Running your customer-facing or workforce applications in the cloud brings benefits but also new challenges. The challenges center around cloud application management. In particular there is the challenge of achieving full visibility into the day-to-day operation and performance of your cloud applications, and maintaining the ability to troubleshoot, rectify, and optimize cloud performance. Many businesses large and small, across a variety of industries, are finding Dynatrace to be the ideal solution to meet cloud application management challenges and maximize returns on cloud expenditure.
Full lifecycle cloud application management from Dynatrace
For applications built and operated in IaaS or PaaS clouds, Dynatrace delivers comprehensive cloud application management capabilities across the full application lifecycle:
Dev and test. Dynatrace integrates with leading IDEs, build systems, and other DevOps automation tools to provide early insight into the performance characteristics of applications and application components as they’re being developed and tested in the cloud. With unified support for all major public and private cloud stack technologies, Dynatrace eliminates the need for single-purpose tools such as EC2 monitoring tools or OpenStack monitoring tools.
Pre-launch. Before your new or improved cloud application goes live, make certain it meets your performance requirements by subjecting it to realistic traffic loads from the Dynatrace global synthetic monitoring network – the world’s largest and most versatile.
Operations. The core of cloud application management is monitoring and ensuring the health of live applications. Dynatrace transaction monitoring tools trace 100% of transactions across all cloud application tiers including application servers, web services, containers and microservices, and SQL or NoSQL databases. With intelligent baselining and alerting, and complete visibility for every transaction down to the level of method invocations and database calls, Dynatrace empowers Ops teams to quickly identify performance problems and Dev teams to quickly troubleshoot and fix those problems.
For an on-premise application that you want to migrate to the cloud, Dynatrace cloud migration tools allow you to analyze the on-premise application’s performance and resource utilization patterns, intelligently determine your capacity needs in the cloud, and then – after the migration – make direct and granular comparisons between the application’s cloud-based performance and its prior on-premise performance, to make sure the cloud migration is meeting your needs and expectations.
Benefits of Dynatrace cloud application management
By using Dynatrace for cloud application management your application team can:
