Virtualization has given IT much more flexibility and helped improve infrastructure utilization, but multiple layers of obfuscation between the users, applications and infrastructure make it increasingly difficult for IT staff to identify the root cause of performance issues.
IT lacks the tools to be able to correlate application to infrastructure performance to determine what is causing an application to become unresponsive. Existing monitoring solutions focus on specific components in the stack and can’t provide end-to-end visibility of the data center. As a result, IT staff spend much of their time fighting fires and trying to identify root cause, jumping from one tool to another looking for information, and sitting in finger-pointing meetings.
Uila’s application-aware performance monitoring software gives IT “x-ray vision” into performance across users, applications and data center infrastructure, with one click root cause analysis that saves teams countless hours of troubleshooting.
Solution - Application-centric Multi-Cloud IT Analytics
Uila solution aligns business applications and IT Operations in a single product with application visibility and correlated network, compute and storage insights across clouds boundaries.
First of all, Uila's Multi-cloud Full-stack analytics reduces troubleshooting time from days to minutes, enabling lean IT teams to get time back for more strategic projects. Uila identifies blind spots in the infrastructure, and eliminates finger pointing between infrastructure and application teams with automated root cause and forensics. With this improvement in efficiency, IT teams can now focus on business accelerations projects vs day-to-day maintenance projects.
Secondly, Uila helps organizations strategize their Hybrid Cloud migrations & maintain business continuity with zero-downtime. With Uila's agentless & automated premigration assessment, IT teams know all their applications and interdependencies beforehand, to eliminate incomplete migrations or unplanned rollbacks.
Lastly, for Multi-Cloud deployments, Uila provides a single pane of glass to monitor performance and rightsize resources across VMware, Microsoft Hyper-v, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) environments. IT teams can automatically build & visualize workload dependencies across these cloud platforms for effective monitoring. They are also empowered to rightsize resources for their workloads.
Assure application service performance with full stack visibility
The ultimate arbiter of application performance is the user. Is the application working well for them? If not, users call the help desk. But it’s notoriously hard for IT to analyze issues from the end user perspective. Even when multiple users report application performance issues, IT’s suite of monitoring tools may not reveal a clear issue.
With Uila, IT can see performance from the user perspective -- the way DevOps expects to see it. Uila’s full stack visibility enables IT to quickly identify root cause anywhere in the stack. If a user reports an outage or performance issues, IT can pinpoint where issues are occurring -- whether it’s the user’s connection, a specific virtual switch, an over-provisioned host, application or database server, or underlying storage. Uila gives IT teams:
Correlation and visibility of performance across the network, storage, host, VM, applications, databases, sites and individual users
A clear view of how infrastructure is affecting application performance
Automatic discovery of over 4,000 applications, infrastructure and dependencies between them
Reduce CapEx and OpEx by getting more out of existing infrastructure
Datacenter infrastructure is often underutilized or simply unbalanced. Resources aren’t available to applications that need them the most, but some applications have far more resources than they need, but IT teams don’t have enough information to tell the difference. This makes capacity planning challenging, and costs companies more when they buy more infrastructure than they need.
Uila gives IT teams the data they need to optimize application performance with the existing data center infrastructure with clear visibility into future infrastructure needs, based on existing bottlenecks and hotspots. Uila’s analytics across the entire application and infrastructure stack also helps IT find underutilized resources and even unused infrastructure software licenses. With Uila, IT can be much more strategic and selective when it comes time to upgrade infrastructure.
To support this, Uila’s intuitive interface gives IT:
An end-to-end dependency map of the entire infrastructure
A "flow" map that shows how your infrastructure is being used by each application
Intelligent application grouping of app, database and infrastructure componenets
Performance metrics for each site that reveal the end user perspective
