What fun is network observability if you can’t share what you see? That’s why we’ve added public link sharing to the Kentik platform.
One of the greater missions of network observability is to break the boundaries of conventional monitoring. At Kentik, we focused our initial efforts on making complex infrastructure problems easy to visualize, understand and resolve. Now we’re tackling a follow-up mandate: to democratize network observability.
With public link sharing, you can share secured public links to visualizations of your Data Explorer and Synthetics workflow — with anyone you want. Just look for that familiar “Share” button to get started!
Public link sharing also comes with the bells and whistles, including:
Think about the possibilities unlocked by link sharing your visualizations. For example, the infrastructure team’s “Mean Time to Innocence” (you’ll want to call it MTTI) will greatly benefit from it.
Being able to share a specific slice of what you can see in Kentik will help foster collaboration and transparency and help break down silos with external vendors, the media, other internal parties, and even customers and prospects. That includes being able to:
Beyond these use cases, we’re looking forward to seeing what other creative uses you’ll find for public link sharing. So, in the spirit of sharing, share the love, and tell us how you’re using it!
While testing this new feature, the team here at Kentik came up with a few creative ideas of our own for public link sharing. Here are a few for inspiration:
Our customers have been asking for this feature, but enabling the sharing of selected-Kentik views to those who don’t have access to the service isn’t trivial. We understand that certain data will always be confidential and shouldn’t be shared. That data has been removed from shared views.
With this first feature set around public link sharing hitting your browsers, our minds are already full of ideas to take this further. And there’s already a long slate of iterations to come, so stay tuned.
To keep making Kentik your go-to network observability platform, we’d love to hear your feedback once you’ve kicked the tires. Or, as our product team always says, “The future of this feature set is mostly in your hands, so tell us what you’d like!”
