Moving applications to the cloud can be a daunting task if you don’t have the right monitoring tools. A modern application performance management (APM) solution that monitors application performance before, during, and after cloud migration is absolutely essential. Businesses migrating to the cloud usually do so in three stages:
As you move through each stage of the cloud migration journey, the importance of monitoring becomes progressively more important.
During early stages of cloud migration—typically a “lift and shift” approach—monitoring most often focuses on providing data on the performance of the migrated application and on the cloud platform itself. Before you migrate an application, it’s imperative that you understand all its dependencies so that nothing inadvertently “breaks” in migration.
The ultimate goals for a monitoring solution are to identify problems as early as possible and to ensure customer satisfaction through smooth operations. Monitoring solutions adopted during the early stages of cloud migration should support application performance monitoring, cloud monitoring, network monitoring, and end-to-end monitoring.
Dynatrace gives you a full picture of your entire application environment and all dependencies. With its unique Smartscape application topology discovery and mapping technology, Dynatrace automatically:
Monitoring application performance in the cloud can be more complex than humans can manage by themselves—there are simply too many changes happening too fast. Dynatrace self-learning capabilities and artificial intelligence–powered big data analytics were built to automate smarter monitoring in today’s dynamic environments.
Microservices architecture by their very nature add complexity and overhead—and introduce new monitoring challenges:
In highly dynamic environments, nothing is static anymore. Everything is moving on the fly—scaling up and down, coming and going—all at the same time. In fact, there are simply too many changes happening too fast for human beings to keep up with themselves. An intelligent and dynamic monitoring solution is the only way to manage such dynamic environments.
