Dynatrace's fully-automated, AI-powered, full stack performance monitoring capabilities are available to customers of VMware Cloud on AWS.

Launched with initial availability in AWS US West region, VMware Cloud on AWS brings together VMware’s enterprise-class Software-Defined Data Center (SDDC) software and elastic, bare-metal infrastructure from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to give organizations consistent operating model and application mobility for private and public cloud. Dynatrace enables VMware Cloud on AWS customers to gain a deep understanding of their hyper-dynamic public, private and hybrid cloud environments.

Dynatrace’s AI-powered, full stack monitoring solution enables full transaction visibility. Its AI capabilities can continuously auto-detect dependencies, learn application behavior, detect anomalies and proactively pinpoint the root cause of performance problems. Preconfigured and automatically adjusted dashboards allow organizations to maintain visibility into their hyper-dynamic application environments during vMotion events with ease.

The automated capabilities of Dynatrace also allow users to baseline application performance and instantly identify any negative impact on resource consumption or user-experience during the migration of running virtual machines in hyper-dynamic hybrid environments. This enables them to migrate virtual machines between their private VMware vSphere-based data center and the AWS cloud with confidence, monitoring the whole vMotion event through a single pane of glass.

“Dynatrace’s longstanding collaboration with AWS provides a tried-and-tested monitoring solution for customers of VMware Cloud on AWS,” said Franz Karlsberger, Director, Strategic Partners at Dynatrace. “The AI capabilities in Dynatrace provide a way for organizations to automate the management and monitoring of these hyper-complex, hyper-dynamic environments. Its ability to auto-discover application dependencies and baseline performance, and to instantly pinpoint the root cause of performance problems before they impact the end-user will be invaluable in helping organizations maximize the benefits of VMware Cloud on AWS.”

VMware Cloud on AWS technology partners enable customers to deploy the same proven solutions seamlessly in both the public and private cloud. VMware simplifies the deployment and eliminates the need for partners to refactor solutions for VMware Cloud on AWS. If a partner solution works on-premises in a VMware vSphere environment, it will easily support VMware Cloud on AWS. VMware technology partners complement and enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS service and enable customers to realize new capabilities.

“VMware Cloud on AWS provides customers a seamlessly integrated hybrid cloud offering that gives customers the SDDC experience from the leader in private cloud, running on the leading public cloud provider, AWS,” said Mark Lohmeyer, VP Products, Cloud Platforms Business Unit, VMware. “Solutions such as Dynatrace enable IT teams to reduce cost, increase efficiency, and create operational consistency across cloud environments. We’re excited to work with partners such as Dynatrace to enhance native VMware Cloud on AWS capabilities and empower customers with flexibility and choice in solutions that can drive business value.”
