Turn cloud native chaos into business context

Considering that more than 90% of organizations leveraging public clouds are moving to a multi cloud strategy, Cisco Cloud Observability promises to “turn cloud native chaos into business context” [2]. Such cloud observability tools for cloud native applications will possibly see wider adoption if the process of setting it up can be simplified. Automations for setup, including abstractions across various cloud vendors, will allow enterprises to focus on their mission critical business applications and user experience.

Programmability for Observability Tool Integrations

The first step to observability is setting up the conduits that serve up the telemetry data from different cloud vendors to observability tools, such as Cisco Cloud Observability. Each of the cloud vendors have a proprietary method to set up and manage these data conduits. Cisco Cloud Observability APIs abstract and automate setting up the connections to the public cloud vendors and let you observe all the cloud infrastructure telemetry data with a single pane of glass.

Once cloud connections are in place, Cisco Cloud Observability normalizes telemetry data collected from multiple cloud deployments allowing developers to then program the health rules, anomaly detection, and automated actions which is crucial to proactive troubleshooting of any degradations in business applications.

This blog will be followed by a series of blogs each exploring the Cisco Cloud Observability APIs listed below. The Cloud Connections API is now available. Here are resources for it that will help you learn more and start using the API:

The following APIs are yet to be released. For now, you can click on the links below to learn more about what is coming.
