Organisations are increasingly adopting multi-cloud strategies and modern application development to meet the requirements of being a modern digital business. However, managing and monitoring app performance across these distributed environments is complex and requires integrated observability across the tech stack that traditional, siloed monitoring tools can’t provide.

“VMware Tanzu Observability by Wavefront delivers enterprise-grade observability and analytics for multi-cloud and Kubernetes environments at scale, allowing our customers to quickly troubleshoot and reduce performance bottlenecks across their infrastructure and applications, and in turn, achieve higher availability of business-critical services to their end-users'', said Ajay Patel, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Modern Applications & Management Business Group.
