AppDynamics is collaborating with Pivotal to provide application intelligence solutions for Pivotal’s Cloud Native platform – Pivotal Cloud Foundry – used by some of the world’s most admired brands such as CoreLogic, Mercedes, Allstate, and Verizon.

The collaboration will provide comprehensive application performance visibility into complex public, private, or hybrid cloud deployments that leverage Pivotal Cloud Foundry, enabling more companies to embrace software as a core competency. Developers who choose Pivotal Cloud Foundry will not only be able to quickly and reliably transition to a Cloud Native enterprise, but will also be able to leverage AppDynamics’ built-in application intelligence to auto-discover, monitor, and manage transactions end-to-end. This ensures enhanced DevOps collaboration and delivers key benefits in every phase of the development lifecycle — at dev/test, in staging and deployment, and in production.

“Our Fortune 500 customers recognize software development as a key competitive differentiator in bringing new products and services to market,” remarked Nima Badiey, head of business development, Cloud Foundry, at Pivotal. “Pivotal Cloud Foundry enables today’s modern enterprise to develop Cloud Native applications for any environment, with speed, consistently and reliably. AppDynamics helps ensure enterprises realize rapid time to value by quickly identifying and resolving performance in order to deliver a superior user experience.”

AppDynamics’ integration with Pivotal Cloud Foundry simplifies developer efforts by providing add-on services as tiles that are easy to download and install, with language buildpacks to accelerate and automate the process of instrumenting millions of lines of code.

With the AppDynamics service-broker tile, a developer simply imports and configures the APM connector within Pivotal Cloud Foundry – enabling customers to quickly and easily bind AppDynamics agents to any application created on the Pivotal Cloud Foundry platform. AppDynamics is also extending support of its APM solutions to encompass Pivotal Cloud Foundry’s Java and PHP language buildpacks, broadening the total application coverage footprint. This will streamline the move to open source cloud environments, while helping to ensure the highest performance of Cloud Native applications.

In addition, AppDynamics provides advanced tag-and-follow tracing to monitor application performance as transactions traverse the most complex public, private, or hybrid cloud infrastructures. Users get holistic visibility wherever a distributed transaction executes, to quickly identify bottlenecks that can disrupt digital businesses.

AppDynamics and Pivotal are collaborating to provide a comprehensive Cloud Native environment that enterprises can rely on from the spark of an idea to production and ongoing updates — at scale — often in a matter of days.

“Pivotal is widely known for providing highly agile, Cloud Native software methodology to help enterprises compete in a digital world,” said Matthew Polly, VP of Worldwide Alliances and Business Development for AppDynamics. “We are working closely together to ensure that software-driven companies using Pivotal Cloud Foundry can proactively monitor, manage, analyze, and optimize the most complex cloud environments to achieve optimum business success.”

AppDynamics will continue to team up with Pivotal to provide enterprises and developers with the assurance that regardless of what cloud environment they choose, they can count on real-time visibility into business transactions, improved development and management, and accurate analytics for better decision-making — to achieve greater business success.

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 ...

OK, I admit it. "Service modeling" is an awkward term, especially when you're trying to frame three rather controversial acronyms in the same overall place: CMDB, CMS and DDM.

The goal was to establish a more holistic context for looking at the synergies and differences across all these areas ...

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 ...

APM tools are your window into your application's performance — its capacity and levels of service. However, traditional APM tools are now struggling due to the mismatch between their specifications and expectations. Modern application architectures are multi-faceted; they contain hybrid components across a variety of on-premise and cloud applications. Modern enterprises often generate data in silos with each outflow having its own data structure. This data comes from several tools over different periods of time. Such diversity in sources, structure, and formats present unique challenges for traditional enterprise tools ...
