Ipswitch and Ovum Consulting Release White Paper on Delivering IT Operational Visibility of Public Cloud Environments

Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold Network Monitoring Addresses Hidden Challenges of Uncoordinated Cloud Use and Mix of Cloud, SaaS and On-premise Technologies

BURLINGTON, Mass. – March 20, 2018Ipswitch®, producer of award-winning and easy to use secure file transfer and network management software, announced that the white paper, “On the Radar: Ipswitch – Delivering IT Operational Visibility of Public Cloud Environments,” has been released by Ovum Consulting. Key questions answered include how Ipswitch extends its network monitoring support beyond the corporate data center as well as why monitoring and visibility of cloud use is important for adding business value.

One of the hidden challenges of today’s increased uncoordinated cloud use is that it creates siloed and fragmented islands of resources that may not be centrally tracked or monitored. Cloud resources, whether in use or not, still cost money and centralized monitoring is essential to cost control. As well, the operational environments that IT departments support are a complex mix of cloud, SaaS solutions and on-premises technologies. The challenge facing many CIOs is how to access the data that is generated by these environments in a way that allows them to be viewed as a whole and in the context of the larger IT environment. Ipswitch WhatsUp Gold® network monitoring can centralize the monitoring of disparate cloud and on-premises environments to provide the necessary visibility.

“The challenge for many in IT operations is how to deliver the required level of visibility, availability, reliability and security of IT resources, irrespective of whether they are in the cloud or on-premises,” said Kevin Conklin, VP of Product Marketing at Ipswitch. “WhatsUp Gold is an integrated monitoring solution for everything connected to the network in hybrid cloud/on-premises environments, enabling organizations to effectively manage the availability and performance of critical services.”

WhatsUp Gold provides comprehensive network monitoring that includes layer 2/3 discovery and mapping. Ipswitch has dedicated out-of-the-box application monitoring support for the most popular business applications, such as Outlook 365, Microsoft Exchange, SQL, SharePoint and Active Directory. The company extends monitoring beyond the corporate data center to the public cloud instances used by organizations with support for AWS and Microsoft Azure.
