ThousandEyes is Internet and Cloud Intelligence technology. Its Digital Experience Monitoring platform delivers a collectively powered view of the Internet, enabling enterprises and service providers to work together to improve the quality of digital experiences. Visibility provided by ThousandEyes enables users to optimize application delivery, end-user experience, and ongoing infrastructure investments.
ThousandEyes is based on a distribution of smart agents across the Internet and enterprise, providing visibility all the way to the end user. The ThousandEyes platform leverages data collected from a fleet of vantage points throughout the global Internet, from within data centers and VPCs and on end user devices to expose dependencies that impact digital service delivery, allowing businesses to see, understand and improve how customers and employees experience websites, applications or services.
The vendor states it is currently used across industry sectors, including Silicon Valley technology companies, financial services, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, retail, manufacturing, and education. Cisco acquired ThousandEyes in 2020, to extend its monitoring and visibility portfolio.

The bad part was (in the time we used it, a year ago) a sync problem. Sometimes it did not gather all the data and therefore there were gaps in our monitoring, but this was minimal (minutes).
- Proactive identification of incidents.
- T-shooting active incidents.
Before ThousandEyes, we were not able to pinpoint the root cause of the intermittent connectivity failure with our platforms
We use our ThousandEyes monitoring solution to create test paths, quality metrics and insights to the worldwide traffic. This is a partnership gamechanger for us – and my datacenter vendors like that I can talk to their level of understanding regional traffic and customer requirements. This creates a strong partnership with my providers and by extension better service to my customers.
Conversely to my providers, I can take our tests and provide live shares to our customer's Operations teams to drill down into response times, QOS and all delivery metrics from over 100 ThousandEyes test centers to our datacenters every few minutes. We test our 14 centers every 3-5 seconds from somewhere in the world.
They are core to our building trust in our services and our infrastructure. During Thanksgiving in 2016 when there was a 10Gb core route outage in Germany affecting all of central Europe and even routes to APAC and USA. TE alerted us early and we were able to provide charts and route issues to our affected customers. It changed what their perception was of “You are failing” to “the tubes were broken”. RichRelevance earned the trust of many of our customers in Europe that day. We were able to inform our customer faster and more detailed than their carrier/provider did – allowing them to get rerouted and back up within 30 mins. We have since used this tool to solve issues across the world within minutes, from bad routes to server latency, poor page loads or problematic customer implementations. We provide access to our Consultants, engineers and even customers via our NUC loaner program.
Since then we have expanded into using the Device Layer product, Agent to Agent testing and also bought the Intel NUC's that we share with customers to place ThousandEyes Enterprise agents inside their networks when they are experiencing issues. This provides true round-trip end to end metrics/insights via their Agent to Agent testing. This has created a really great partnership with the merchant's tech teams and RichRelevance's - having champions in the IT department is an awesome card to carry.
