Accedian announced that its cloud-native performance monitoring and analytics platform, Skylight, has added significant new capabilities enabling increased performance visibility across application, cloud, and network infrastructure in a unified view.

This release combines full stack end user experience visibility with deep passive and active network infrastructure insights.

Skylight generates and analyzes huge volumes of active, high-definition network testing data and passive, traffic-based service experience data in real time to provide levels of visibility and flexibility that are not possible or available in a singular solution today. Third party data can also be added to augment Skylight sensor analysis and insights.

With Skylight, organizations will have pervasive visibility of their entire environment and the added value of enhanced analytics and data correlation, resulting in faster root cause identification of network issues, the ability to drill-down to microsecond granularity for network events, and predictive problem identification. Cloud native and orchestrated, Skylight is the complete user experience and network optimization system enterprises need today.

Skylight offers a software-based tool that is both flexible and economical—Skylight’s compact, structured and intelligent metadata technology makes it both scalable, to empower enterprises to monitor small to extremely large deployments, and able to retain historical data without the costs associated with storage of full packet captures. As a result, IT teams can gain a unified view of application and network performance across the entire organization, from headquarters and central on-premises data centers, to the cloud and remote locations.

“Enterprises are moving applications to the cloud faster than ever before but they struggle with visibility into complex, multi-tier applications. We are proud of the advances we have made to help our customers overcome these challenges by delivering the industry’s first unified network tool that provides both active and passive insights at this level of granularity and scale,” said Tom Foottit, VP Product Management, Accedian. “Skylight leverages cutting-edge technologies to offer highly accurate analysis to our customers so they can continue innovating at the accelerated pace required for leading modern businesses.”
