Hawkeye Express monitors and tests cloud applications on any third-party
public cloud

Keysight Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:KEYS), a leading technology company
that helps enterprises, service providers, and governments accelerate
innovation to connect and secure the world, has expanded the Ixia
visibility portfolio with Hawkeye
Express
, a software-as-a-service (SaaS) extension to the Hawkeye
network assessment and monitoring platform. Hawkeye Express enables
customers to monitor and test cloud applications on any third-party
public cloud platform to ensure a consistent quality of experience (QoE)
for end users.

The migration of applications to the public cloud presents new
challenges in the way enterprises monitor networks and applications.
This includes losing the ability to perform network performance
monitoring, as well as assessment troubleshooting with traditional tools
due to lack of access to the delivery infrastructure and packets in the
public Internet and cloud.

"As enterprises migrate their applications to the public cloud, they are
faced with diminishing control of their application performance," said
Recep Ozdag, vice president, product management for Keysight's Ixia
Solutions Group. "The Hawkeye Express active monitoring solution
provides visibility and troubleshooting capabilities that provide users
access to their cloud and WAN services. Using Hawkeye Express allows
customers to truly understand network and application performance to
ensure a consistent quality of experience for their end users."

Hawkeye Express is a cloud-based SaaS solution based on
active, synthetic monitoring that delivers visibility into public and
private infrastructure and services. Hawkeye Express enables users to:

  • Gain visibility into infrastructure between sites – by deploying
    endpoints on each site, they can monitor network performance between
    sites using performance assessments, regular reporting and alarms when
    services degrade
  • Monitor cloud access infrastructure continuously – they can monitor
    and troubleshoot problems at third-party service providers networks by
    performing access verifications and pinpointing to problems
  • Understand capacity of a network or equipment – they can verify
    equipment and infrastructures in the lab or in the network using
    software or hardware endpoints as traffic injectors and benchmarking
    equipment and traffic models.
