Operational Insight for Software-Defined Infrastructures

As enterprises and communication services providers move toward deploying applications in dynamic, virtualized infrastructures to meet their business agility and scalability needs, it's critical that they gain insights into the operations of both the virtual and physical infrastructure as a single entity. OpenStack™ has been one of the pioneers in the field of Software Defined Networking (SDN). Its architecture allows for flexible deployment of applications and the collection and visualization of these instances through metrics collected via both the Virtual Device and SDN controller for full end-to-end operational insight into application performance in an OpenStack™-based infrastructure.

The SevOne xStats Adapter for use with OpenStack™ provides the ability to monitor and manage network, resource and instance performance of OpenStack™ infrastructures to identify trends, monitor performance and aid with resource assurance of data center cloud infrastructure.

Operational Insight for Software-Defined Infrastructures

THis adapter leverages the REST-based APIs of the SevOne Platform enabling OpenStack™ users to address the following digital infrastructure monitoring challenges:

Infrastructure Integrity

  • Are compute nodes, network function virtualization and physical resources healthy in a constant and predictable way?

Resource Consumption

  • How much disk, capacity or CPU is a resource consuming and at what rate?
  • How much bandwidth is Service A consuming on a given virtual port?

Capacity Planning & Trend Analysis

  • When will network utilization exceed X on instance Z?

Assuring Service Availability

  • What is the availability, reliability and integrity of the services that run on a software-defined infr astructure?

 

FEATURES

 

  • Full support for the OpenStack™ Ceilometer API with support for dynamically generated metrics
  • Extensible command schema
  • Support for monitoring OpenStack™ instances via the Ceilometer API
  • The ability to integrate and correlate OpenStack™ performance data with additional network management technologies like SNMP Metrics, NetFlow data and Logs Analytics, for a comprehensive view of service performance

BENEFITS

  • Event Lifecycle: Monitor servers for performance events and generate meaningful alarms
  • Capacity Planning: Trend and predict infrastructure performance and cost
  • Resource and Service Assurance: Predictively manage service resources
  • Continuous Service Improvement: Identify and manage infrastructures that don’t perform up to specifications
