Kentik announced general availability of Kentik Map for Azure and extensive support for Microsoft Azure infrastructure in Kentik Cloud.

With this release, Kentik provides comprehensive network observability across all multi-cloud deployments, and gives network, cloud, and infrastructure engineers the context to rapidly answer any question about their networks.

Enterprises use Kentik Cloud to optimize performance, resolve network incidents, reduce cloud costs, and maximize ROI of migrations to Azure, Google Cloud, and AWS. These latest Azure enhancements follow the recently announced release of Kentik Map for Google Cloud, underscoring Kentik's command of network observability for hybrid and multi-cloud environments.

Kentik Map for Azure visualizes Azure infrastructure in an interactive, data- and context-rich map that highlights how Azure resources nest within each other and connect to on-prem environments. Additionally, Kentik now collects, analyzes, and contextualizes traffic flow and performance data from Microsoft Azure along with data from on-prem, Google Cloud, and AWS services, enriching all network telemetry with deep application, business, and security context to provide actionable observability across all hybrid and multi-cloud environments. Organizations can now:

- Reference live visualizations of Azure infrastructure topology in Kentik Map for Azure, with both current and historical views of paths and detailed metadata

- Quickly understand path and performance details of traffic routes that connect Microsoft Azure workloads to data centers across Azure Express Routes

- Visualize and interrogate traffic across Azure Firewalls, Load Balancers, Application Gateways, and other network infrastructure

- Visualize and interrogate all branch, VPN, private cloud, and intra-cloud connectivity that is connected with Azure VWAN

- Drill into the impact of NSG (Network Security Group) configuration on security and productivity with live traffic data

- Use custom tags to add any custom context to Microsoft Azure data along with pre-built Azure-native attributes sourced from Azure APIs

- Create custom dashboards with configurable pre-built widgets to visualize important Azure cost and performance trends

"Legacy NPM and observability tools are simply not able to provide the visibility that enterprises need to understand the impact of traffic flows and performance on customer experiences," said Christoph Pfister, Chief Product Officer, Kentik. "By unifying all network telemetry, across all clouds and data centers, Kentik's latest advancements enable enterprises to make data-driven decisions, optimize resource utilization, and achieve peak performance and security for their hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure."
