4 Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring Best Practices To Enhance End User Experience
I’ve seen so many new types of infrastructure technologies impact the performance of the modern data center. All-flash technologies help consolidate systems, virtualization helps to deliver powerful workloads to a variety of users, and even convergence has helped remove legacy from the data center. Most of all, these solutions are all coupled with the cloud to really help an organization become agile and much more efficient. Still, as our data centers change, so will the way we keep an eye on how everything operates. And, beyond the infrastructure components that we’re monitoring and even cloud monitoring best practices; there’s a key metric business and IT leaders focus on to ensure they’re doing everything right. That is end user experience. There are some cloud infrastructure monitoring best practices to keep in mind that we will get towards the end of this blog.
