AppDynamics has strengthened its collaboration with Red Hat.

AppDynamics’ agreement with Red Hat enables enterprises to use OpenShift by Red Hat and Red Hat JBoss Middleware technologies, and build in application intelligence from AppDynamics to help customers develop high performing applications faster and with more confidence. DevOps teams and line-of-business managers can work in tandem to accelerate the delivery of performance-optimized applications created using Red Hat software throughout the application lifecycle.

The Red Hat-AppDynamics collaboration is also aimed at enabling more efficient migration of existing enterprise applications to OpenShift, Red Hat's award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution, and private clouds, while enabling apps to consistently perform as they did in their original environment.

“Our integration with AppDynamics enables us to provide developers using Red Hat software with application intelligence throughout the entire development process,” said Rob Cardwell, VP, Application Platforms, Red Hat. “Whether developers choose OpenShift or Red Hat JBoss Middleware, they can quickly develop and deploy dependable applications across the hybrid cloud.”

AppDynamics’ intelligent agents are instrumented into container images that streamline the development of applications for private clouds using OpenShift by Red Hat. This enables enterprises to auto-discover, monitor, and manage business transactions from end to end for optimized application and business performance. Developers using earlier versions of OpenShift Enterprise can enjoy similar benefits thanks to AppDynamics' intelligent agents injected into cartridges that contain libraries, source code, build mechanisms, and other critical development components.

Enterprises that rely on the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform or the entire Red Hat JBoss Middleware portfolio also benefit from AppDynamics’ built-in application intelligence. AppDynamics injects bytecode into applications to capture key metrics on the health of JBoss EAP servers and OpenShift PaaS environments—in addition to tracking memory usage by Java virtual machines — with minimal system overhead.

AppDynamics and Red Hat are working closely together on co-engineering, co-marketing, and co-sales efforts. The goal is to better address digital businesses that are using custom applications for new consumer touch-points. The collaboration is aimed at streamlining Red Hat developer efforts to create reliable, high-performing applications, and opens the door to new opportunities in an increasingly digital age.

“We are excited to be able to integrate our application intelligence with Red Hat solutions for customers that choose to develop and manage their private environments with Red Hat software,” stated Matthew Polly, VP of Worldwide Alliances and Business Development for AppDynamics. “Our objective is to make it faster and easier to bring high performance to every phase of the software development and management lifecycle, so businesses can perform their best.”

AppDynamics is committed to continued work with Red Hat to help enterprises and developers deliver higher application performance and superior consumer experiences using applications developed with Red Hat software.

Performance monitoring is an old problem. As technology has advanced, we've had to evolve how we monitor applications. Initially, performance monitoring largely involved sending ICMP messages to start troubleshooting a down or slow application. Applications have gotten much more complex, so this is no longer enough. Now we need to know not just whether an application is broken, but why it broke. So APM has had to evolve over the years for us to get there. But how did this evolution take place, and what happens next? Let's find out ...

If you have deployed a Java application in production, you've probably encountered a situation where the application suddenly starts to take up a large amount of CPU. When this happens, application response becomes sluggish and users begin to complain about slow response. Often the solution to this problem is to restart the application and, lo and behold, the problem goes away — only to reappear a few days later. A key question then is: how to troubleshoot high CPU usage of a Java application? ...

Operations are no longer tethered tightly to a main office, as the headquarters-centric model has been retired in favor of a more decentralized enterprise structure. Rather than focus the business around a single location, enterprises are now comprised of a web of remote offices and individuals, where network connectivity has broken down the geographic barriers that in the past limited the availability of talent and resources. Key to the success of the decentralized enterprise model is a new generation of collaboration and communication tools ...
