23 Mar ThousandEyes Releases Global Internet Outages Map
Provides visibility into business and consumer-impacting Internet outages around the world
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ThousandEyes, the Internet and Cloud Intelligence company, today released its Global Internet Outages Map, an at-a-glance visualization of global Internet health powered by ThousandEyes Internet Insights™. The always-on map gives businesses a near real-time understanding of ongoing and recent Internet outages that may be impacting the end user experiences of their customers or employees.
“Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve been inundated with requests from businesses, industry analysts and other various parties wanting to get a better understanding of global Internet health during these trying times,” said Mohit Lad, co-founder and CEO of ThousandEyes. “Today, we’re thrilled to release the Global Internet Outages Map to give businesses and consumers alike a reliable source based on actual internet telemetry instead of public rumor to help them understand what’s happening on the Internet at any point in time.”
ThousandEyes vantage points around the world perform billions of measurements each day to detect when traffic flows are disrupted within ISPs, public cloud networks and other service providers. This network telemetry data is algorithmically analyzed as part of ThousandEyes’ core Digital Experience Monitoring platform and the macro outages that are detected are displayed on an interactive map as part of ThousandEyes’ Internet Insights™ offering.
While the Global Internet Outages Map makes the global Internet health data provided in Internet Insights free for the world to see and use, Internet Insights customers gain even deeper insights by being able to see the impact the macro scale Internet events have on their own environments. This allows them to rapidly identify, escalate and remediate business-relevant Internet issues, and communicate more effectively with both customers and providers.
