Virtualization and micro-services 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 datacenter. 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-Centric Data Center Infrastructure Monitoring & Analytics gives IT “x-ray vision” into performance across users, applications and datacenter infrastructure, with one click root cause analysis that saves teams countless hours of troubleshooting. 

Root cause fast for virtualized data center and applications

In virtualized data centers, no single tool provides full stack visibility from the end user to the application to the underlying infrastructure layer. Without this visibility, IT infrastructure and operations teams routinely struggle to identify root cause of application performance issues that pull in multiple teams and take too long to remediate.

Uila’s full stack visibility for virtualized data centers reduces troubleshooting time from days to minutes, enabling lean IT teams to get time back for more strategic projects. IT teams can identify blind spots in the infrastructure to head off performance problems at the pass, and eliminate finger pointing between infrastructure and application teams with automated root cause and forensics.

Uila’s Application-Centric Data Center infrastructure Monitoring & Analytics gives IT teams:

  • A 360 degree dashboard visualization of data center performance

  • One click root cause identification

  • An overall “health score” for datacenter infrastructure and applications

  • Agentless monitoring

  • Analytics to help solve problems quickly

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 datacenter 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 components

  • Performance metrics for each site that reveal the end user perspective
