Oracle has announced availability of the Internet Intelligence Map, providing users with a simple, graphical way to track the health of the internet and gain insight into the impact of events such as natural disasters or state-imposed interruptions.
The map is part of Oracle's Internet Intelligence initiative, which provides insight and analysis on the state of global internet infrastructure.
For more than a decade, members of Oracle's Internet Intelligence team have broken some of the biggest stories about the internet. From BGP hijacks to submarine cable breaks, Oracle's Internet Intelligence team frequently publishes objective data and analysis that informs public understanding of the technical underpinnings of the internet and its effects on topics like geopolitics and e-commerce.
With today's news, Oracle is now making core analytic capabilities available to everyone via the Internet Intelligence Map. Using one of the world's most comprehensive internet performance data sets and backed by years of research and analytics, Oracle has developed the premier resource and authority for reliable information on the functioning of the internet.
"The internet is the world's most important network, yet it is incredibly volatile. Disruptions on the internet can affect companies, governments, and network operators in profound ways," said Kyle York, vice president of product strategy for Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and the general manager for Oracle's Dyn Global Business Unit. "As a result, all of these stakeholders need better visibility into the health of the global internet. With this offering, we are delivering on our commitment to making it a better, more stable experience for all who rely on it."
The Internet Intelligence Map presents country-level connectivity statistics based on traceroutes, BGP, and DNS query volumes on a single dashboard. By presenting these three dimensions of internet connectivity side-by-side, users can investigate the impact of an issue on internet connectivity worldwide.
"It's important to have a global view of the internet in order to understand how external events prevent users from reaching your web-based applications and services. It is only when you have this insight that you can work around those issues to improve availability and performance," said Jim Davis, Founder and Principal Analyst of Edge Research Group.
The Internet Intelligence Map is just one of many advanced awareness and visibility tools that help Oracle improve the experience of the cloud by making it better and more reliable every day. This offering is powered by Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, which offers a set of core infrastructure services to provide customers the ability to run any workload in the cloud. Only Oracle Cloud Infrastructure provides the compute, storage, networking, and edge services necessary to deliver the end-to-end performance required of today's modern enterprise.
