SLA Monitoring in Data Centers

Challenges

  • Ensure Service Level Agreements (SLAs) for data center and cloud service customers
  • SLAs could be related to bandwidth, application response time, security, etc.

Solution

  • Qosmos Service Aware Module® (Qosmos SAM®) integrated with virtual switch is used to monitor traffic between VMs, and between VMs and physical network
  • vSwitch uses information from Qosmos SAM to apply traffic steering (or other actions based on classified flows)

Benefits

  • Full network trouble-shooting capability, including detailed traffic visibility for VM-to-VM communication
  • Easier to comply with SLAs thanks to proactive actions based on layer 7 intelligence from SAM
