In order to deliver services reliably in an increasingly virtualised world, companies need seamless access to performance metrics across their entire infrastructure, whether on-premises or in private/hybrid/public cloud. However, vendors of virtualised infrastructure platforms and services and in-house technology providers struggle to provide effective performance SLAs.

In this session, Bloor Research will highlight what is needed to realise vendor-agnostic performance monitoring and Virtual Instruments will discuss how they are addressing these challenges.
