Kentik Network Monitoring
The versatility. Kentik was able to tell me so much about what was happening in the network. Normal traffic, abnormal... it was a lovely tool to show customers what they were doing. I was able to analyze what I needed to know so I knew who to peer with.
Versatility comes with a price - Kentik was very complicated to use. If you didn't use it very frequently, you generally forgot how.
Kentik must have if you try to be proactive
Kommentare: First when we turned up kentik for our DDoS offering I needed to send API calls to more than one destination as we have multiple Scrubbing Centers. I wanted both Scrubbing Centers to work in Active/Active mode. Kentik at the time did not provide that option and we would have to maintain 2 policy's for each Scrubbing Center. This is an administrative nightmare but Kentik's response to my problem was to give them a week to make this happen. I was stunned on how fast they were able to turn this around
Kentik approached me about their netflow extremely fast query capabilities. I just brushed my shoulders because I didn't think there was any problems with my in-house netflow server. When I agreed to test out their product I was extremely shocked that any query I ran was single digit seconds vs 30-50minutes that I was used to.Setting up trigger alerts is fairly simple and you get countless of options on your alert mechanism. This is CRITICAL to TierPoint to be quick AND accurate because it triggers an API call to our DDoS Scrubbing Centers to take the bad traffic away from our Data Centers and re-route them to our Scrubbing Centers to save our backbone from DDoS Attacks
Netflow and SNMP data is preferred to go to Kentik direct over the Internet. I truly don't like to have my SNMP features enabled on the outside network so they have a kProxy product that sits on your inside network to collect the data. At first kProxy was challenging to get going but it came a long way and it's been SOLID for more than a year now. This is not a Con anymore but this is all I can think of.
Kentik for Managed Service Providers
Kommentare: Initially, it was a good fit as a predominantly 'in-house' tool. As we have exposed this data to customers, and used it more, we have found that the shell looks really good but the inner workings are suspect. Also, its rather pricy for the value it brings. We had high hopes for My.Kentik but those have failed to materialize.
Like most SaaS consumption models, your deployment is extremely easy. Setting up dashboards is rather intuitive (for engineers) and the filtering capability is really good.
For a SaaS company, their updates have broken core functionality. In short, I would say their regression testing is lacking. The My.Kentik Portal is a beta product. The entire premise is to expose the dashboards and panels you create to your customers or other business units/non-technical staff. In reality, this is just another window, that does restrict user access (thank you), but its still the same clunky UI that works well for technical people but not customers. Additionally, it is mired with the same bugs as the standard UI and more. Most of the errors are around their timeline but there are other errors that cause major concern like data inconsistencies.
Kentik - Fanatstic Analytics for your network!
Kommentare: We are a network organization responsible for providing a variety of network services. One of our most critical services is Internet and Internet2 connectivity. Providing this type of service requires us to maintain multiple peering relationships with multiple service providers. Kentik is our "go to" product for analyzing customer and service provider traffic to help us determine when and where to add additional resources. This has taken a lot of the guess work out of understanding what our network is doing and why, enabling us to be much more efficient in our deployment of additional or larger network peers.
Kentik is fantastic at reporting flow based network data. This was a game changer for us (we are primarily a networking based group). The interface for reporting on network traffic is very easy to use and is very comprehensive. This is definitely our "go to" product for analyzing traffic trends.
Not much I can say here. The product is great for our use case and we have had no real issues for the time we have been a customer.
Kentik - Indispensable in managing your business
Kommentare: We use Kentik as a means and an end. I explain. As a means we use Kentik in ISP analysis, identifying traffic types and peerings opportunities. In this case, the level of assertiveness, information update and granularity are incomparable. As an end, we deal with Kentik in South and Central America. Our clients show enormous satisfaction with the platform. In addition to the functionalities already mentioned, I hear statements about how the control over what happens in the network and in the operation has improved.
Kentik brings together a number of important features in business management. Especially in our peering management work, I like the level of granularity of information from CDN/OTT Analytics, Discover Peers, and Flow Analytics. I understand how important Protect and Synthetics are to businesses and I find Kentik's interface very user-friendly, intuitive and inviting.
I understand that Kentik could in the near future consider having its own scrubbing center, with an affordable cost of the complete solution, like Wanguard or Arbor. More and more customers are concerned about volumetric attacks and combining the solutions in many cases is beyond the available investment budget.
