Cisco: Bringing It All Together in a Multicloud World
Customers have a lot of options for cloud today, but what they really need are capabilities that work together regardless of their mix of public and private clouds. Take DIRECTV, for example. DIRECTV has a complex environment that includes applications, databases, on-premise servers, infrastructure, and other networking components growing behind the scenes. The company has over 500 application profiles, and is running more than 25,000 virtual machines across six different clouds. The interaction between different cloud capabilities and tools has the potential to impact performance, cause delays, and ultimately trickle down to the customer experience.
DIRECTV is using the Cisco CloudCenter platform to manage this complex environment. CloudCenter helps DIRECTV focus on the specific needs of their applications to provision just the right infrastructure and services across their multicloud environment to deliver the quality and predictability they need. And it doesn’t stop there: DIRECTV is also using Cisco AppDynamics. While Cisco’s CloudCenter provides a deep view into DIRECTV’s application performance, AppDynamics produces proactive alerts and reports based on that performance data. Using these two capabilities together makes it possible to measure overall performance, focus on individual components, and continually monitor and tune applications to achieve better performance.
