Don't Fly Blind with Cloud-only Monitoring

View our 5-minute video on why cloud-only synthetic monitoring is problematic.



Pilots don’t like flying through clouds because they lose visibility. They receive special training on how to rely on their instruments when visibility is reduced – all they can see is the cloud. When monitoring your applications to ensure speed, reliability, and availability, don’t lose visibility by monitoring only from the cloud.

Your users are accessing your website and applications from their homes, offices, and while on the road, not from the cloud. To get the most visibility into their experiences, monitor from where they are.

In this video breakdown, learn about:

  • Blindspots from using synthetic monitoring from cloud-only locations
  • Cloud-only's negative impact on performance data accuracy
  • Cloud's coverage of broad geographies but not regional and city-level metrics
  • How to accurately monitor distributed systems with distributed vantage points
