Moving everything into the cloud seems to have taken the spotlight from the network. As the internet is ubiquitous, who worries about the networks? Kentik has a notion that in the age of cloud native, network analytics are as important as ever. In fact, network analytics may be more important than ever.
I sat down with Jonah Kowall, CTO of Kentik, to discuss this issue. Of course having Jonah here in our Digital Anarchist studios, allowed us to explore some other areas including Jonah’s experience as a Gartner analyst, and then working at AppDynamics.
Kentik is doing some really interesting things around network analytics to help app performance and even security. The use cases for this are pretty broad. From edge, to cloud (multi-cloud and hybrid), data center and containers, Kentik has a great use case.
With so much going on with NewOps, NoOps (I hate this one), AIOps, DataOps and more, it sure does seem like Ops is the place to be these days. On top of this, as much as things change, it seems that what’s old is new and no matter what, the network still matters.
