AppNeta provides two deployment options for AppNeta Performance Manager (APM): public cloud and private cloud. The public cloud offering runs as a service (SaaS) within the public cloud. The private cloud offering, APM-Private Cloud, runs as a virtual machine instance on a server within a customer network. APM-Private Cloud is typically used by customers whose network or security policy precludes use of the public cloud offering.
With APM-Private Cloud:
- All data remains within the customer network.
- There are no external network connections except where explicitly enabled. These include:
- Maintenance tunnel
- ISP resolution service
- Geo map service
Public cloud vs. Private cloud
Generally there is feature parity between the public and private cloud offerings with the following exceptions:
|Feature||Public cloud||Private cloud|
|Monitoring points supported||Unlimited||1000|
|Usage monitoring at 10 Gbps||Yes||No|
|Global Monitoring Point access||Yes||No|
|System-level branding options||No||Yes|
|Organization-level branding options||Yes||Yes|
There are also some differences in Data retention and roll-up.
