This video helps you understand the basics of cloud network monitoring.
- [Instructor] Okay, let's talk about Cloud Network Monitoring and Management. So, monitoring is a requirement for Cloud Networks, it's not an option. You have to monitor the network both proactively, in other words you're alerted to issues that come up, such as performance that we talked about in the previous video. Or, issues with network going down. Networks go down all the time. And, of course, if they go down in terms of Cloud computing, we don't have access to the remote systems, remote data, things we need to our business around. So, if you need a monitoring strategy to go along with your Cloud Network strategy.
So, ultimately this is about moving into the Cloud with a plan to make things happen. This not an adhoc sort of thing where we're just connecting one thing up to the other, and hopefully that it's going to work. This is about having a plan that we're going to implement the right technology in the right way to leverage our Cloud Computing Network to make sure it's the healthiest, the best performing, and the most cost effective. So, Cloud Network Performance and Cloud Network Monitoring Management have to be a critical thing that you do as you plan your Cloud base systems. So, it's not enough to build the thing, but we have to set up operations, ability to monitor performance, and deal with Cloud Network Monitoring and Managements and how these things are going to be monitored and viewed over time.
So, we have to govern them, we have to monitor and manage them to make sure that things go down, the network goes down, packets are lost, a router goes down, something occurs within the network, that someone's notified, so they can out out and fix it, or better yet some sort of automated procedure that able to kick itself off to repair or resolve the problem. Either temporarily or permanently. So, the types of Cloud Networking Solutions, again, we have internal, external, physical, software defined, public clouds, and the open internet. And again, monitoring just like performance, we talked about in the last video, is systemic to all of this.
Physicals, software defined, public clouds, open internet, we're never gonna be off the hook for monitoring these systems and taking responsibility for how they're going to work, long term. So, going forward, you need to understand that the monitoring management system has to be in place to deal with internal and external networks. And, all of the piece parts that are part of those systems. So, we needed to deal with tools, so which is best to watch the network, monitor the network, log the network, understand trends, spot issues. You need to deal with alerts, what's wrong now, be able to go out and fix it.
And, then we need to be proactive. You need to watch for trends, in other words the networks losing packets, could be leading up to a router failure. Those sorts of things need to be understood, and someone needs to be alerted to go out and fix those things. Monitoring does not mean just picking tools. So, this is about creating a strategy that is looking to provide the best monitoring capabilities you can. And so, complete strategy has links to performance, operations and security. And, I don't think you should skip on monitoring. It's like removing the dash board from your car. In other words, you can't drive a car without a dashboard, and I don't think you can drive a network without a monitoring solution that's gonna tell you exactly what's going on and how things are happening.
