Digital experience monitoring company ThousandEyes says it has undergone a significant expansion of its cloud monitoring coverage, including the addition of new global Alibaba Cloud monitoring capabilities.

ThousandEyes says the increased coverage builds on its fleet of Cloud Agents providing global monitoring vantage points from major cloud providers such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), and Microsoft Azure - as well as global data centres and major ISPs, giving enterprises “unmatched visibility and the ability to measure application and network-layer performance metrics for any website, application or service”.

ThousandEyes announced in May that it was expanding into the Australia and New Zealand markets with the opening of a sales and services operation in Sydney and the appointment of Will Barrera as regional sales manager for ANZ.

Commenting on the cloud monitoring expansion, ThousandEyes vice president of product Joe Vaccaro said: “Global organisations today run on the Internet, connecting applications and services to end-users everywhere, and making deep Internet visibility non-negotiable, which is especially relevant for companies operating in Asia-Pacific where heavy sovereign controls impact Internet performance and digital experience.”

“ThousandEyes already provides unparalleled visibility into how AWS, GCP and Azure impacts digital experience delivery, and by adding the ability to monitor Alibaba Cloud performance to the mix, global enterprises operating in Asia-Pacific and beyond are empowered with the visibility and control they need to improve customer experiences and business performance.”

ThousandEyes says it has now added 19 Alibaba Cloud regions worldwide, plus 13 new Cloud Agent locations across Asia-Pacific, including four new locations in India - bringing Asia-Pacific vantage points to a total of 53 cities and global vantage points to a total of 184 cities.

And Vaccaro says this latest expansion adds to its existing Cloud Agent locations in IaaS providers, which currently includes 15 AWS regions, 15 GCP regions and 25 Azure regions.

“Now, IT teams can leverage pre-provisioned and easy-to-deploy vantage points in IaaS to measure inter-region, hybrid and inter-cloud performance, map network paths and monitor connectivity between a combination of on-premises and cloud data centres,” Vaccaro says.

”Companies are also enabled to adopt a data-driven approach when planning multi-cloud deployments, as well as provide immediate visibility into application delivery, network behaviour and inter-service dependencies, and their impact on digital experience.”
