Microsoft Intros Network Performance Monitor

Microsoft Intros Network Performance Monitor

Microsoft presents the Network Performance Manager-- a means for Operations Management Suite (OMS) customers to diagnose network connectivity problems affecting hybrid cloud setups.

Part of the Log Analytics services in the OMS IT management and monitoring offering, Network Performance Manager continuously tests for reachability between various points on the network across public clouds, datacentres and user locations. As a result it enables admins to quickly identify a specific network segment or device causing problems, such as performance dips below a desired threshold.

Network Performance Monitor appears as an own tile in the OMS portal. It does not require direct access to network devices, meaning it can be used to supplement existing network management tools. As a standalone solution, it supports several use cases, including monitoring the health of connections between on-premises networks and public clouds, as well as the monitoring of links between multiple datacentres and office connected via public or private networks. Microsoft recommends customers use two agent for each subnet they want to monitor.

Gartner: WW Public Cloud Services Grow 18% in 2017

According to Gartner the global public cloud services market will grow by 18% in 2017 to total $246.8 billion, up from $209.2bn in 2016.

The highest growth in 2017 is set to come from IaaS-- 36.8% to reach $34.6bn. SaaS follows, with growth reaching 20.1% for revenues worth $46.3bn, even if such growth is forecast to slow down "slightly" in later years as SaaS offerings (namely HCM and CRM) mature.

"The overall global public cloud market is entering a period of stabilisation, with its growth rate peaking at 18% in 2017 and then tapering off over the next few years," the analyst remarks. "While some organisations are still figuring out where cloud actually fits in their overall IT strategy, an effort to cost optimise and bring forth the path to transformation holds strong promise and results for IT outsourcing (ITO) buyers. Gartner predicts that through 2020, cloud adoption strategies will influence more than 50% of IT outsourcing deals."
