AppDynamics, a Cisco company, unveiled AppDynamics for Cisco Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI), a monitoring solution with end-to-end transaction tracing and correlated data models that pinpoint which constructs in the network are impacting application performance.

Now network and application teams have a faster path to remediation and for the first time can understand how network policies impact application performance.

Today, AppDynamics is bringing together it’s own application intelligence and Cisco ACI’s software defined networking solution (SDN) - to unlock business value by ensuring business-critical applications run flawlessly with integrated application and network level visibility. With AppDynamics for ACI, Cisco and AppDynamics provide an integrated view from the application code to the underlying network to deliver flawless performance and user experience.

“The running joke in IT is if there’s a problem that can’t be identified ‘it’s gotta be the network’” said Danny Winokur, CPO, AppDynamics. “Combining AppDynamics’ deep application insight with Cisco’s network expertise gives enterprises the fastest root cause analysis, reduced risk of unexpected application outages and greater trust across teams, leading to better customer experiences and business results.”

Only with AppDynamics for Cisco ACI are enterprises able to follow a transaction through the application and deep into the network. By correlating application and network data models, app and network teams have the fastest path to remediation by pinpointing exactly which constructs in the network are impacting application performance. With AppDynamics’ for Cisco ACI, application and network teams benefit from:

Fastest root cause analysis- AppDynamics for ACI empowers operation teams to find the root cause of incidents in minutes, from the application to the network. Teams can now spend time fixing issues instead of endless hours searching for the problem. When the network is at fault, teams can quickly drill down from the application symptoms to the underlying network endpoints to remediate the problem and restore access with minimal disruption to the end user.

Reduced risk of unexpected application outages- When NetOps make any change in the network configuration through APIC, they can now see the exact impact that change in policy has on application performance, providing critical visibility to avoid unexpected slowdowns. This is only possible because NetOps team can now directly see how their changes impact application performance without leaving ACI.

AppDynamics for ACI is available today with an Advanced APM license. Visibility of application node health within ACI is available as a beta.
