Dynatrace shows Cloud leadership becoming an AWS advanced technology partner

We’re excited to announce that Dynatrace is now a technology partner in the AWS Partner Network. Since the launch of Dynatrace last September, we’ve had the opportunity to work with a number of AWS customers, enabling them to more efficiently manage their applications in AWS.

As Dynatrace itself runs on Amazon Web Services, we know firsthand what’s needed to provide effective monitoring within . Everything we build is tested and optimized against our own AWS installations.

Advanced monitoring on top of AWS CloudWatch

A few weeks back we announced monitoring support that leverages data gathered via AWS CloudWatch. Here are the highlights:

  • Detailed insights into resource usage.
  • Analysis of auto-scaling group dynamics.
  • Seamlessly integrated application and infrastructure insights.

For more details, see Dynatrace support for AWS monitoring. Best of all, if you’re a Dynatrace customer, you get all of this for free.
As always, we’ve kept the installation as quick and easy as possible. Just provide your CloudWatch credentials to set up integration with Dynatrace.

Dynatrace in the AWS marketplace

From both a technology perspective and a cost perspective, Dynatrace has proven to be the perfect monitoring solution for dynamic cloud environments. Dynatrace is now available via the AWS marketplace (we have our first 5-star review and can’t wait to get more).

Our consumption-based “pay as you go” pricing model fits perfectly with the way you consume your cloud services—hourly, without any commitments. Visit our website to learn more about Dynatrace pricing

Support for AWS startups: AWS Activate

At Dynatrace, we love and live by the principles of the lean startup. And we want to support other startups by enabling them to use the best available monitoring solution, even if they’re on a tight budget. As part of the Activate program, we’re offering a powerful monitoring package—worth about $10,000 USD—for only $100 USD. This gives you a full year of Dynatrace monitoring!

Engaging with the AWS community

We’re very proud of what we’ve built at Dynatrace and we enjoy sharing our knowledge about how we created a world-class SaaS platform with an incredibly fast time-to-market (80 days). We recently presented at the AWS Pop-Up Loft in San Francisco. The slides are available online. If you have any questions, just leave us a comment.

At the end of June we’ll be at the AWS Summit in Berlin. If you’re nearby, stop by and get some firsthand experience with Dynatrace. We’ll be hosting three talks on a range of subjects related to running a business via AWS:

  • Running a global monitoring service in AWS: Lessons learned
  • Ensuring availability and performance of large-scale AWS deployments

More to come

We’re currently working hard on extending our AWS support even further. We’ll be releasing new features in the coming months, so stay tuned.
