ThousandEyes has opened a sales and services operation in Sydney and appointed Will Barrera as regional sales manager for ANZ.
"We are seeing a rapid increase in demand for our Internet and digital experience visibility solution as the region’s businesses are increasingly relying on the cloud and Internet as the key delivery mechanism for their customer and employee digital experiences, yet they lack the ability to see the end-to-end digital experience service delivery path," said Barrera.
"We are excited to build out a key hub for ThousandEyes in Sydney, provide our customers with instant visibility into the cloud and Internet, and do our part to help accelerate overall cloud adoption in the region."
He previously worked for Torokina Networks, Promina, Soul, Telstra, WorldCom, IBM and Policy Management Systems.
In related news, ThousandEyes released its Public Cloud Performance Benchmark Report for Australia to help IT leaders understand key performance differences between the ‘big three’ public cloud providers.
The report measured user-to-cloud connectivity from 27 user locations deployed in data centres around the globe to 55 cloud regions — including Sydney and Melbourne — across all three public cloud providers.
Unlike Azure and Google Cloud Platform, AWS sends traffic over the Internet for the majority of the service delivery path, resulting in greater operational risk and impact on performance predictability.
“For the first time, Australian cloud customers have the data to show the architecture and connectivity differences between the big three public cloud providers to reliably predict application performance when making global multi-cloud decisions," said report author and product marketing director at ThousandEyes, Archana Kesavan.
