Kentik - Network Flow Analytics

Hosting and Cloud Infrastructure

Huge and growing fast, the hosting and cloud market is intensely competitive. As customers demand ever-higher performance, convenience, and security, you can’t afford a commodity mindset. Instead, start seeing your network as a rich resource for technical and business intelligence. Network traffic analytics from Kentik help you optimize performance, gain critical operational and capital efficiencies, and launch differentiated services that generate new revenue.
  • “For less than the support costs of our previous appliance-based tool, Kentik provides us with a far-stronger solution that powers a new level network visibility, scale, and security for our customers.”
    Ian McClarty, President, phoenixNAP
  • “Kentik gives us a level of visibility within our infrastructure that we just didn’t have before, and which we didn’t find in any other approach that we considered or evaluated.”
    Steve Dejong, Network Architect
  • We now know immediately if we have a security or performance problem. We know when there are spikes or drops in traffic for a client, and we can quickly investigate to understand the cause. We can tie network traffic events to specific carriers or infrastructure components, and ultimately, better support our customers. With Kentik in place, we have full visibility into our network traffic.
    Danny Fuentes, Director of Information Systems, phoenixNAP
  • “Given the sheer scale and complexity of our network and the amount of data it generates, network planning analyses often took days to compile. Using Kentik, our team gets valuable insights about our network within seconds.”
    Toru Maruta, General Manager, IP Network Department

Solutions for Hosting and Cloud Infrastructure

Peering & Interconnection

Identify remote networks to target for direct interconnection and understand the potential impacts on new and existing connectivity—to help identify peering opportunities, optimize routing, and negotiate more favorable contracts.

Benefits:

  • Find opportunities to optimize costs or improve performance via new connectivity
  • Evaluate potential peering partners and build data-driven business cases for interconnection
  • Measure traffic ratios and enforce peering agreements

Traffic Engineering

Resolve impending congestion and customer impact by identifying logical traffic groups that can be moved to alternate paths. Ensure that traffic delivery conforms to Service Level Agreements (SLAs) and maximizes utilization of costly network resources.

Benefits:

  • Make sound traffic engineering decisions
  • Automate data collection and collation for traffic engineering tasks
  • Avert capacity crises by making space for new capacity lead times

Capacity Planning

Automate network capacity planning tasks and prioritize actions using growth forecasts and projected run-out dates. Gain integrated insights into network capacity, utilization, performance, and traffic composition to ensure the best service delivery at the lowest cost.

Benefits:

  • Automates data gathering and correlation to prioritize the most critical capacity issues
  • Eliminate complex spreadsheets and manual planning processes
  • Prevent congestion surprises that impact applications or users

Hybrid/Multi-Cloud

Get a single-pane view of traffic flow across your entire app stack, regardless of whether components are deployed in one or more private, public, or hybrid clouds, or are provided across the Internet by CDNs or as API-accessible services. Zoom in for high-resolution details of individual flows, and out for holistic views of overall service health and user experience.

Benefits:

  • Understand service dependencies between new and old infrastructure
  • Plan and benchmark application migration projects
  • Plan capacity investment by seeing volume trends between on- and off-net service locations

DDoS Defense

Kentik includes the industry’s most accurate detection of DDoS attacks and other anomalies such as large-scale data exfiltration. Multi-level thresholds escalate threats as they develop, and built-in integrations enable automated triggers for internal or third-party mitigation.

Benefits:

  • Detect and defend up to 50% more attacks* (TechValidate 2017 Customer Survey)
  • Eliminate false positives/negatives and decrease response time with automatic ML-based traffic profiling
  • Visualize attack characteristics and network impact
  • Trigger automatic mitigation actions including RTBH, Flowspec, and external mitigation hardware or services
