Cloud and virtualization are key technologies for organizations seeking
to improve the flexibility and scalability of the IT services delivered
to end users. Public cloud services from Amazon let companies run their
own applications and services on computing resources externally hosted
by Amazon. Constantly monitoring these cloud-hosted applications ensures
they perform at expected levels and ensures cloud resources are being
effectively utilized. Similarly, highly virtualized infrastructure
requires constant monitoring to optimize uptime and performance.
