Here’s what we discussed:

Observability’s goal is to free up ops team’s time to architect, build, and develop for increased orchestration, automation, uptime, and performance.

Observability for networking in the cloud looks at different telemetry and with a cloud networking spin, but is based on the same principles — answering the questions you need to run the cloud and network infrastructure that drives the digital world.

Network observability is the ability to answer any question about your network in and across public clouds, including hybrid clouds:

  • Across any kind of network (cloud or on-prem)
  • Across any kind of network element (physical, virtual, or cloud service)
  • Whether isolated at the network level or with application and business context

This is where we’re all trying to go; how are we getting there? In this session, we discussed what companies are doing to create network observability in both public and Hybrid cloud environments built on AWS, Azure or GCP. What has worked for you? What has failed miserably? We’re looking to learn from each other in this conversational roundtable session.

Here is what we learned:

Bram Harris, Cyber Security Program Director, University of Sydney

Harris said they are at the back end for their cloud transformation, but still working to get the last parts of their systems moved and keeping the experience consistent between cloud and on prem. What they learned was that the maturity of some of their on-premise systems was lost when it migrated to the cloud and they ended up having to continually adjust to build up that same level of reliability.

Yoke Kong Seow, Vice President, IT Australia, Optus

Kong Seow said they are in the midst of a similar journey moving the last of their workloads to the cloud and trying to measure the performance of those applications and understanding what will change as the last of the on prem assets move.

Most of their front-end applications are on the cloud, including the AI for their call center that they developed with Google.
