Blue Medora announces its Hybrid Platform Operations solution for a new level of operational visibility into Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) – including Pivotal Application Service, Pivotal Container Service built on Kubernetes and other Kubernetes distributions on AWS or Dell EMC VxRail hyper-converged infrastructures.

Blue Medora’s Hybrid Platform Operations solution lets customers dramatically accelerate operations by surfacing key metrics on the health and behavior of their hybrid platform. The monitoring integration solution provides performance from infrastructure to virtualization to orchestration, in the context of dependencies inside and across the platform. This relationship-aware data drives powerful dashboarding and intelligent alerting not possible with a single monitoring tool. It is delivered as an IT metrics app solution for vRealize Operations.

This solution can also be delivered as a Monitoring Integration as a service (MIaaS) to a range of monitoring and analytics tools, including New Relic and Microsoft Azure.

“Pivotal Ready Architecture is a great example of how Dell EMC, Pivotal and VMware have come together to transform application delivery with a turn-key experience that just works,” said Rob Smoot, VP, Cloud Management marketing, VMware. “We’re excited that partners like Blue Medora are helping customers use this innovation with operational assurance and performance insight — which complements our vRealize Operations management packs for cloud-native apps and services.”

“Our customers are rapidly adopting cloud-native approaches to delivering applications and tell us that maintaining visibility cannot be accomplished with cloud tooling alone,” comments Christian Fernando, Chief Product Officer at Blue Medora. “We’ve built this solution to address the unique challenges presented by containers and orchestration, whether in AWS or their hyper-converged data centers.”

“Cloud-native platforms like Pivotal Cloud Foundry are distributed systems capable of running thousands of different applications at scale,” explains Nima Badley, head of Pivotal Technology Ecosystem. “Reliably operating these sophisticated platforms requires modern monitoring and recovery systems. Blue Medora helps cloud operators and application developers alike monitor and share a mutual understanding of their overall system health in order to detect and recover from failures.”

The Hybrid Platform Operations visibility solution includes:

- 10 monitoring source integrations

- Cloud infrastructure: AWS ELB, S3, VPC, Budget, EC2, EBS & Auto Scaling Groups

- Hyper-converged infrastructure: Dell EMC VxRail – full cluster visibility, including VMware, ESXi, VMware vSAN, RAID group and storage node details.

- Platform/orchestration: PCF, Pivotal Container Service (PKS), Kubernetes

- Dimensional Data: a real-time metrics stream that includes highly granular behavioral detail — beyond what a single endpoint API connection might include — as well as rich relational context.

- Intelligent data collection: Agentless IT metrics data integration, with resource auto-discovery and touchless management

- Operational dashboards: Pre-built custom dashboard templates deliver Dimensional Data in operational context for relational visibility
