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.
