Cloud-only Synthetic Cons

Less geographic coverage

Tests are limited to cloud locations. If you care about testing in APAC, this is a serious problem.

less isp visibility

You can no longer pinpoint ISP issues — leaving you in the dark on critical issues.

less accurate measurements

Data from the cloud varies significantly. These variations cause false-positive nightmares.

Less reliable infrastructure

When the cloud goes down, so do your synthetic tests.

Cloud & Backbone Pros

More geographic visibility

A much larger geographic node coverage means you don't miss regional outages.

More clarity into root causes

Tests span the entire delivery chain, including ISPs, allowing you to pinpoint critical issues immediately.

more confidence in your data

Backbone nodes eliminate noise. This provides accurate data and reduces false positives.

more reliable infrastructure

You're never in the dark at critical moments.

"I've used a lot of monitoring tools, and Catchpoint stands out from the pack. There are so many nodes and so many features, and we're always able to present the data that's important in any fashion that we want."
