DevOps teams rely heavily on DNS to instruct internet infrastructure equipment on where to connect for a resource. But to get to that final destination you must traverse the public internet. With today's internet variability this journey can lead to unreachable destinations or endpoints, unexpected and significant performance degradations, and even redirects and hijacks that can compromise security. Current Application and Network Performance Management tools do not give the detailed internet performance insights necessary to see these internet issues let alone do anything about them.

Under these conditions it may be deemed impossible to deliver against SLAs on performance. Join us for this "Best Practices Webcast" as we demonstrate how devops managers can:

  • Best manage endpoint availability
  • Minimize service-affecting security threats
  • Mitigate performance degradation
  • Pick the best virtual partners for your service needs
  • Optimize service performance through planning
  • Reduce MTTR with integrated alerting and operations
