Kentik Cloud: GCP Map v1 Launch
We are excited to announce Version 1.0 of Kentik Map for GCP, which provides an analogous experience to the AWS and Azure maps in Cloud.
While the concept is largely the same, there are some differences in the GCP map organization compared to our AWS and Azure maps based on the way resources are organized in GCP.
For example, in contrast to the AWS topology map, which groups VPCs by region, the GCP map groups regions by VPC. Each region has its subnets listed beneath it.
The searchable GCP map displays traffic and routing data for the resources shown. We enable support for historical views back into your topology and metadata in GCP.
Visualizations from the GCP map include:
- VPN gateways with associated on-prem and cloud routers, networks, regions, subnets, interconnect attachments, and VM interfaces
- Static link paths for on-prem routers and external VPN gateways
- Traffic links generated from subnets and internet types
- Aggregated regional traffic classified as inbound, outbound, or internal
In the coming months, we will continue building GCP observability to achieve parity with our AWS and Azure offerings, adding functionality such as security group support.
Our platform aims to provide customers full support for all clouds with a consistent user experience. Kentik Cloud abstracts away the differences in cloud network interfaces to maintain cohesive multi-cloud workflows in the Kentik Portal.
Setup instructions for the GCP Map are here in our Knowledge Base.
