The Network And The Cloud: Addressing Security and Performance

The Network And The Cloud: Addressing Security and Performance

Cloud networking or cloud-based networking is when some or all an organization’s networking resources are hosted in the cloud. This may refer to either a public, the private, and hybrid cloud which forms the basis of modern-day cloud computing framework.

Such technologies are driven by a software-defined framework, in which groups of network switches, routers, and servers can be virtualized and turned from proprietary hardware to software as a service model. The software-defined network industry is expected to grow at a progressive rate in the upcoming years.

Cloud networking technology enables cloud computing to deploy virtual machines and networks along with big data transfer and ensures low latency. Cloud networking technology includes products such as wireless LAN networks and software-defined WAN.

The use of web services can increase security risks, yet cloud computing offers many benefits for businesses, from accessibility to better customer experience. Cloud monitoring is one of the initiatives that enable companies to find a balance between their ability to mitigate risks and take advantage of the cloud, without hindering business processes. When customer data is stored in the cloud, cloud monitoring can prevent loss of business and any frustrations for the end customer by ensuring that their personal data is safe and secure.


  • Visibility: Visualize your entire multicloud infrastructure assets including your data centers, power distribution units (PDUs), bare-metal servers, network devices, private cloud (VMware and OpenStack), and public cloud (AWS and Azure) along with performance, availability, capacity, health statistics, and insights.
  • Timeliness: Information is only useful if it is with the right person at the right time who can trust the information and make informed decisions. UnityOneCloud which comes along with UPC ensures that all the network matrices are real-time.
  • Compliance: To err is human. That is why it is very important to abide by compliances and set the process from scratch using these best practices. At United Private Cloud we follow more than 35+ compliances which include GDPR and data sovereignty.
  • Auditing and Reporting: It is important to see that the right processes and the right practices are in place to keep the security engine running. Our UnityOneCloud dashboard has dynamic reporting features and we also provide third party auditing support on consulting or end to end implementation basis.


  • Separate the Crucial Metrics
  • Automate the Monitoring Process
  • Consider Cloud-based Apps Security
  • Implement multiple layers of physical and virtual security at storage

Users around the globe need reliable, secure access to the data and applications they use every day, and the distribution of apps and services across clouds and data centers is creating new challenges for IT. Traditional application delivery controllers and load balancing are no longer sufficient for accessing and delivering apps in a hybrid and multicloud world. Deploying separate solutions to address each application across a hybrid or multicloud environment can be difficult to secure and manage. It is critical to gain end-to-end visibility and analysis of applications, users, and devices across the network.

Security monitoring in cloud computing is important to be achieved in today’s scenario. It helps people in determining which employee is working with what type of business data at what time and from which location. Industries are suggested to take safety measures on time before things go unexpected and unmanageable for them.
