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, Neustar


“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 Detect, our team gets valuable insights about our network within seconds.”

Toru Maruta, General Manager, IP Network Department, KDDI
