Application virtualization

Application virtualization offers significant benefits to the enterprise –helps move things to the cloud, Increase uptime, near instant-on capacity when a request comes in to run applications on a variety of operating systems. But application virtualization also poses significant challenges to application performance management software solutions (APM solutions). Application virtualization can make software almost invisible to many monitoring solutions. With virtualization, it can be extremely challenging to identify most performance problems, analyze how they are affecting the business, and isolate the root cause. Troubleshooting an intermittent slowdown in application virtualization can be extremely frustrating for even the most accomplished IT expert. And with virtualization, even simple performance metrics will return invalid or misleading data, making APM analysis almost meaningless. When seeking an APM solution that works effectively with application virtualization, more leading enterprises around the world turn to the suite of APM solutions from Dynatrace.
