter, and latency to prevent performance degradation.
Enable proactive monitoring of application bandwidth and traffic analysis via custom scripts using API calls.
Visualize flow topology
Legacy monitoring solutions only visualize the physical topology and the underlying connected servers, switches, router, or edge devices. Netenrich helps perceive not only the physical topology but also the application flow topology on top of the physical architecture.
Enable your network operations team to see the entire path of your application’s traffic in real-time.
Control where and under what circumstances an application transaction uses a specific service to protect business-critical application performance.
Dynamically adjust application flows based on real-time network conditions so that high-value apps don’t suffer.
Lack of active path testing raises performance issues and creates bottlenecks in your software-defined wide area network tunnels. Enable active path testing to detect problems outside normal work hours when there is not much critical application traffic.
Gain guidance on behavior of high-priority applications concerning flow path and view patterns such to predict anomalies and faster root cause analysis.
Track application queries, expensive statements, response times, failures, page faults, and other KPIs.
Optimize bandwidth resources via compression and deduplication techniques to ensure optimal application performance.
