DeepField Networks is a network intelligence company founded in 2011 by Arbor Networks founder Craig Labovitz and Joe Eggleston. Coming out of stealth mode in with their tool in 2012, the company has been running operations from their headquarters in Michigan, United States.
The DeepField Cloud Intelligence monitoring tool allows clients to keep track of their network performance, peering traffic and CDN traffic. Metrics like throughput, traffic volume and latency are visualised in a dashboard.
The Cloud Genome component of Cloud Intelligence maps a variety of Internet services such as sites, cloud stores and CDNs and gives deeper insights into the entire content delivery chain.
Next to performance monitoring and the Cloud Genome tech, DeepField also offers DeepField Defender, a DDoS protection service.
While Deepfield’s intelligence includes synthetic monitoring data, we do not know if their platform is suitable for a multi-CDN setup. In addition, as DeepField does not provide a loadbalancing or CDN balancing service, nor CDNs, more is needed to make their data actionable within a multi-CDN solution.
San Francisco-based New Relic was founded by Lew Cirne in 2008, and provides an application performance monitoring (APM) SaaS platform. Since it’s foundation, New Relic has grown rapidly and besides APM now offers Mobile, Server, Browser and Synthetic monitoring. Their analytics platform Insights collects the data from these products and allows clients to gain better insights into the performance of their environment.
More clients of New Relic can be viewed on their website, which includes customer case studies.
The application performance data, and other data monitoring tools of New Relic can be used to control traffic routing within a multi-CDN solution. Based on their monitoring, traffic can be re-routed around under-performing servers, congested PoPs and other network issues.
New Relic is partnered with MaxCDN and Cedexis, demonstrating the relevance of their availability and server resource monitoring products within the CDN and web performance ecosystem.
