Cloud Services Accounting (CSA), put simply, provides monitoring and reporting over the bandwidth consumed by cloud services. Why should your organization care? Well, if you’re seeing more and more of your apps shed their mortal, datacenter-rooted shells and rise into the cloud, how they perform and the bandwidth they are consuming are bound to have effects on the bottom line.
In a company statement, eTelemetry’s CEO, Ermis Sfakiyanudis, explains, “The migration of business critical applications to the cloud services model has put a new focus on the availability of bandwidth to support required levels of service. The Internet connection is now a vital link to an enterprise’s business critical applications.”
He adds that the new capability “features offer companies real insight into how often these applications are being used and their impact on the network, providing critical visibility and control for effective bandwidth allocation and management.”
Add this to Metron’s bandwidth prioritization functionality, and you can have those “don’t you #&%$!^@ dare timeout on me” apps working at their peak, no matter how many folks on your network are watching keyboard cat playing out another poor sap.
