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.
Now with VPC Flow Logs for AWS, and network analytics from Kentik, cloud ops teams can stop flying blind. VPC Flow Logs provide granular details of all network activity to, from, and between instances within AWS VPCs without having to instrument instances or services individually. Streamed to Kentik’s analytics-as-a-service platform in real-time, VPC Flow Logs provide powerful insight for teams across the organization.
