Akamai Technologies and BMC Software have released Edgeview powered by BMC Software, a virtual software appliance that provides companies with visibility into the performance of Web applications delivered over the Akamai Platform.

To help companies prove ROI and ensure peak performance of the increasing number of mission-critical applications being moved to the cloud, Edgeview powered by BMC Software gives companies using Akamai’s Dynamic Site Accelerator and Web Application Accelerator solutions independent, third-party insight into the end-user experience and Web application performance.

“Today’s leading enterprises demand real-time, global visibility into the experience of end users to ensure consistent quality of service,” explained Dennis Drogseth, VP at EMA, an IT and Data management industry research analyst firm headquartered in Portsmouth NH. “As businesses continue to take advantage of the cloud for application delivery, validating the investment in application acceleration and other cloud-delivered technologies becomes even more important. EMA believes that cloud service providers will divide themselves into two categories: commodity providers and partners able to work with enterprise customers in meeting critical SLAs. Through its partnership with BMC, Akamai has clearly established itself within the partner category.”

“The Edgeview powered by BMC Software solution gives Akamai customers excellent visibility into the ongoing performance of their cloud-accelerated applications,” says Willie Tejada, Vice President of Application and Site Acceleration at Akamai. “This new offering is designed to help organizations ensure the best possible end-user experience and demonstrate the return on investment from their cloud strategies.”

An easy-to-deploy, virtual software appliance, Edgeview powered by BMC Software collects Web performance data from three sources: the customer’s data center, the end-user’s browser and the Akamai Platform. Sophisticated analysis compares the performance of applications and sites accelerated by Akamai with those that are not, helping to determine where performance issues may exist and providing the data required to calculate the value derived from Akamai’s global platform. This enables IT and line of business managers to make informed performance management decisions.

Edgeview powered by BMC Software also provides historical performance data so IT professionals can determine when specific problems occurred, the severity of incidents plus regions and users impacted.
