NetApp Cloud Insights

Control the performance and utilization of your cloud workloads

Cloud Insights is designed specifically for today’s cloud-based infrastructure and deployment technologies and provides advanced analytics on the connections between resources in the environment.

Cloud Insights is simple to use. Because it’s hosted in the cloud, it’s easy to get up and running fast. You’ll have real-time data visualization of the topology, availability, performance, and utilization of all your infrastructure, including both cloud and onpremises multivendor resources.

Cloud Insights quickly inventories what resources you have, figures out the interdependencies across them, and assembles a topology of your environment. You’ll have end-to-end visibility into what resources are supporting which applications.

There are 3 editions of Cloud Insights: Basic, Standard and Premium. Basic Edition is free to all NetApp customers. Standard and Premium editions offer additional capabilities and are priced by infrastructure being monitored. To see the current table of editions and features please visit:
