  • Performance and Trending preview feature launched. For more info please refer to the documentation here.
  • Enhancements have been made to the application stack communications algorithm that reports connectivity and visualizations.
  • Cloud pricing units have been updated to be consistent across the platform. They now report on an hourly basis.
  • The AWS region Asia-Seoul has been added to cloud pricing.
  • The page Available Reports has been added to the CloudScape platform and includes the latest preview analytics reports. The two included reports are: 1) Detailed Application Dependency Data, and 2) Private Cloud Resource Planner. To navigate to the page go to: Add Intelligence >> Available Reports.
    • Detailed Application Dependency Data – Quickly model and view any Application Stack or Location relationship to better understand integration and dependency requirements. Various filter criteria can be applied including timeframe and protocols to get a clear understanding of communication requirements most commonly used for firewall definitions and traffic rate requirements.

    • Private Cloud Resource Planner – Utilize this report to properly plan for the size, capacity and cost based on available private cloud resources. Typical Private Cloud resources are sold in bundles. To properly understand this cost, it’s important to understand how many applications could be supported by a cloud offering. From here a per application or per workload price can be derived to compare to common workload based Public Cloud offerings.

View Individual Workloads The View Individual Workloads page visualization has been enhanced so that it better represents the hierarchical data relationships inherent in the data set. Now when you toggle the protocol node, its children will collapse. The +/- symbol on the protocol node indicates whether the node is in a collapsed or expanded state. By default, any protocol node with more than 10 children will be collapsed by default.
