AWS VPC Flow Logs for Kentik

Suffering from Cloud Blindness?

The migration of applications from traditional data centers to cloud infrastructure is well underway. And it’s tempting to think that “the network” is just one of the many infrastructure management headaches that disappear after migrating to the cloud. However, most organizations find that understanding the network behavior of cloud-deployed applications is still a critical part of ensuring their availability and performance. But pervasive visibility of network traffic details hasn’t been available in the cloud.
