Bodega’s cloud customers get access to Accedian tools for network and application assurance
Customers of technology solution provider Bodega Technologies will get tools to ease their transition to the cloud as part of Bodega’s new partnership with Accedian, which offers network and application performance assurance solutions.
The Lowdown: The recently announced partnership is aimed at addressing challenges in network performance that can make access to business-critical applications difficult and hurt the bottom line through downtime and lost productivity. Being able to ensure network performance will keep ongoing digital transformation and cloud migration efforts moving forward.
The Details: Customers of Bodega, which specializes in cloud, security, analytics, and DevOps, will have access to Accedian’s Skylight portfolio of solutions, including network and application analytics and visualization leveraging artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning techniques, helping them more quickly and automatically draw insights into the billions of data points. The portfolio also includes sensors for both on-premises and cloud environments that generate network and application performance data from Layer 2 through Layer 7. The sensors create metadata that can be analyzed by Skylight, which reduces the amount of data sent over the network and increases the efficiency of cloud migrations and edge environments.
In addition, Skylight control sensors create synthetic traffic that’s used to validate the performance of the network or emulate application traffic to improve visibility, particularly in situations that are difficult to monitor.
The Impact: MSPs and other channel players are increasingly being asked by customers to help them make the transition to the cloud, whether it’s private clouds, multiclouds, or hybrid clouds. The network is the key link between a company and its myriad cloud environments and the pathway to move workloads and data between them, which means enterprises need the tools to be able to more easily configure and monitor them.
Background: Accedian already had a relationship with Bodega, which is part of Accedian’s Skylight 4X Partner Program. The channel program delivers Accedian’s network and application monitoring solutions as a service to partners, including MSPs, systems integrators, resellers, and consultants.
The Buzz: “We’re excited to be working with Bodega Technologies to bolster its analytics and cloud performance offerings with Skylight, our end-to-end network and application performance visibility solution,” said Sergio Bea, vice president of global enterprise and channel sales at Accedian. “As a Champion level partner in our Skylight 4X partner program, we’re very familiar with Bodega Technologies’ capabilities, and we look forward to continuing our work together to deliver best-in-class performance analytics solutions that address the evolving needs of modern businesses moving to the cloud.”
“As more and more customers adopt a cloud strategy, it’s become increasingly important that their networks and applications run seamlessly without disruption during this process,” Bodega CEO Chris Kirschke said. “Cloud migration is often a time- and resource-intensive journey, and Accedian facilitates the process with real-time, microsecond-level performance visibility that ensures the performance of networks and applications in hybrid and cloud environments, providing end user experience equal or better to that of physical infrastructure, but with the added benefits and efficiencies of utilizing these virtual options.”
