Monitoring a modern-day hybrid cloud environment
Adopting a hybrid cloud model provides IT teams with the advantage of on-premises infrastructure, the flexibility of the private cloud, and the scalability and cost-effectiveness of the public cloud. However, maintaining a hybrid cloud infrastructure requires you to monitor a complex spread of resources and applications, making monitoring a challenging pursuit. This whitepaper discusses the challenges of managing a hybrid cloud with a list of best practices for monitoring it.
Most enterprises are in the middle of their cloud migration journey, and 83 percent of enterprise workloads will be in the cloud by 2020, according to research by HostingTribunal. Of the enterprises that are migrating, many are choosing a hybrid cloud strategy. The combined on-premises and public cloud architecture benefits organizations by maximizing cost savings and addressing security concerns. For a successful digital transformation journey, organizations also need to implement full-stack monitoring of their hybrid cloud environment. The biggest challenge is finding a monitoring tool that oers complete visibility across the entire hybrid cloud architecture. This white paper discusses the essentials for adopting a hybrid cloud strategy, as well as the components that need to be monitored.
VMware performance and storage monitoring
Scaling up your VMware monitoring is a challenging game. IT teams have to constantly diagnose performance issues, rationalize their VM sprawl, and visualize their dynamic deployments to troubleshoot, manage, and cut costs. Read this whitepaper to understand why IT teams need an observability platform like Site24x7 to monitor their VMware deployments. Learn how Site24x7's detailed graphs and dashboards go beyond the default vSphere metrics provided onboard, to help observe all their VMware deplo
VMware virtualizes servers and consolidates resource allocation and usage. However, to reap the full benefits of this technology, it's important to understand the challenges surrounding VMware to overcome them and fully optimize their use. For this, it is necessary to understand the architecture of VMware resources, their usage, and performance at every step. To build a successful virtual environment, you have to first observe, understand, and evaluate the current trends and performance of your IT infrastructure, and then plan resource allocation for the future based on this analysis. This whitepaper illustrates the need to monitor different CPU, memory, disk, and network metrics and explains how these metrics provide visibility to your virtual environment. It will also discuss how each of them is important to eliminate over-commitment and under-provisioning.
Why devops should be devsecops
Most people have heard of DevOps, but DevSecOps is still quite new. The “Sec” in the middle of “DevOps” obviously stands for “security.” This article will explore what DevOps and DevSecOps mean, and why you should consider integrating DevSecOps practices in your organization.
Considering security at every step of IT development, and not as a mere afterthought to development, is the key to the success of every organization's IT team. Security should shift left and be thoroughly integrated with DevOps practices from the get go. A new coinage that’s gaining rapid adoption, DevSecOps ensures adequate security training, ensures seamless communication, and enforces security at every stage of the software life cycle.

Read this e-book to learn the uniqueness, necessity, practices, and benefits of DevSecOps for IT teams.
Cloud monitoring guide
Cloud monitoring is creating a lot of buzz in the IT world. The exponential increase in data generation has propelled several businesses to make a shift to the cloud. But what does it mean to run an organization in a cloud-based environment? What do organizations have to do to ensure that their data is well managed, monitored, and safe? In this article, we will address these questions and give you a head start on the technicalities and processes of cloud monitoring.
Monitoring cloud systems is a common challenge for IT teams. To breakdown the complex relationships between IT infrastructures, applications, customers, and businesses, companies need a thorough understanding of their unique IT needs. A good understanding of their IT challenges will help them choose the most appropriate IT monitoring platform to ensure a company's sustainability and growth.

This e-book provides insights into the different types of cloud computing along with the key metrics and logging challenges involved in monitoring cloud systems.
Chaos engineering: Injecting failure to test resilience
Principles of Chaos described chaos engineering as the practice of carrying out experiments like fault injections on a system, for the sake of building confidence in the system’s resilience and ability to withstand turbulent conditions in the production environment. This article will describe the principles of chaos engineering, starting with its history and similar concepts.
Chaos engineering is an emerging practice of resilience testing in IT development. By deliberately injecting failures and errors into a system and monitoring the response, IT development teams can gain confidence in a software system’s ability to withstand real-time chaos (unexpected situations). Chaos engineering helps prevent outages, cut costs, eliminate fault lines, and build confidence in managing any system.

Read this e-book to learn about the principles of chaos engineering, the tools and resources used, and an example involving a Kubernetes application.
