Today’s digital enterprises are leveraging IaaS and PaaS to build, test, and run applications in the cloud. Cloud infrastructure and platforms enable businesses to reduce the cost and time involved with creating and launching new applications and features, and to easily scale applications up and down in response to end user demand. With those benefits, however, come new challenges including the inherent difficulties of cloud application monitoring.
Cloud application monitoring, beyond the obvious hurdles that are raised when application owners are physically remote from their applications, is vexed by cloud infrastructures that are heterogeneous, heavily virtualized, and highly dynamic. While challenging, cloud application performance monitoring is also critically important because of consumption-based cloud pricing that creates a business imperative to use no more cloud resources than are needed to meet key application performance goals.
