Enterprise IT is trending toward the deployment of private or hybrid clouds, and OpenStack is often the technology on which those clouds are built. OpenStack is an open source cloud operating system that controls the provisioning and operation of integrated compute, storage, and networking resources within a highly virtualized data center. With more applications running on the OpenStack platform, there is growing interest in OpenStack monitoring tools that can help operations teams to gauge and tune the performance of the platform. Dynatrace OpenStack monitoring stands out for the breadth of functionality and technology coverage and for the ability to monitor not just pure private or pure public clouds that utilize OpenStack, but also hybrid clouds that may span multiple types of cloud platform.
